Good morning everyone! Welcome to your week!
Thanks to two days of lovely humidity 🙂 I have been sweating non-stop for well…two days! This morning was no exception and I returned from my Mom walk ready for a cold shower and an icy cold smooooothie! A Cinnamon-Vanilla Almond Butter & Banana Smoothie!
In the mix:
- 1 medium frozen banana
- 1 vanilla Oikos yogurt
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 T Barney Butter
- splash of vanilla and cinnamon
This baby is packed with protein between the yogurt, milk and almond butter and is sure it keep me full until lunch! And it tastes great, to boot!
That Greek yogurt gives the smoothie such a, well, smooth texture – it’s just fantastic.
For lunch I packed a salad that certainly won’t be winning any beauty contests – but it’s going to be AWESOME!! Mixed greens with Barley Salad.
I literally can’t wait for this salad – that barley mixture is soooo tasty!
I also packed some fresh grapes. These are an absolutely perfect snack for the afternoon 🙂 Portable, easy to eat and a little burst of sugar to get me through an afternoon slump!
Well my smoothie did the trick – I am cool as a cucumber now and ready to start my Monday. It’s going to be a busy one!!
What’s your favorite snack to get you through an afternoon slump?
Have an AMAZING Monday – make it great!
