How was your Monday! Mine started off with another delicious Green Smoothie. I usually go through breakfast phases pretty quickly. For two weeks I'll want nothing but oatmeal, then eggs, then waffles, but I've been on this green smoothie kick for over a month and I'm still loving it. I think the fact that my smoothie is actually different every morning really helps! Here is this morning's beauty!
- Large handful of Spinach
- 1/4 large avocado
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 4 frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup Chobani 0% Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp. Flax seed
- 1 cup water
- 5 ice cubes
- 1 packet of Stevia
Now, on to the workout of the day! Summer and bathing suits are just around the corner, and this workout can whip your booty into shape with only your body weight and a medicine ball!
