We had a hectic night last night with our youngest waking up late for his feeding and then not being able to go back to sleep until 1:30am and our toddler falling asleep early (5:30pm) and waking up at 12:30am, coming into our youngest’s room and having a party making snow angels on the floor. Thank goodness they both slept straight from that point until this morning.

To energize (and because I didn’t have a lot of time this morning) I made a protein shake.

🔹1/4 organic 1% milk
🔹2 scoops arbonne chocolate protein powder
🔹1 banana
🔹1 cup spinach
🔹1 cup pineapple
🔹1 cup raspberries
🔹1/2 tsp chia seeds
🔹2 tbsp hemp seeds
🔹1 tbsp peanut butter

Add ice if you’re not using frozen fruit and like a cold shake.

Chocolate Berry Protein Shake
🔹1/4 cup organic 1% milk

🔹1/2 cup blueberries

🔹1/2 cup raspberries

🔹1 cup strawberries

🔹1 while banana

🔹1 tbsp hulled hemp seeds

🔹1 tsp ground chia seeds

🔹1 tbsp peanut butter

🔹2 scoops Arbonne chocolate protein powder

  

My accompaniment with my breakfast this morning. I’m so happy to be back on protein shakes again. Chia and hemp are great sources of omega and will both keep you fuller for longer making you less likely to snack or get hungry an hour later. Adding greens to your shake will pack it full of vitamins and get you 1 serving closer to your daily intake of veggies. Berries are great for added antioxidants and to sweeten up the bitter taste of the spinach (you can also use kale).  Enjoy!

Recipe

2 cups organic 1% milk

2 scoops Arbonne chocolate protein power

1 cup strawberries

1 cup blueberries 

1.5 tsp chia seeds

2 tbsp hemp seeds

1 handful of spinach

1/2 cup crushed ice

1 tbsp peanut butter

What should I be eating post workout?

I’ve had many ladies ask me after bootcamp what they should be eating. If you’re completing a workout in the evening you want to stay away from having a full meal after your workout. Eating so close to bedtime doesn’t allow your body to break down the food and burn some of it off. That’s how weight gain can happen. If you’re thirsty try having some citrus infused water or herbal tea for those that want a warmer option. The citrus will actually ward off any cravings you have and make you feel full. If you’re hungry, have a small portion of yogurt with berries and granola or ½ a piece of fruit or a handful of almonds.
