Qwykie – Green Bee Smoothie

19 Apr

So this shake I made was pretty spectacular. Like the forth of July in my mouth.

I has just enough time to whip together a smoothie before my jettison into Theatre Space and this is what I threw together!

  • 1 medium frozen banana
  • 1 Cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey
  • 1 tbsp raw honey

This is serious bzzzzzzzness

Just add water to your desired consistancy ^_^

(I was going to add chia, but I forgot!)

This is the first time I made a spoonable smoothie and it was sooo thick and creamy and NOMS And it was supra filling. Definitely 1.5 meals. Great for long rehearsals :D!

My dress rehearsal could not have been more perfect. More on that later ^.~


Do you like to drink your smoothies, or eat ’em with a spoon?

POWER NOMS!

Winning-Board Update:

I’m finding it much more helpful than a “to-do list” for a day or week. Typically I would make a list (as per usual) of things I need to get accomplished and try to check them off. This has failed in the goals and achievements area. I don’t know why, but it is so. Perhaps I get overwhelmed? Pressure? Well this way I am writing, recording, and therefore venerating my accomplishments rather than seeing a list of uncompleted tasks. Much better! It feels like less of a burden. My goals are at the forefront of my mind, because I am thinking how I want to go home and write down my accomplishment 🙂 Yay! (I would just like to say BAM! Look at that clean eating! I was so proud of that, because snacks and food offers and traps are rampant in my workplace. I was so proud I turned it all down!! Muah-hahaha!)

Looking at all of POWERCAKE’s powercake recipes, this one looks amazing, and I decided to try it for my first powercake!

I give you the PB & J Chocolate Powercake (she has many substitutions, so check them out!)

  • 2 TB of Flax
  • 1/3 Cup Oats
  •  1/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 TB Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 1/4 cup of Almond Milk
  • 2 generous dashes of Xylitol (I am guessing 2-3 tsps)
  • Vanilla extract, cinnamon

Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes

nekkid!

Now for the PB! This one I just fumbled with until I got the right consistency…

  • 2 TB Peanut Butter
  • 2-3 Tsp Xylitol
  • 1 even scoop Cansein Protein Powder
  • 3/4 C water

The water I added gradually until I got the consistency I wanted. Don’t add it all at once! I whipped it up with a hand mixer!

Add Peanut Butter Casein Fluff

Now the Jam 🙂

  • 1 cup frozen berries (I used Trader Joe’s mixed berries)
  • 1/4 cup water

Microwave berries and water for 2 minutes

  • Add 2 TB CHia seeds & Xylitol to taste

Let it cool in fridge! Those berries be HOT!

MMM some of that awesome Chia Jam!

This was so unbelievably filling! I had half for breakfast and the rest throughout my rehearsal.

If you follow me on Instagram (loverly_kp) you might have seen some of the foodie pics already, but I am also taking pictures of rehearsals for may show! (At an all-day rehearsal, what else are you gonna do??)

Another all day rehearsal today! Oh man. I have come to terms that I won’t be able to stick to LiveFit’s meal plan right now. I will still be eating clean and healthy, but I don’t have the time to get groceries, and prepare it all right now. I have to do taxes!!

Did you see Blue Like Jazz this weekend?? I would highly recommend this movie if you are looking for something to do this Sunday ^^

Back in the gym, and a creamy snack

14 Mar

Oo lawdy, it had been a while since being in the gym 😦 Like, a week. Which is a long time. No wonder I’m getting crampy… Anyway! Today was legs, and all super-sets. Unfortunately, my gym isn’t really set up to accommodate that, but as ever I did the best I could. I admit, I cut it a bit short because of lack of energy and focus. My last post I mentioned how I got up at 4:20, but did not mention that I got to sleep around 11:30-12. Yeeah… I was very pleased when I was checking my form on single leg squats (kill me), and I saw some definition in my leg. What?! With my astronomical body fat percentage, I will be happy with any little line! Let’s make more, eh?

Enough jabber. On with the show (and tell!)

One day, I did a lot of cooking. (I don’t even remember what day o.O Sunday? I think it was Sunday… my life is a blur) I got all of these gorgeous groceries and made a bunch of yummy shiny things. Here are some of them!

Orange Roughy broiled with orange juice and slices, peas and cauliflower!

Multigrain oats with almond milk, vanilla whey, a dash of cinnamon...

step 2

+ very nearly empty Chocolate Soy Nut Butter jar...

voila! :)

= OMNOMNOMNOMNOM

There was just the very slightest breath of chocolate in my oats and it was heavenly

I <3 asparagus

Talapia (with some chili powder), asparagus, and lemons steamed in a foil pouch in the oven! Brown Jasmine rice with chia seeds on the side.

I work out at night, and because of my acid reflux I cant eat too close to bedtime, so I think casein protein is the best way to go post-workout. Since using it, I have definitely felt more sated and not like a RAVENOUS MONSTER in the morning. However, there is a downside. I hate it. That is, I hate the consistency. As a shake it is nigh unmixable. It just gets all gloopy and gloppy, and blech. I was choking it down. So! I have been trying to see what I can do with Casein protein, and thanks to Anna at ProteinPow.com (who also has a bunch of baking recipes for casein), I have found a quite viable option: Pudding!

still trying...

yeah, I know it looks awkward. This has sliced frozen bananas. The color is cookies and cream

Just take whatever amount of casein you want and mix in nearly boiling water to a pudding consistency. Then stick it in the fridge or freezer for a quick cool down. Now, I haven’t quite gotten a perfectly smooth consistency yet (not really sure how she does it. Hand mixer??) but it is leagues above the shakes in pleasure of consumption. I have been adding frozen fruit (like bananas), sometimes some sweetener and vanilla flavoring. My fave has been adding vanilla and finely shredded coconut! MM!

What is your fave healthy nighttime snack?
