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 ^^

Victory over the pizza

21 Feb

Morning came too soon… Down that 5 hour energy! Get on it!

I am very proud of myself for seeing that pizza this morning and having none of it. It called to me several times, and where I would usually have a few sliced AS WELL AS a full breakfast, I just thought about how yummy and filling, and full of good fuel my breakfast was going to be.

It was a leg day today! Just note: as of now, single leg squats are definitely not my favorite thing. Loooots of barbell work, which is strenuous on my neck and arms, but I got it done! My glutes are feeling… fail-y.

Post workout, I celebrated Fat Tuesday with a pancake thing of awesome

Taken from Alexandra, it was pretty darn good! I added a little almond extract, and almond butter on top. Oh baby.

I havent been getting enough sleep, so I need go do that, but first put away my laundry. I definitely poured it all over my bed so I would be forced to put it away before I could crawl inside. I hate me sometimes.
