Well now like every other food blogger on earth ever I can say I’ve made a green monster! Here’s the thing: I don’t have protein powder. Cause it’s way expensive, and I prefer to get my protein the natural way (which today, er, entailed inhaling massive quantities of trail mix. Thank GOD I have a job interview on Tuesday- I have to get out of my house!)
Buttttt I saw in a blog (apologies, because I commented to said blogger about it and was grateful for the idea but now I can’t remember who did it!) that you could use Greek yogurt for your protein, and courtesy of a quality giveaway I now have tons of Chobs! So I made one, SIAB (smoothie in a bowl), Kath-style.
1 cup frozen spinach
1 blueberry Chobani (as usual with the Chobs, I tossed out most of the fruit goo at the bottom of the container)
1 tsp flax
water (probably slightly too much)
To round out the meal for grains and healthy fat, mini toasts with avocado on top (like buttah, but bettah!)
Ultimately, this meal left me… COLD. SO SO SO SO COLD! The green monster tasted… okay. But all I could think about was how to get my body temperature up, because I think it dropped like five degrees. I want to try it again (with a bit less spinachyness and a bit more… everything else) but, like, in August.
Rewinding to brekkers, I tried a new (to me) cereal (it was on sale for two dollah!)
I am a big shredded wheat fan, and though I didn’t think it needed embellishing, unlike most cloyingly sweet vanilla-fied food items, this one just mostly tasted like vanilla. You see little flecks (real beans! Vair impressive!) on the lil biscuits, and when you pour the milk over it, it turns into vanilla milk! All in all, a keeper.
With naner :D
