Mornings start pretty early around here – both girls are usually up by 6:00. And if I want to get a workout in before the day starts, I’m up earlier. And if Evie is teething, well, you get the picture ;)
Starting my day with a good breakfast (especially after mornings at the gym), is super important. When I’m not properly fueled, I feel like I’m one step behind the girls all day – bad news for a stay-at-home mama!
In January I **finally** broke down and bought a Blendtec blender, and I honestly don’t know why I waited so long. Actually, yes I do – they are EXPENSIVE! But, after using it for the past 3 months, I can tell you that it’s totally, 100% worth it!
Our family has had so much fun experimenting with different smoothie combinations and seeing how much spinach and kale we can sneak into the mix before Eleanor notices ;)
When Manitoba Harvest sent me a sampler pack of their new hemp protein smoothie, we were excited to try more smoothie creations! We already love throwing in their hemp hearts, so our expectations were high.
This new smoothie line contains HempPro 70 protein powder and an organic harvest greens blend. Each serving has 15 grams of plant-based protein, making it a super convenient way to get both my greens and protein all at once.
We tried lots of different combinations with the 3 flavors: mixed berry, vanilla chai and chocolate (yum!)
One of my favorite morning drinks uses the chocolate flavor in a Choco Covered Raspberry Smoothie. Yes, it sounds (and tastes) like dessert ;)
