Presenting, a thick protein smoothie:
|In goes avocado, a banana, cocoa powder, protein powder, kale, and frozen blackberries!|
The result was thick, as predicted, and not as sweet as my other smoothies. If I were going to make this again, I would probably add more blackberries, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.
Here's what I used to make 3 cups (split into 2 servings):
1 T cocoa powder
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 c. water
1 c. frozen blackberries
1 handful of kale (about 1c)
1 tsp. flax seeds
Mixing all these ingredients is incredibly fun for me. I love combining whatever I have into something nutrient packed!
I also have been making dinner more recently, in case no one could tell. Continuing my low-carb obsession (and fear of pasta and bread), I made some zucchini noodles, and lemon herb baked chicken breast.
4 zucchinis shaved and microwaved until tender, tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper made for a delicious non pasta-pasta.
The chicken recipe was pretty easy, too. I just followed this recipe after looking for searching for some ideas. I absolutely loved the result :)
In between my cooking and working out (WOTD: a couple of back toning videos, and a 4ish mile run), I finally redid my nails. I loovvve me some glitter, although I rarely do it!

I swear, my life has become nothing except working out, cooking, and doing my homework. I'll start doing something exciting eventually!
