Smoothies in winter?

Even though I woke up to 12 degrees outside this morning, I made a smoothie for breakfast!


This smoothie contained 1 cup of rice milk, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple and 1 tbsp Sun Warrior protein powder. Unfortunately it was not very good but it’s all about figuring out the right combo.

The mini bagel with White Chocolate Wonderful was just lovely 🙂

Mid-morning, I snacked on some carrots and salsa. Can you tell I’m trying to use stuff up at home?


I didn’t take photos of lunch again because like yesterday, it’s just boring and today’s lunch was a carbon copy of last night’s dinner.

Before our run today, I snacked on a Larabar that happened to be the same color as the shirt I was wearing today 😉


After our run and on the way to a meeting, I knew it would be a while before I ate again so I tried these Luna snacks from my pantry.


These were not that good! I really like the pomegranate flavor but I just ate these for the calories. I will not get this flavor again.

After our half marathon training meeting, I came home to a new frozen pizza to try. No cheese!


It seemed a little skimpy on the veggies at first.


But looking at these pictures makes it seem like there was more on there than I initially noticed.


While I waited for the pizza to cool off, I started on a nice glass of iced tea. Summer, are you here yet?


For dinner, I had two slices of pizza with some broccoli and Smart Balance Light.

This meal hit the spot! I loved the crunchy crust of the pizza (I cooked mine an additional 2 minutes than the box said to do).


Take a good look…this is tomorrow’s lunch, ha ha ha.

It’s almost bedtime over here so I’d better sign off. Hope you had a great day, GOOD NIGHT 🙂

  1. Major props to you for just waking up in that cold! 🙂

    I like your purple shirt!

  2. I wanted to make a green monster smoothie this morning but I wussed out and made hot tea. It’s just so cold. Bravo though to you for going for it!

  3. I ❤ Kashi cheeseless pizzas!!!!!!!!

    I think that brown rice protein powder SUCKS. I can't figure out how to make any of my smoothie/drinks taste good. All my drinnks taste amazing and then I add the powder and I can taste the powdery earthness of it. yuck. maybe i just dont like protein powders?? thankfully my friend is going to take it off my hands 🙂

  4. I am with you, I love the idea of protein powders but NOT the taste! I bought some Spirutein powder that I have yet to try. The notes on the package say to blend it in a blender vs. mixing by hand, which makes me think the texture will most definitely be unpleasant.

    That pizza looks so good! I’m gonna have to try it out

  6. I have been wanting to try that Sicilian pizza, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Looks delicious! I can’t imagine what 12 degrees feels like, I’m here complaining about the 30’s. 🙂

  7. I heart the Sicilian Veggie pizza! For extra veggies, I add spinach, mushrooms, and black olives. It super yum!
