Stormy Texas

Hello bloggies! :)

How are we today? I am now well rested after a very busy travel day yesterday. It always amazes me how beat traveling can make you feel. Anyone out there agree with me? My mom and I spent nearly 8 hours flying and connecting in airports. We sat A LOT. Last night at 8pm we were done, tired, beat, ready for bed.

Last night was also full of violent, Texas thunderstorms. Gosh I miss those storms. Boston doesn't really bring the thunder and lightning that mother nature brings to Texas. It was gorgeous and scary all at the same time. It had been so long since I had experienced one of those storms.

I started my morning with THIS…

Behold the love of my life: smoothies. I don't think I have gone more than a day without a smoothie in over 5 months now. They just feel so good in my body! I can't help it! This one was made without my classic spinach (hence the chocolate color) but the Chocolate Shakeology that I add is packed full of veggies, fruits and nutrients. I don't think my digestive system has ever worked this well.

My newest favorite in smoothies is PB2. Have you checked out this lovely product by Bell Plantation? It's actually pretty spectacular, especially if you could eat peanut butter 5 times a day like me. Bell Plantation takes our beloved peanuts, presses them so that the oil is removed. What is left is a fine powder. There are chemicals, no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. The only addition to this product is a bit of sugar. The nutritional profile is terrific so take a look!

I typically add 1-2 tbsp to my chocolate or fruit smoothies, especially if I'm looking for a bit more protein. There is only 5g per serving but enough to give me what I'm looking for. This is an INCREDIBLE post workout smoothie:

PB2 Chocolate Goodness

Sometimes you will see me throw in an assortment of fruit (banana, strawberries, mango, cherries), spinach, bee pollen, flax seed, coconut, raw oats, cinnamon…anything that strikes my fancy that morning!

    I can back you up on this one! I almost feel like Shakeology is flowing through my veins after I drink it, like energy! I have to try that PB2, although I've been hooked on Better n Peanut Butter, but I think powdered would work better! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Everywhere I look, someone is talking about PB2… I gotta get my hands on some!

    Jenny- it is fantastic! I definitely wouldn't say it will replace peanut butter or any of my other fav nut butters. But it's a terrific option for making smoothies, peanut sauces or if you want the peanut flavor. :)

    Hey Bonnie! I love hearing from other Shakeology lovers!!!! How long have you been using it?

    I haven't tried Better n Peanut Butter yet but I keep seeing it in the store. That's a must!
