It’s official — putting veggies in a smoothie adds another dimension of taste.  I’ve tried spinach, which was fabulous, and this  morning, I added 1/2 a sweet potato.

Breakfast- Peaches and Potato Smoothie

 

Packed with fiber AND protein, this smoothie is sure to keep my tummy feeling satisfied all morning long.

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1/2 baked sweet potato, cold and without skin (I had a leftover potato for the other day)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peach halves
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup NF plain yogurt
  • 1 scoop ImmunPlex Protein Powder (9 grams of protein, 35 calories)

Failure to Launch

 

So, today’s morning run just didn’t happen.  If I run in the morning, I have to leave really early, which wakes up my two dogs.  They go positively nuts whenever I leave their presence (kind of sad), which wakes up Future Husband.  Since he has to work a 13-hour shift at clinical and school today, I figured I should just let everyone sleep in. šŸ™‚

 

It’s a little early to really start to taper (typically, you taper for 3 – 4 days before a 15K or a half marathon), but my knees have felt a little wonky lately and taking two rest days this week (as opposed to just one) is probably going to do me more good than harm!

 

I will definitely miss my run today, though. šŸ™ I crave exercise! It’s just the highlight of my day.  That 1-hour run gives me time to relax, think things through, and just focus on a single physical task instead of running around like a crazy lady (like at work).  Oh well, there’s always tomorrow’s run! šŸ™‚

 

Have a great day!
