You know I never let anything go to waste. I had blanched a pear in some lemon juice and frozen it a while back. I woke up really wanting to use this pear in a shake this morning. I had seen a couple shake recipes using pears so I played of of those to make this mornings shake:
1/4 to 1/2 frozen banana slices
2 -3 tsp cashew butter
1 scoop Herbalife Vanilla Formula 1
1/2 pkt Fruitein Rainbow Shake mix*
1 cup Bai5 Brasilia Blueberry
handful of kale
1/4 tsp xanthum
I wanted something filling, with some natural sugars to keep me powered through this study day. This shake is like an antioxidant heaven!
Studying ensued for the rest of the day. I realized I needed my first study break after a period of delirium when I began baby talking to Beauty… a quick little circuit should do the trick.
Back to studying until hunger kicked in… As I grabbed some Wasa, nutella, and Planters Berry PB, mom went and got Arby’s for dinner (Yay, coupons!). French dip with a bit of horsey sauce! Yum!
I also had an Orange Cranberry Gnu bar, which did a great job holding me over for a while! (look for the Gnu review, coming soon!)
Studying for the rest of the night! Wish me luck tomorrow!
* I found Fruitein at the co-op and wanted to give it a try. The Rainbow flavor caught my eye as a power house of health! It has over 115 Whole Food Concentrates. I mean, the ingredients list blows my mind: white fig, carrot, pomegranate, yellow pepper, pineapple, garlic, spirulina… and things I’ve never heard of: noni? mangosteen? wolfberry? The shake is vegetarian and gluten free.
