Hello lovely followers! I feel like I haven’t been on Tumblr for awhile now, but I guess life can do that to you. But I’m back for a reason, and here it is:
Banana Berry Tofu Protein Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup silken firm tofu (this is what MAKES this smoothie recipe creamy and protein packed)
1 banana (preferably ripe)!
1 cup frozen berries (important that the berries are frozen so that the smoothie will be nice and cold)
1-2 large handfuls of spinach
a little under 1 cup almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)
Add everything into a blender (I used my Magic Bullet) and blend, blend, blend!
Ohmygosh guys this smoothie is freaking delicious, I PROMISE YOU. No additional sweetener needed, as the sweetness from the banana is enough. Also vegan and can be changed up pretty easily. It’s got your protein, vegetables, fruit, calcium- WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE. Plus, it’s perfect after a nice long run or gym session, which is where I just came from :) I promise I’ll update this blog more often, because I’ve found lots of great, healthy recipes that I’ve tried out just for all ya’ll!
I found this gem of a quote on Pinterest, and it really resounds with me. Yesterday, I ate a lot. In fact, way more than I needed to. Let’s just say lunch turned into a rampage of meals rather than a solitary, square one. But that is the past and there is nothing I can do about it. Today started out well and normal- hardboiled egg whites and sirrachia, nonfat greek yogurt with a banana and mixed frozen berries, and a small cup of coffee with 2% milk and Splenda. My mom (out of the goodness of her little heart) packed me a healthy cucumber, tomato, avocado, turkey, and sirrachia salad with some leftover vegetables (probably with some sort of meat/tofu cooked in) on the side for lunch. She also packed me a sweet potato and steamed kabocha squash. Hopefully this will tide me over until dinner so that no excessive snacking will take place. Then for dinner I plan on a balanced meal of veggies, protein, and a small portion of complex carbs. Here’s to one step closer to a healthier body and mindset.
