Today has been colder than I’m used to. I ran 5 miles plus some interval sprints at the end of it. No matter how hard I was working through it; if I stopped moving, I began to shiver!! The wind was ridiculous!!
So why do you care how cold I was today, right? (well, really, why are you even reading about it then? haha) In any case, my nutrition is so important for my training these days and I adhere to my daily intake of Shakeology…
But sometimes the cold shakes just make me…colder!!
So, today I decided to make up my own concoction. Honestly, I’m not a natural at creating recipes. I’m pretty good at following another recipe; but you just never know what you’ll get if I’m creating the recipe…
I decided that pudding sounded yummy and here is what I did:
I put 1/3 cup (give or take…kinda guess-timated here) of lowfat cottage cheese (sidenote: do yourself a favor and don’t ever use the nonfat version of cottage cheese; they are just full of preservatives and taste yucky and aren’t any better for you anyway!) into a blender. I added my 1 scoop of chocolate Shakeology (but I’m sure you could play around with the other flavors), 1 Tbsp peanut butter (cuz everything is better with peanut butter, right?), 2 packets of Stevia sweetener, 1/2 banana and just enough almond milk to make a creamy (but not runny) consistency.
I whipped it all up and oh my goodness…
I actually created a recipe that is amazing!! And the best news was that when I was done eating it; I wasn’t even COLD!!! 😉
Tomorrow I will be posting a bit about your resolutions and how to make the most of this year; realistically.
Yeah, I did good today!
