My Pudding Creation

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…

IMG_1455I don’t think this picture does it justice.  You can play with the amount of almond milk and cottage cheese you use until perfected but I just had to share!

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!
