No new strength/bootcamp workouts this week or next. It’s almost race time and I have stopped cross-training for the moment in order to be able to focus all of my training efforts on running. Workouts will be back shortly though. Until then, more food!!
This smoothie is one of the best I have ever made! I loved it so much I kind of want it for dinner tonight too. One of my favorite desserts to indulge in before I transitioned to a vegan diet was the Key Lime Pie Cheesecake at the Cheesecake factory. Though it was ridiculously rich, the tartness of the lime gave the dessert a bright and light feel. The same goes with this smoothie. I wanted it to be thick and rich, while also being a light breakfast smoothie. In all, the smoothie has around 350 calories and is packed with nutritious foods and flavor.
