For most of my running career, I ran good, but eat bad. Not sure I would call myself a junk food junkie, but…pizza you bet, hamburgers oh yea, top it all with fried potatoes I’m game. Over the past two years I’ve really changed my approach to the food I eat. I’m proud to tell you this new outlook has allowed me to drop approx 20 pounds.
How did I do that? No easy fast fix or quick acting pills. I’ve simply found other food items to eat. I have cut back on eating out and I no longer eat to get stuffed. AND…Michele has introduced me to the wonderful world of smoothies.
Since purchasing a Ninja and tasting a few of her creations, I’m hooked. To help my diet I no longer have fast food or left overs for lunch. I pack a smoothie, a yogurt, apple sauce cup and swap out my diet dew for water and the pounds have come off. Best news is I feel satisfied, they taste great and I truly feel healthier!
This creation I spun up this weekend, I call it “Ultra Runners Berry Blast.”
2 cups of kale
2 cups of berry mixture (raspberry, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries)
2 cups vanilla yogurt
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop protein
Makes approx. 4 12 oz servings.
Freeze overnight…and enjoy.
