Healthy Wednesday: Skinny Mixed Berry Smoothie
I started to name this smoothie the P-Mac Attack, but decided that would have no SEO advantage nor would it describe anything about the drink. Therefore, I went with Mixed Berry Smoothie.
Why did I want to name it the Mac Attack? Because I created it as a post-run energy drink. After I run I feel invincible like I can attack and conquer the world…after a nap of course!
I have teamed up with some other blogging buddies for a Weightloss or Healthy Wednesday series. I’m not really looking to lose weight so I prefer Healthy Wednesday because we all can be a little more healthy! I’ll share running and exercise tips and my running stats each Wednesday along with a ‘Skinny’ recipe for you to try. This week I’ll share Healthy Wednesday: Skinny Mixed Berry Smoothie!
Here are my running stats through the end of August this year
Total miles: 734.57
Duration: 288: 20:43
Total calories burned: 99,564
Longest run March 17: 13.2
My stats for August 1, 2013 – August 31, 2013
Total workouts – 29
Total distance (miles) – 109.8
Calories burned – 9,603
Goals for remainder of 2013 =
- Mileage – 100 per month
- Increase distance again to possibly run another half marathon. I say possibly because it may conflict with a day we have to be out-of-town. I’ll train toward that goal though.
- Eat better – more nutrient-packed meals and snacks
- Increase strength
I created this Skinny Mixed Berry Smoothie to help me with #3!
After a recent run, I started to think about a post-workout drink that would be nutritious and low in calories. Most of the smoothie recipes I’ve seen have a banana in them. I no likey bananas, well, I like bananas; I just don’t like bananas cooked or in anything. My sweet Mom used to make me a very special Banana Pudding that didn’t have bananas in it!! 🙂 Mother’s are wonderful! Anywho, I came up with this convenient nutritious smoothie that will be great as a snack or after work out recovery drink.
The great thing about this smoothie. You mix it up, freeze it in individual portions, then all you have to do after a run or workout is pop the frozen portion in a blender and mix with milk. It’s healthy and much cheaper than buying the packages of the smoothie mix.
