Perseverance.  Focus.  Endurance.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, (2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.)
        Hebrews 12:1-2
Drink to your health

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted anything, sorry 'bout that. In an attempt to redeem myself, I figured I might as well treat y'all. To what? You ask. Well the most amazing smoothie recipes of all time, of course! Okay, maybe they aren't "Oh my goodness I've died and gone to heaven" good, but they're close. You see, as a runner, smoothies are my best friend. I usually have 'em post workout to refuel after a long run. But these babies aren't just for running, they're great for breakfast or a meal replacement when on the road or when you're simply too busy for a sit-down breakky. Talk is cheap though, so I'll let you try these amazing blender-fuls of goodness for yourself: (p.s. my personal favorite is the Banana Spice Smoothie)



Chocolate-Banana Smoothie

2 bananas (can be frozen)

1/4 cup oatmeal

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1-2 tablespoons natural peanut butter

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed

1 cup milk of choice (can add more or less)


Wild Berry Smoothie

1-2 cups frozen mixed berries

1 banana

1 kiwi

1-2 cups spinach leaves

1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt

1 cup milk or juice (give or take)

Banana Spice Smoothie

2 bananas (preferably frozen)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

(or 1/4-1/2 cup vanilla yogurt/kefir)

1 cup milk of choice (give or take)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon chai spice


I encourage y'all to try these smoothies, 'cause they're really good...no joke. Did I mention that they're all bursting with nutrients and fiber and omega-3s? Well, they are. You can use soymilk, coconut milk, rice milk, cow's milk, or almond milk, I prefer soy & almond milk; they have the most mild flavors but are still slightly sweet. Don't be wary about adding the oatmeal and flaxseed! Oatmeal provides a great source of fiber and adds substance to the smoothie, filling you up without filling you out. I LOVE flaxseed because honestly, it can go anywhere. It doesn't alter the taste in any way (in my opinion) and is just a really great source of lignans, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. Is flaxseed the new wonderfood? Yes. Most definitely. Although it really isn't new...it's just, not common. Sad. Enjoy these recipes and tell me what you think! Oh by the way, you might need a blender..:)




Happy Trails!
