A Big Bite of Summer

Wow, today was a really great day! I’m so glad I’m out of the funk I was in last week. I am ENERGIZED and feeling awesome.

This morning I was up at 7 and had to use up some of that kale I bought at the farmers’ market. What better way than to use it in a smoothie for breakfast!

smoothieWhat’s that you say? The color offends you? Good thing I didn’t make it for YOU. In the mix was a banana, some almond butter, kale, almond milk, hemp protein powder and flax seed. Yum!

On the side was some toast with peach-apricot jam from the farmers’ market:

Today I did weights and then a run, which wasn’t planned but I just couldn’t let the beautiful weather pass me by.

Dinner tonight was really delicious! And basically hand-delivered from summer herself. YES. It was amazing.
