Today was a pretty good day. I slept in just a little this morning because I wanted to enjoy my first day of spring break. When I got up, I made a new breakfast – a chocolate peanut butter green monster. I got the idea from this blog post by Tasha at The Clean Eating Mama. I altered it just a little, but it came out great. The next time I make it, I’ll have to remember to take a picture.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Monster
- Skim milk
- Ghirardelli cocoa powder
- Skippy natural creamy peanut butter
- Honey (from our crop share)
- Spinach (from our crop share)
- Green Superfood powder (I was so excited to find this at our local co-op)
Everything was just to taste, so I’m not totally sure how much I put in there. I think next time I’ll decrease the amount of peanut butter. I feel like there was a LOT. And I’ll increase the honey. That should balance out alright. Just play with it a little. I don’t know if you could actually call it a green monster since the chocolate really made it brown, but there’s spinach in there, so it counts.
This thing was GREAT! I stayed full all day! Definitely a great breakfast option. I will be making this again for sure.
For my workout today I had to switch it up a little. I forgot that today was the first day of spring rugby, so instead of running, I went to practice. Lots of running there anyway! I was feeling it out since I’m not sure if I’ll be playing anymore, and I still have really mixed feelings. I’ll sleep on it.
Now I’m off to play with the dogs!
