Goooooddd Morning!! Having days off I either feel completely unproductive and windup watching six hours of Millionaire Matchmaker or actually get stuff done. Yesterday, luckily, was one of those days.
The husband has been working a TON and so I am usually left to hang with a Ch’en and Jazz. It was gorgeous out so that always helps. Ch’en and I played with taking some photos, marked on a lot of trees, and drank our spinach and blueberry smoothie.
After a failed attempt to get myself back over to the Human Society, I decided I would just make zucchini muffins for the girls at work for Saturday.
About a month ago I was out walking fur babies at the shelter and it was a 100 degree day and I just got way too over heated. I thought I would be able to drive myself home, but a cross between the heat and a panic attack, I just ended up pulling over and the fire department took me to the hospital. NOT how I wanted to spend my day off. After learning about hypokalemia (metabolic disorder that occurs when the level of potassium in the blood drops too low) dehydration, panic disorders, and anemia, I decided that I needed to step up my game in the healthier eating. I feel like I eat pretty healthy, but I knew I could do better, hence all the smoothie madness!
For a good morning smoothie:
- 1/2 c. frozen blueberries
- 1/2 c. frozen mango
- 1 banana
- 1 c. raw spinach
- 1 c. unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds (gotta get in that fiber!)
Blend and enjoy!
