After my shopping trip yesterday I was a little too excited to start making new things with all my delicious ingredients. First on the list- A chocolate peppermint protein shake. It ended up tasting like a Thin Mint cookie- my favorite Girl Scout Cookie! In drinkable form- it went down so smoothly. So I renamed it and called it the Thin Mint Protein Shake.
2 handfuls of spinach
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (only this amount-its really strong!)
2 cups vanilla almond milk
blend all together.
Don’t judge a shake by its color- this was a nasty green color but a lot of flavor!
Before making my protein shake, I hit the gym early to get in an intense workout.
I spent 30 minutes on the treadmill doing interval runs to complete 3 miles. Then I decided it was an arm day and created this circuit.
I repeated it twice, using 10 lb dumbbells. I felt the burn.
After showering for the day and drinking my Thin Mint Protein Shake, I spent the morning studying for an exam. To relieve me from the books, my friend Stephanie came to visit for an hour so we could catch up and chat. I used this opportunity to snack on my new coconut milk yogurt and some Gluten-Free Chex Cereal I picked up!
This is Stephanie 🙂
And this is my delicious snack!

I’m off to work!
