I don’t make New Years resolutions, because I feel like if I want to change my life, I should just get up, and do so. I have no idea though, when that became so hard, or when I became so old. Chip never wakes up and then groggily says, “Please, mom, just 5 more minutes.” But I literally am peeling myself off my sheets in the morning to get up.
And I honestly wish that it was different. That I was a morning person. But the truth is, is that I’m not a morning person or a night person really. So I’ve implemented a few things to give myself more energy.
Such as, eating dinner earlier.
Such as, more protein.
Such as, a smoothie every day.
Ugh I’m tired of typing “such as.” Isn’t there a video of a beauty queen saying “such as” too much?
And of course, a little surprises in my day gives me more energy. Yes, this smoothie has oats! Not cooked. Just blended!
What do you do for more energy?
Dairy Free Weekend Smoothie
Yield: 2 smoothies
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
2 heaping scoops of some sort of peanut buttery type food. I used sunflower butter.
1 cup rice milk (or other milk if you prefer)
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
honey to taste (optional)
Pour all ingredients except honey into blender, and blend for 1-2 minutes to ensure that the oats get blended real well. Add honey if you deserve for smoothie to be sweeter and blend again. Enjoy!
