Plus it tastes SO good!
In a perfect world, I would be able to blend a smoothie whenever my heart desires. But, alas, I can't. Darn this imperfect world!
As triathlon training is in full swing (minus the running, but it's coming along), I have found myself swimming EVERY morning of the week. This means I leave the house between 5am and 5:30am, depending on a pre-swim lift or run season. From the gym it's straight to work. I've blended my smoothie just before I leave in the morning and packed it for breakfast, but that's a lot of noise at 5am and my hubby (not to mention the soon to be down stairs neighbor) would rather not hear our blender tear through frozen strawberries quite that early. I've also tried blending my smoothie the night, but it changes from so-delicious-I-want-to-bath-in-it to almost hard to drink.
What to do.
Well, luckily Vega One can be carried along in a mason jar, ready for some cool, filtered water to be added. I tried just Vega One for breakfast, but the high protein, low carbohydrate nature of it makes my stomach cramp when I drink it solo so close to post workout. And then it dawned on me, why not bring the "parts" of my smoothie to work and enjoy them unblended... wow, now you're thinking, Ericka.
|This mornings "Un-Smoothie" French Vanilla Vega One, melon, strawberries, and grapes. Yum!|
What's your go to, take along breakfast?
Until the next tale,
