Sorry I dangled such a delicious thing in front of your eyes without a recipe right away!
I made these last night when I did my meal prep for the week and then I ran all morning so I didn't get to eat one until the afternoon and verdict is....DELICIOUS!
On to the important part... how to make it!
I have the best of intentions. I start a program all gung ho, ready to follow every word and crush it. I'm sure the same is true for you. I plan all my meals. I schedule my workouts into my day and for the first week I probably follow it.
Enter weekend. The time when there are 1000x more social events and temptations and opportunities to skip your workout due to a different schedule.
You have two choices: do what you said you were going to do or don't.
When I first heard about Shakeology I was extremely skeptical and hesitant to try it. I was already very much into eating clean. Eating non-GMO and organic and eating less processed foods were very important to me. Plus I was NEVER a shake person! I am a researcher...
I immediately went to work Googling Shakeology, reading ingredient labels and reviews and blog posts galore. Even since starting to drink it I still listen to podcasts and read any new info that comes out because I still care immensely what is in what I eat!
I actually said that ^ to my husband when we were at the grocery story last night. Ha! He didn't find it funny. I did! .... so now it's the title of a blog post.
One of the top excuses I hear for not eating organic foods or healthy food in general is "It's too expensive." I get it. I completely get it.
Let me tell you a little story...
Last summer (I think...maybe it was 2 summers ago already!) I posted a recipe for a chicken orzo salad that I LOVE. Since then I have decided to go meatless, plant-based, vegetarian, whatever you'd like to call it (which I still haven't really posted about here...) so I am working on adapting all of my normal meals to be meatless. This one came out bomb.
Here is my slightly altered recipe to make the vegetarian version of my orzo salad
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
