Some Vita-mix ActionPosted: April 26, 2011
My vita-mix got a pretty decent break over the long weekend and it was about time I break it out again for some VMA (vita-mix action). I really think this is the most used gadget in my kitchen, but I’m not surprised why. It can pretty much make anything. This morning I just wanted something cold and simple so I ended up using:
- 1 large frozen banana
- 1 cup low-fat unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2.5 pieces ice
- 1 rounded tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- a couple dashes vietnamese cinnamon and a couple more on the finished product
It was simple and delicious. But it would be even more delicious had I shaved some dark chocolate over it and mixed it in. But alas, I was running low on time and had to get myself over to they gym pronto.
I had a decent workout that started with 18 mins on the treadmill looking something like this:
Then I was off to my tuesday ‘flexible strength’ class where we incorporate 3 lb dumbbells, one 5 lb dumbbell, and a 9 lb body bar into some functional movements. Today we worked mostly shoulders and arms and did a lot of squats. I rounded out my workout with 9 mins of intervals on the stair master.
I hoping to get into major ‘study mode’ later this afternoon so I can whip through some papers and feel like I’m actually accomplishing something. Maybe I’ll reward myself afterwards with last nights new episode of Gossip Girl. Who am I kidding? I know I’ll watch it whether or not I get through my papers…
Oh, and does anyone out there watch Hawaii 5-O? New favorite show! Its so good, and makes the island look so amazing. Not that it already isn’t, but it truly makes it look magnificently beautiful.
Have a great and productive afternoon!
