Compared to water, milk, or other sports drinks, chocolate milk has double the carbohydrate and protein content, which is essential for replenishing tired muscles. Plus Silk packs in more calcium than milk – an added bonus. I enjoy a half cup after a sweaty gym sesh… and it tastes so good, it’s the perfect payoff for working hard!
I’ve been obsessed with peanut butter for so long, that I was a little hesitant to try almond butter. I simply didn’t think anything could beat it. But when I tasted this… I saw stars. Almond butter tastes just like you think it would (like almonds!) but with a creamy, rich, wonderful texture.
Nutritionally, it has the same amount of calories as peanut butter. But it also has less saturated fat (the bad kind) and more unsaturated fats (the good kind!), annnnd has more calcium and fiber than the peanut-ty stuff. I eat mine with apples slices, bananas, or layered on crackers. Mmmm so good!
Lastly, I’m taking a hint from nature.
I recently wrote an article about how kiwi is a superfood (check it out here), and ever since I’ve been hooked on them! They’re one of nature’s most powerful fruits, with more vitamin C than an orange and more potassium than a banana, plus tons of antioxidants and vitamins.
Recently, my breakfasts have looked a little like this:
So easy and SO GOOD!
One Oikos Greek Vanilla yogurt, 1 kiwi, 1/2 teaspoon honey
