I can’t believe it has been almost a MONTH since my last post! With school starting up and all of the stress and craziness that goes with it, I have been absolutely slammed. So busy, even, that my eating has gotten off track. Life got in the way, I didn’t plan as well as I would’ve liked, and I fell back into some old habits. I have not fallen off of the workout train! But my eating has been less than stellar.

Because of that, I have recommitted to planning my meals and surrounding myself with healthy choices! If I have good food in the house and a plan for what we can eat each night, I’m not so tempted to run to the drive-thru. Today I did my food shopping for the week, and made enough food for dinner so we don’t even have to think about what to eat tomorrow – planned leftovers!

One new recipe that I tried this week was Shakeology Balls. They are also called No-Bake Shakeology Cookies, because they taste so much like no-bake cookies that most people are probably used to. These things are delicious! My 4-year old gobbled up as many as I would give him the first time I made them, and then begged me to make more after that batch was gone. The best part – he is getting a TON of nutrition when he eats his “treat.” SCORE!

Mint Chocolate Shakeology

Another of my current favorite recipes is Mint Chocolate Shakeology – otherwise known as a Thin Mint Cookie Shake! Seriously, if you love Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, this recipe is for you. It is my absolute favorite drink to make right now, and I can gulp it down faster than any other Shakeology recipe I’ve found.

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 cup cold water or unsweetened almond milk (plain or vanilla)
  • 3 to 4 drops peppermint extract (it doesn’t take much, trust me!!)
  • Ice to taste

I have also made this with coffee instead of milk, and with a banana for extra calories and to make it more filling. The mint just makes it great, no matter what.

I have some new workout videos that I plan to post soon, so keep looking out for those. I actually made a video today, but my camera girl was a little off her game with the iPhone. 😉 Didn’t turn out so great, so we need to have a re-do.  Until then, keep living healthy!
