Cinnamon Swirl and Cacao Microwave Protein Mug Cake

I get bored with things very quickly and constantly need change and fun.  That’s just my life in general but it’s also about my protein.  Let’s face it… There are so many types of powdered and liquid proteins out there that taste like grass or crud.  I finally found one I like and totally overwhelmed myself.  Now I’m sick of it but don’t want the money and time I invested in finding it to go to waste.  I decided to be creative.  I also saw a photo of a deadly sweet brownie mug cake that gave me the idea.

Whole Foods & Protein Smoothie

Today I had a long workout at the gym.  I pushed myself a little too far working out back and legs.  Now I’m a hungry beast!!! I decided to go to Whole Foods for some grub.  To save money and get a quick eat, I decided to order a pizza. This is pretty rare for me but you can get a good deal on a pizza at Whole Foods.

I ordered a large whole grain pizza with roasted red peppers, spinach, pepperoni and riccota.  The total cost was $14.99!  The pizza was going to take about 20 minutes to bake so I decided to try a new smoothie from their smoothie bar.

My new friend Ashley B helped us decide on an awesome post-workout smoothie.  It has coconut water, whey protein, bananas, strawberry, flaxseed, bluebonnet extreme edge post workout, and vanilla Greek yogurt.  Ashley suggested we try the smoothie with the chocolate whey protein and said it was very good.  She was right!! While we waited, Ashley let us try out her “secret” smoothie called the Blue Moon. It was so delicious!!! I’m ordering it the next time I visit Whole Foods! The Blue Moon has blueberries, bananas, 1/2 a cup of coconut water and unsweetened almond milk and a scoop if coconut oil.  She even gave me a tip on how much liquid to put in a smoothie.  Basically, if your want to make a 16oz smoothie, fill it up half way with the liquids, pour that in the blender and add the other ingredients.    Voilà, you have an awesome smoothie!

Thanks so much Ashley B!!!  I hope to see you the next time we visit Whole Foods!

Cheers!
