I'm a late afternoon exerciser and I always snack a couple of hours before getting busy. My normal snackage usually involves one of these items:
Today I needed to mix it up, and wanted to somehow incorporate veggies, fruit, and protein in a sweetish snack that would be quick to eat at work. (Of course, a smoothie would be the perfect answer, but I don't feel like lugging Viv to school everyday, and smoothies don't taste as good several hours after blending.) Here is my attempt at making a healthy, tasty, energy-sustaining snack, using two interesting companions.
|I know, zukes are fruit, not veggies, buy whatevs.|
Blueberry Zucchini Pudding
2 largeish zucchinis, peeled and chopped
1 pint blueberries
2 scoops protein powder (I used natural raw Sun Warrior)
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp coconut nectar (or sweetener of choice)
1/4 cup coconut water
1/4 cup irish moss gel
2 tbsp sunflower lecithin
Blend all ingredients and then place in fridge to firm up.
Okay, so this is really just a stiff smoothie, but I'm pretending it's more interesting than that.
The clouds are doing weird things out our window right now. Hope it's not snow. (Sunset at 10 pm!!)
Question: What time of day do you exercise? Do you eat before hand?
