I preordered this box in August, when they announced this new box. The idea behind it is to give readers things to do off of their phone; make reading more of an experience. I really love this idea, and was therefore incredibly excited about a box with items to help me relax while I read. So, let’s jump right in!
‘ve been thinking about smoothies a lot, lately. I usually allow myself one bolthouse smoothie a week, but those bad boys are expensive and many are from concentrate (which means I’m getting more water than I’d like from them). So I looked up some healthy smoothies (aka I listened to YouTube tutorials on smoothies for an entire work day), and decided to make my own recipe. I was originally going to call them Lion Lickers because my hope was that they would be pink, but they are brown, so it doesn’t work.
I made this drink the other day, and popped it in the freezer to be a tasty post work out treat. It’s full of berries and protein powder, so it’s sweet but also healthy! Let’s get right into it.
Alright Fangirls, a couple weeks ago I said that I was going to try a silly fad diet to save money on food while on vacation this week. I decided I would only drink Bolthouse smoothies and eat protein bars (one smoothie and one serving of protein bar daily, along with one regular meal) for a couple days, and see if it made any difference in my weight.
Fangirls, I’ve been trying to get a bit healthier recently, and one of the things I’ve been worrying about is what to eat after working out. I tend to crave sweet things, and that feels a bit counter productive; I can’t be just another cherry chasing dot muncher. I’ve noticed that waiting until at least after I’ve showered helps my sweet tooth slow down a bit, but I still want something sweet.
