Slim PB Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Smoothie plus Yoga For Weightlifters

Today’s smoothie once again features the Slim Powdered Peanut Butter Mrs. Smoothie Operator found for me on Vitacost.  I pretty much put this sh!+ on everything.  The powdered peanut butter takes one of my favorite oatmeal smoothies, apples & cinnamon, to the next level of deliciousness (without taking it to the next level of fatness).  Enjoy!

It’s been a while since I posted any workout videos, but I felt compelled to share this great yoga routine from Ali Kamenova.  I had been doing HIIT routines continuously all summer and my body had gotten pretty tight, not to mention fatigued.  I felt like a good yoga practice would help get me right and I couldn’t have asked for a better one than this Yoga for Bodybuilders/Weightlifters routine.  After all the pushups and burpees and jackknife crunches, this was just what  the doctor ordered.


Classic Kale, Apple, Carrot, Ginger Smoothie

I call this classic because it’s one of the first smoothies I ever made with my Vitamix.  You will also see this “formula” in just about every smoothie bar anywhere.  Why not make it yourself and save some coin?
