Mix up this delicious smoothie with dark chocolate, peanut butter, banana, Greek yogurt, milk, and oats. Tastes like dessert without the guilt.
Between my adventures in Seattle and now LA I have not been eating all that healthy, not that I am complaining because it’s been delicious. To add to the food fest, last night my nephew Luke went trick or treating for the first time and I managed to sneak a couple pieces for myself (while adoring the cutest tool box on the face of the earth). And now today is college football-food day. I decided to mix up a slightly healthier peanut butter and chocolate recipe to balance out all the rest and feel slightly less guilty. I am also making up for the break in my gym work out schedule by lifting babies. Maybe some crunches with my newest nephew Griffin on my stomach or kicking my feet while big brother Luke sits on my feet. Quality time and a work out!
