I started today off with my new pre-workout usual.
A super thick smoothie, served in a bowl, eaten with a spoon. This one consisted of a frozen banana, 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s Very Cherry frozen berries (sadly, my bag should have been called Very Blackberry), 2 tablespoons of flax meal, and 1 cup of almond milk.
I went to the gym for a 100% killer arm workout and walked to Sendik’s for some discount fruit (5 bananas + 4 pears for $1.68!). When I got home, I needed to give my shaky and exhausted arm muscles some protein, so I made this divine chickpea salad.
