[Week 1] Monday & Friday - Rest Day Recipes (Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie)
You've got to love a training plan that starts off with a rest day! Since Tuesday will be my first long distance run, I want to make great post-run meals ahead of time since I'll probably be too tired once I get home. I'll be making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie since it has complex carbs AND protein. Plus its chocolate peanut butter...hello! Here’s the protein breakdown of my new favorite smoothie: 6 oz greek yogurt → 18 grams 3/4 cup skim milk → 6 grams 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter → 4 grams The yogurt adds a ton of protein to the shake and should be pretty easy on your stomach, which can be sensitive after a run. Here's the recipe, enjoy! Ingredients: 1 large banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 6 oz Chobani 0% Greek Yogurt (or 2%, flavored or unflavored) 3/4 cup skim milk (or your favorite kind of nondairy or dairy milk) 1 Tablespoon honey, maple syrup, or agave 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (any kind you like) Directions: Put all of the ingredients into the blender, in the order listed, and blend on high until thick and smooth. I would start with only 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder, blend, and then add 1 more for a stronger chocolate taste. You may need to stop and stir/scrape down the sides of the blender a few times. Drizzle glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup (optional) and enjoy! If you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you may leave out the honey. Add more peanut butter for a stronger peanut butter taste. Add more milk to make the smoothie thinner, if desired. Add 1 cup of your favorite greens for added nutrition.

What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by TheRenegadePharmacist.com has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
This Juice Melts Cellulite and Burns Fat
This anti-cancer juice is exploding with ingredients that contain high levels of vitamins A and C Regularly drinking this pure juice will affect every aspect of your life. We all know that beauty comes from within; and once you begin hydrating your body with the most nutritionally perfect – organic liquid – everything about you will shine! Your hair, your skin, your eyes, your nails, and your emotional thoughts – you will be wholly renewed and transformed. Once the body and mind start operating on the fuel which God gave you – you will instantly feel energised! This positive outcome will then spill over to all aspects of your life – your work, your relationships, and your self-confidence. The ingredients in this juice expunges mucus and eradicates toxins. Toxins and a too-acidic body contribute to weight gain. The acidic residues infiltrate your cells – causing you to store fat. The antioxidants in citrus fruit and the metabolism booster ginger join hands and saturate the cells – flushing out all the nasty bad stuff. Plus, the fruit acids dissolve the mucus that are keeping those deadly acids hostage in your body. Many of our favourite foods in the Western diet are loaded with acidity – creating acidic garbage in the bloodstream. Such foods include dairy, meat, gluten-flour, coffee, alcohol, sugar, and even pollution. It’s not harmful if you eat acidic foods in tiny amounts, but indulging on very acid-forming foods regularly places a burdensome task on the kidneys and liver. The goal is to ALKALISE, DETOX, and REJUVENATE. This living juice will help you destroy that toxic build-up. After you develop a healthy nutritional lifestyle – loaded with living raw foods – the fat will just melt off. So, join me as we kill those intruders with the potent ingredients listed below. The main ingredient in my special elixir is – you guessed it – grapefruit! Grapefruits are the largest members of the citrus family. They originated outside of Asia and were hybridised in Jamaica (possibly a cross between a pommelo and a sweet orange). A real popular ‘weight loss’ fruit, grapefruits are ‘eliminators’ – making them the ultimate detoxifier. Your liver will love you once you start drinking these citrus delights. Juice fasting with grapefruits (or eating them) for 3-7 days will detoxify your body. It’ll clean out your colon and purify the fluids in your body. Okay… Let’s start juicing! This zingy, zesty juice will instantly wake you and your senses up – making this an excellent breakfast juice. Ingredients 5 Grapefruits 1 Lemon 2 Limes 1/4 Medium Pineapple Handful of Ginger, you be the judge on how much to use Instructions Cut the tops and bottoms of the grapefruits. Then get a sharp knife and cut around the edges to peel off the skin. Remember not to cut the white pith away – as it contains a ton of nutrients. Do the same with the limes, pineapple, and lemon. (**You don’t need to peel the limes and lemon if you own a high-quality juicer) Juice the lemon, limes, ginger, and grapefruits. Then, juice the pineapple. Pour over ice. Salud! (Cheers in Spanish for you non-Spanish speakers) What’s So Important about Vitamin C? Vitamin C is required for repairing and maintaining cells and bones – not to mention fighting off infections. It even lowers your cancer and cardiovascular disease risks. We need to continuously consume vitamin C rich foods – as our bodies don’t store vitamin C. http://bit.ly/1CJLF0i
