*NOTE – It turns out that starting this challenge on a whim on the weekend was way harder than I was prepared for.  There are more opportunities than usual to eat out.  And tonight when my hubby requested that the baby and I join him for take-out while he had a break at work, I couldn’t resist.  Still, I didn’t chalk the whole night up as a loss.  I just did the best I could with the decisions I made.

Evening Snack: Green Peanut Butter Milkshake
I know this sounds bizarre, but it’s a scrumptious concoction that I created to satisfy the sweet tooth and get some extra greens in on those days when I might not have done as much as I would have liked!

In a high speed blender:
generous handful of spinach
1 banana
1 cup soy milk (any plant milk will do)
2 Tbsp peanut butter
4-6 walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
flax seed, hemp seed, chia seed will pack a superfood punch
Optional – 2 Tbsp hemp protein powder

Blend everything to a smooth liquid, then add 1 1/2 – 2 cups ice and blend again.  Add more ice to make it thicker like soft-serve, less to make it like a milkshake.  If you go too far one way or the other, just add more ice or milk to adjust.
