Banana Lovin and Jay Robb Savings

by HEAB on August 20, 2009

Yesterday, I used the Wii Fit in our yurt.  The first time I Wii’d the following happened:

  1. I learned I cannot hula-hoop to save my life.
  2. My push-ups are only Couch Potato worthy.
  3. I discovered my kick ass talent for running in place.
  4. I was so sore that I could barely walk the dogs the next day.

Didn’t do any more Wii for 10 days…until yesterday.  It’s almost creepy how much that machine remembers about you, but it’s a great workout.  I improved all my scores, and I’m not nearly as sore today. Anyone else out there Wii?  I know Deb is a fan.  Oh CD…I think I have another investment idea for us. 😉

Afterwards, I made a smoothie WITH a banana. No berries included.

Oh my gosh, this bowl was so filling and surprisingly delicious.  The mix included:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 2 TBSP chia seeds soaked in the water for 15 minutes
  • 1/2 tsp. guar gum
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 4 – 5 ice cubes

Try the banana/romaine combo.  So light and refreshing.  The gums made it really thick and creamy, not icy at all.  For questions about the gums, I refer you to The Smoothie Girl, my gums pimp.

OK, who wants to save on Jay Robb online orders? Been thinking about ordering some rice protein powder for yourself? Well, time to get on that!
