Orange Berry Vanilla Green Smoothie

IMG_8778

Here’s a super duper quick post. Whenever I make a smoothie that turns out exceptionally yummy, I have to share it with you.

It was light but still great fuel for my workout. Cheers!

Apple Pie Oats With Maple Walnuts

Apple Pie Oats With Maple Walnuts

The key to a good, palatable bowl of oatmeal is retaining some of the original oat texture and preventing the transformation to mush.
