Hey, how about some vegan travel tips?
pop over to One Green Planet to read all about a couple of my strategies to beat the heat when training which includes… (never mind, looks like One Green Planet took it down, so recipe below!)
…Chocolate “Ice Cream” for Breakfast
Training during the dog days of summer can be tough. One way to beat the heat is to get out early and to bring along water or an electrolyte beverage. I prefer electrolytes from mother nature–coconut water–with fresh lemon or lime juice.
What about after that hot workout? Try this cool, protein-packed breakfast filled with good carbohydrates.
JL’s Chocolate “Ice Cream” for Breakfast
Serves 1 -2
- 1/2 c cashews
- 1/2 c frozen mango chunks
- Half a frozen banana, cut into chunks
- 1/4 c uncooked, rolled oats
- 2T dark chocolate hemp protein powder
- Place all ingredients in a food processor (use the S blade) and pulse to desired consistency.
This is a refreshing, filling breakfast — and it just happens to double as a terrific, healthy dessert, too!
We’re up early and plan to get out for a bike ride, looping the lake a couple of times, before watching the Tour de France. The rest of the day will be lakeside! If you’re in the U.S., how are you enjoying your Fourth of July?
