Snacking on Doughnut & Grapes

Grapes and Doughnut

While it doesn’t look like very nutritious, volunteer girls fed doughnuts to hungry American soldiers during World War I. Interesting, yeah?

Choco-Banana-Berry Smoothie


This is just one of my random post-workout drink. I usually mix together whatever is available in the kitchen for as long as its healthy and tasty. Feel free to critique this recipe. That would be great!

I used my usual shaker cup to mix all the ingredients together. Also, don’t forget the blender ball to help incorporating everything well. This one is very easy to do.

Recipe:
Chocolate Soymilk
Strawberry Yogurt
Banana
Ice (optional)
Egg white (optional)
