I scored a Vitamix off Nate last week as a super amazing anniversary present. So naturally, I have been shoving everything I possibly can into it!
After riding for 5 hours full of hills I got home starving ready to make a huge smoothie when Nate surprised me with the Vitamix – perfect timing.
As the training has really upped lately it’s hard to maintain motivation for every training session. Nate had a great idea to mix things up by theming weeks starting with “Everything different week” to help us keep the motivation up.
Everything different week involved eating different things throughout the day as it’s easy to get into the habit of eating the same stuff weekly For dinner it got us looking at new recipes which was awesome.
The week also involved mixing up training sessions and changing up exercises in the gym.
It was a really refreshing approach and actually quite challenging!
One of the gems that came out of the “different foods” was this Bircher Mueseli Smoothie. Now the credit for this recipe has to go to Nate – he suggested we make a bircher smoothie – best idea!
This recipe serves 2.
The bits and pieces
1 C oats
1 green apple, chopped (skin on)
