First yoga, then protein shakes. Now that's what I call a solid start to a beautiful day.

Hello everybody! 

Yesterday, Meg and I began our day at 9:45 (early for Meg) by taking a great yoga class called "XFlowsion" at my yoga studio, "Yoga Shelter". This yoga class was not traditional in any sense, it was partially kickboxing and partially yoga. When Meg and I got back to my house we were really hungry so we decided to experiment with two different kinds of protein shakes. Below are the recipes for them and some pictures. 

Green "Vega" Protein Shake:
1 frozen banana
1 scoop (2 if you would like) of Vega Original Flavor Protein Powder (available at most health food stores such as Whole Foods or you can order it online from the following website: http://myvega.com/)
           -The Vega brand also makes other protein powder flavors such as berry, chocolate, and vanilla          
1 cup of ice cubes 
Unsweetened almond milk (start with one cup then add more as needed) 

-Blend all of the ingredients in a blender and enjoy! 

Banana-Date Shake (very sweet) 
4 pitted medjool dates
1/2 cup of raw whole cashews
1 frozen banana (freezing the banana gives the smoothie a more creamy and satisfying texture) 
Unsweetened almond milk (start with 3/4 cup then add as needed) 

-Blend all ingredients and then consume your delicious creation
