This is what lunch has looked like this week. Not shown is what I have eaten along with the big salad—leftover chicken, a fried egg, bratwurst.
But my favorite thing is the berry smoothie I've been whipping up as a midafternoon snack.
Put about a cup of cold water in a quart jar, add half a banana, about 1/4 cup of blueberries, and about 1/2 cup of strawberries. I freeze the fruit so it's really cold and helps thicken the smoothie.
Add 3 tablespoons of protein powder. I can't do whey protein, so this is soy. I know there are some that say soy is bad, while others say soy is good. It's confusing. I don't have a problem with soy.
Blend the whole works together with one of those wand blenders.
And enjoy! Mmm...
Here's another favorite from this week. The Trucks and Tedeschi Band has a new album out called Revelator, and it is going right in my shopping cart on my next Amazon order. Derek Trucks won a Grammy last year. My brother knew him in Florida way back when Derek was still a kid, honing his guitar chops and hanging around The Allman Brothers Band. He's now married to Susan Tedeschi, a talented musician/guitarist in her own right. A power duo of blues rock! I dare you not to bob your head to this one.
