Hello from West Palm Beach, Florida! If you didn’t know I am here, well then you are clearly not following me on Snapchat. Just kidding, but seriously: I finally boarded the Snapchat train, and I am currently a wee bit obsessed. Unfiltered life of the Nutrition Nut — follow along @hillontherun.
I’m here in West Palm Beach for a conference/certification course in worksite wellness. Sitting 8:00am to 5:00pm while listening to lectures is anything but healthy; thank goodness for hotel gyms and Whole Foods. Saviors of the week.
Speaking of Whole Foods, I had a smoothie from Whole Foods (in California) a while back called the Almond Butter Cup Smoothie – or something of the like – and I knew I had to recreate it home. Think chocolate milkshake consistency, except created with healthful ingredients like potassium-rich banana, plant-based protein powder, energy-dense almond butter, and creamy non-dairy milk. This powerhouse of a smoothie is a nutrient-rich, satiating snack that tastes like a chocolate almond butter cup!
P.S. Shout out to my dad who made not one, but two, rustic white backdrops for my blog photography. He handcrafted them himself and delivered them to me, 5 hours away. That’s an awesome dad – thank you!
