October in Mai

Ok this is going to be a kind of mopey post so I can totally understand if you skip right a head to the smoothie recipe below and leave. might find yourself a bit in a mopey mood? Or maybe life just sometimes isn't as perfect as it seems...maybe we share something? Uh well, it's still up to you ;)

I decided that moping never made anyone feel better or solved any problems so I'm not going to do it (Oh and my last post just happened to have a bit moping in it as well, so I thought we might need a change haha). And if you start thinking about it...there are always some solutions. You just might have to take a risk. But what would life be, without some risks! No fun, right?!

On my way home, early in the morning. Beautiful rainy skyline.
 Oh, well. Just one really short "mopey-ness" (the longer I stare at this word, the funnier it looks...uhm. Anyway) I thought it needed to be mentioned that we have M-a-i (well, nearly June!! Seriously!!...oh and I did mention that before. Ups)) and it's about a cozy 7°C outside plus: Rain. As in rain. And more rain. And more rain. And more. (Which makes me still wonder, while people got so upset that I was going to Vancouver last year. Because the weather must be horrible there, right!?) Nope. This totally tops it. The good thing. We sort of getting a bit closer to their green-ness level...that is sort of nice. (See! There is always something positive).

That leaves me to say: I hope you had a nice weekend?! (Ignoring the rain-part) and if you need a little booster: Here you go!

This one happened last week (after work). I never feel hungry after work although I know I should (since my breakfast is about 7-8 hours history by then) but somehow the stress and a constant growling stomach during the last three hours lead to...not being hungry when it's time to eat. So this just tweaks it perfectly.
Two ways, as in you can keep it healthy with non fat Greek yogurt or you can substitute the Greek yogurt with ice cream to make it a bit more guilty/ sweet treat like. I opted for the healthy version that particularly day.

1 serving, peanut butter chocolate smoothie
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 3 ice cubes
  • about 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • milk (according to texture preferences)
Put all of the above into a blender and mix until smooth. Enjoy ;) (This one is not particularly sweet (my banana wasn't so sweet) so you might want to add a bit of maple syrup...though that's optional).

Ok. I do like the green. And the smell of rain. And the way the air feels.
