The sugar has to go!

Training for the marathon has been going pretty good. Lately I've noticed that I just haven't been getting enough protein in my diet, but always way too much carbs. Last week I tried to put an end to that. Cutting out some sugar (& caffeine) in my diet. Every morning I would drink a large regular with a shot of french vanilla from Tim Horton's. This is usually all I would drink for coffee during the week, but Saturdays & Sundays I tended to drink a little more. Plus I would have diet coke at lunch (not all the time mind you, but too much to be honest).

Protein Shakes

I have been creating some new protein shakes as I need to add more protein in my diet. I've created some recipes and thought I'd share some. Blueberry & Banana 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries 1/2 banana 1 tbsp flax seed oil 1/2 cup coconut water 1 serving of your favourite protein powder Strawberry & Banana 1/2 Banana 1/2 cup of Strawberries 1 tbsp Honey 1 tbsp Flax Seed Oil 1/2 cup coconut water 1 serving of your favourite protein powder I also tried the Strawberry & banana without the honey and it is fine.
