Green pumpkin smoothie & Cake Boss

Happy Tuesday!

My day is off to a healthy start, and I feel really energized (especially since the baby slept in until 8:30 am).

After my usual morning routine with him, I had a nice cold glass of ice water with lemon followed by a delicious smoothie.

(Yes.  My Valentine’s decorations are out already.  I couldn’t resist!)

Green Pumpkin Smoothie


1 scoop vanilla pea protein (plant-based protein is my favorite)

Huge handful of spinach

1/2 cup canned pumpkin


1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 tablespoon ground flaxseed

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)

dash of cinnamon

dash of pumpkin pie spice

3 or 4 ice cubes

Blend it all together and enjoy!

Despite my healthy morning, I wasn’t quite so healthy yesterday.

I absolutely couldn’t resist having a bit of this incredibly delicious cake made by my father (who shall now be called Cake Boss).

Unlike most times, I did save some for MT as well. 😉

It’s a good thing that I didn’t know my father could make such amazing desserts while I was pregnant.  I probably would have asked him to bake me something everyday!

Do you watch Cake Boss?  MT and I love that show, and we’re always amazed by Buddy’s creations.  I’d love to visit his bakery in Hoboken one day.

Have a good one!
