This morning we have a simple breakfast of leftover carrot cake + layered banana-beetroot protein smoothie.
Bottom layer: 1/2 frozen bananas + 1 tbsp coconut milk + Garden of Life/sesame protein powder
Top layer: beetroot + mango + 3 tbsp soy milk
Actually I intended it to be a three-colour layered banana-beetroot-mango smoothie but I suppose because I did not use frozen mango, the mango layer became too liquidy and infiltrated into the beetroot layer. Oh wells, at least it’s still quite pretty to look at 😉
I really have and need to stop procrastinating and get started on graduate school applications – writing the personal statements, asking for recommendations and preparing for the MCAT, which cost a few hefty hundreds of dollars. If there’s anything to motivate me, I should remember the following quote:
You’ve gotta wake up every morning and ask yourself, ‘How bad do you want it?‘ How much work are you willing to put forth for the things and people you want and need in your life? Nothing great comes without effort. But I promise you that if it’s something of great meaning in your heart and something you need in your life…EVERY risk, EVERY step and EVERY drop of sweat will be worth it.
