My Favorite Protein Green Smoothie

Looking for a high protein green smoothie? This is my favorite.  This protein green smoothie is inspired by a recipe I made a while ago for Pure Goodness on Instagram. I’ve been making the smoothie non-stop since then, so I thought I should share it on the blog as well! I don’t believe that we need protein powder every day to attain our protein needs. Simply eat nuts, seeds, legumes and other high protein foods every day and you can easily meet your needs. However, I love using protein powder in smoothies when I eat them as a meal.

Sugar-Free Backpacking Menu + Energizing Trail Mix!

No-Bake Salted Caramel Energy Bites

I drove over 7 hours Tuesday to Quebec and I stayed in Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier for two nights. The first day it was raining, but I went hiking anyways. The clouds were hugging the mountains and it was beautiful! After hiking, I spent some time reading and doing yoga in my big tent, hiding from the rain (I had such a hard time putting up that tent by myself, I’m dreading having to put it up again tonight!) This morning I’m doing a small hike before leaving for Gatineau, where I’ll stay for one night. After…
