Mango Fruit Smoothie

This morning started with an early workout! I made my way to the gym at around 8 am to do a circuit workout, and loved every minute of it. It’s usually so hard for me to wake up in the morning but for some reason I sprang right out of bed. I love how a morning workout sets me up for a great day, and wakes me up. I was craving something sweet after to I opted for a fruit smoothie!

My shoes are kind of hard to see in this picture but I am in love with them! If you’re looking for new sneakers for running, or outdoor activities the Nike Free’s are great!. They’re really light, and airy. Mine are a few years old, but the new ones look even better, and have great patterns and colors!

I was starving when I got home from the gym and started my breakfast off with a smoothie, and finished it off with some scrambled eggs! Heres the recipe for my favorite morning smoothie.

By the way how awesome is the contrast between the turquoise bowl, and my marble counter tops?

I never took a picture of the pasta after it was all thrown together because my phone died, but basically just throw in the cooked and cooled pasta, tomato if desired mint, olive oil, and lemon, and toss until combined!
