My NYC commute to work this morning was an absolute dream! Yes, you heard me correctly. I got to take in some rays, get free iced coffee, and do a bit of sight-seeing, too But I’ll get to that in a bit!
My chocolate protein powder finally came in the mail last night, so I was beyond psyched to make a smoothie this morning! Note, buy this stuff while you can! It’s usually $44, but I got mine for $18 and free shipping…gotta love Amazon.
I tossed all this shiz into the blender:
- 1 handful spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tsp pure cocoa powder
- 3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
- 1 small scoop peanut butter
This totally hit the spot on a hot summer morning. Tomorrow I’m going with some freshly chopped cherries and no banana, primarily because I have a buttload (it’s a measurement from the metric system) that I need to use up
On our way to work, Kman and I met up with two of our friends/co-workers and took the ferry from Jersey City to Pier 11, and then hopped on another one to DUMBO! NYC Waterway is running a free ferry to Brooklyn this week, so we had to take advantage of it. It was such a delightful way to get to work…and SO pretty!
And any time there’s awesome free coffee involved…game over.
You’ll have to pardon the hair. I spent the first 90 seconds of a 2 minute ferry ride simultaneously trying to keep my Medusa hair under control and hold my skirt down so I wouldn’t flash everybody.
I went so far as to loudly exclaim, “Oh my GOD this is the best thing EVER!!” when I found out the Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee was free
What a wonderful Wednesday so far!
