Good morning, friends!
Today I’m up bright and early to get ready for my first day of school. I have extreme butterflies and feel more nervous than I ever have for a first day of school before, but I think that’s a good sign. I have a really good feeling about this school year and I just want to soak it all up. I know I’m going to love it.
Something else I love is Gnarly Nutrition.
I’ve spoke about Gnarly Nutrition on my blog before when I partnered up with them to host a giveaway for their whey protein powder, but I have even more exciting news!
I have continued to work and grow my relationship with them and am now a Diplomat of Gnar. What this means is that I’m going to be working with them even more closely, continue advertising for them, and begin writing blog posts for them on their own blog.
I’m really excited for this new partnership and hope that you give Gnarly Nutrition a try if you haven’t done so yet. They offer my favourite type of whey protein powder, which is an all natural whey protein powder that contains, 25g New Zealand whey protein, 5.5g BCAAs, 4g Glutamine and is gluten free, sweetened with Trulicious®, and no artificial flavours, colours, or sweeteners.
I have added a Gnarly Nutrition image in my sidebar, which will take you directly to their site. Once you’re there, you can purchase any of the amazing products that they offer. My personal favourite is their Chiseled Chocolate Whey Protein Powder, which is why I am sharing a recipe with you today using that exact protein powder as one of the ingredients!
I’m trying my very best to accomplish the goals I’ve set for myself this month. One of my goals is to try new recipes, whether that mean creating a new recipe of my own or trying delicious recipes that I’ve pinned on Pinterest or have taken special note of over the years, so I’m challenging myself to get out of my breakfast rut of eggs and toast or eggs and a bagel or eggs and sweet potatoes by trying new recipes especially at breakfast time.
Variety is good for the body, so I decided to switch things up yesterday for breakfast and I came up with a Chocolate Zucchini Oat ‘n Yogurt Bowl. I know. It’s a mouthful, but trust me, you’ll want to stuff your mouthful with this creation.
Chocolate Zucchini Oat ‘n Yogurt Bowl
1 c 2% plain Greek yogurt
1 serving Gnarly Chiseled Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
1 small zucchini, shredded (approximately 1 cup)
1/2 c old fashioned rolled oats
a splash of almond milk to help mix everything together
toppings of your choice.
Yesterday I topped this delicious breakfast with figs and walnuts.
Walnuts are one of my very favourite nuts. They are so buttery in flavour and high in omega 3 fatty acids. Figs also added a nice little kick to this yogurt and oat bowl. It was my first taste of fig of the season and it made me sad that I had waited until now to buy them! They added the perfect amount of sweetness and also added a good source of fibre and potassium to my meal.
I’m so happy I finally shared a new recipe with you. It’s been way too long. Sorry about that.
It’s school time now, though! I’m out the door!
