Fit Friday - Smothie Bowls and Foam Rollin Fun

Yay! It is the end of the week and Fit Friday is here. Ruthie from Cooking with Ruthie is here with another delicious recipe. Summer is here and my body craves berries with the warm weather, I can't wait to give this smoothie bowl a try. Along with yummy food my body has been craving some awesome workouts, which also means my foam roller has re-emerged from the closet. Keep reading to see some of the fun I have been having!

 I love smoothie bowls! It's a fun spin on smoothies. I have to admit that sometimes I like to have all the healthy benefits of a smoothie, but then I like to chew my food too so I love that this recipe combines the best of both worlds!

 Oh and you'll love the oats in this recipe- you honestly can't even tell that they are in there at all. Oats are so good for our bodies... they clean out the bad cholesterol in a serious way! Plus, lots of great nutrition. If we want to get really technical... oats in any form lowers bad cholesterol and helps control appetite. Oats also have antioxidants, fiber, electrolytes, phytonutrients. Yah. They're pretty awesome.

Thanks Ruthie!
The foam roller and I were once great friends, but sadly we have grown distant in the last few months. It is time to reignite that relationship! I have decided that this relationship needs to grow a bit this time around, to enjoy a roller for more than just rolling. You read that right, a roller is not just for rolling, today we are going to be working out with it as well. When you are done with your workout, or before you start your workout, the roller will already be out and available to do some rolling on any tight muscles.

1) Push-ups with hands on the roller

2) Push-ups with toes on the roller

1) Planks

2) Mountain Climbers

3)Marching Crunch

2) Balance lunges

Happy Fit Friday!
 Much Love and Peace~
