After a long summer of indulgent eating, I’m trying hard to get back into a workout routine and fit back into my favorite pair of skinny jeans. It was like one day they decided to shrink about 2 sizes, and it now takes a small army to help zip me into them. Not cool! One side of my brain is saying, “It’s all the dryer’s fault. The dumb dryer shrunk them into child size skinny jeans!” The other smarter, more practical side of my brain is saying, “Get your lazy behind out of bed and dust off the workout DVDs. And for Heaven’s sake, stop eating so much pumpkin bread!”
That bread is gooood. Now that fall (a.k.a. pumpkin-flavored everything season) is here, I can’t get enough of sweet pumpkin treats. But in an effort to conquer those shrunken skinny jeans, I came up with this recipe to satisfy my pumpkin craving without breaking the calorie bank… a healthy, delicious Pumpkin Protein Shake!
