I have been wearing my boot less and less over the past couple of days, however. Today it is after noon and I haven't put it on yet. I am icing like it's my job and around the house have been wearing my Birkenstocks for the arch support. My left foot is taped up, thinking of taping my right to see if I can get away with that and still have only a mild amount of pain. The idea of going for a short run today to "see how I feel" crossed my mind this morning, but after a little googling about plantar fascia issues I decided more rest is always better, so I won't run until I ask my podiatrist on Monday.
So, I also wanted to share with you a yummy recipe that I found on Skinny Taste. It is for a healthier shamrock shake! It is actually pretty yummy, which I discovered when I made it today.

Go to the link to get the recipe, but here are the changes I made, simply because of the ingredients I had on hand:
-handful of spinach instead avocado
-Dannon low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of the brand she suggested
-peppermint extract (have NO idea why she doesn't want people to use that, as that is what is in a shamrock shake!)
My only complaint about the version I made was that it was like thick milk, NOT nice and thick like a milk shake.
So give this a try and let me know what you think! Not exactly as decadent as the Mickey D's version, but much, much less guilt-inducing. We get a shamrock shake every year on St. Paddy's Day, but every year I think "ugh, I love this but it is SO many calories!"
Do you make shamrock shakes a tradition?
