It was one of those days. So much to do. Which seems to be the norm around here, just always so much to do. Kids and meals and managing a business. Trying to stay healthy. Carpooling. Attempting to find the time to read—well—anything in a day. And on this particular day, all of it felt like soo much to do. Too many to do’s.
So I drop the kids off at school, come back home, crawled back into my bed, and start mindlessly scrolling. Know how when there’s a list of things a mile long, but then you find yourself zoning out to pass the time and procrastinate all of the things? Yeah. This was me.
Somewhere in the middle of trying to hide out from the heavy weight of all of my responsibilities, I stumbled across the myth of Athena.
I’d always thought Athena was just the goddess of war. But as I start reading, her list of things she’s in charge of is EPIC.
Goddess of wisdom
law and justice
Like: whaaaa? That was ALL THE THINGS.
Something happened when I got to the end of that list. I realized having a lot of things on your plate is JUST ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE. It means you’re needed. It means you’re capable. It means you CAN.
And from that point onward, I decided to go full Athena on life. No more complaints, only CAN DO’s.
But to meet a big day, you’ve gotta start the morning off RIGHT. So I’ve put a lot of focus on dialing in a serious morning routine that works.
The Athena Morning Routine
After lots of trial and error. The THREE morning things that help me consistently wake + rock-it-like-Athena is:
Wake early & make the bed right away. That starts the day with an accomplished task.
Move that body for at least 20 minutes. Walk the ‘hood, run the block, do yoga on the deck. Whatever it is, get movin’ on the daily.
Make an Athena Latte. This simple superfood-and-protein spiked coffee is a creamy, dreamy, high-energy way to get satiated.
How to Make an Athena Latte
Blend Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder into a cup of coffee with a tablespoon of coconut oil. And you’ll instantly get a hot cup of creamy coffee, superboosted with protein, fiber AND probiotics. All of that in a scoop of Bob’s Red Mill protein powder.
I’ll prep it in a mason jar with a hand blender, or if I’m making several servings at once, I’ll stick it all in a hi-speed blender and puree until frothy.
Add this cup to your morning routine and kickstart the day with a mug full of nutrients, satiating protein and the best darned latte on the block.
Here’s to early mornings, good health, and a happy life.
Go be the Greek Goddess you were always meant to be.
Serves 1-2 | 5 minutes from start to finish
1 cup brewed coffee, piping hot
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 scoops Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder (chocolate or vanilla)
Combine coffee, coconut oil, and protein powder into blender. (Alternatively, you can use a small hand blender.) Blend until ingredients are well combined, and coffee appears frothy.
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
