My brother and his girlfriend are up visiting my husband and I, and while they are still sleeping I thought I would sneak in a post about shakes. Shakes are quick and easy meal replacement for either breakfast, snack, lunch and/or pre/post workout. Be sure to include a complex carbohydrate in your shake if you are replacing a meal, and to include protein & a carbohydrate in your pre/post workout shake.
Here are some ideas for creating your shakes…
The Base of the Shake
Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 scoop of Protein Powder
Pasteurized Egg Whites
Vegetables & Fruits (Frozen or Fresh)
Bananas (great option for pre/post workout)
(or any other vegetable or fruit of your choice)
Natural Peanut Butter (peanuts as the only ingredient)
Natural Almond Butter
Stevia Sweetener (found in health food section of grocery store or any health food store)
1. Start with the Base
2. Add your Protein source
3. Add any Fruit and/or Vegetables of your choice
4. Add any Other Additions if you want.
I hope this helps (and makes sense, sometimes what makes sense in my head makes no sense to anyone else ;)) in creating you shakes.
Please feel free to ask me any questions, or give me ideas for my posts!
