Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

I go with one of these:

2 heaping scoops of protein (45-55g protein)
1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1 serving of BCAA
1 cup of gatorade/or natural juice
add water to desired level.

This is if you are going protein/carb combination. Cool thing about this one is you dont need a blender. If you are still hungry with this you can have a piece of fruit with it.

2 heaping scoops of protein (45-55g protein)
1-2 tablespoons olive oil (you have to build up with this otherwise you'll be on the toilet!!)
1 cup milk
add water to desired level, and enjoy with a handful of almonds or cashews.
this is for protein/fat combination.

I'm the same cooking is out of the question in the morning, plus it takes a lot longer to pound down 5-6eggs, 1-2 turkey sausages, some potatoes, and toast, then it does to have a shake, and I can enjoy my shake while letting the dog do his thing. But weekends when I can take my time...anything goes for breakfast.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

I've read somewhere about shakes/smoothies not being a good idea to have for breakfast every day. Something about your body ingesting/digesting it too rapidly. Is there any truth to that?

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

My morning shake at 7am:

1/2 c blueberries
1/2 c strawberries
1/4 c walnuts
1/4 c pecans
1 c milk
3 tbs shredded coconut
Sometimes I'll also throw in half a banana. This shake is delicious and fills me up for a good while. I get almost all my fruit for the day in this shake.

Then at 11:30am I am usually eating 3 eggs with some bacon. I make the shake and eggs every morning and usually takes no longer than 5-10mins.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

My morning shake is usually:

-1 can coconut milk
-1 banana
-1 handful spinach/bok choy/kale or green of choice. Spinach is mildest
-Mixed Frozen Fruit
-8 oz OJ
-3 tsp fish oil

Sometimes I'll drink a protein shake on the side, since I hate how it makes the shake taste. Usually just eat eggs or beef for my morning protein.

"shakes/smoothies not being a good idea to have for breakfast every day"

Define "Not good". It means different things to different people.

Jim, I just made the #1 smoothie. Came out pretty good! Thanks! Like you said, not the most delicious smoothie ever, but pretty darn good, and I love that it had lots of fruits and veggies.

I used 2 big carrots, 2 apples, small amount of grapes (all I had left), 1 banana, good amount of broccoli, and 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder. Made 2 servings. Didn't add ice, because I ran out of room in the blender.

Not good as in we shouldn't do it. I don't really know any other ways to define it.

Re: Shake for breakfast but what to put into it?

Although I have not tried them yet, I have heard of "meat shakes". If you have access to grass-fed organ meats, I've heard liver or kidney in the sake is good. Now that's nutritious.

And I'm not kidding! I'll have to try one myself someday, but I almost never drink a shake of any kind other than some fruit thrown in the blender.
