A Busy Girl's Shake
« on: February 20, 2009, 02:18:40 PM »
I am completely committed to a whole foods diet - no doubt about that. Fresh produce, animal protein and healthy fats are the basis of my diet but lately I'm discovering that I can't keep this up ALL the time. Eating this way takes time and although it is totally worth it, sometimes I just can't do it.

My usual routine is to prepare a whole ton of food on Sunday or Monday nite for the next few days. This is a great system that saves time (and $$) during the week. Also, preparing meals ahead of time guarantees that I'll be eating quality food because it's all food that I've made. When I simply don't have time to prepare food in advance, I resort to a protein shake. It's easy in a pinch and tastes good too. The downside is that it doesn't satisfy my hunger like real food and I am usually starving 2 hours after drinking. That being said, I wouldn't recommend this for everyone.

Busy Girl's Shake:
Paleomeal whey powder (excellent source- from grass-fed cows)
1/2 cup Coconut Milk, canned
juice from 1 Lemon
1 scoop Green powder (rich in minerals)
2 tbs Brewer's yeast (excellent source of b vitamins, minerals and amino acids)
organic Cherries, frozen
2 tbs ground Flaxseed (good source of fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids)
1/2 cup Goat's milk Kefir (good probiotic)
*Throw this all in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!
