When I know I’m going to be short on time and won’t be able to have a solid meal, my go-to meal is not your typical protein shake, but instead what I call a SuperShake.
This is ideal for those who are short on time but still need a massive nutrient dump in their body to keep them going AND keep them from making bad decisions out of hunger.
But first… some people wonder if protein shakes are good for you. The answer is it depends. There is rarely ever a black-and-white answer in the health and fitness industry when it comes to what is ‘healthy’. I would much rather have a person eat real food than drink powders, BUT I want you to look at it this way… if the shake is going to help you make a better decision and keep you from making a poor one. Then I consider that healthier.
If you can get in real food, do it. But if time is a constraint, like for those who are busy, then a protein shake or what I’m going to show you below, a SuperShake, is by far much better than fast food.
SuperShake: The Better For You Protein Shake
In a blender – Nutra-ninja is my preferred blender due to blending in a cup vs a pitcher; if you don’t have one, Walmart or Target usually has them, or you can go to Amazon HERE ⇐
- 1 cup of lactose-free milk -you can use almond milk in place for a lower-cal option
- 1 cup of liquid egg whites from a carton – or you can use protein powder of choice; if you use protein powder, do 2 cups of your milk of choice.
- 1 handful of leafy greens -spinach is best
- 1 packet of low-sugar Quaker oats oatmeal – trust me on its part
- 1 serving of Chia seeds
- 1 serving of frozen fruit of choice
- If you need a bit more sweetness, everyone is different, then add in some SplendaZero HERE ⇐ trust me on this one… just do it.
Blend and enjoy!
It will take a few tries to find the flavor combination that you like, but here are some tips to get the most out of this shake.
- The stronger the fruit, the better tasting – I find that bananas and dark berries work best
- Frozen fruit is better
- Add sweeter… again trust me on this.
- I personally don’t use almond milk but do 2 cups of liquid egg whites. This is 60g of protein.
I’ve had 1-2 a day nearly every day for 5 years now; it makes that much of a difference.
Much love to you!
