Eating on the go is common.
We grab what we can, making the best possible decision with a limited selection and hope that we don’t feel like too much crap later.
You’ve heard that you need to meal prep.
Prepare meals ahead of time so that you are less tempted to eat gas station food or coffee shop pastries, BUT when you just get home from the office, or you’re just waking up to go to the office, the thought of cooking food just may not be for you.
You’re short on time; you don’t have time to meal prep.
For those in that situation, this is when we introduce Super Shakes.
Now I’ve used forms of super shakes for a long time; they are not your traditional protein shake. You know the kind where you use protein powder, milk or water, in a shaker cup and do the awkward shaker dance?
No shaking necessary here.
This is a blend of REAL food.
In fact, the first time I ever used a Super Shake was breakfast years ago when I would get up at 4 am to train.
Since then, I’ve tested and tried out MANY different super shake options, and I wanted to pass along some of my personal favorites that will leave you feeling satisfied with energy, NOT bloated and energy crashing just 30min later.
All you will need is REAL food (protein powder is NOT required but having different flavors CAN help) and a pretty durable blender.
I’d personally recommend a Nutri Ninja (can range from $50-$150) or Vitamix, the Cadillac of blenders. If you already have a Vitamix awesome, you’re set, but if you had to pick from the two, I’d start with a midrange Nutri Ninja.
Here is my favorite one:
Granny’s Breakfast Shake
- 12 oz water or almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 1-2 scoops vanilla flavored protein (I use liquid egg whites)
- 1 apple, core removed, and sliced into wedges (I prefer granny smith apples)
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 serving of almond butter
- 1 cupped handful of UNcooked oats
- Ice and cinnamon as desired (optional)
Blend and done!
