Protein Shakes

Most people cannot tell the difference between thirst and hunger. I find my self eating when I am actually only thirsty. After a hard work out I am needing liquid far more than food. But even professional muscle builders tell you to consume protein after a hard work out.

But the hardest part of making a protein shake is to keep the carbohydrates low. Make your own combination, different every time.

Remember: “Soylent green is people”!

  • Powdered milk non-instant! (soy has much less carbohydrates!)
  • Whey protein is a $cam even if it is protein! But is it?
  • Chia seeds will make it thicker and are possibly the highest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. To speed up the absorption of liquid grind the seed first.
  • Almond milk is a blend of rice carbohydrates and other unrelated stuff, unless you make it your self by soaking and blending almonds.
  • Almond flour very filling! (affordable if you don't use much)
  • Egg white is the best protein! Powder is very expensive. Just get an egg separator.
  • Coconut milk sounds good to me.
  • Peanut butter! Freshly ground! This will take a machine to blend. But it is really tasty with cocoa, and banana.
  • Greek Yogurt or any kind is really good for a topping.
  • Oat meal whirl quick-oats to a flour (a little will thicken the liquid and hold the almond meal in suspension soaking over night works better) and it has a special type of fiber that helps you feel fuller longer.
  • Wheat germ? Sweet nutty flavor.
  • Cocoa will disguise flavors.
  • Carob has more carbs, but it is sweat!
  • Vanilla bean powder? Or extract without alcohol!
  • Stevia (refined crystals do not have a bad after taste, but it is much stronger than sugar, be careful)
  • Banana for sweeter would be better than sugar. They do have a lot of carbohydrates, but goodly amounts of potassium.
  • Mint extract. Peppermint with cocoa.
  • Strawberry! Fresh or powder would be fantastic in this.
  • Hemp protein powder tastes like dirt. But it can be disguised with cocoa.
  • Chlorella or Spirolina? Both green slime, but they can't be as bad as if it were right out of the swamp!
  • Maca powder, a root imported from south america! Another $cam!!
  • Acidophilus would be very good in this, for the live intestinal bacteria. Digestion is the key to good health.
Just chocolate milk with egg and yogurt is the simplest.
