High Protein Breakfast Smoothie
Today I am starting a new adventure. For the past two years of this dessert blogging I have gained 20 pounds!
I am not proud of that. I don’t blame the blog entirely. It’s been my overall eating habits, laziness, lack of planning, and general mindless eating that has packed on these pounds.
My Goals are –
Educate myself about eating better
- Learn more about sugar, fructose, sucralose, lactose agave, honey, maple and any other REAL sweeteners.
- Find an exercise routine that works for me
- Try a lot of new recipes that include a lot more veggies
- Find an eating lifestyle that works for me and my family
- Find and Share inspiration about weight loss and exercise goals
- To share my struggles and bumps along the way
- Make some new treats and snacks that don’t revolve around sugar!
- Lose 20 pounds
My first “recipe” is a Protein shake that I’ve been enjoying for breakfast for the past month.
Yes, it takes a bit to get used to, but you can work up to it. One of the toughest things to eliminate in the morning was my coffee. I like it sweet! I like it with milk. I tried to give it up over the summer, but honestly, I just couldn’t do it. So I started reducing my intake and now I am down to half a cup of coffee. Not half of a mug, a half cup.
I found that by using cold coffee, almond milk and the chocolate protein powder, I got a nice semi-sweet mocha coffee that I tolerated.
Then I added some peanut butter to it.
Then I added a frozen banana to it.
Then I added some spinach to it.
Then I worked up the courage to add some Kale and chia seeds to it.
And I still like it. Pretty Awesome!
All that good stuff, blended up for a healthy, protein packed breakfast that held me over for 4 hours. Not too shabby!
Yes, it took a week for my body to go respond to the “limited” food in the morning, but I’ve gotten over that hump and I’m doing good. I’ll let you know next week if it’s still enough before a morning run.
I’ve tried a few different protein shakes and I really like this CytoSport 100% Whey ProteinChocolate. My husband is a purest and likes to just add his scoop of protein to a cup of water.
I like my way better.
