Protein breakfast

Breakfast is the hardest meal of the day to get the nutrition that you need, without getting a lot of garbage that you don't need. There are so many easy things you can eat when you're in a hurry to get off to work, the problem is most of the easy breakfasts are all carbohydrates, and not how you should start your day.

To start your day off right, you need a breakfast that will give you the energy you need to get through the morning, and keep you from getting hungry.

This protein shake is the perfect breakfast, it gives you a good balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber to get you going in the morning and keep you going.

The food you eat for breakfast, must keep your body fulled and going until you eat lunch. Breakfast is very important in determining how your day will go. Eating breakfast is critical if weight loss is important to you. If you don't eat, your body will store fat because it feels that it is low on fuel and needs to save fat for later.

Because you haven't eaten for 6 to 10 hours since your last food the day before, your body is low on energy and low on protein, you need a good balance of nutrients to wake you up, keep you alert and keep your body functioning properly.

What You Need For The Protein Shake

  • 12 oz. Whole milk
  • 1 frozen or not frozen banana, frozen will be thicker
  • 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 1 scoop of Whey protein powder
  • handful of frozen raspberries

You can also add other things to this if you want. It is a good way to take Creatine, green food, super food, spinach, or anything else that would go in without ruining the taste. To prepare the bananas, let them ripen to where you feel is the perfect ripeness, then peel them, break them in half and put them in a 1 gallon zip lock bag and keep them in the freezer.

Use the oat right out of the carton, raw. Use your choice of protein powder, any flavor will work, I use vanilla or chocolate. Put all ingredients in a blender mixer, put the protein powder and oats in the blender mixer first, then put the strawberries and the banana's in. Putting the ingredients in that order, will allow the banana's to not stop the blender when you start it. Blend for about 30 seconds. Makes about 24 ounce shake.

The frozen banana the frozen strawberries and the frozen raspberries will make the shake like a smoothie. I have some 32 ounce rubber maid plastic bottles that I use to drink it from. That way I can take it and drink it on the way to work.
