Your morning Starbucks is doing nothing for you. If you really want to feel good and make a positive change, you need to try this shake.
This is a milkshake that contains just about everything you need for the whole day and will give you five portions of fruit before you have properly woken up. It’s healthy living made easy.
It’s better than virtually any powder mix you can buy and if you really want to add a scoop of Whey Protein or even egg whites then this is the best pre/post gym protein shake in the world.
Mine never looks as pretty as the one in the picture, not even close. On looks alone, my milkshake will not bring all the girls to the yard. But then that’s not really important.
So what do you need? First, there’s no getting round this, you need a Nutribullet or a budget equivalent. I want to punch the guy on the advert, too, but seriously it’s a life-changing bit of kit.
I paid £40 for mine, so about $70, and it has totally changed the way I eat. It’s had a ridiculously positive impact and this breakfast shake has boosted my energy levels, it has given me nutrients and it means I have done most of my daily recommendations before I think about lunch.
It also gives me a way to eat seeds and now I have small containers of the things. I never ate seeds, I didn’t even know how to. But I know they’re good for you. Now they feature heavily in my diet and I feel better as a result.
I’ll give you some more insight afterwards, but here is the basic recipe for the best breakfast protein shake in the known world, maybe…
- 1 Banana
- Grapes – Handful
- Strawberries – 3-4
- Blueberries – small handful
- Blackberries – Small handful
- Nuts – Handful
- Goji Berries – Pinch
- Dates – 3-4
- Raw Cacao Nibs – Heaped tablespoon
- Pumpkin seeds – Small handful
- Sunflower Seeds – small handful
- Chia Seeds – Pinch
- Pomegranate seeds – Teaspoon
- Oats – 2 heaped tablespoons
- 1 heaped teaspoon – Nutella (Optional)
- 1 scoop Whey Protein (optional)
- Milk or Almond Milk
Then just blitz the crap out of it. That’s the scientific term.
This whole creation costs less than £1 and it’s so much tastier than a morning Starbucks. You can carry it with you on the way to work and it gives you more than five portions of fruit before your day has even begun.
It is thick and it will leave you full, but then that’s kind of the point. I nail this down in the morning and when you see it in front of you it looks huge. Blended, though, you can manage it and it’s pretty much what you need to get you through the day.
If you eat right then you’ll be more alert, you’ll work better, you’ll make better decisions and you won’t get so run down and tired. There really isn’t a downside to this.
If it’s too much then leave some until later. That bit isn’t rocket science. One of these is pretty much all day food and it sure beats a $5 sandwich.
You can add what the hell you like and I hope people do have their own suggestions. I’ll be adding another couple of juice drinks for the day, too, which will ramp up the average person’s natural vitamin and goodness intake through the roof.
It’s one of those lifehacks: a simple change you can make right now with minimal effort and big bang for your buck.
A lot of this stuff is prescribed eating for men who are suffering a bit downstairs, too. It’s no secret that if you’re struggling in the bedroom, or even if you’re not, then good nutrition can help you in a big way.
So if you’re still surviving on a coffee in the morning, try this instead. It will get you started the right way, you can put it in a sippy cup and take it in the car on the train and it’s just the right way to live.
Do it for a week and you will feel a difference. And let me know if you have any killer ingredients!
