Welcome to Day 2 of my Protein Mini-Course! In my previous post, I shared with you the basics and main benefits of adding more protein to your diet! If you missed that email, give it a read. Getting adequate protein throughout the day can be a struggle for a lot of folks, especially in the beginning.
The best protein sources will always come from whole foods. However, if you're struggling to hit your protein target for the day, this is where protein supplements (like protein bars and powders) can be very beneficial. So today, I wanted to spend some time on Super Shakes. What's a Super Shake? It's an easy, convenient way to get a serving of protein ... and whatever other ingredients you want to include! All you need is a good blender and a few ingredients. Here's an example of my go-to Super Shake:
12 ounces Fairlife milk (regular milk is fine if you tolerate it well)
2 scoops of chocolate protein powder (or protein powder of your choice)
1/3 cup frozen strawberries
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
1tablespoon of peanut butter
1 fist spinach
Blend it all together and take it with you on the go for a power-packed meal filled with protein, veggies, fruit, and healthy fats! Check out my guide to making a delicious, healthy Super Shake ===> HERE. Give Super Shakes a try and let me know what you think. And if you make one you really like, shoot me a reply with the recipe so I can try it, too!
