I started out blending a lot of my meals because it was the only way I would eat certain foods. For example, cottage cheese and carrots. There is just something about them that makes me cringe when I swallow and it never settles right in my stomach after (I know it is probably all in my head). However, if I blend these babies together I have no problem drinking them. So for those of you would like to know, this is how it goes:
- 10 almonds
- 1 tbsp. of chia seeds
- 1/2 of a large carrot or however much you would like
- handful of baby spinach
- 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of egg whites (uncooked)
- 2 scoops (or however much desired) of Isagenix Want More Energy for flavoring
- Ice as needed
- Water to desired thickness
Approximate nutritional value:
- 252 kcal
- 19g carbs
- 6g fat
- 9g protein
- 304mg sodium
Usually I would also add 1/2 cup of cottage cheese or do 1/4 cup of greek and cottage cheese. Unfortunately Sam’s Club had this huge recall on the tubs I usually buy so I haven’t gotten around to buying more. Thanks for the recall Sam’s Club by the time I got the message I had already eaten it all :-p (I’m still alive and well thank God…).
Also to explain the baggies, I am a very busy woman all of a sudden! God answered my prayers and I am finally going to hopefully be working 40+ hours a week! So here goes no life :-p. I am in a lot of debt thanks to my bipolar disorder, but I won’t let that get me down, I will fight it and do whatever I can to get ahead! I just pray that I won’t get knocked back down! (so digressed there….) Baggies! Sheesh my attention span really kicked in there… I just made some prepped baggies so it is easier for me to make my shakes in the morning when I need to run out the door!
I am also in no way trying to push the Isagenix products on you. I just find it easier to get the protein I need using a powder shake mix, and tastier too with their electrolyte flavors. If I didn’t add the citrus flavor that contains electrolytes etc. it would be extremely hard for me to drink the shake. The citrus makes it way more than bearable. I have even grown to love it.
Just remember, this is a *healthy shake*, and do not expect it to be like something you get from McDonalds.
Any feedback or suggestions would be very much appreciated ❤ Thank you for your support and love in following me. I really love sharing my life with others, and hope I can be here for you if you ever need anything.
