I like to eat 5 smaller meals a day. Not only does it keep me full but it’s a great way to boost your metabolism and keep your energy levels up.
Even with Sunday meal prep I don’t have time to cook all my meals so I opt for a meal replacement shake like this one. The calorie count on mine is only 140 so to make it a meal I boost the calories by adding extra things like fruits, veggies, and a healthy fat.
Couple things to note...
️ You can swap unsweetened almond/rice/coconut milk for water
️ Adding frozen butternut squash or cauliflower rice won’t change the flavor and makes it super creamy!
️ Use fresh or frozen fruit. I buy frozen because it’s better for my budget and lasts longer!
️ Collagen peptides are optional. It helps protect joints and has made a difference in my knee pain. It also adds a little extra protein.
️ Your powder matters! Please make sure it doesn’t contain soy, artificial sweeteners or preservatives. Pick one with quality ingredients that shares where it’s sourced and isn’t afraid to refund your money if you don’t like it.
️ Adding a healthy fat is key but make sure your portion size is in check! A tsp of natural PB isn’t as much as you think
Don’t forget to blend and enjoy! You can always change up your flavor profiles for extra variety. If you need help with recipes ideas let me know.
