My Favorite Protein Shake

In Nutrition by AleahS / July 8, 2018 / 0 Comments

Welcome back to the blog! Today, I’m sharing my favorite protein shake recipe. I love this shake for breakfast, or a post workout nutrition boost!

Place all ingredients in Vitamix or blender: 

1 scoop Vega Sport protein

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

½ cup dry oatmeal

½ frozen banana

2 tsps almond butter (if right after a workout, omit this)

3 cubes ice

TIP: Add less/more ice to get the smoothie consistency you want.

I always use PLANT based protein (no dairy, growth hormones, or antibiotics). 

Cheers!

Let’s chat gym bag essentials!

I’m always dragging around a whole bag with my entire life in it, who’s with me?

I pulled these things straight out of my bag #realness top to bottom:

Nike sports bra

New balance Flywheel tights

Nuun – electrolyte tablets, makes water taste way better and keeps you hydrated (clean ingredients)

Burts bees – I’m a psycho about chapstick and always have one of these handy

Powerbeats wireless headphones – music is life

RX bar – for when you’re hangry and don’t want to go hulk on people

Sunnies – these ones are DIFF, they give a pair of reading glasses away for every pair sold #giveback

Good vibe bracelets from @themothermanifestor

Lululemon headband

Mini band by Perform Better– for muscle activation pre-workout (stay tuned for more of this on a future post)!

What’s in your gym bag? Share your secrets on what I need to add!

Coffee Addicts Unite!

Real talk, if bae and coffee were both hanging off a cliff, who would you save?

Anyone super guilty of needing coffee every single day? I’m not fully awake until I’ve had a cup.. or two.

What’s your go to drink? 

Mine are: Nitro cold brew or a red eye.

Coffee actually has huge health benefits like:

+ Boosts athletic performance – coffee 1 hour pre-workout can improve your performance 

+ Helps you burn fat – caffeine helps fat cells break down body fat

+ Coffee brightens your mood – caffeine increases production of serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline (the feel good hormones) which elevate your mood

Studies show that drinking up to four 8-ounce cups of coffee per day is safe.

FIT TIP: Add in’s to coffee can add up calories fast. I recommend using almond milk and stevia if needed.

Cheers!
