Proper nutrition is very important in making, and seeing, progress in your health and fitness routine. As I’ve stated in the past, eating meals consisting of ‘lean’ proteins, veggies and ‘good’ fats is optimal in the digestion process. We suggest eating 4-6 meals a day. A great option for getting all of those meals in is a Shake! However, don’t make the mistake of replacing too many of your real meals with shakes. Even though they are healthy, you still need veggies, fruit, and protein from whole food sources.

To get you started on the path of making ‘healthy’ shakes at home, I’ve included a shake for the ‘average’ (190lb) male. (Females would have 1/2 the serving)

Strawberry Banana Shake (a great post workout option)

1 scoop strawberry whey protein
1 cup ice
Splenda, to taste
