    What is a good well rounded shake that I can mix with milk or water for a nutritional breakfast every morning. I would something in line with a more nutritional and complete Carnation Instant Breakfast; with less sugar.

    I do a protien shake 3-4 days a week. if you are trying to save work, this isn't it, but it is a great way to get nurishment.


    I take a handfull of kale and blend it with a little coconut water with a hand blender. then I put in a scoop of protien, a little peanut butter, a handfull of frozen blueberries, a half teaspoon each of tumaric, cinnimon ginger and two type of "superfood" alge, and top it off with either cherry or pomegranite juice or kaffir. then I blend the whole thing smooth.

    I have gotten used to the taste, but it really delivers all sorts of stuff that you can use and might not get in your daily diet.

    Peel banana's, break them in half, and freeze them.

    3/5th milk
    2/5th kefir
    1/2 frozen banana
    2 scoops of protein
    1/2 tbl spoon spirulina
    A dollop of peanut butter

    It's very quick to make. I even keep a measuring spoon out just for the spirulina. I get the bananas every week. Otherwise, they turn brown if you leave them in the freezer too long.

    If I really want a smooth morning, I also put any supplements in a small tea up and get my coffee maker ready ect. It makes for a fast, rush free morning.

    I'd also recommend a pack of these in the morning:

    5g of fiber per pack. 1 pack has 2 small wafers. The cinnamon wafers taste just fine. I dip them in my coffee. Not only do you add a lot of fiber to your diet, but they will also help keep your hunger at bay until you lunch break, so you are less likely to pig out then.

    skim milk, casein, whey, oatmeal

    shake

    drink


    all that other stuff requires a blender and then you have to wash it out

    and pb doesnt mix well. just eat some nuts if you need some fats

    Have you tried a green smoothie? It's like a Jamba/Booster/Jugo Juice that will cover over half of your daily fruit/vegetable intake

    1 apple
    1 orange/banana
    2 handfuls of greens (spring mix, spinach, lettuce, celery)
    1-2 tablespoons of psyllium husks (if additional fibre wanted)
    1 cup of water

    Blend, yields between 1-1.5 litres depending on size of fruit

    If you want it really smooth you'll need a high powered blender though, I use a vitamix

    Nutrition derived from drinks != nutrition derived from actual food. It takes like ten minutes to whip up a real breakfast, just do it.

    OK my whey protein does not actually have protein. I forgot aqueous nutrients aren't nutrients. Gonna just start eating powder now instead.


    Edit: if your talking about like juices then yeah I agree.

    look my dude, i know that in the past year or so you've gone from zero diet/training knowledge to a decent amount (or maybe you had the knowledge before and simply weren't applying it to yourself) and you're really eager to share all this new-found knowledge and all the misc memes you've picked up, and you seem to have the basics covered (although your reading comprehension is on like a 3rd grade level), but sometimes it's best to lurk more.
