Shake It Up
Drink and Shake-
Homemade Protein Shakes
20gms of protein from whirling up all these with a milk base
Protein shakes are considered
an important part of any muscle building regime, however, I always recommend
people to get their proteins from natural and unprocessed sources and make
protein shakes themselves at home. Drinking a glass of homemade protein shake
pre and post workout is an easy way of getting 20gms of protein. A big glass of homemade protein shake is a good choice for a nutrient dense high energy breakfast on the go. Kick off your day with this energy load!
To get an easy
healthy and handsome intake of protein, try experimenting whirling your own
base for your shake, 250ml of one of these: skimmed milk/soya milk/almond milk
(average 8gms protein).
For thicker shakes use 4oz greek yogurt (12 gms
protein) or plain yogurt (6.5 gms
protein rich ingredient, use one of these 4oz cottage cheese (14gms protein)
Raw eggs (5.5gms of
protein) or 2Tbsp Peanut butter (8gms of protein) and Ground Flax seed (for fibre and good omega fats)
To add the micronutrient, add chopped
fruits, banana, melon, berries, oranges (1-2 gms of protein average)
additional boost of protein and fibre, add 1 tablespoon, 15gms of Oatmeal (3
in a blender, blend in a thick smooth liquid and drink it all.
Here you go building
solid muscle mass!!!
