Protein rich breakfasts 1. Smoothies

To keep your testosteron level high and your insulin level low and your blood sugar balanced, you have to eat protein.

Within an hour after you woke up, have a protein rich breakfast.

You can use protein powders, there are a lot. Flavoured or unflavoured.

I don’t really like those products, who knows how they were produced.

I prefer natural ingredients, like eggs, whole milk, real fruits.

In this post I will give you a few ideas.

Protein smoothies

To provide 30 -35 g protein

Chocolate smoothie

6-8 egg whites

100 ml milk

2-3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tbsp xilitol

In a protein shaker mix the ingredients and mix with a stick blender until smooth.

Vanilla smoothie

6-8 egg whites

150 ml milk

1-2 tsp vanilla syrup or extract

Banana vanilla smoothie

1/2 – 1 ripe banana

6-8 egg whites

150 ml milk

1-2 tsp vanilla syrup

Ideas:

Banana is usually green on the shelves of the store. And I don’t like green bananas as well as I don’t like bananas every day.

So, what to do? I keep them in a brown paper bag on the kitchen counter with tomatoes and apples. They will make each other ripe in a few days.

I peel them, cut them in slices, in a plastic box in the freezer they will rest until I use them.

Forest fruits smoothie

6-8 egg whites

150 ml milk

1/2 cup frizen fruits

1 tbsp xilitol

Avocado smoothie

6-8 egg whites

150 ml milk

1/2 avocado

1 tbsp xilitol

Pomegranate blackberry smoothie

Pomegranate is a very good antioxidant.

8 egg whites

150 ml milk

1/4 cup pomegranate syrup

150 ml blackberry, frozen

xilitol to your liking

 

And so on …..

You can combine cocoa powder with banana, avocado.

Once in a week I have chocolate smoothie with wholewheat flakes or with oatmeal.

Enjoy!
