Meal replacement shakes(Advice please)
edited March 2016 in Food and Nutrition
Due to my crazy work schedule I often skip breakfast, eat a large fast food meal and dinner is usually just a snack and that's my day. I'm starting fresh on this site and I'm working towards healthier eating and cutting out fast foods but I still struggle with breakfast. I'm not a morning person and can't seem to ever wake up early enough to make myself something healthy. I was thinking a meal replacement shake in the mornings would be quick and better than not having anything. What would you recommend for a meal replacement shake? Please suggest yummy ones. I've tried some before that are just awful and are a total waste of money. I want to be able to drink it and enjoy it. Thanks for advice ahead of time ☺️
I have tried tons of them and my personal favorite is Vegan Smart Vanilla to which you can add berries or other fruits.0
Thanks! I'll look it up.0
It is about something quick in the morning. I'm not a fan of meal replacement shakes but I feel it's better than nothing. I just want to find one that actually tastes good.0
Thanks I'll look into the oats0
I would have picked Greek yogurt mixed with nut butter and some honey or maple syrup.0
Also remember it is not required you eat breakfast- If you're not yet hungry, no need to force feed.
That said, one of the easiest things I've found is to pre-make breakfast sandwhiches (english muffin, egg, protein of choice, cheese, etc) and freeze them. All you'll have to do in the morning is microwave.
I like the Vega shakes, they're vegan though so a bit thinner then whey shakes. I like the chocolate one with almond or coconut milk.0
I make my own shakes with chocolate protein almond milk, bananas, and a little bit of almond butter. Filling, low cal if you use the right products, high protein!0

So not a morning person myself..........
Along the same lines.... I like to make a Greek yogurt "parfait" with yogurt, Kashi GoLean, and chopped nuts.
I measure out the dry ingredients at night (just like packing my lunch) and place them in a zip-lock baggie. At work I just stir together. Crunchy, creamy, protein, fiber & fat.0
