On the days I really dont want eggs for breakfast (or dont have enough time to make them), I make one of these shakes in my Magic Bullet and drink it in the car on the way to work. Grab some snackable veggies (like cucumber slices) and you've got your breakfast!
1/2 cup cottage cheese 1/2 cup milk 1 tbsp cocoa powder 2 packets splenda (or whatever other sweetener you prefer) 1/2 tsp vanilla ice cubs (i use 5)
Toss everything into a blender and blend until its smooth. You cant even tell there is cottage cheese in here, it tastes great!
I got this recipe from a friend on another forum a couple of years ago. It's very versatile:
Protein/Flax "Bowl Muffin"
1 heaping tbsp flaxmeal 1 heaping tbsp chocolate protein powder 1 egg 1/2 tsp baking powder 2 tbsp DaVinci sugar-free flavored sryup (any flavor) (Can add berries or nuts too if you want.)
Mix all of this together in a small microwavable bowl and cook on high for 1 minute 30 seconds.
You may need to experiment with were the amounts of the Da Vinci syrup; also cooking time will depend on your microwave. If it's overcooked it becomes too dry.
I cut these in half and toast like an English muffin.
1) MY FAVORITE FOR BREAKFAST - use plain or vanilla protein powder instead of chocolate, Sugar-Free maple (pancake) syrup instead of DaVinci, and add some cinnamon.
2) For a savory muffin instead of sweet, use plain protein powder, extra virgin olive oil instead of syrup, and add seasonings like pepper, herbs and garlic powder. These are good to use as a "bun" for burgers or sandwiches, and I've even used them as the base for a "pizza" type thing.
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
