* 10 oz of pure coconut water. I really like the one that I found at Whole Foods (Amy & Brian Natural Coconut juice with pulp), since it gives a richer and sweeter taste. * One scoop (30 g) of Bioplex pure egg white powder * Some frozen blueberries (maybe 2 tablespoons) * Small dash of cinnamon, which helps the flavor and has health benefits too (aids blood sugar control, reduces cholesterol, and improves weight loss). * Drink about 1 hour before your workout
Donít mix it up the way you normally would do with a typical protein powder mix in a shaker cup. I ended up with a big frothy mess that was almost impossible to drink. Great for waffles. Bad for drinking. Fewer, gentle shakes is the trick or have the patience to mix with a spoon or whisk.

Start your day with a protein-fiber-veggie-fruit smoothie = a great start to healthy eating the rest of the day. It's quick, healthy, and you can drink on the go if you have to. Tip: pre-measure fruits-veggies ahead of time and put in baggies.
My recipe: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1068001
I've never been a cook, but I've decided it's necessary for my lifestyle change. To get started I've focused on finding recipes with easy ingredients - healthier pre-made sauces or crusts, canned products, and pre-sliced items such as onions from the grocery store. Having these ready-to-use items has helped minimize my fear of the kitchen!
