Why have a breakfast shake?

The best way to have a productive day is to begin it with a productive morning.  The best way to have a productive morning is to begin it with a morning routine that works well for you.

That morning routine should include a good breakfast.

A good breakfast should be quick and easy to prepare as well as nutritious and delicious.

Here’s a recipe for a breakfast protein shake that I’ve been using for the last few months.  Why not try it to determine if it also will work well for you?



¾ cup water [adjust for your favored consistency]

¾ cup unsweetened, unflavored or vanilla coconut milk

1 ½ to 2 scoops unflavored or vanilla whey protein isolates powder

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

½ teaspoon coconut extract

¼ cup organic berries [frozen are available year-round]

4 ice cubes

1 or 2 raw, organic chicken eggs




Put all the ingredients into the blender and blend until the ice cubes stop making noise.  Drink immediately.  Enjoy!

You may omit the eggs.

Use whatever kind of berries you like – blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and so on.  Using a variety of different kinds of berries will yield a variety of different shake flavors.

That should keep you going strong for about 5 hours.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to consult your personal physician or other professional health care provider before making significant changes to your eating or exercising rituals.
