If you are strength training or body building, you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you are a morning person and train in the early AM, this concoction will get your muscles fed and covers a lot of your nutrient needs. Try it at lunch if you work out in the afternoon.
A blender – Get one that is heavy duty because health conscious strength trainers and body builders are always mixing something up. A quality blender lasts longer and ensures more consistent and uniform blending.
Honey – This fast digesting carb is a perfect pre or post workout food. It’s rich in antioxidants and does not spike your insulin levels very much.
Papaya – This is a potassium rich fruit that aids in the digestion of protein. It also contains a lot of vitamin C.
Wheat Germ – A concentrated source of vitamins and minerals – from niacin to zinc. This high protein source contains fiber and good fat.
Oatmeal – High in fiber, this grain helps to regulate your insulin level as it digests quickly. Oats are rich in vitamins and minerals as well as protein.
Whey Protein – An ideal source of branched chain amino acids for bodybuilding and an antioxidant.
Figs – Rich in antioxidants and fast absorbing carbs.
Milk – For protein, calcium, and testosterone regulation.
Flax seed – like salmon, flax seed provides omega-3 fatty acids to lower triglyceride levels and regulate blood pressure.
The quantity will depend on your size, shape and purpose. I make about a two cup serving for myself and one cup serving for my wife as a breakfast drink. If I were bulking up right now, I would double that. If you are in a mass building phase of your workout, use whole milk for greater testosterone production. Substitute bananas if you can’t find papayas. You can go ahead and mix the ingredients to taste.
This drink is perfect for post workouts as well as meal replacements because it has your essential three muscle building components; protein, carbs and fats.
