While wouldn't classify myself as Paleo, I've been on a health and fitness journey for the last two years to be the healthiest and most fit I have ever been, prior to my 40th birthday coming up in June 2022. I have swapped 10 pounds of fat for 10 pounds of muscle, overhauled my diet to mostly eliminate sugar, processed crap and common allergens, track my macros religiously, have had extensive hormone and nutrient blood testing done, have my supplement game completely dialed in and sleep like a champ. Over the last 2 years I have tried all the best protein powders on the market from collagen to plant sources only to the highest quality grass fed whey isolates. My criteria is that they're clean, high quality and taste good. I've found some pretty great ones, but whey doesn't quite agree with me and plant based formulas don't have quite the amino acid profile I want from a protein source.
This formula from Amy Meyers is not only ideal from a nutrient and clean ingredient profile, but is THE MOST DELICIOUS SHAKE I have ever tried, HANDS DOWN!!! I was expecting it to taste gross considering the simple ingredient list, but it is anything but. My mind was BLOWN with that first drink!
Here is my daily lunch shake recipe (230 cal 8.2g net carbs 6.5g fat, 31.3g protein)
1 scoop of this powder (double chocolate)
1.5 C organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk
35g organic fresh baby spinach leaves that I de-stem, weigh and then freeze
1/3 C Two Good brand plain or vanilla Greek yogurt…
