Very Veggie Breakfast Shake

wpid-IMG_20130811_074033.jpgHere’s another breakfast and/or recovery shake that’s 4HB/Slow Carb Diet compliant (as far as the ingredients go anyway — on 4HB drinking calories isn’t encouraged).

You’re going to say this sounds disgusting.  But if you like tomato-based veggie juices you’ll like this one.  I promise!

In your blender or Magic Bullet, put the following and blend until the spinach liquifies and the mix is smooth:

  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 cup Knudsen Organic Very Veggie Juice
  • 2 cups raw organic spinach
  • 2 raw eggs (wash your eggs with soap and water first)
  • a dash of hot sauce (if desired)

Peanut Butter Cup Low Carb Shake

imageHere’s a shake that you can enjoy after a workout or anytime.  It’s low carb and delicious (to me anyway).

Just put everything in your blender or Magic Bullet and voila:

  • 2 raw free range eggs
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 stevia packets
  • 1/2 cup ice

WARNING: This recipe contains raw eggs. I’ve regularly eaten raw eggs for years with no problem, and contend that if you wash the shells with soap and water before you crack them you’re fine (a 2002 study showed that only 1 in 30,000 eggs was contaminated, and most of those positives were for contamination outside of the shell).  Others disagree.  Eat raw eggs at your own risk.
