Milkshakes For Breakfast

This smoothie thing is getting much better! I made an amazing smoothie this morning that tasted just like a milkshake. I know I said I’d give you my review of that new protein powder I’m trying out, so here’s my official review. It’s awesome!

Here are the ingredients in the protein powder.

Here’s my smoothie recipe from this morning.

Strawberry Vanilla Milkshake Smoothie

1 serving of Ka’Chava vanilla protein powder
1-2 cups of ice
1 cup spinach
1 and 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
6 or 7 frozen strawberries
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

The texture of the protein powder was just a tad bit chalky but with the great milkshake taste, it seemed to work together. I have one more sample packet to try, the chocolate, and I’ll try that one soon and give my review. Either way, I’m pretty sure I’ll end up purchasing the protein powder if I can afford it since it tastes so good!

As for the rest of the day, it was great! I stayed on track all day. Yes, there were times I was hungry. But I wasn’t starving. I ended up adding in another snack that is after lunch and before dinner.

Here’s a sample of my food schedule:

7:15-Breakfast–smoothie
9:15-Snack–hummus with pretzels
12:00-Lunch–baked chicken, roasted carrots, peas, green beans, 2 Oreos
2:45-Snack–pretzels, strawberries
5:30-Dinner–baked chicken, healthy carb, veggies

At the end of the day, I feel full enough. I’m not starving. I’m satisfied I guess would be the word. It reminds me of this Leeann Womak song where she sings, “Get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger.” I always took those lyrics literally. Anyways, that’s how I’m feeling at the end of the day. And I’m happy with that. 🙂
