Nutritious Chocolate Shake

Nutritious Chocolate Shake

(Stabilized P3)

1/3 cup coconut milk & 2/3 cup water OR 1 cup almond milk
1 scoop protein
1 T. flaxseed meal
1 T. flaxseed oil
1 T. peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate greens OR 1 T. carob powder
1/2 banana (previously sliced and frozen)
few drops SteviaBlend in blender or Magic Bullet

Bananas have amazing nutrients that have been scientifically proven to help with depression. They contain tryptophan and phenylalanine, which are essential for the brain to produce serotonin and dopamine transmitters that stimulate physical and mental activity and act as natural antidepressants. Dates, almonds, peanuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds also contain tryptophan. Bananas are a bit more starchy so that is why I don’t recommend them while you are working on stabilizing your weight. I don’t have more than one a day, and no bananas during detox, they are low water fruits and can be constipating.

    Jay Robb or Show Me The Whey are both good options and no hidden sugars.

    I am having the most difficult time choosing a protein powder that is suitable for p3.  I know about Jay Robb’s (sweetened with Stevia) but it is so expensive.  I was told that Biochem and Designer were sweetened with stevia as well.  I am still confused.  I don’t know what kind to get.  I don’t know what “isolate” means.  Is there a protein that you can get that isn’t sweetened at all that can be used to make a decent tasting protein shake?  I NEED HELP, Please!!!!!!  Thanks

      Can you tell me what the “isolate” is with? Does it say soy protein isolate? Many respected doctors and nutritionists, including Dr. Andrew Weil, all agree that certain derivatives of soy, including soy protein isolates, should be avoided.

      go to Dr Mercolas site and listen to what he says about the whey protein shakes.  Sometimes it pays to buy what is good for you.  I dont think his there are anymore expensive than any of the others.  They are all high.
