Protein Shake with ACV

Protein Shake

P3 and P4 Protein Shake

1 scoop of Protein Powder, I use Jay Robb
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar or more to taste
1/4 cup Blueberries (substitute any fruit on the list)
Blend the above ingredients together, I use the Magic Bullet.

It is Outrageously delicious!

25 grams protein per serving!

Easy to mix!

Made with Stevia!

Made with rBGH-free whey protein It contains no sugar at all.

Sometimes I don’t feel like making a meal, so I turn to my Whey Protein Isolate powder.  The one that I absolutely love is Jay Robb Vanilla.  It is recommended on P3 and P4 that we consume about 60-75 grams of protein.

PROTEIN need not be watched carefully, while dairy and higher carbohydrate fruits and vegetables should be watched very carefully.  Unless an adequate amount of protein is eaten as soon as the Phase 2 treatment is over, protein deficiency is bound to develop, and this inevitably causes the marked retention of water known as hunger-edema. A protein deficient diet makes the body retain water.

BEWARE of most protein powders on the market! Many of these formulas contain cheaper proteins, as well as tons of SUGAR, and refined carbohydrates in the form of: FRUCTOSE, GLUCOSE, GLUCOSE POLYMERS, MALTODEXTRIN as well as fake sugars chemically developed such as ASPARTAME, SUCRALOSE, ACESULFAME-K, and POLYDEXTROSE just to name a few.

    Sounds a bit odd with ACV but I'm going to try it! ACV is so good for us and it's a good way to get it down 🙂

    You can't even taste it, that is why its so great to put it in there.. 🙂 You can put MCT oil in it too.. I forgot to add that, will edit it 🙂 another option that I seen also was to add your favorite fiber to it, I don't use it. But a good way to get all of your needs in! 🙂

    Yum! I added MCT oil and a little Greek yogurt. Awesome. Never would of thought about ACV in a shake.

      If there is anyway to get in ACV we should all take advantage of it!

    I purchased the Jay Robb but cannot begin to continue to use it as it is outrageously unaffordable – while it tastes fine, it’s just not realistic to us daily for those of us on average incomes – especially with three of us using it. I found 100% Whey from Cytosport (makers of muscle milk) at Costco – it is 80% concentrated and 20% isolated whey protein.  It does have 1g of sugar from sucralose.  I am in P3 wk 3 stabilized and seem to be doing fine with it for 2 wks. now.  With 27 g protein, 6g BCAA’s and 12g of EAA’s – isn’t it just as beneficial as the Jay Robb with such a low sucralose content?  What is the difference between isolate and concentrated whey?  I notice that th Jay Robb is 100% isolate.  Of course I would prefer one with stevia, but considering the cost is about $.39 p/oz. vs. $1.85 p/oz. for Jay Robb, I just can’t justify the cost.  Also, with such a low sucralose content, is it that negatively affecting?

    Lastly, is there a list somewhere for GOOD sugar substitutes?  I have all of the “stay away” from list, but not many good subs outside of stevia and am not familiar with many such as rapadura talked about in the candied nuts recipe.

      concentrated whey that has the water
      removed from it, leaving a dry powder. It does absorb better into our system, so it’s best to have it listed first if it’s in the ingredients. Protein isolates have lower levels of
      carbohydrates and fat and are almost exclusively pure protein. Sucralose – is it an added ingredient, or found within added fruits? If it’s there because there is fruit in the powder, it’s fine, if it’s an added chemical sugar, I’d not be as excited about it. Rapadura is whole cane sugar. Here is one I use one is not as good, but okay

    jay robb’s whey or eggs???

    • Shawna Culp on July 23, 2012 at 2:02 pm

      Whey is preferred but those who have issues with whey use egg but there are many complaints of the taste of it
