If any of you check in on my “other blog,” you’ll know that last week Jeremy and I started the P90X workout and nutrition plan. The nutrition plan is broken down into a few different phases, which vary depending on what part of the workout your in or your desired results. We are currently in Phase I, which is a high protein/low carb eating plan. Sadly…low carb means no cookies, cakes, candies or Sara’s Sweets! Bummer, right?
I know you’re probably thinking, “Sara, what are you going to blog about if you can’t eat delicious treats?!” No need to worry, my friends. I’ve got a few “sweet” recipes saved up to blog about and I thoroughly plan on continuing to bake treats for my friends/co-workers, so I’ll have plenty to blog about! Plus, I’ll have some delicious new P90X recipes to share.
The first recipe has become a favorite breakfast of ours and it is the protein shake. It’s such an easy and quick breakfast, plus it’s surprisingly very filling (hello, protein)! We bought chocolate flavor protein powder and we used strawberries as the “berry,” which resulted in a delicious, strawberry, bananay, chocolate shake. Yum!
I highly recommend this delicious shake if you’re looking for a filling, quick and easy breakfast. And of course, it’s nutritious!
All the protein shake, just for me?
