Your Protein Shake Is Not A Meal Replacement ShakeYes... your meal replacement drink does contain copious amounts of protein. Still it is not the same thing as a protein shake. When you want a fast meal on the go, protein shakes may help in a pinch, but they are designed for recovery, not meal replacement. When I see women and men using a shake that is only 70 - 150 calories as a meal... I shudder. Think of your protein shake as a nutritional supplement that help increase the amount of protein in your daily diet. If you desire, it can be a part of a healthy meal replacement program, just not alone.
So how do you make a healthy meal replacement shake?
If you have a hormonal imbalance issues like myself, I add in a capsule of maca powder (capsules keep the potency in tact better than buying a bag of powdered maca) and just enjoy it! If you like it thicker, add in ice or make your fruit frozen.
