The second season of Bravo's Workout has begun and if you're a reality tv junkie like I am, I'm sure you watch it as well. Last week's episode (or the one prior, not really sure), Jackie Warner introduced her new Sky Lab program and picked several clients to participate. Each individual had their own set of fitness goals and Jackie set them up with the trainers she felt each person would work best with. Along with the personal training, we also got a glimpse into the type of diet she wanted her clients on.
She recruited her chef/trainer Jesse to teach the clients how to cook healthier. In one episode, Jackie had everyone blend up a protein shake that she says she drinks every morning. Like any fitness role model in the public eye, a lot of people like to eat and train the way the professionals do. I hunted down the recipe and found it posted on a forum. Here it is quoted below:
Due to the recipe being pulled from the forum I mentioned above, I am also removing the quoted version below. However, I will leave the list of ingredients posted that were mentioned on the show. The amounts to take for each should be on their labels. The frozen fruit I'm sure is for taste and adding the thick, smoothie like texture to the shake.
Whey protein powder
Mega green powder
Liquid amino acids
Flax seed oil
It sounds easy enough to make and I'm curious myself to try it out. I already take 1 tbsp. of flaxseed oil per day so if I can fit it into a good protein shake even better. If anyone tries it out, let me know how you like it.
Update: I've started drinking Shakeology® because it contains all of the above and more. No need to waste time buying everything separately! Its 70 ingredients are derived from whole food sources—all natural foods that still maintain the vitamins, minerals, and other fiber often stripped from highly processed foods and other shakes on the market.
