Recommended : Frozen Breakfast Blend

Getting my husband to "eat healthy" is sort of like training a child. One of the hardest things I've tackled so far is
finding a way to boost his breakfast protein intake - especially since he's not
a real breakfast-eater, anyway.

Anybody familiar with a drink called an Orange Julius? Well, we lucked into a similar, protein-packed breakfast version that DH tosses back like no tomorrow.

Here's the recipe:

1 envelope Trim Advantage Sugar-Free Drink Mix /
Tropical Orange Flavor

1 scoop Nutralite Protein Powder
8 oz. water
6-8 ice cubes
Blend until ice cubes are totally mushed - like a frozen margarita!

If you drink the whole thing by yourself, here's what you get:
* 25 whoppin' grams of protein!
* Balanced amounts of nine essential and 11 non-essential
amino acids
* 35% of the daily value for 24 essential vitamins and minerals. including 100 mg of calcium
* No sugar, no fat, no cholesterol
* Only 155 calories

Of course, if you do as we do and split the drink, you still get half the amounts listed above. What a great way to start the day!

Share the love, Baby.

That's a good idea.

Sounds yummy. I know what you mean about your husband. Mine is the same, he won't eat breakfast, but he can put away a Homer Simpson or Dagwood sized sandwich for lunch with no problems.
