    If you like it and its getting you the calories its good, ingredients seem fine (may not need PB unless its for taste).

    I’d replace flax seeds with chia seeds. Wish that was a plug but MyoPures sold out till November 🙁 Or flax seed oil with another type of oil.

    Frozen berries better if mixed. There’s a study floating around showing that variety is the big thing for health/anti-oxidant benefits.

    You might also like to alternate banana with oranges and/or pineapple. I like fresh pineapple for vit c and digestive enzymes.

    Mmmmmmmmmmm pineapple, good idea. What was this study doc? Would be interested in checking it out.

    Now if only I had a filing system. Couldn’t find it either on pubmed but let me know if you do.

    The conclusion as I recall was that variety was more important than number of serves.

    added chia seeds and extra virgin olive oil also into my breakie shake! 🙂

    covers all the bases

    How come people just don’t eat instead of worrying about shakes for 1st meal (I hate the term breakfast)?

    Shakes should be reserved for times when running late for work or forgot to buy food.

    Don’t know but maybe he just doesn’t give himself enough time in the mornings, I think that is most peoples problem.

    Make time.

    I often work 10-12 hrs per day and once you including 1.5hrs driving to from work it can be up to 13.5 to 14hrs a day.

    Make time, not excuses.
