PORTION SIZES 🍼
Who chucks everything in their blender without knowing how much is actually in there? 🙋🏼
I absolutely love shakes. For breakfast, postworkout, before bed... but it is so easy to get carried away & end up drinking 400 calories + each time. Because you don't have it all on a plate, it's not as easy to actually see what you're eating 🍽
Here's just an example with me favourite, very simple shake:
• Half a naaaana 🍌
• 20g scoop @womensbest cookies & cream whey protein
• 10g protein crème
• 15g oats
• 15g peanut butter
• Water • alllll the ice
That is the perfect amount for me post workout. Apart from breakfast, I never replace my meals with a shake. I normally add some spinach & kale to my breakfast smoothie 🌱
The right shake is double all the quantities, which is super easy to do when you're just throwing it all in but depending on your goals, it may be too much for you.
If you love shakes, like me & you think you're being 'a health goddess' filling them up with everything healthy from your kitchen... next time you go to make it, lay everything on a plate before it goes in. Then you can actually physically see what you're eating & if it's actually more than your average meal.
I've tried to convince myself for years that 'liquid calories don't count' but unfortunately they do! 🙄
