My coworker friend, Rob Neff, has been following the blog and as you can see from his picture, he's a active athletic person. He loves to race his bike outdoors in the mud! And biking in the mud takes a lot of energy! He shared this shake recipe with me for all of you to try. I really love apple pie so I can't wait to try it myself!
Apple Pie Shake
Try this before your workout to give you the stamina to challenge yourself.
- 2 cups water
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1/3 cup organic canned apple pie filling
- 3 tbs crumbled whole wheat graham crackers
Nutrition: 245 calories, 21.5g protein, 37g carbs, 1.5g fat
Rob recommends this shake for fast-digesting protein and branched-chain amino acids found in whey to fuel your body for your workout and increase blood flow to your muscles to workout longer. The shake also has slow-digesting carbs (apple pie filling and crackers) for long-lasting energy, which prevents insulin level spikes. Insulin spikes actually slow the fat burning process.
This shake is a great option for you and in his words "super yummy!" Give it a try and tell us what you think.
