Protein Shake Formula
When building a protein shake for breakfast and lunch, you can choose nut milk, non-fat Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, kefir, or silken tofu as your base, add seeds, avocado, or protein next, then add half a cup of fresh or frozen fruit, and then top it off with two cups of vegetables. Each smoothie should be around 200 calories, 20 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat, and 3.5 grams of fiber.
