Blueberries are very high in antioxidants and are great in smoothies.
Part of the ‘Nutrition Prescription’ by my anti-aging doctor is to increase the protein component in the mornings. I now add 30 grams of protein (whey ion-exchange) to my breakfast smoothie which I drink while taking my supplements. If I’m out of whey, I substitute with a large egg white omelette. I’ll also have a protein shake immediately after heavy exercise.
What is Whey Protein Isolate?
It is the thin, watery part of milk which contains 1% whey peptides and is also the finest and highest quality proteins known in the world. Whey is the highest biological value (BV) out of all protein and contains 90% pure protein which isn’t damaged by heat, thus preserving the integrity of each protein fraction.
What does it do?
WPI is a convenient, soluble, non-contaminated source of high quality protein.
Intake of liquid protein improves absorption into the bloodstream compared to solid tissue protein.
Supports the body’s immune system and gastro-intestinal health.
Supplies the building blocks for over 1 million different human proteins (making it a complete source of protein)
Stimulates the release of CCK (the “I’m full hormones”) which modifies the appetite.
Raises metabolic rate through dietary-induced thermogenesis.
I love my protein shake routine in the morning. I add blueberries, almond milk, and a scoop of yogurt – so delicious!
My ‘whey morning routine’ will also lower my cholesterol levels, increase mineral absorption, and keep my teeth and bones strong. I know this has helped me decrease my body fat, increase my lean muscle mass and boosted my immune system.
