Jujimufu low carb shake story,
This year has been crazy for me. Some mornings I’m lucky enough to sleep in until 9 am, other mornings I get up to pee at 2 am and then realize how many things I have got going on and can’t get myself to sleep again. During those mornings, I don’t start with breakfast, instead I double down on my coffee and get to work on editing videos, making websites, hiking e-mail mountain, and planning my training. I was supposed to be asleep, so why would I eat early? So I don’t eat these mornings… except, there is often a problem.
I can get hungry! So I often try to work through the hunger until it’s my normal morning feeding time, but usually what happens is I get so hungry I can’t work anymore. Since most of my morning work involves me sitting (or standing at a standing desk!) I don’t think this is the best time to eat carbohydrate dense foods. You see, carbs are tricky little bastards, they behave best when you consume them nearest your most active times of day. I noticed that if I ate a traditional power breakfast on these mornings, such as a hearty oatmeal, egg scramble, meat, and fresh vegetable juice, I’d interrupt my work flow with this cooking and cleanup, and then I’d have trouble getting back into the groove. I’d get sleepy soon after eating too. Should I go back to sleep then since I’m up extra early? Tried it many times and just laid in bed frustrated. These were bad times.
Then I had the idea to create myself a very low carb – protein shake for these mornings.
- 8 oz unsweetened almond milk
- 2 TBSP organic heavy whipping cream
- 1 small avocado
- 2 raw whole eggs
- 6 ice cubes
- 1 giant spoon of sunflower seed butter
- 1 scoop of hydropump whey
- 2 TBSP of cocoa powder
It takes no time to make, so if I get hungry I can whip it up and slam it down within 5 minutes. And after drinking it I always perk up and feel more motivated to work. It also helps me save my carb allowance for later in the day when I’ll need them more. I do use Hydropump whey with this shake, for the reasons listed in the product description at the top of this page. This whole strategy has helped me out a ton this year in solving one of the biggest bottlenecks I had when balancing my fitness business creation and my actual health and fitness itself. If my situation at all resonates with you, then try what I’m doing.
