    Hey guys, do you have any ideas for good breakfast shakes that I could take on the go? Something that holds until lunch time.

    I know there are recipes that includes an egg mixed with other stuff, was curious to hear your ideas and past experiments on the subject icon_smile.gif

    add 8 oz firm tofu with 2C of any liquid in a blender to thicken. What you do beyond that point i your own recipe. Maybe flavor with lemon crystal lite.

    Interesting, not too much of a tofu fan but might give it a shot.

    I tried a recipe of oat-banana-milk-yogurt-honey-cinnamon. Was delicious!

    I freeze peeled bananas, blueberries, and mango slices.

    Blend in mixer:

    - 8 oz Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut or Almond Milk
    - 1/2 frozen banana
    - 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
    - 3 slices frozen mango
    -1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
    - 1 tablespoon honey
    - 1 scoop Vanilla protein powder

    That sounds great, I don't use protein powder anymore though. I 'm gonna try to find the recipe I had that included eggs, was pretty good.

    If the eggs aren't pasteurized I would worry about salmonella.

    It's a hassle but I suspect it's better if the oats are cooked. I cook my oats with water or milk, then freeze it in 40 gram gobs, wrapped in plastic wrap and then in a ziplock bag. Then I also have to remember to take one out of the freezer and move it down to the fridge the day before, otherwise I'll need to defrost it in the microwave.

    This is my current pre-run smoothie. The nuts and stuff after them are optional. I'm currently using 2 mandarin oranges instead of the banana; they're going for a song at my grocery store.

    50 grams frozen juice concentrate
    1/2 cup coconut milk, evaporated milk, or yogurt
    1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
    1 tablespoon quinoa bran
    2 tablespoons dried unsweetened coconut
    1/4 teaspoon psyllium husk
    Pinch of salt
    40 grams cooked oatmeal
    2 dates
    2 prunes
    2 apricots
    1 banana
    Dole fruit cup
    10 grams nuts
    10 grams tamarind
    10 grams candied ginger
    2 teaspoons cranberry dressing
    frozen fruit

    Looks like Lumpyoatmeal has it down if you are looking for something to consume.

    To me, Breakfast Shakes is what I get when i have too many Evening Manhattans.

    haha yeah that last one seemed pretty filling. I only tried one for now and got hungry by 11 am. But the whole point was to find something low on preparation haha.

    All this is good though, new ideas to try out, keep'em coming!
