Breakfast Pudding

Lately I've been enjoying (and benefiting from) a rather unusual breakfast. Here's how I make it:

I put all of the following into a blending cup:

+ cold water

+ a few ounces of shredded, organic coconut

+ a scoop of organic, sprouted flax seed meal

+ 2 - 3 tablespoons of organic (unsweetened) peanut butter

+ 1 scoop of natural vanilla egg white protein (MRM brand)

+ 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Green SuperFood powder

+ a healthy dash of Also Salt (a potassium-based salt substitute)

+ a few mini-scoops of 100% pure stevia powder

I use an immersion blender to combine the ingredients until they reach a thick, pudding like texture. I stumbled upon this one day while *trying* to make an all-in-one protein shake.

I like the taste and the sensation of eating something, rather than drinking it. I'm also able to pack more into the pudding - less liquid and more bulk.

Anyhow, I thought I'd pass this along in case any of you are feeling bored with the typical protein shake routine. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

What is the superfood stuff?? Sounds very interesting... I like some "bulk" to my shakes sometimes... I like having to chew the coconut a little.

Angie,

It's basically a really good tasting (but LC) source of "superfood" extracts like fruits and vegetables. It also contains some other "health foody" ingredients like spirulina (a blue-green algae) and wheat grass - which are abundant sources of antioxidants and nutrients that tend to support good health.

This particular product also contains an organic cocoa extract ... which makes it tastes good (much, much better than most products of this kind) and healthier too - because real chocolate is actually quite healthy.

Here's a review I did on this product several months ago:

Hi Harry,
I was just wandering if the sprouted flax is a good source of omega 3? I read about grinding fresh flax for omega 3, but this would be much easier :-)
I also wanted to ask if you have an iherb number? I've been reading your blog for quite a while and really enjoyed it (borrowed lots of recipes and ideas), and thought I could give something back whenever I order from iherb.
Cheers, Steve.

Steve,

The sprouted flax does contain omega-3 fatty acids. Each serving provides about 3.6 grams of alpha-linolenic acid.

Thanks for offering to use my IHerb number when ordering. The only # I'm aware of is my "IHerb Rewards" referral code, which is: FAN823

I'm happy to know some of my ideas and recipes are being used out there! :-)
