Sometimes, you need a bigger-than-normal lunch. Maybe you are hitting the gym before you go home and won’t be eating for several hours. Maybe work means you won’t eat your evening meal until late. When this happens to me, this is my go-to meal replacement shake. Not only is it DELICIOUS, it’s also got plenty of protein, slow releasing carbs and fiber to keep me feeling full until I get home. This is a thick shake so feel free to add more water if you want to make it lighter.
1 scoop IdealShake® Meal Replacement Shake – vanilla flavored
1 ½ cups water
1 small apple – peeled and diced
½ cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon raw honey
Cinnamon powder to taste
Pour the water into your blender and add the oatmeal. Blend on low for 30 seconds. Then add all the other ingredients. Blend on low and then high for 30 seconds. (my favorite blenders for shakes and smoothies here) Add more water if you want a less thick shake consistency. Sprinkle with more cinnamon if needed.

I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast. It’s filling but yet has only 4gm protein. How may grams of protein does a serving (red container) contain? I’m guessing I need to add a more hearty protein to my breakfast.
