If I Could Just Give Up Eating…

I’m off in search of the perfect meal replacement shake. Something I can yank out of the refrigerator for 5 am writing, and not feel bad, if I wind up calling that my whole breakfast.

I was doing Soylent for a while, but I’m backing off the soy.  I’m not so sure it’s as good for me as it could be. So, if anybody knows of a replacement that is soy-free, and reasonably nutritious…

This is where my day falls apart. The breakfast concept. The thing where I wake up with a finite amount of time to do my own work on a full tank, and I don’t want to spend any of it frying eggs or brewing coffee.

And obviously, skipping breakfast is not a long-term solution.

If I could just hook myself up to an IV and type for an hour or so while it infuses my blood with nutrients and energy, I would.

Do doctors put caffeine in IV solution?

    Chocolate almond milk with some Greens + Proteins from GenuineHealth tastes really good. It is my favorite!

    I generally have a smoothie. I’m searching for a protein powder than doesn’t overwhelm me with fake vanilla flavor or taste like chalk. Fingers crossed. Good luck on your quest.

      I’ve had good luck with the ones that taste like coffee. The last vanilla version I had barely went down.

    Make a double batch (or more) of smoothies and freeze them in mason jars. Just be sure to not screw the lids down too tight, they do expand a little. Take one out the night before and let it defrost in the fridge. Also, you might want to try Designer Whey Protein powder. I get the Purely Unflavored version. No odd flavors to mess up the flavors of the fruits and veggies and lower carbs too.
