Well, the Avengers just hit the theaters, and I must say I enjoyed it. In honor of Earths Mightiest Hero’s, I offer the SUPER SMOOTHIE!

This thing is packed with goodness and is a delicious meal replacement.

Old School Super Shake!

Milk and eggs have been on the menu for humans for quite some time now. For years old school bodybuilders and strength athletes have based their nutrition programs around these two basic foods. Although most folks think of milk and eggs as being only protein foods, this is not the case. Both milk and eggs are rich sources of fat-soluble nutrients and are loaded with high quality nutrition.

These days it seems that people have forgotten about these two super foods. I know people who spend thousands of dollars on the latest supplements and rarely eat any real food.

In the hopes of reversing that trend and steering people back towards eating whole, fresh foods, here is a recipe for a classic old-school SUPER SHAKE!

Raw Milk 2 cup/16oz; Calories: 320, Total Fat: 18g, Carbs: 24g, Protein: 18g

Raw Egg 3 Large (150g); Calories: 213, Total Fat: 15g, Carbs: 3g, Protein: 21g

Raw Honey 2 tbsp. (42g); Calories: 140, Total Fat: 0g, Carbs: 34g, Protein: 0g

Calories: 671 Total fat: 33g, Carbs: 61g, Protein: 39g

Add all the ingredients into a blender and mix for about 30 seconds. You can drink this as a meal or store it in the fridge and drink a glass every couple of hours. It will provide a lot of energy, fat-soluble nutrients and it’s delicious!

Try incorporating a few of these old-school super shakes into your weekly Personal Eating Plan and see what happens. You may find that you don’t need all those super pills and powders any more.
