    AM smoothy during a low carb Cut?


    Was thinking of replacing the frozen fruit in my protein / ice blend with frozen veggies. Do you think I might gag? Do you think this is an effective idea? Got any ideas?

    Use pumpkin (puree is easiest I enjoy it from the can) a lot of great recipes around for those shakes, add either pumpkin or vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice for a basic one.

    Low carb, high fibre and nutrient dense.

    Tried a few green smoothies, never got a taste I enjoyed.

    Pumpkin is pretty tasty. Also. . .believe it or not, frozen broccoli (buy chopped broc), when blended isn't too bad.

    Interesting idea. Vege shakes and I do not agree but if you can stomach it, then the more power to you

    Well I looked in the freezer this AM and all I found was a bag of lima beans - threw that in with chocolate protein powder and was really surprised how great it tasted! And how much better I felt throughout the morning than from frozen fruit and protein powder. Will be getting the pumpkin and broc next visit to the grocery store and I think a bunch of different beans! Thanks for the suggestions Guys! I think this change will really have a positive effect on training and life in general....Cut or not, I think this is the going to be the way to go....
