    A good morning protein blend (please recommend)


    I don't have time to make a whole food breakfast in the mornings, and after I leave the house I am sometimes not able to eat for up to 3 or 4 hours after.

    What is a good protein blend that I can chug quickly on the way out of the door? I use ON whey right now but I am hungry soon after. I might want to use this for pre-bed at times also. Not looking for mrp as such, just protein blend.

    what if you mix some things in with your ON shakes.. One of my favorites is mixing whey protein, ground oats, natty PB, a banana, and 2 eggs in, blend and you got a very filling shake that is good on the go.

    It's a good idea but I am looking for fast/med/slow release protein blend. I have looked at a few but they are pricey and I am sure quality varies, so I want to make sure I don't buy ****e ;o)

    mix it with an egg and milk.


    I mix these in a magic bullet blender every morning, it tastes great and is fast:
    whey, egg, oats, milk, miracle greens, blueberries, and cinnamon

    Another good idea, but again, I am looking for quality protein blend recommendation. Also, I live in Kuwait and eggs are scarce (bird flu - and I wouldn't want to be eating them raw, or at all!). Unless people think that whey in milk is good enough for sustained release? I might use it at bedtime too. I know milk is casein but smaller amounts, right?

    Just add in whey, milk, and olive oil. The oil will help slow the digestion of the whey so you won't be starving within an hour.

    The fats in the PB and the fibre in the oats will slow the release down, if added some eggs and milk it would have everything you need.

    If not can you source Micellar Casein? I know ON do it. Just mix whey and Micellar with some oats and PB!

    Are you wanting a solo protein blend(MRP) or are you wanting something to fill you up with protein?

    Casein as a protein blend is pretty much garbage. Sure it is isn't absorbed as quickly as whey protein, but the bioavailability of it is garbage compared to whey. Stick with a blend of just adding milk with your regular whey shakes.

    I'd say two scoops of syntha would be great upon awakening...i used it for quite some time and loved it, i was actually looking to add some size and ended up cutting up and gaining muscle at the same time. I love the ratios too, 22 protein, 6 fat, 15 carbs per scoop...two scoops is excellent for PWO.

    Can you elaborate on that one? You say don't use casein but add milk, the protein in which is 80% casein. Am I missing something?

    Yes, a protein blend with as little carbs as possible. Ultra peptide looks ideal but it's expensive.

    for a blend try this http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/l...y-20-pack.html
    it is a MRP and low carb.
    If you want a meal that is easily mixed this is it.
    I personally use On Pro-Complex, Oats, a Banana, Some Natty PB, And whole milk. Keeps me full til around 11am. I drink it at 8am.

    Is it a possibility for you to prepare some home-made protein bars? I'm not sure if it's too hot where you live, but I find these can be a handy and healthy snack. A good list of recipes to try out can be found at http://www.liftforlife.com/proteinbars.htm (Mods I hope that site is within the TOS, it should be but feel free to remove it)

    I would spring for the Ultra Peptide, then use 1 scoop with a scoop of Whey. You will still feel full for hours, and you will also get the benefit of the instant amino infusion from straight whey.

    UP and DYA Propeptide have given me better results than any other protein besides Ultra Size (however Ultra Size costs far too much)

    Ok, was between San Infusion, U.P. and VPX zero impact in the end. I am pretty leery of some brands mentioned. going with U.P. since it was actually about the least cost per serving. Just hope it tastes ok now, lol. Thanks for all the suggestions, I might use a few in the near future. I just don't want to mess around creating my own liquid meals for now, just add stuff to water or milk an go first thing in the morning.
    Thanks for the help!

    Bro - try Big Blast from the Protein Factory. It's a great blend of different proteins. I mix two scoops with a little soy milk and water in the morning and off I go.http://proteinfactory.com/shop/produ...5&cat=0&page=1

    Best tasting protein I've ever had for the price. (Chocolate with Splenda)

    Just milk, oats, 2 scoops of protein, and half cup of PB has done wonders for me and tastes great. just make sure to put a decent amount of milk in it.

    Labrada makes a breakfast shake that is extremely filling and loaded with good stuff - both whey and casein protein for time released absorption. I recommend the cinnamon oatmeal flavor. It's a little on the expensive side, but if you want convenience, you can't beat it.
