Is a shake really the only option for breakfast? I don't find it appealing.
Sure, there are other options. You can basically do any food that doesn't have the "Evil 6". You can do eggs, fruit, veggies, other meats - basically the things that you eat for lunch/dinner are fine too. Some people eat leftovers of dinner the night before. However things like bagels, toast, cereal, pancakes - those are off limits.
The reason I typically do a shake is because it is fast and easy - and I know that I am getting good nutrition. This morning I woke up, walked to the kitchen, had a full glass of water, and then mixed almond milk, ice, frozen strawberries, and Vanilla Fuel. 1 minute later I'm having breakfast that I know is good for me.
I've found if you can find the right concoction that protein shakes can be very appealing. Mine now is a scoop of powder, 3 parts water-1 part lite apple juice, a banana and some frozen strawberries. Every so often I'll get some blueberries to put in also.
It took me a while to get to that recipe. I tried the different flavored powders but didn't like them. Now, I stick with vanilla and add different fruits. The apple juice helps a lot with the powder after taste.
