    VickyCab81 answered the Question: What do you put in your shake for breakfast?

    I like frozen pineapple with coconut milk. I also like adding cocoa powder and berries. The protein powder I use has a coffee flavor and I add cooled coffee to this with almond milk and it was delicious and kept me from drinking coffee later in the day. I try to have a different shake every day so that I don't get bored.

    Unfortunately I am not much help in this area as I really didn't use too many of the recipes on here. I took what I would normally eat and adapted it to meet the rules. There are plenty of websites with paleo recipes that would be helpful to you. I would just make sure you watch the sugar content. There is plenty of yummy food you can have so don't deprive yourself.

    Garden of Life but make sure you choose one that is soy free. It's listed on the front of the bucket. Some of them contain soy so you have to be careful. I believe all of the Raw Fit powders are soy free.

    VickyCab81 asked the Question: Is it ok to have the better chip?

    Is it ok to have these when having a potato chip craving? They are gluten free and have 130 calories. The ingredients are corn masa flour, sunflower and/or canola oil, spinach, kale, and sea salt.

    VickyCab81 asked the Question: Is it okay to take vitamin D vitamins?

    I looked at the ingredients in the vitamin D that I take and it states soybean oil. Is this considered soy? If so, is there a brand I should take that doesn't contain this. My vitamin D is low and I'm supposed to take it on a daily basis.

    VickyCab81 answered the Question: Any other Breakfast options? I don't do shakes.

    I guess egg white would be a good option. I thought I would get tired of the shakes but I make a different one every day. After making lunch and dinner for a few days, I'm happy to have the shakes since it's so much easier.

    VickyCab81 asked the Question: What can be used as a sweetener in coffee?

    I need to have a cup of coffee everyday and I was wondering if Stevia or Monk Fruit in the Raw could be used while on Ignite?

    I like my shake with frozen pineapple, frozen mangos, coconut milk, and coconut water. I also make one with frozen strawberries and cocoa powder.

    VickyCab81 commented on ErinP123's answer to How do I give myself more motivation?:

    Just keep in mind that you are doing this for yourself. If you lose sight of that other people's thoughts are more likely to get you down. Take it one day at a time. If you give in to the unhealthy habits don't worry it happens to all of us. We are human after all. Just make sure you catch yourself right away and make the change. Don't let one mistake discourage you just keep it going. I think once your family sees your results they will be more interested in what you are doing and will be more likely to join, My husband loves everything sugar and when I started Ignite he would have to go elsewhere to eat his sugar. I started providing healthier options for his snacks and he is making the changes. Once more people are on board it makes it a lot easier but hold strong. You can do this and once everyone sees how happy you are and how much energy you have they will likely join you. Keep up the good work. Something that I do when I am tempted to eat something bad is think to myself is this the best cupcake, cookie, etc? I figure if I'm going to cheat it is going to be worth it and most of the time you realize it's not worth all the hard work you're putting in. But I would say don't deprive yourself completely - just find healthier ways to get in the things you like. That way you are more likely to keep it going for the long run. Good luck!

    You can cook more of a protein and just switch up the sides. For example you can cook chicken and use it for a salad and then have it with veggies and brown rice. I always make a little extra to avoid having to cook so many meals.
