Education is the primary function of Sprague The Leg. Keeping this in mind, many athletes ask which protein powder is best. This author has tried them all: pre and post workout shakes, NO Explode, Creatine, Glutamine, Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), SuperSet, you get the picture. The name of the game is recovery: how quickly can one build back up what it has just torn down. What’s the best protein shake out on the market? The answer to your question isn’t purchased at GNC or MaxMuscle.
Lets quickly review what your body needs for workouts: Carbohydrates, Fat, and Protein. Carbohydrates are necessary for sustained energy, fats are the main fuel source for which calories are burned, and protein aids in repairing muscle after it’s broken down. Go to your local market, purchase a can of coconut milk (found in the Asian cooking section), free-range organic eggs, and blueberries (most fruit will do the trick). That’s right, all natural baby! No gimmicks, fancy labels, bulging biceps or price tags.
Coconut milk represents our fat (monounsaturated fats which are the good kind), which helps you feel full and gives you calories to burn. Free-range organic eggs are your protein, which your muscles need to help during protein synthesis (repairing themselves). The blueberries or fruit of choice are the carbs that give you a quick boost.
To make this concoction you’ll want to pour the coconut milk into a blender, crack open three eggs, and add a cup of blueberries. Blend up this witches brew, down the hatch, and off you go. It may not taste like a milkshake but putting the right fuel into your body is far more important than what your taste buds are telling you.
