Paleo Smoothie Recipe

Mar 1st, 2013 | By | Category: Blog, Nutrition

Back in November, I told you that I had adopted the Paleo diet as a way to improve my health and lose weight. On Episoide 198 of The FredCast, I interviewed Coach Joe Friel, author of The Paleo Diet for Athletes. Since then, I’ve lost about 25 pounds and I feel great on and off the bike.

One of my secrets to Paleo success is my daily breakfast, a simple Paleo-friendly smoothie that provides all the protein and nourishment I need to get my day started. I thought you might be interested in the recipe, so here it is (I’ve included links to the specific products I use, for easy reference):

Paleo Breakfast Smoothie
1 Cup Coconut Milk
1 Scoop Egg White Protein
1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
1 Banana
6-8 Frozen Strawberries*
0.5 – 1 Cup Ice Cubes

Put all of the ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth. I found this insulated tumbler on Amazon and it fits the recipe perfectly.

One more thing . . . you know that I travel quite a bit for business, and eating well on the road (especially breakfast) can be quite difficult. I’ve started to pack a personal blender (I bought this one from Oster)
in my suitcase so that I can make my smoothies each day. Once I land in a city, I stop at the local Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, or (shudder) Wal-Mart and pick up my supplies, so that I am prepared to start each day well.

* You can use any fruit you like. I’ve used a variety of frozen berries, fresh mangoes, fresh kiwis, etc. I have noticed that I need to keep the fruit content down a bit because all that sugar at once can upset my stomach. Your mileage may vary.
