When I wake up for the day, I have no desire to eat. It will take hours before my body decides that it's time to get something in my stomach, if at all. This is a problem for me, as I have a hard enough time eating to begin with and cannot afford to skip meals. Thus, I started looking into breakfast shakes.

I thought of the shakes as I can usually drink milk, orange juice, or coffee and be fine; if I try to eat something more solid my stomach rebels. I thought with a breakfast shake, I could add supplements into it easily.

Since then, I've made some interesting adjustments, tweaks, and mixtures in my blender. Maybe one day I'll actually have them down in written form :)

I have always had the same problem in the mornings - getting extremely nauseated/ having stomach pains, as if my stomach were like me - cranky about waking up. I found some good shake recipes in "The Abs Diet" book - about the only part of the book I use (my husbands). All include some vanilla whey protein powder to give me a little something extra : ). My favorites are a strawberry peanut butter shake and a berry w oatmeal blended in. Sooo good. i prefer them to a solid breakfast any time.

Hi, I often make shakes and smoothies just cause I like them. Are you a coffee drinker? I like to chill leftover coffee in the morning then use it later to make a coffee cooler with chocolate whey protein powder, a banana, and milk. Or vanilla protein powder goes well with fruit and milk or yogurt. I often add in ground flax seed for extra health benefits. My favorite blended flavors are banana, chocolate, and peanut yum.

About Me
I'm a full time university student who loves the simple things in life. Good food, good company, and good entertainment. I'm easy to please, and easily entertained as well!
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are Asian dishes. I also like making my own pasta sauces, and even made a tomato-based sauce that was sweet. I just like experimenting in general!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooks, and cooks, and cooks. I grew up learning that food is company's best friend, and so food was always available to offer to guests. For birthdays we make a Chocolate cake that has a secret ingredient that is always a hit. Kielbasa is also a staple 'comfort' food, always served with vinegar.
My cooking triumphs
When my older brother developed an allergy to soy products, I helped adapt many recipes to become soy-free so he could eat them. It was a lot harder than I first thought it would be - especially the more I discovered how many products have some type of soy in them!
My cooking tragedies
My most memorable cooking experience has to be the first time I made apple pie. The instructor said to add 'as much brown sugar as you want.' I took that a bit too literally (horrid sweet tooth, I admit!) and ended up making what is now called "Apple Soup in a Pie Crust."
