Lean Protein to Fuel Your Middle Age Nutrition

To get the most out of your workouts, you need to fuel your body. Once you’re in middle age , you need to maintain muscle mass. Tonight I tried a new recipe that was quick and easy! I used 2.5lb bottom round roast obtained from a local farm. It’s 100% grass-fed and raised with love (oh the irony) and cooked it for 7hr on low in my slow cooker. You can find the recipe here as well as the nutrition information. For my kids, I served it with no-yolk egg noodles.

My Latest Shakeology Recipe

With my recent revelation that I am gluten-intolerant and so it would seem, oat-intolerant as well, I’m having to rethink breakfast. I need it to be quick and easy. I’m still unsure about eggs. I think I can one but certainly not everyday. So, I am moving my lunch Shakeology to breakfast!!! My wonderful husband surprised me with a Vitamix for Valentine’s day. I now have a new recipe since the Vitamix gets my shakes so smooth and creamy!

1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1/2 serv Hemp Pro 70
2 cups of organic greens (baby spinach, swiss chard etc)
4 organic baby carrots
1 tbsp organic chia seeds
1/2 c SO Delicious coconut milk
1 1/2c water
1/2 serv of frozen fruits (right now I’m on a mixed berry kick)

Here is a great article on leafy greens! Note that iceberg lettuce is at the very bottom and practically devoid of nutrients yet it is the most popular green in America.
