I figured I would start posting some recipes I like to use or have made up. This was a recipe I found and added a lot of things to.
Breakfast Idea: Chai Smoothie. High in protein, Potassium, and fiber. (For the time being, I am finishing off some vanilla yogurt I have that is high in sugar. I would recommend a fat-free plain yogurt instead). I will probably be changing a few ingredients in the fu...ture, but this is me working with the materials I have for the time being. Don't worry too much about the cholesterol as the oatmeal combats cholesterol (the cholesterol is from the protein powder. You can try finding one with no cholesterol in it). Potassium is very hard to get enough of. It helps fight heart disease, so it is good to get enough of it.
This is spicy and exotic. For people who like strong flavors.
