Banana Bread Smoothie Recipe

banana bread smoothieOkay, here’s a different one to try out, the Banana Bread Smoothie. This comes from the Metabolic Cooking program. I had to try this one because it uses cooked oats. I regularly have oatmeal for breakfast, so what better than an oatmeal smoothie.

I have tried smoothies in my Nutribullet Pro with oats added and they are delicious, but cooked oats! I had to try.

It is a very good and healthy recipe. You won’t be disappointed if you like oatmeal.

I’m using Organic Soy Powder from Swansons. It’s a healthy powder and tastes great in smoothies.  This product was featured in Prevention’s 6 Healthiest Protein Powders for Your Smoothie. 100% Certified Organic Whole Soybean Powder has 10 grams of easy-digesting protein per serving. Plus, it has all the healthful components of the soybean. This nutritional powder truly delivers!

Banana Bread Smoothie
Notes: Cook oats (with water) and cool. Put all ingredients in a blender
and enjoy! This smoothie is perfect for breakfast or post-exercise because
of its higher carbohydrate content.
• 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
• 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
• 1 frozen banana
• ½ cup (dry measure) rolled oats
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 5 ice cubes

It contains vitamins like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc. The other nutrients available in this milk include vitamins such as vitamin C, B-6, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate and vitamin E. All these nutrients have various benefits which are essential for a healthy body. –

What do you think? Is this delicious, I think so. I’m using my Nutribullet Pro and just love it!

Metabolic Cooking Craze

metabolic cooking boxsetSo what’s up with this Metabolic Cooking craze and what is Metabolic Cooking anyway? I had to find out for myself. As you may know I not only love juicing and making smoothies, but I also write about health and wellness.

I wanted to see for myself if this metabolic cooking craze is for real or not. There are so many diet plans out there and so much hype it’s hard to know what’s good. Let me tell you right now, this Metabolic Cooking program I got is the real deal. It’s not hype and it’s backed by solid research.

So if you want to eat healthier, look better, feel better or lose weight, I highly recommend Metabolic Cooking. It’s just a good common sense approach to healthy eating habits.

Did your mother ever tell you to eat your vegetables? Well she was right, vegetables are so important to good healthy eating habits. Not to mention fruit. Good whole, fresh fruit is great for your body. Buy organic fruits and vegetables when possible and grow your own if you can. That’s the best way I’ve found!

Metabolic Cooking

What is Metabolic Cooking? Metabolic Cooking is NOT  just another .pdf book, it’s an entire program designed specifically with maximum fat loss in mind. Rather than using ultra low calorie foods that leave you wanting more, it uses top fat burning foods that supercharge your metabolic rate so that fat loss progresses along much more quickly despite the fact that you still get to eat satisfying, delicious meals. It includes a website and community of people helping each other to eat healthier and lose weight. I’m so impressed, it’s a GREAT website!

When you purchase Metabolic Cooking you’ll gain access to the METABOLIC COOKING ACCESS CENTER & LEAN KITCHEN COOKBOOK CLUB. This includes knowledgeable information guides, cookbooks, done-for-you meal plans, desserts and bonuses. There is a wealth of information to help and guide you along.

I’ll review some recipes later, but for now let me share some information from the Fat Loss Optimizer Guide.

1. Make sure that you’re cooking with nothing but high quality protein sources. Eggs, chicken and poultry, lean red meat (lean beef or game meat which is a fantastic source of protein), fish, as well as pork are the main ones to turn to.

2. One of the most important foods that you must be taking in through your diet plan is low glycemic index carbohydrates.  Low-GI (Glycemic Index) carbohydrates are the ones you want to choose, not those overly processed, high-sugar, insulin spiking carbs that most people are eating.

3. Good fats are needed by your body to remain healthy and to function at optimal levels. Healthy fats are heavily involved in maintaining a healthy metabolic rate and will influence how well your thyroid gland functions.

I wholeheartedly agree with all of the above statements from the Metabolic Cooking Program and it is backed by solid research. (I might add though, my personal preference is to eat less meat, more fish and more fruits and vegetables.) There are plenty of good cooking recipes to be found and Metabolic Cooking uses smoothies in their program too! They know what’s good! Choose the recipes that suit your taste. If you don’t like pork, replace it with something else. You can choose and it works!

So to wrap this up let me say, this is not just a diet and it’s not hype. This is a health plan! Follow this plan and I guarantee you, you’ll be healthier, lose weight, look and feel better.

Thanks for reading. I’m trying new recipes from the Metabolic Cooking Program, so stay tuned. What are you doing to eat healthier?
