  • Protien Shakes/Meal Replacement Drinks...Options?

    So what constitutes a 'good' meal replacement-type drink?

    Obviously, I'd like to try Primal Fuel, but the price is a bit disheartening. I know there's other options out there, all with different chemical make-ups and pros/cons.

    Anyone have some suggestions?

    I'd probably use the drinks maybe once a day or so, either as a small snack or meal replacement. I'm *not* looking for a 'work-out fuel' as that's what most protein powders seem to be marketed toward. Just something quick and easy that tastes good.

    Not sure if this is the type of thing your looking for, but I like to make my own smoothies from real food. I included one of my favorite recipes at the bottom of this blog post. This ones a little complicated, but I've got other more basic ones along the same lines.

        I don't know if I do either, that's kinda why I'm asking for some insight =P

        Al, the smoothie route is something I hadn't really looked into either, so thanks for the links! =D

          I like Shakeology but it is pricey as well.

          I did smoothies for a number of years for breakfast. Baby spinach was always my base and I added various things form there.

            I have used Jay-Robb in the past as it seems very natural and high-quality. I add in some coconut milk for sat fat. Anyone else have an opinion about Jay-Robb products?
