Herbalife Healthy Meal Shake Recipe – Pralines N’ Cream + Peanut Cookie

I picked up a massive shipment of my Herbalife Formula 1 Shake mixes and boy, I’ve got some surprises for you!

I woke up at 1am (jet lag has been killing me for a while) and was hungry.  I was contemplating eating candy and getting a processed chicken sandwich from 7-11, but then I realized that I had three new shake mixes and decided to try out a combo.

With two scoops of Pralines and 1 Scoop of the Protein Drink Mix (Peanut Cookie), I get about 30 grams of protein (much needed after food poisoning on my Singapore Airlines flight) and all the essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals.

The taste is very distinct, primarily because the Pralines N’ Cream is very strong; so to offset the taste, you can possibly switch out the Pralines for an ordinary French Vanilla.

I haven’t tried adding any fruits with it just yet, but I would recommend some peanut butter.  Two variations are ones with and without nuts.  For this, try it with nuts….having that crunchy taste makes it so much better.  If you’re not a fan of the crunching, go with the smooth.  If you’re not a fan of peanut butter, just go with a whole banana.

If you have any recommendations on what to add, comment away!

Avocado + Tomato Salad

People! Welcome back to my nice little healthy food blog that I do from time-to-time to reach out to those who are searching for the mid-afternoon snack or just a healthy, good fat type of meal to carry along with or prepare in just five minutes.

Avocado + tomatoes salad!

Now, if this if your first time with me, avocados are your friend.  They’re your soulmate.  The saviour.  Why? They provide the best fat out there along with olive oil and any type of nut (big almond fan).

When I was young, I would see my mom eat about 2-3 avocados a day and call her disgusting.  However, for a 58 year old woman, her digestive system and looks are absolutely amazing! I never knew how she looked so good, but she did.  Avocados!

Here’s a nice & basic recipe for those of you out there who are looking to improve your digestive health without taking supplements.

Ingredients

1 lb Roma tomatoes
1 cucumber
½ medium red onion, sliced
2 avocados, diced
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or sunflower oil
Juice of 1 medium lemon (about 2 Tbsp)
¼ cup (1/2 bunch) cilantro, chopped
⅛ tsp black pepper

Oh, you’re probably wondering where the salt is.

If you want to sprinkle some salt on your salad, that’s entirely up to you.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend it because you already have enough taste going around, especially if you include a lemon.  I think you can go without the sprinkles of salt. 😉

Share away and enjoy!

Banana + Herbalife Pancakes – Post Endurance Workout Meal

Hello, people! Welcome back to the foodie blog and what I’m bringing to you today is a HEAVY carb meal after a crazy endurance workout.

On days I go running through the sweltering heat, stench of sewage, pollution from 40 year old buses and ominous stares from people, I love to load up heavily on carbohydrates so I can get that energy back.

Ofcourse depending exactly what you do, carbs after a workout for cardio burn – for weight lifting it would be protein.

With that being said, I love my Herbalife.  If you guys aren’t a fan of it, you can find some protein at your local store.  Doesn’t matter….but having the variety of flavors at hand makes for a delicious plate of heaven.  I recommend using vanilla or chocolate since those actually go along with the distinct sweetness of a banana.

Ingredients……

📌100 g. flour pancakes
📌1 tablespoon baking powder
📌1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
📌2 eggs
📌2 tbsp sugar (recommend 1 for those ewwww-I-don’t-like-sugar-junkies).
📌1 1/3 cups milk
📌1 scoop herbalife nutritional shake mix (vanilla or chocolate). One scoop contains 9 grams of protein.

Roasted Veggies Recipe

For everyone who’s looking for a nice side dish to eat for dinner, I’ve got you covered with some roasted vegetables!

Ingredients:

Choose your favorite vegetables…..heck, I like to even throw in potatoes, too.  However, just try veges this time around.

Get your variety of veges such as broccoli, celery, brussel sprouts, or whichever you like and chop them up.

Procedure:

Throw your chopped Veggies into a big mixing bowl along with 1 tbsp salt, and 1 tbsp of paprika. You can even throw in some fresh Rosemary, as well as well as some garlic.  Now, with the garlic taste, it could be very distinctive, so be careful.  If some of you don’t like garlic, don’t put it in.  Finally, throw in about 1/4 cup of Olive Oil, and 1 tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar (the real stuff if you can get it, otherwise any wine vinegar will do.)

Cover a sheet pan with Aluminium Foil and spread the veggies in a thin, even layer. If you pile them up too much, they won’t brown properly. If you end up having too much, just set some veggies aside and roast them later.

Roast for 20 minutes at 450 degrees, take them out, give them a stir, rotate the pan, and place them back in the oven until they’re nicely charred. Check on them after about 10 minutes, but let them go a little longer if you like. Be careful not to cook them too long or they’ll get mushy.

And here’s your basic, charred veges recipe! Please comment, like or share and here’s my podcast down below if you want to actually listen to me explain the process.
