Excerpt of Article by Ryan Andrews | Precision Nutrition
Here’s one of the secrets to good nutrition: Not all of your meals have to be food meals. You can even replace one to two meals each day with easy-to-make, tasty little drinks we call Super Shakes.
Now, we know that there are tons of stores and juice bars springing up all over, offering smoothies. But honestly, these store bought and juice bar type shakes are just barely better than a fast-food milk-shake. They’re typically sweetened heavily with sugar, loaded with poor protein sources, and missing many of the nutrients found in whole foods.
The Super Shake, on the other hand, is packed with good stuff like high-quality protein, fiber, healthy fats, antioxidants and more.
