Stack that Cereal

Gosh, overnight my legs were on fire from those gazillion of lunges. I woke up at least twice in pretty bad pain, but this morning I was ok. I can only credit that to ETP, because in the past I would usually hurt for 3 days until recovered. Who thought that rice krispie treats could be the cure. :p

Today I was still doing developmental work during the OLY session. Next week the real stuff starts.

Got some great groceries at Trader Joes. Thinking of eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, Pork tenderloins with Brussels sprouts and burgers with green beans and mushrooms for lunches, and salads or protein shakes for dinners. Pre/PWO is oats and cream of rice with protein powders. And now I need to find some fun cereal thanks to Chris. The cereals at Trader Joes and my food coop just looked too healthy, but for sure I wont go to Walmart.


I think I got that (the fast-release carbs) covered for a while. Hey, where else can you use the excuse to eat sugary cereals for performance and speedy recovery. :p


So what if you only have only 150 calories left and want some ice cream and 1/2 cup of the real stuff wouldn’t cut it? Protein Ice Cream!


Chocolate Protein Vitamix Ice Cream

1/2 cup skim or nondairy milk
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon guar gum
Ice cubes

Place all the ingredients except ice cubes in Vitamix pitcher, and blend on lowest speed just to mix. Add ice to about the 600 ml mark. Secure lid and select Variable 1 setting. Turn Vitamix on and increase speed to Variable 10, then High. Tamp the ice down for about 30 seconds, or until the sound of the motor changes and it looks like ice cream. Its quite a big serving – about a pint! Serves 1 if you like ice cream.  Source
