Default Lets talk Meal Replacement

I have a busy schedule and when I am not busy there are 10 things I should be doing besides eating. I recently revived my old habit of making a protein shake in my blender once or twice a day. The ingrediants I throw in are milk, oatmeal, whey protein, and a banana. I chase this with olive oil. Anyone have any similiar recipes? Anyone have any paleo friendly recipes?

Paleo friendly (although I don't use this so if it tastes bad don't blame me): ditch the milk and oatmeal, swap the whey for egg protein. Add fruit and some coconut oil and nuts and it might taste halfway decent. If not, hot sauce makes anything taste good.

I'm not Paleo but I do use shakes in the morning becuase when I wake up at 4:30 am the last thing I want to do is make breakfast.

I typically use 16 ounces of milk or almond milk, one scoop of casein, 1 tbsp of greens powder, 2 tbsp's of milled flax seeds. I also take my first 10 of 20 fish oil pills of the day with this. I've found natural nut butters to be a great addition also.

I think attempting "paleo" and "protein shake" all at once is probably a bad idea.

It's not religion, it's a matter of whether or not you tolerate that particular type or brand of whey (or other protein powder). If it doesn't make you feel weird, break out, or make you paranoid, and it satisfies you, then don't worry about it.

Some people are very sensitive to WPCs and WPIs might be a better choice. Others find more expensive proteins like MPIs or micellar caseins to be the way to go.

If maintaining "paleo" status is important to you, then eat meat. Make up some buffalo jerky.

If you want to add calories, try out coconut milk to mix your shakes in. I find that coconut milk is drastically cheaper at my local oriental groceries than in the regular grocery stores.

I make my shakes with whey (because I'm too poor to afford egg protein), some kind of fruit like banana or apple (peeled), then with some frozen berries, topped off with coconut milk. I have used olive oil, before, but I prefer the very light tasting olive oil.

I've heard there is coconut milk with no sugar....never seen that. Almond milk and the like have too much sugar for me. I do whey too. (after all the recent talks and studies about caesin and it's neg affects, I'm cutting it out) Could always throw in a couple raw eggs (those give a cal boost too). Olive Oil is good for fat cal...or a couple tbsp of almond butter.
