I recently got myself the Metabolic Cooking System (around the month of march), and, like I already said, I REALLY like this system a lot! It is pretty low-carb but still allows you to have them at specific periods of the day. I already lost 18 pounds since April. So I decided to share my favorite breakfast recipe for my busy mornings with you guys. The Coffee Protein Shake "Thermoccino"! I love smoothies for a quick breakfast, but this one has my coffee AND my breakfast at the same time. It's extremely delicious, low-carbs and it's loaded with protein and keeps me full for hours.
This is what the coffee protein shake recipe looks like in the book. You will get the calories, grams of protein, carbohydrates and fat for each one of the 250 recipes. At the top right of the recipe, you have the basic macro-nutrients composing the recipe. In the Thermoccino, you see a P at the top of the sheet, that stands of Protein since it is the main macro-nutrient, meaning it is low fat and low carbs. When me and my boyfriend are trying to cut excess fat, we like to lower the carbohydrates for a while. If you're curious about how their Nutri-Profile works, just see it here : What is the Nutri-Profile.
• 1 scoop Vanilla Iso-Flex Isolate Protein Powder
