What's for Breakfast?

After an hour long session on the elliptical I knew I needed something super healthy for breakfast.

How about a chocolate shake?

I know what you're thinking...a chocolate shake isn't healthy right?  Wrong!  It is when it's packed with protein, fiber, calcium and omegas.  How's that possible you might be thinking...I'll share.

Chocolate Banana Breakfast Shake
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 medium banana, frozen
1 scoop EAS chocolate protein powder (or similar)
2 tsp. Chia Seed
2 tsp. Ground Flax Seed
Scoop of Ice

Blend all ingredients on high until fully blended.  Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!

The chia seed and ground flax are full of omegas and fiber.  Don't be afraid of them either.  I can guarantee you that once fully blended into the shake you absolutely cannot tell they are in there.  There is no graininess at all and the added health benefits of those two little extras cannot be beat.  I actually think you could increase the amount of both of them and it still wouldn't be noticeable.

What do you guys put into your morning or afternoon shakes?  Do you use them as a snack or full meal replacement?
