WIAW: Fruit Flush Day 1

Hi, all! It's Wednesday, here's What I Ate... Tuesday. :)


I decided yesterday that I would follow Jay Robb's Fruit Flush plan. The plan lasts three days, and the first is basically all protein shakes, all the time. I altered the plan a little, because I've tried drinking protein shakes made with just water, and I think they're disgusting. I made all of my shakes with Almond Breeze unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, and some with juice.


Breakfast: Creamsicle Shake
  • Tropical Dreamsicle Whey Protein Powder
  • 12 oz. almond milk 
  • 1 c. ice

This shake was a lot less smooth than I'm used to, probably because I didn't add xanthan gum. I was trying to stay as close to the Fruit Flush plan as possible.

Lunch: Pina Colada Shake
  • Pina Colada Whey Protein
  • 6 oz. almond milk
  • 6 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum


Creamy and delicious - also, this was about twice the volume as my breakfast shake. Xanthan gum is definitely the way to go!

 

 













Snack: Creamsicle Shake
  • Tropical Dreamsicle Whey Protein Powder
  • 6 oz. almond milk
  • 6 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum


Dinner: Salad
  • lettuce
  • grape tomatoes
  • avocado

I definitely altered the plan... a lot. But, I didn't feel starving or weird at all throughout the day which was great. Tomorrow is basically all fruit. I can't wait to see how that goes. :)

  3. All these shakes sound great. My mom used to make use pina colada protein shakes in the morning with extra coconut extract. That always took it over the top, and in addition to the vanilla protein power and frozen pineapple. So creamy and delicious.

  4. I've done an all fruit day before, I guess you could call it a one day detox. :) Keep us updated on the all fruit day. :)

  5. Pina Colada whey protein sounds so good! It's great that you weren't starving and the food you ate looks great. I need to get some xantham gum for my smoothies...haven't tried that yet
