NoNameNoSlogan - ...you guys who list 3/4 cup this, 1/2 cup that... do you really measure shit out each time?

I just grab a handful of spinach and kale and throw that shit in.


(oh, and those of you who list, "secret ingredient"... Is it your own urine?



No that just happen to be the way I logged it that time.
I hardly ever have the same ingredients 2 times in a row, except the protein.

I don't measure it, but I know the difference between a 1/2 cup and cup without breaking out the actual cups. It's a skill, don't hate.

shadallion - You guys must be going to the grocery store every two days to keep so many damn vegetables around.

Just use a green foods blend.


I empty most of the fridge every 3 days or so, and yes that's mostly fruits and veggies. I don't just put them in shakes though but cook with them as well. I also have the feeling that fresh fruits and veggies are always gonna give you more nutrients than a chopped and dried powder version. Someone has probably done a study about that.

Never use powder over fresh real veggies. That's awful. Phone Post

Okay bros, after my post about using supergreens powder over real veggies, I went out and bought some fresh veggies and basically copied OP's formula (minus the "secret ingredient.)

I busted out the heavy duty Vitamix blender this morning. I usually just use the Magic Bullet because it's so easy and convenient, but there was too much volume to use that.

The vitamix is impressive.

And it’s amazing how:

1) much veggies/fruit you can get into a shake
2) how good it tastes
3) how filling it is
4) how smooth the consistency is

This morning in one (large, approximately 16 oz) shake I had:

• 3 scoops protein
• Handful of Spinach
• Handful of Spring greens
• 3 brocoli pieces, with stalks
• 10 Blueberries
• 3 Strawberries
• a few cubes of ice and a little water.

I am STUFFED right now, and look at all that healthiness I got in there!

I think I’m going to commit drinking this shake (maybe with less protein) at least once, maybe twice a day.

This can kill two birds with one stone: ensure that I get healthy, nutritious vegetables at multiple meals, AND if I eat it before dinner or lunch, I won’t be inclined to over-eat the actual entrée.

Heck, I might be able to simply replace either lunch or dinner. It’s that rich and filling.

Still think supergreens are useful, but they definitely don't offer the actual *foodness* of real veggies and fruits, in the sense of satiating your hunger.

Thanks to everyone to contributed to this thread, you've actually impacted another human being's life in postive way.

You might also notice that you have a reduced craving for sweets and fried shit as well. I went cold turkey on energy drinks and diet soda at the same time I started superfood style shakes. I was expecting a battle since I loved the taste of Monster, but it was a non-issue. I think that a lot of those cravings come from a lack of nutrients in diet even if you're taking a multivitamin, using greens and fish oil supplements (which I was doing) and so on.

Congrats on giving it a try, and the vitamix is a pretty pimp blender to just have laying around.

With the exception of the creatine, my breakfast shake is pretty much identical to Taku's Kitchen Sink Shake.

LittleJoeMama, how much coconut oil do you throw in? 1 solid spoonful?

I heard Robb Wolf on JRE talking about fat being necessary for vegetable nutrient absorption, wonder of there might be something to that...

I fill the ninja blender with kale, 8 oz of blueberries, coconut milk, 2 scoops of choco whey, yields 2 full Blender Bottles (20something oz each). Have these I'm between meals at work

Was doing half an avocado, but freshness variance cn kill the shake. Will try with coconut oil tomorrow. Phone Post
