Another fact: I don't like the taste of protein powder.
A little while ago, I was faced with a problem.
With the weather getting warmer, in order to cool off in the mornings, I really wanted to make some smoothies for breakfast, in place of my usual oatmeal, which just wouldn't do on hot days.
However, in order for a smoothie to officially qualify as breakfast, it needed to contain enough protein to keep me going all morning.
Needless to say, an all fruit smoothie was not the answer. And, after trying, and disliking, a recipe with protein powder, I knew that it wouldn't do either.
I was genuinely stumped for a while, until one morning when, while rummaging around the fridge, my eyes fell upon an All Whites carton. There, written on the side of the box, was just what I was looking for; an egg white smoothie recipe.
Using that recipe for guidance, I created my very own egg white smoothie, complete with at least 5 grams of protein, depending on what type of milk you use.
And the best part? It's a perfectly acceptable, healthy breakfast that has everything you need to get through the morning!
