Fit and Fabulous – by Teresa

Here are four Carb Sensitivity Shakes options and their ingredients selected to help301 lower insulin. I have been reading this fabulous book, The Carb Sensitivity Program by Dr. Natasha Turner. She has been on many shows including ‘The Marilyn Denis Show’. I thoroughly love watching and learning about all the insightful information she has to offer. Chapter 7, pages 136-138 you will find these recipes.

I may give you some suggestions to which protein powder that I like and have tried. Go ahead and try these protein shakes, your body will love them!!!

Option 1:

· 1 serving of whey protein isolate, any flavor (I like Kaizen isolate whey protein and PVL’s ISO SPORT WHEY, both sweetened with stevia. You also may use a rice, hemp or vegan protein.)

· 2 Tbsp. of ground flaxseed or chia seed or 1 serving of a fiber supplement (optional, but highly recommended) I like using The Daily Cleanse or psyllium husk in my protein smoothies.

· 1 Tbsp. of almond, pumpkin seed, hazelnut, or cashew butter. (MMMMmmmmmmm….. yummy!!!!! Note: Pumpkin seed butter contains the least amount of fat and has highest amount of protein per serving.) This is the nutritional value for 30g of pumpkin seed butter: 160 Cals, 13 g of fat, 4 g of carbs, 1 g of fibre, and 10 g of protein.

· ¼ tsp. of cinnamon (helps to regulate blood sugar levels)

· ½-3/4 cup water or unsweetened almond milk (you may even use half of the liquid as water and the rest as the almond milk if desired)

· 3-4 ice cubes (optional and depending on size you may use more)
· Stevia (optional)

· Add your ice, liquid, dry ingredients plus nut butter into a blender and blend on high speed until shake is smooth and creamy. Alternatively, for those who wish to use a protein shaker cup, just toss all of the ingredients except the water or unsweetened almond milk in your cup. When you are ready for your snack or post-workout meal, just add the water or unsweetened almond milk and shake well and drink.

Stay tuned for the next 3 options of Carb sensitivity shakes designed by Dr. Natasha Turner.

About Teresa

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. You could say I was one of the “originals”. LOL!! Growing up, I watched my mom bake and cook various delicious dishes and wanted in on the action. When I was five I received my very own miniature baking sheet and tart pan. I remember making tiny “Barbie size” buns and mini cinnamon crescents among other delicious goodies. With much anticipation and joy, I watched and waited for them to rise and bake. I was thoroughly ecstatic when I saw the perfectly golden pastries coming out of the oven. Those were humble beginnings and as time went on, they evolved into much more sophisticated culinary fare. One particular thing that was instilled into me at an early age was the need to “revamp” the recipe and make it healthier. My mom was a firm believer in using less sugar and less butter in her baking. She would also add different ingredients to better improve the flavor and health benefits of whatever she was baking. Much of her skills and talent have transferred onto me in which I’m very thankful for. I have also watched many episodes of CityLine and Martha Stewart which further developed my cooking and baking skills. Whenever I bake, I like to use the finest ingredients. These include a wide variety of ancient grains and gluten free flour. I love to experiment with old family classics and marvel at the “fabulicious” outcomes! Yum! Yum! My other passions are fitness and fashion. I am a fitness model who thrives on being healthy, remaining youthful and in optimal shape. I love to train my body hard and incorporate good nutrition and supplementation to go along with it. I have studied many interesting topics on health and nutrition along with diet and exercise plans from some of the top coaches/personal trainers in North America. I love to share my knowledge from what I have learned and pass it on. Remember this: Knowledge is power only when you use it.
