It’s hard to believe the recommended fruit and vegetable intake for an athlete is 13-20 servings (8-12 for the average person)! How in the world can that be done? Plus it is recommended to EAT FROM THE RAINBOW. I personally fall back on my juice plus to assure that I get these in and then I try to have a serving of vegetables for each meal and 2 additional snacks. Fruits are easier for me but breakfast is also really hard to always get a vegetable included. So here is a recipe that has 2 vegetables plus some protein to start your day off right!
2 scoops Vanilla Juice Plus Complete Protein Powder
9 Egg Whites (I saved the yolks and scrambled those)
3/4 Cup Pumpkin
Pumpkin Pie Seasoning to taste
3/4 cup Oat Flour (gluten free)
2 medium yams/s. potato ( steamed and soft with skin)
1 TBL Vanilla
Cinnamon to Taste
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all the ingredients, place in muffin tins, Bake @ 350 for 18 – 22 minutes.
