The TJF breakfast of champions

Posted in Recipes, Tim's Diary by admin on June 13th, 2007

This morning I made a smoothie for breakfast. It was really tasty and I have definately found a new recipe that I will be using much more. The main ingredient I need to tell you about is a new product I found in the Adult Willy Wonka Factory (Whole Foods in High Street Kensington). Its called Egg Nation and is the best protein supplement I have found so far – Click Here for the Egg Nation website to find out more and to buy online.Having liquid egg whites in your smoothie may sound gross but trust me, all the sh*t that is put in your whey protein supplement is much grosser.

TJF Breakfast of Champions Recipe:

  • 250ml Egg Nation
  • 3 scoops natural goats milk yoghurt
  • 6 big strawberries
  • 1 white nectarine
  • 3 scoops organic oats
