Hello! Today I’m reviewing the new Skinny Gut protein shake powder, but first let’s talk running and eating…
I did a slow 10 miler to start the day. I just wanted to go kinda long today. Mid-run stop and walk for a few text messages and voice mails. It was nice to have a walking break in the middle.
And when I got back I had something I’ve been craving = turkey sausage. I am very random in my cravings. 92% of the time it’s something sweet, but every now and then when I’m craving salty food I cannot stop until I have it (I think that’s because I eat sweet stuff so often my body knows it’ll only be 12 minutes until it gets sugar again).
Yesterday I went to the store specifically for seltzer and turkey sausage. This epic breakfast sandwich was the result:
Instead of butter or mayo I used my new greek yogurt dip and it was perfection.
Skinny Gut Ultimate Shake
A few weeks ago a rep from the Skinny Gut Diet sent me their new Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shakes to try. The container comes with some recipes, but I decided to create my own since I have so many apples to eat!
Mid-morning I made a smoothie with: Almond milk, Skinny Gut Shake mix, 1 chopped apple, 1 packet stevia and ice.
For some reason when I eat apples by themselves I am hungrier after?! Luckily, putting it in the shake mix kept me full a lot longer. That’s probably because the mix has both protein and fiber.
The shake mix is vegan, gluten-free, non GMO and has vitamins and anti-oxidants.* It also has no added sugar – which is why I added a packet of stevia. It wasn’t sweet enough for me, but I’m used to super sweet protein smoothies. They come in Renew Life Skinny Gut Vanilla Shake or Renew Life Skinny Gut Chocolate Shake. I have only tried the vanilla.
Overall: I liked it but would probably mix it with sweeter fruit next time like pineapple or banana.
And now Vegas and I are going to relax and check Instagram… (I wrote this post before he got sick. I’ll update the 2 of you that care if he dies on his health status as soon as the vet calls with test results.)
Question: Do you prefer chocolate or vanilla smoothies?
Most of the time I go chocolate, but I like to mix vanilla with fruit.
