One of the hardest things that I encounter as a personal trainer and a wellness coach is my clients attachment to a number on the scale. We will have our first meeting; a client will tell me they are unhappy with their weight. “Ten years ago I weighed 140 lbs, and now I’m 180 lbs. I want to be back to 140 lbs.”, “My weight has never been so high” or “I’m 225 lbs and I want to be 175 lbs because that would put me at where I’m supposed to be.” Often there are tears as clients say the numbers and tell me their past weight loss struggles.
One of my favorite things about fall is the return of great fall produce like brussel sprouts, winter squash, and of course the mother of all fall vegetables, pumpkin!
This year, I wanted a good go to morning protein shake, so I created this one. It does make a large serving, but only runs about 250 calories depending on your protein powder. Enjoy!
