In this lesson we look at a healthy shake you can have before a gig or practice session. If you've seen the last lesson where I talked about how carbs and insulin works, you will understand why this shake is a good idea.
With this shake we're shooting for predominantly low GI carbs. We want low GI carbs so that we get a long, slow, sustained energy release. In doing so, we're not creating much of an insulin response in the body, which is a good thing because insulin stores fat. Also, abusing your insulin by eating high sugar foods often, can lead to Type 2 Diabetes.
I try to have this shake every day at breakfast. I usually drink it in the car on the way to the studio, a gig or teaching. It has a whole lot of foods in it that I know are great for me, but that I hate to eat, so I choose to drink them. Suprisingly, it actually doesn't taste that bad!
Aside from being loaded with Low GI carbs, it's
loaded with antioxidants too, and will help boost your immune
