DISCLAIMER - Always consult with your medical professional before changing your diet.

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 system.


1 banana (gives the shake a smooth texture)
2 cubes frozen brocolli
2 cubes frozen spinach
1 stalk asparagus
1 scoop frozen blueberries or mixed berries
1 cube of ginger root
1 table spoon of garlic paste
plain WPC protein powder

Makes 2 serves, so share with with your partner or family! Peace!
