    I want to start having my work meals be healthier and in shake form instead of eating random crap. I've been trying to find recipes but nothing that will work easily without buying a bunch of random stuff.

    What I have at work already available.
    - Water/ice
    - Milk
    - Juice (orange mango)
    - Oats
    - Bananas
    - Whey protein/fiber powder

    Can bring in other small/simple stuff if necessary but that's what I have to work with all the time. Recommend me some recipes/amounts/measurements of stuff that would work well for a high protein meal replacement.

    Thanks :wavey:

    problem with replacing meals with shakes is that you will start to feel hungry again very quickly. body needs solids

    Understandable. But I'd still like to give it a shot. It's only for at work so I don't eat crappy food instead. Normal meals when at home/out.

    Here's something I came up with from reading recipes. I substituted one thing in here but let me know how this sounds?

    - 2 scoops whey
    - 2 cups oatmeal (maybe just one cup?)
    - 1 table spoon peanut butter
    - 16 oz. skim milk
    - 1 banana
    - 2 packets honey (recipe said 1 table spoon but we have packets at work so I think this will be close)


    Seems weird to me, only change I made was the oatmeal to replace almond flakes it originally called for.

    Good for meal replacement?

    Benefiber helps with that. I put 2-3x the regular serving in each of my shakes and not only does it keep me full longer, but I have some pretty ballin poops.

    is this your only shake/meal of the day?
    oatmeal 25+ carbs x 2 (150 cals x 2)
    banana 25+ grams carbs (what 50 + cals?)
    16 0z milk is 2 cups at 300 or so cals
    honey both packets are 20 + g carbs each, and what 63 cals apeice
    2 scoops whey= 240 cals,

    i'm just guessing at all these from memory of putting shit into fitday

    but that shake is close to 700 calories, with over a hundred g of carbs. Plus since its not solid food its not going to be very filling. heck and i forgot 2 mix in the peanut butter!!

    better:

    1 cup milk with .75 scoop whey

    bowl of oatmeal with banana and 2 tbls of pb and 1/2 scoop whey mixed in, and one packet of honey if you really need the sweetener.

    1 cup milk with .75 scoop whey and 2 tablespoons of pb

    this throughout the day will control hunger better, raise metabolism better, and give you a better macro breakdown.


    But it all depends on what your goals are really, and what you are looking for in your daily meal plan.

    i would go with casein instead of whey and add a fat source it will keep you full longer

    Hmm that's quite a bit.

    My goals are something high in fiber/protein that I can make easily at work instead of eating shitty sandwiches or other crap.

    The oatmeal packs I have are 110 cals a piece. I was thinking of using 2, but maybe 1 would be better? I would also be using non-fat milk. The whey protein/fiber powder I have at work isn't horribly bad. But I don't know the exact facts off-hand.

    What about just doing the oats (oatmeal, 1 or 2 packs?), non-fat milk (16 ounces is about 100 and something cals isn't it?), 1 banana, the powder, and some honey (2 packs? the packs aren't very big). No peanut butter in this recipe, I don't have it at work anyways and probably won't ever remember to bring it.

    My goal is for one or two meal replacements a day. Working on trying to lean out a little and trying to find meal alternatives.

    It's just what I have available (for free) at work. So that's why I was going to use it.

    The whey I have at work is as follows for the serving amount I'd use.

    90 cals
    3g carbs
    3g fiber
    18g protein


    It's really weak stuff I guess. It's their own "proprietary whey protein & fiber powder."

    do you work for a supplement manufacturer/distributor or something?


    just bring a sandwich and then have a shake to add some extra protein.... what's the big deal with putting meat and lettuce on bread? takes 5 mins and gives you something to chew on.

    Don't work for any supplement companies or anything like that.

    Start supplementing with fiber before you get hemorrhoids.
