Earlier this week I saw some commotion on Twitter about putting protein powder in coffee. Uh-wuh?!?! o_0
I do have to give credit where credit is due. My cousin from another mother (and country), Vinny Vasquez, is the one that posted about it. I’m sure others have said it before, but they were probably weird figure girls. Vin is an aspiring Strength Coach such as myself so I usually listen when he talks, erm, tweets. You know.
Alright, alright, so what’s this deal with breakfast then? Well, I was running a little late this morning (much like every morning but for some reason I actually cared. Weird. Must be in bizzaro world.) and didn’t have time for breakfast. BOOM!! Protein coffee to the rescue!!
My current goal is fatloss so for breakfast I had an apple, orange, and banana along with my protein coffee. That’s a good mix of carbs, protein, vitamins, and minerals. There’s not a lot of calories there to keep me full, but that’s where the coffee comes in. Caffeine is a known appetite suppressant. Ba-BOOM, again, I say!
Let’s review: a good mix of protein, carbs, vitamins, and minerals. Low in calories. High on energy. Isn’t that, like, everything you try to achieve when losing weight?! Maybe it’s not completely ideal, but when you’re on the go, it’s better than MOST other alternatives (breakfast bars, fast food, nothing).
“Protein Coffee” may sound a bit, um, you know, but trust me it’s pretty decent and a half. You’ve tried French Vanilla coffee before, right? Well, just take the French out of it and there you go.
So how do you make it? Glad you asked.
1) Brew coffee.
2) Pour coffe in your mug/cup of choice.
3) Add protein to your liking.
And there you have it, the best “on the go” weightloss breakfast.

Then I took control.
You can too, and it starts right here.
