Okay, I'm going to "Shake" things up a little this week, my 21st Week on Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure Diet Plan! This will be "Shake Week"! Kind of like Shark Week, but no Jaws jokes or scary stuff. And no, as my brother asked, it does not mean I am only eating shakes all week. What kind of diet does he think I'm on anyways? lol!
We are going to talk about all the great shakes on the BFC during Shake Week. Im kicking it off Monday with a really fun giveaway that the folks at Jay Robb provided. I'll also be reviewing protein powders, "things I put in my shake" and sharing my favorite shake recipes from the book and ones I just plain made up. I really want to encourage you all to share you favorites and failures too. I'll pick the a few of the best comments here and turn them into their own blog post at the end of the week called "Readers Favorite Shakes".
I hope this sounds fun to you all too! Dieting can be a real bore, so I thought this would shake things up a bit! (I know, its a great theme, right? teeheehee)
I'll start with my own "Shake Failure" story: Sister M got this brilliant, or so it seemed, idea to mix in unsweetened Kool-Aid with everything BFC related. We both started experimenting and I loved the idea of a Cherry Vanilla Shake. Pre-BFC I loved a Dairy Queen Chocolate Covered Cherry Blizzard, oh gawd. So I found a little packet of Cherry Kool-Aid and added it to a Vanilla Jay Robb. I looked at the packet quickly and there was only a tiny amount of powder in it, so I put the whole little packet in and turned on the blender. Quickly it turned bright pink and I could just smell screamed "Kool-Aid!". I pulled the packet out of the trash and realized it was to make a whole gallon of Kool-Aid. I sipped a bit and it was so disgusting and sweet (why?), I could actually taste it for days afterwards! Of course I took a photo, because that is what diet bloggers do, and I thought it would be SO good I'd have to share it with you all! NOT! Sadly the pink doesn't really come through in the photo like it did in person. Sister M and I slowed down our Kool-Aid experiments after that...
