I have been doing a fair amount of research while I work in a produce-department lately.
I am considering doing a partial Vegetarian-Diet in September. The idea is to create a shake/smoothie that the following ingredients:
Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, and Cherries for berries in general. These 4 items are high in fast adsorbing carbs, and they are all fairly high in Vitamin C which acts as a antioxidant in conjunction with decent levels of potassium.
4-scoops of whey protein powder, 8-oz water, as much ice to fill 48-ounces in a blender.
My idea is to improve upon this recipe by adding in some raisins, and some quinoa. The raisins are calorie heavy, with some iron and heavy carbs. The quinoa is a grain that is carb-heavy and protein heavy.
I will talk with a dietitian about the quinoa, my assumption right now is that the carbs from this item are slower absorption ones compared to carbs that come from sugar.
My overall idea is to produce a 48-ounce drink that I can cut into 4-portions each of which are above 1200-calories each.
I think if I could get the vitamins,carbs,protein, and calorie intake needed to go through a rigourous day of training in 4-small pop-can size meals this would be rather beneficial.
Would this be illogical to approach it this way?
I would be training 4-days/week with work being over the weekend. During Friday-Sunday I would have meats.
Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
