Protein Booster

Protein Booster


Hi! I’m Dr. Tina Marcantel and today I want
to talk to you about a delicious protein booster. These are our ingredients. It’s very simple:
you just measure out, you mix it together, and you enjoy it. Right here we have yogurt,
and I have chosen Fage yogurt because it’s very creamy and it’s delicious. I measure
out 8 ounces of the yogurt. Then we have the peanut powder. I use the Jif, you can use
other peanut powders, but the reason I like the Jif is because it only has 1 sugar per
serving. I use 2 tablespoons of this peanut powder. I also use about 6 ounces of fruit.
I’m going to put apples because I like the crunchy texture in my yogurt and I’m going
to put pineapple, because pineapple has a lot of vitamin C, it has bromelain, which
is a very good anti-inflammatory, and it’s very sweet, it’s a natural sweetener. We also
have stevia here to put a few drops of stevia in there if you want to. Now, if your fruit
is sweet enough like I choose today pineapple, which is very sweet this time of year, I won’t
need much stevia at all. The other thing that we’re going to add in here is one tablespoon
of MCT oil. And I love this stuff. This stuff is wonderful; it’s a brain and body fuel.
Our brain is made mostly of fatty tissue and it needs good oils and this is a really good
oil for our body and our brain. So let’s mix this together! And like I said, that yogurt
is delicious and it’s very, very creamy. Sometimes what I like to do is take a little bit of
the extra pineapple juice that is with the pineapple and I like to add it to here. It
makes it even creamier. And of course it adds to the sweetness. Measure, mix, and enjoy!
That’s delicious. You can use this as a breakfast meal, you can use it as a snack, and sometimes
I even use it as a dessert. Enjoy!
