Food For Fitness

Ask Glen!

Q.Glen, How can I add more punch to my Protein Shakes?

A. Shake Up Your Smoothies with 5 easy upgrades for protein shakes

Evaporated milk

A half cup of condensed milk adds nearly 400 milligrams (mg) of calcium. Stronger bones mean a stronger frame to hang muscle tissue on.

Vanilla extract

It's the secret ingredient that made nearly everything your mom baked taste better. A couple of drops will do the same for your smoothie.


Canned pumpkin is already cooked to a smooth consistency, so it slips easily into a protein shake. And a cup of it delivers 7 grams (g) of fiber, the crucial nutrient that most muscle-building, high-protein diets lack.

Dropping 1 tablespoon of flaxseed (available at any health-food store) into the blender adds nearly 1.5 g omega-3 fatty acids, which lock protein into your muscle fibers. The seeds' nutty flavor goes particularly well with chocolate and peanut-butter smoothies.


A cup of frozen peaches ups your shake's vitamin C count by 235 mg. That'll boost blood levels of cytokines-- compounds that keep colds and flu at bay. You can't work out when you're sick.

Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program. Please consult your physician !

Wishing You A Healthy Life Style!
