LaVern’s Nutritional Journey

After pregnancy, it was extremely difficult to find the time to workout like I used to.  Of course, I would take the walk around the neighborhood, the runs in the parks, and visit the gym BUT… the weight was stubborn coming off!

Today, I still continue the Nutritional Plan and see an increased improvement in fat loss and muscle gain.  I have and will continue to enjoy my journey and share my success with others. I am loving every minute of helping others achieve their own WEIGHT LOSS AND NUTRITIONAL GOALS!  Don’t wait until the NEW YEAR to make a NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION.  Start TODAY..

Shake of the Day – Hot Cocoa

Hot Cocoa

As temperatures drop, your drive for results shouldn’t! Try any of your favorite shakes served warm! There are a few different ways to heat them up but be careful when blending in a confined single serving blender as they will build pressure and can explode once they are opened. Try this recipe for a delicious Hot Cocoa.

2 Scoops of Chocolate Formula 1 Mix

1 Scoop of Chocolate Protein Drink Mix

Add a few chocolate chips and marshmallows if you’d like!

Enjoy!

Try this recipe and let us know what you think. And if you come up with your own and want to share it, shoot it over to us and we might feature it on the site. The bottom line is these shakes are quick, easy, and healthy, so there’s no longer an excuse to stop at the drive-thru anymore. If you have any questions or if you would like to share anything with us, please leave a comment below.
