Jeff’s High Fat, Low Carb Breakfast Shake

This entry is part 7 of 14 in the series Low Carb Pot Luck

Jeff and Breakfast Shake


Jeff’s breakfast shake was part of a pot luck conducted by the Boulder Very Low Carb Diabetes Support Group, where we encouraged people to bring “tasting” size portions with no more than 5 grams carb in an actual serving, and smaller samples still for more tastings.

    Hi, there, Mary from Nova Scotia. I’m personally clueless about shakes, but since you like Jeff Volek’s perspective, there might be more details in the books he’s co-authored with Steve Phinney. You can find out more at their website, the Art & Science of Low Carb.

    Hi there & greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada! :)) Thank you for sharing Jeff’s HF/LC shake recipe. I especially am grateful for the macronutrient breakdown, as I am trying hard to lose weight and need this for my “Atkins app”. 🙂
    *I have been tempted to try the “Ideal Protein” program (shakes, soups, etc.), but I really do not want to re-introduce soy protein into my diet. Thus, I am on a quest to build a great shake that has a lot of nutrition packed into it.
    *Do you happen to have a shake recipe with all micronutirents such as Vitamin & minerals, accounted for? You see, I just was researching a shake menu for myself and came across Dr. Wahl’s shake with Kale (as featured on Dave Asprey’s site also). I do not wish to introduce kale or spinach into a shake, as I don’t believe calcium/magnesium supplements should need to be added to a food to offset any “bad” effects from the kale and/or spinach. So…I am searching for a highly nutritious HF/LC shake that has the nutrition profile of the famous “Ideal Protein” shake, but perhaps not vegetables added to it. Thanks!
