Topical Mango Madness Smoothie
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 passion juice
1/2 tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/3 cup Naturade NRG Protein Booster (Vanilla)
Naturade NRG Protein Booster is a time-tested combination of soy, milk and egg protein that supplies the complete amino acid profile your body needs to support the growth of bones and muscles. This all-natural protein blend assures that you get all the essential amino acids your body can not produce on its own, in just the right combination. You need Naturade NRG if you’re not getting enough dairy and egg products in your regular diet, especially if you’re also avoiding cholesterol and fat. In 1950, Naturade pioneered in promoting the health benefits of soy protein, with its NRG formula. Now, the Food and Drug Administration has agreed that 25 grams of soy protein daily may reduce the risk of heart disease when used in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Over 40 clinical studies have shown that soy protein helps lower total and LDL cholesterol. One serving of Naturade NRG Protein Booster supplies almost two thirds of the soy protein you need daily to fight America’s number 1 killer of both men and women. Our Identity Preservation (IP) process assures you that the genetic integrity of our soybeans has been maintained throughout planting, harvesting and processing—just as nature intended. And Naturade NRG is formulated with high grade soy protein isolate without the extra fat or aftertaste of whole soybeans so you can confidently add protein to the foods and drinks you prepare with no carbohydrates and no added sugar.
You can also use Naturade NRG Protein Booster in cooking to add protein to sauces, soups, stews and casseroles or to cereals, pancakes and muffins. Vanilla Flavor has little taste so you can add it to most foods.

Eating a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day.
Skipping breakfast is a common strategy for losing weight, but not a smart one. Many people believe that they will lose weight if they skip meals, but that just isn’t true; the body expects to be refueled a few times a day, starting with a healthy breakfast.
