Coconut Milk Even Lower Carb Shake

This is a lower carb version of my Coconut Milk Low Carb Shake.  This makes a thinner, less sweet shake, so feel free to put less coconut milk in if you want to keep it thick and add some sweetener if that doesn’t cause you to stall.  Make sure to adjust the carb count accordingly.

4 net carbs

3T ground flax
1/2 cup unsweetened refrigerated coconut milk
1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1 scoop zero carb protein powder
4 ice cubes

  1. Blend.
  2. Drink it.

 

Adventures in Vitamining – Part 2

As promised, below I am listing the vitamins and supplements I purchased to fill in the gaps in my daily multivitamin and protein supplements.  My goal is to replicate what Dr. Atkins considered vital, except for a few supplements he suggested specifically for conditions I don’t have or supplements that have been recently proven not to work.

Disclaimer: I am an Amazon associate, meaning I would get a nominal amount from Amazon.com if you purchased the item I link to; however, I have no affiliation to Walmart.com.  I did not buy these for myself via Amazon.com or Walmart.com so I could make money.  I picked these by determining the best price while retaining quality, and took a chance on a few brands I’ve never heard of due to some great reviews across the web.
