Fridays in my house are typically a low-food affair. Rather, most of the really simple to prepare things are gone and any meat is thawing or in the long water bath. If you’ve just come home from bouldering, as I have, what are you going to make that is full of thick, tasty, nutritious goodness? A Gironda shake, of course.According to “Vince Gironda: Legend and Myth,” Mr. Gironda was a huge fan of a shake consisting of eggs, protein, and cream. He used it as a staple of his athletes muscle gain cycles to get the extra calories and fat they needed to grow. Fairly straightforward affair:
- 4 oz heavy whipping cream
- 2 eggs
- 2 scoops of protein powder
- Ice to thicken
Toss in your favorite blender, stamp it down a couple times to make sure the ice is crushed, and drink straight from the blender cup (to annoy your significant other, like I do). Here are the facts:
724 calories, 60g protein, 4g carbs, 52g fat
Fills you up, never lets you down. Enjoy!
