How to Make a Healthy Meal Replacement Shake

More and more people have been asking if they can substitute a shake for a meal. I hear you! And my answer is…

Yes! You can substitute a collagen shake for a meal IF you follow the proper portions.

The cornerstone of both The 10-Day Belly Slimdown and the Bone Broth Diet is highly nutritious foods in the proper proportions. While most people look forward to their Bone Broth Diet meals or their 10-Day SLIM Plate Meal, we all have those days--days when we just don’t want to cook!

Luckily, my portions are super simple to follow and if you have my books you can see the portions I suggest for a meal are almost identical to portions I suggest for the perfect shake. While I wouldn’t recommend you replace EVERY meal with a collagen shake, here’s why I think it’s not a bad swap now and then.

A perfect meal on either of my diet plans is filled with fat-burning, wrinkle-blasting foods—a delicious protein, a serving of healthy fat, a rich supply of non-starchy veggies, and an occasional serving of fruit. Now, think about this:

These are the exact same ingredients, in the same portions, that you’ll find in my collagen shake recipes. These shakes feature lean collagen protein; a healthy fat; two handfuls of a non-starchy veggies; and a closed handful of berries to add a touch of sweetness. So a collagen shake is a perfect “swap” for any meal.

  • Breakfast: Whip up a shake in the morning for a super-quick, easy, and nutritious Bone Broth Diet-compliant breakfast.
  • Lunch: Pack a shake to go, for an office lunch that works with either my Bone Broth Diet or my 10-Day Belly Slimdown.
  • Dinner: If you’ve had a busy day and don't feel like cooking, make a dinner shake—compliant with both my Bone Broth Diet and my 10-Day Belly Slimdown.

I can’t tell you how freeing it is to have a delicious meal at my fingertips in minutes, especially when life gets hectic. It takes SO much of the pressure out of staying slim and healthy. So next time it’s mealtime and you don’t feel like cooking, go ahead and reach for a glass instead of a plate!

Keep thinking Big and living BOLD!
