Getting Started on the Xocai High-Antioxidant Protein Shake

YouTube Preview Image

I have found that I am asked similar questions every time someone wants to try the Xocai High-Antioxidant Protein Shake, whether they are in Atlanta, Georgia or New York.  Instead of re-sending the same old email every time, I decided to record a short video with my thoughts and post it so everyone can use it to get started.

I recommend that when you get up in the morning, the first thing you do is drink a big glass of water (we are usually dehydrated first thing in the morning).  Then have your Xocai High-Antioxidant Protein Shake a little before you start getting hungry.  For me, that is after about an hour.  If I am going to exercise that morning, I try to fit it in before I have my shake because I LOVE to follow my morning workout with this as a breakfast/recovery drink.

If you are really seeking serious weight loss, and not just losing a few pounds or inches, let’s talk because I would like to plug you into the whole wellness program and let you work with someone who has lost serious weight on this shake as your accountability coach.

The reason I suggest you try some different ways to make your shake is because I actually didn’t like it at first.  I kept trying it plain.  It is just too Extreme Chocolate for me that way.  I had to play around with it until I found some things I like to mix mine with.  I can’t wait for you to find how you like it best and let me know!  My favorite way to drink the shake:

8 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
5 almonds
2 small spoonfuls of raw coconut
2 scoops of the shake powder (level and fluffed- don’t pack it down)
5-6 ice cubes

Stick it in a blender and drink it on down. YUMMM!  It is my on-the-go breakfast every morning.  It totally ROCKS!  If you want to see a bunch of fun recipes, go to http://www.mxicorp.com/xproteinmeal/.  Scroll down to download the pdf of recipes, but just get creative and have fun with it!

Lee Reich Showing How 1.5 lb. of Raw Spinach is the Equivalent to 3 Xocai Chocolates

On our recent road trip to Birmingham, Alabama, Libby Patrick and I presented at a Chocolate Tasting with Lee Reich’s team.  We met so many awesome people who are interested in antioxidants/health and wealth in Birmingham!  They served strawberries drizzled with melted Xocai Nuggets and the most AMAZING oatmeal shortbread cookies with Xocai Power Squares as the chocolate chips.  I just wanted to share that recipe with you in case you want to try them.  They melt in your mouth!

OATMEAL SHORTBREAD with Xocai Power Squares

2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped Xocai Power Squares

1.  Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle and mix until creamed.
2.  Add the oats, flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate and mix until just combined.
3.  Divide dough into three parts and roll each part into a log on a sheet of wax paper.
4.  Shape each log in a circle, oval or square.  Wrap and/or roll each log in wax paper, place in an airtight bag or container and refrigerate overnight (or several hours or several days).
5.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6.  Slice cookies thin and bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheets, 12 to 15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
7.  Cool on the cookie sheet and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Note:  The cookies freeze well.
