It’s confession time. Two years ago you would have found me jogging three and a half miles at least four days a week, swimming a few miles at Gurney’s twice a week, and attending frequent yoga classes. But working as a chef is tiring and I’m gettin’ old. I slacked off on the exercise and the pounds crept up on me. This is all it took to lead me to my current status as a person with hypertension: a 15-pound weight gain and sheer laziness.
Dr. Oz Shake
This recipe is based on one I saw Dr. Oz make on his daytime TV show. There, I admitted it, I watched TV in the daytime. That’s why I need to diet.
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cup ice cubes
2 tsp. peanut butter
1 generous handful fresh spinach leaves
1 serving protein powder
