Today I went and got myself a new blender! A pretty decently powerful one at that! It was way more expensive than I would've normally paid for a blender, but seeing as I had a voucher from a long while back, I thought I may as well use it!
For many people, eating is one of the most difficult parts to body building. Even more so than the training itself, because it is easy to remain focused and train hard for 45 minutes or an hour. Being able to eat well is something that needs to be managed all day every day. A number of people have told me that blending chicken breast is a great easy way to get quality protein, as an alternative to having to eat the same amount. Personally, I find it very difficult to eat the amount of protein that I should at every meal, because chicken breast tastes remarkably bland and uninteresting. Even more so if it is cooked in a way to maximise health. Because of this, it would obviously be much easier to drink the contents down in one hit and be done with it.
Now blended chicken sounds terrible... but I put it to the test tonight! After boiling the chicken until it was cooked, I put it into my new blender and let it work its magic! The first round came out looking much like sawdust :P so I figured I needed to add water to it. After adding water, it turned out much smoother, and I tried some of it. To be honest, it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It literally just tasted like boiled chicken breast. Bland but not particularly repulsive.
Next I got to adding a few more things to it to make it taste significantly better. I added some garlic, onion flakes, onion salt, some all purpose seasoning, and some carrots. Surprisingly, this time around when I tried it, it was much like drinking chicken soup, albeit a thick and chunky chicken soup. After adding a little bit more water and giving it another whirl, the result actually turned out quite good! It was almost just like a pasta sauce! I have to say I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It is probably still something that I will get sick of after having it too much, but for now, I think I've found a great way to get my required protein intake without having to choke down chunks of bland meat!
I guess I will also have to see whether or not this actually works in terms of improving body composition. All a work in progress! Can't wait to see the results in a couple of weeks. We are all actually thinking about doing the P90X workout program as well, the reviews for it have been awesome! If we can train to look like spartans in 90 days, then we are all keen to give it a go!
Has anyone tried drinking blended chicken juice? Or maybe tried the P90X workout program?
