Frequently Asked Questions


With cold weather upon us, can you suggest something hot that would have the nutrients that your shake has but would be more welcoming during the winter?

I agree with you that cold shakes on cold mornings also leave me needing a way to warm up (instead of always wearing silky long underwear from Labor Day to Memorial Day here in the upper Midwest, which really works for me!). I still do make my shakes most mornings during the winter but also brew a large pot of green tea to drink at the same time. I also make granola (http://cancerrd.com/recipes/granola_soy_flaxseed1.htm) that has soy, flaxseed, and dried fruit among other ingredients, which I sometimes have to eat in the morning along with some OJ, yogurt, and again, hot tea. Sometimes (not often) I will have a soymilk latte in the morning and then figure out how to increase my fruit, veggie, and flaxseed intake during the remainder of the day.

I have not come up with a hot shake recipe, although I am a big fan of hot soups, which could also be good breakfast foods to have along with a shake. One suggestion might be the Curried Butternut Squash Soup (http://cancerrd.com/recipes/curriedbutternutsquash1.htm) eaten with some flaxseed muffins like Banana Walnut Flaxseed Muffins (http://cancerrd.com/recipes/banana_walnut_flax_muffins1.htm)

Hope that helps a bit. If you devise a hot soy shake recipe, please let me know!
