disappointed, I thought that was a slang way for writing booze. Now I'm guessing you just meant to write boost...

Favorite weight gainer? That would be any vegan-friendly buffet, my old go-to was always Indian (I can put down 2500-3500 calories in one sitting there, no problem!), definitely helped me during that year where I put on nearly 20 lbs, but I can't say all that weight was muscle by any means ;)

Haha, I thought it was meant to say 'boobs' :D

Protein powder (I use pea protein isolate)
1 x banana + handful of mixed berries
1 x tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
300-400ml oat milk
1 x tbsp LSA

I'm guessing you have this shake just after your workout, daily?
I workout first thing in the morning (5:45am) and then I clean-up and go to work. So, I don't have the option of blending something fresh. So here's what I've been making before I leave the house, but drinking after my workout...

Protein powder (pea, hemp, rice with chia seeds)
8 oz of soymilk or almond milk
1 x tbsp of flax oil
2 x tbsp soy-based acidophilus

Thoughts?

Yeah, that shake looks good Jim although I'm not personally a fan of flax oil.

I usually have a shake most days but I don't stress over it if I don't, sometimes I'll have one after my workout but again I don't feel that I have to have it.
