Ed’s Breakfast Drink Recipe – Originally published in 2018, updated February, 2024 

My Daily Anti-Aging Meal

One of the mainstays philosophically in my approach to vibrant health and setting up graceful aging is my breakfast drink. I have spoken of this concept as one of the most important underpinnings of success in regard to my longevity, health, and blood chemistry.   

I have witnessed the positive impact on my body and thousands of others when the first meal of the day is set up for success. It does, however, require the ingredients to be the purest, cleanest available.  More importantly, it demands the perfect ratios of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. This we call the Macros of food regarding the levels of protein, fats, and carbohydrates.   

Starting the Day With Great Blood Chemistry

When you start the blood chemistry with perfect macros early in the day, you set your body up to lower food cravings, support muscle health, and balance blood sugar. I’ve observed so many of my client’s blood work significantly improve just using my breakfast drink alone. I also realize the negative effects on blood chemistry, food cravings, and loss of energy when improper macros begin the day.

Poor Macros = Faster Aging

Once blood chemistry spirals with the improper choice of breakfast foods it will continue for the entire day regardless of your food choices as the day proceeds.  Unhealthy choices start the day always around carbohydrates and often low protein levels in the foods.  I firmly believe this speeds up the aging process exponentially and creates cravings.

My goal with my breakfast drink is to stay under ten carbohydrates. This plan combined with high protein and healthy fat is a high-octane fuel that can set everyone up for far better odds for increased health plus a fitter-looking body that you cannot even imagine.

Try Bluebonnet Whey Protein

The Full Breakfast Drink Plan

I do my breakfast drink 5 days per week. On weekends I allow more flexibility with food choices since I am not consuming my breakfast drink.  However, on every trip out of town, I will take my breakfast drink with me even on those weekends to prevent getting stuck somewhere with no healthy food choices.   

If you have followed my writings and videos over the many years you may notice I tweak this drink from time to time.   Sometimes manufacturers discontinue a product, or I find price increases not acceptable. Quite often, I learn something new nutritionally that is important to pass along. I do demand certain requirements for this drink which are: 

  • no artificial sweeteners
  • no artificial colorings
  • tested to ensure no hormones
  • non-Gmo,
  • soy-free,
  • gluten-free
  • mixes easily with a spoon.   


My current recipe for my lifesaving breakfast drink:

    • 1 1/2 scoops of Bluebonnet Whey Protein.  (Garden of Life or Truvani for plant-based protein)
    •  1 heaping teaspoon of organic coconut oil or MCT oil. (Since I am using a shaker to blend, I simply add One Tablespoon of MCT or melted organic coconut into my throw-away cup instead of the shaker.  It is far too difficult to wash the shaker and get it clean if the oil is added.  If using a blender, putting all ingredients together is the best method.)
    • 1 tablespoon of organic psyllium or hemp fiber
    • Cold water to desired consistency


For those seeking more greens, this is a good time to add organic greens but that is something I am not presently doing. Cold water is my liquid of choice as one of the most important goals is almost zero carbohydrates.


The fat from the oil is vital to your success.  Without it the protein itself will not keep appetite down nor allow sustained energy. Be cautious with MCT oil as excessive amounts will create loose stools.   


Rarely over my 45 years assisting so many clients at Nutrition World have I found something as powerful as this drink! 


Stay on my drink recipe for 6 weeks, and I assure you that results will be seen. The drink by itself will be life-changing if nothing else is done. However, combining this program with proper exercise, adequate sleep, eating the proper foods starting at lunch, consuming the proper nutrients, and holding a positive outlook for your life will advance your future health and well-being as you have never dreamed possible.
