SHAKLEE PROTEIN BARS

Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes

Yield: 1-9 x 13 inch dish cut into squares

  • 1 cup Shaklee Instant Protein Soy Mix*(Sometimes I use 1/2 cup of the Instant and 1/2 cup of the Shaklee Cinch)
  • 1 ¼ cup oats
  • ½ cup flax seed or flax meal
  • ½ cup shredded wheat, granola, or more oats

Optional Add-Ins—Add some or all:

  • 1 cup nuts—slivered almonds, walnuts, etc.
  • 6 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Organic Chocolate or Carob Chips
  • 1 cup Honey or Agave **
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter or Almond Butter***

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.  In sauce pan, bring Agave to a boil then immediately remove from heat and add Peanut or Almond Butter and Vanilla. Stir until combined.  Pour Almond/Peanut Butter mixture into bowl of dry ingredients and stir till combined. You may need to use your hands.  Press down into ungreased 9 x 13 in. glass dish.  Cool in the refrigerator.  Cut into squares.  You also can roll the mix into balls if you prefer and then cool them.

Variations:

  • Add Fruit to dry mix— ½ cup chopped dates, raisins, cranberries, or cherries
  • Add Nuts to dry mix— ½ cup almonds, walnuts, pecans, or other nuts
  • Add Cocoa powder to dry mix—6 Tbsp.
  • Add ½ cup Chocolate Chips ON TOP of mix after it is pressed into pan. Turn oven on Broil. Place bars into oven for 1 minute. Remove and use a knife to spread melted chocolate chips around on top of bars.  Refrigerate.

* I use the Shaklee Instant Protein Soy Mix for my bars. You can use any of the Shaklee protein powders for this recipe and it will come out pretty close to the same. The Instant Soy Mix Protein is flavorless and is a substitute for flour in other recipes. I keep this on hand all the time and throw it in pancake, cookie or other yummy recipes and cut back on the flour and carbs!

I also have used in this recipe: Shaklee Energizing Soy Vanilla, Shaklee Energizing Soy Chocolate, and both flavors of the Shaklee Cinch for weight loss: Cinch Chocolate and Cinch Vanilla. I love using Shaklee Cinch shake mix because its powered by Leucine**** to help preserve muscle while you loose weight.

If you choose to use Shaklee Instant Protein, your entire dish or protein bars will have 120 g of Protein that offers all of the amino acids, especially the 9 essential amino acids that your body does not produce on it’s own.

** Agave is the ideal sweetener because it does not raise your Glucose level like honey does, which will help your insulin level not to rise as much.

***If you use Almond Butter(I prefer) instead of Peanut Butter, you may want to cut back on the agave or it will taste too sweet!  If you only have peanut butter, try to avoid PB with added sugar or preservatives.  Get the Natural PB or Organic.

****Leucine helps with the regulation of blood-sugar levels, the growth and repair of muscle tissue (such as bones, skin and muscles), growth hormone production, wound healing as well as energy regulation.

Exploring Longevity is the ultimate scientific quest.  Scientists are spending billions in research dollars to help us feel younger and live longer.

LIVE TO 150: CAN YOU DO IT? –Barbara Walters Special, April 2008

CAN RED WINE HELP YOU LIVE FOREVER?–Fortune, January 19, 2007

How would you like to feel 25 years younger and live 25 years longer.  Doesn’t everyone dream of feeling younger and living longer?  In laboratories around the world, scientists are attempting to stop the aging clock-or at least slow it down.

VIVIX: A REVOLUTIONARY BREATHROUGH IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CELLULAR AGING

microscopeThe scientist at Shaklee, the number one nutritional company in the U.S., have worked to create and isolate a unique profile of polyphenols shown in laboratory studies to fight cellular aging.  Not only have they filed for multiple patents to protect this innovaton, they have assured that Shaklee will have the entire output of the largest and best growers of one of the key ingredients, so that they can deliver these exclusive benefits to you!

**3,000 GLASSES OF RED WINE: redwinelarge

A 30-day supply of VIVIX delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 3,000 glasses of red wine, and VIVIX ingredients are 10x more powerful in slowing a key mechanism of aging than resveratrol alone.

**2,000 RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS:

Just one of the ingredients in VIVIX alone has been referenced in over 2,000 research publications, including multiple studies conducted by Harvard University, at the National Institute of Aging, at the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institute of Environmental Science.

***10X MORE POWERFUL:

The VIVIX ingredients are more powerful than resveratrol alone in slowing a key mechanism of aging–the AGE protein formation.

FIGHTS CELLULAR AGING AND MORE:

  1. Protect and repair cellular DNA—Every day, every cell in your body is bombarded by up to a million DNA-damaging assaults.  These assaults can damage the cell’s genetic database, creating a “typo” that may compromise cell function and longevity.
  2. Positively impact genetic regulators—Gentetic regulators contribute to age-related cellular deterioration.
  3. Promote mitochondrial biogenesis—Mitochondria in our cells create energy we can’t live without.  As mitochondrial efficiency decreases, cell function declines.
  4. Slow AGE protein formation—Excess accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE) can cause cellular damage that can compromise cell integrity and longevity.

After you read the article below, keep reading to find one thing that has helped many children with ADHD. I have more info if you are interested!

Ritalin ADHD Drug Linked to 500 Percent Increased Risk of Sudden Death in Children

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

June 16 2009

(NaturalNews) Just how dangerous are the adhd-drugs-pharmaceutical-774231amphetamine stimulant drugs prescribed for children with so-called ADHD? According to scientific research funded by the FDA and the National Institute of Mental Health, drugs such as Ritalin increase the risk of sudden death by five hundred percent among children and teens.

In these cases of sudden death, the child suddenly collapses and dies, only to be discovered later by parents or siblings. That’s what happened to Matthew Hohmann in 2004, and according to this new research, it keeps happening to more and more children at a rate that’s 500 percent higher than would be considered typical for children of a similar age and health status.

ADHD drugs like Ritalin are, of course, amphetamine stimulants. They used to be sold on the street as “speed,” but now they’re prescribed by psychiatrists to children after a subjective diagnosis of a fictitious disease: ADHD — a “disorder” which has no measurable biological symptoms whatsoever.

Interestingly, the FDA banned ephedra, an herbal stimulant, after a handful of consumers died from consuming huge amounts of the herb in a desperate effort to lose weight. In that case, in banning the herb, the FDA announced adhd3“the risks outweigh the benefits,” declaring that “ephedra is not safe at any dose.”

In great contrast to that, even as children are literally dropping dead after taking ADHD drugs, the FDA is now insisting “the benefits are worth the risks.”

But what benefits, exactly, are they talking about? There are no trusted scientific studies whatsoever showing ADHD drugs like Ritalin have any long-term positive effect on children. In fact, the available studies show that ADHD drugs stunt the physical growth of children while impairing brain development. Children who take these drugs, in other words, are not merely at a 500 percent increased risk of sudden death; they are almost assured to be stunted in their brain and body growth by this dangerous amphetamine stimulant drug.

The only real benefits to ADHD drugs, it turns out, are the financial benefits to the drug companies. With hundreds of millions of doses of ADHD drugs sold around the world each year, Big Pharma is raking in the profits while children are dropping dead in their own homes. So when the FDA says “the benefits are worth the risks,” what they mean is that the financial benefits to the drug companies are worth the risks to the lives of children.

Pharmaceuticals pose an imminent danger to our children

When parents take their children to psychiatrists and are told to put them on drugs like Ritalin, most parents believe what the doctors say. They believe the FDA wouldn’t approve a drug so dangerous that it could kill their child without warning. And they believe the drug companies would never sell products that harm people.

But those beliefs are foolish. In reality, the FDA, the drug companies and the psychiatrists are all working in collusion, knowingly pushing dangerous, deadly drugs onto families for the sole purpose of generating profits. While children suffer and die, they cash in on the ADHD delusion, first by promoting a fictitious disease and then later through high-profit pharmaceutical quackery.

And yet, astonishingly, the mainstream meus-congress-j001dia says nothing. Senators and Congresspeople remain silent. Corrupt, dishonest psych doctors keep pushing the pills and pharmacists keep filling the bottles while children die, day after day, from the very drugs they were told would help them.

The mass drugging of our own children is the greatest unacknowledged crime of our time. It is a modern-day chemical holocaust being perpetrated by our own health care system!

Today, the pharmaceutical industry operates as an organized drug ring, inventing fictitious diseases, then cashing in on the “treatments” for those diseases even though the treatments ultimately harm far more people than they conceivably help. To further boost their profits, the drug companies offer free “screening” — based on an utterly unscientific tests rigged to label virtually everyone with ADHD (adults included).

moneyThe entire ADHD scene is a circus of junk science, corporate profiteering and FDA betrayal. If it wasn’t so tragic and deadly, it would be downright laughable. Yet, sadly, the mass chemical poisoning of our children continues today, and those who profit from it continue to call it “treatment.”

SO WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?  IS THERE ANYTHING OUT THERE THAT WILL HELP WITH ADHD THAT WON’T ALSO HARM THE CHILD?

ADHD vs Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein
 
About 5 months ago, a mother who had just moved into town called me on the phone.  They had bought their home from a faithful Shaklee user and were so impressed with how clean it was when they began to move in that she called the former owner to ask what kind of cleaners she had been using.  The former owner told her it was Shaklee and told her she needed to call Stan Pulliam!
 
This mother called me up to find out how to buy the Shaklee cleaners.  She came over to our office, signed up as a member, signed up for the 21 Tape program, and bought all the cleaners.  She also started telling me about her 11 year old son.  He is ADHD and she homeschools him.  He had tremendous difficulty staying focused on his school work, and she would have to sit right there with him for about 6 hours every day to help him keep focused enough to make it through his each day’s work.
 
They had taken him to all manner of doctors and specialists to find help.
 
I suggested he needed to start on at least the Shaklee Energizing Soy Protein and shared with her the testimony of another local boy about the same age whose academic work had improved dramatically just by starting on the Shaklee protein.
 
She decided to give it a try on the basis of the money-back guarantee and took home a can of the Cocoa Energizing Soy Protein.  She gave him a serving that night and again the next morning for breakfast.
 
She called me up the next afternoon and was absolutely amazed at the difference she saw in his ability to focus on his work THAT VERY FIRST DAY!  Her husband, who is a pharmacist at the local hospital, was also amazed.
 
Over the course of the next month, he showed steady improvement, and she had to spend less and less time each day sitting right with him to keep him focused.  Finally, after a month or so, he told her one day that he felt he could concentrate and do better work if she wasn’t sitting there distracting him!
 
The mother is thrilled, and father, mother, and son have all become big Shaklee users.  The boy is now getting after his mother from time to time to make sure she too is drinking her Shaklee protein!
