Not corn flakes!: I don't consider corn flakes a healthy diet choice, esp. If not organic as they are genetically modified and contain bt toxin .

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?

Protein and sugar: After a hard work out your body needs protein and some sugar (glucose). You should try not to eat fat and /or a huge amount of sugar.
