A lot of celebrities swear by blended smoothies for breakfast, usually including leafy greens, fruits and assorted vitamins and supplements.
K-pop star Jackson Wang starts his days with a similar blender concoction, with one protein-rich addition: chicken.
In an interview with New York Magazine‘s The Strategist, the 25-year-old singer opines about his favourite things, one of which is his NutriBullet high-speed blender/mixer.
“I work out a lot and make sure I do my cardio every day. For exercising, you need to maintain your nutrition and proteins, and I’ll usually eat some chicken breast, a lot of greens, maybe some milk, and some fruits,” he explains.
“Then I just thought to myself, Why don’t I put everything in the blender? Because when you eat it, it goes into your stomach and it’s going to be the same anyways. So I use this blender to mix everything and drink it. My protein shake every morning is an orange, chicken breast, greens, maybe cabbage or spinach, and then an apple and banana.”
Wang knows what you’re thinking, but he maintains it’s not as revolting as it sounds.
“I know it might sound disgusting, but it’s actually a good smoothie,” he contends. “I have it first thing when I wake up.”
