Mind if I add a suggestion?
Replace the Hershey's syrup (and all its non-beneficial ingredients) with chocolate Ovaltine instead.
You'll get the chocolate milk effect + a load of vitamins and nutrients.
...and it mixes better.
2500m of climbing...
...and this at the end of it.
Rice with toasted cashew/almond mixture, soy sauce and sea salt
Scrambled eggs (2) with chives
Bitter melon with garlic (left over)
A handful of Basil leaves on top, grated Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil over the lot.
Then a nice big slice of papaya.
I usually have some variation of this with the components dependent on what's in the fridge and ready in the garden.
That holds me for a couple of hours, then I have a small bowl of oatmeal with banana.
For days of less work, just a chocolate milk and PB/banana toast, or a mung bean shake with almonds.
AND LOTS OF WATER.
Ovaline sucks and is bad for you,
Nestle Quick is bad for you,
Hershey chocolate syrup is also bad
the obvious choice if you are a chocolate connoisseur you would add 100% cocoa.
just drink the milk plain.
Alternatively you can add 100% pure honey or 100% maple syrup to the milk and fore-go the sugar again warmed.
Maple syrup is more expensive than honey and honey is more expensive than cocoa depending on which brand you buy.
But just buy the cheapest brand where the ingredients are either cocoa, honey or maple.
