if you're having one for breakfast, adding a small amount of oats with blueberries, apple and a scoop of protein creates a really filling meal

Apple, orange and a scoop of chocolate protein powder makes a yummy jaffa flavoured snack smoothie...

Here's my favourite smoothie:

Orange/pomegranate/cranberry/apple juice (just one of them)
Almond/hemp/coconut milk (just one of them)
Protein powder (hemp or pea if you're avoiding soya),
A greens/vitalise powder sachet (there are various brands - don't think we're meant to mention them on here though)
Heaped tablespoon of ground flaxseeds
Some frozen berries.

If you can find it, you can get dairy-free, soy-free yoghurt. There's one in the UK, which is based on pea protein but I don't know where else it's available. Yoghurt will of course make your smoothie thicker than just using milk but if you want it to be soy and lactose free, you might not be able to find a yoghurt. Unless someone makes lactose free dairy yoghurt these days. I know there are several lactose free milks available.

I love the idea of Slimfast. I just mix it up real quick the night before and then when I'm ready for lunch the next day, I just shake it up and drink it. It's especially a great concept for the days where I'm working through my lunch or I have errands to run during lunch and don't have enough time to eat. However, it's not working for me. I'm sugar crashing HARD about an hour after and I feel like I'm starving by the time I get home from work. Oh and not to mention, it gives me horrible stomach cramps from the lactose and soy.

Maybe smoothies would be a better option? I don't even know where to begin though. I need something that's going to hold me over during that 5 hour window between lunch and getting home, not put me on a sugar rollercoaster, doesn't contain any artificial sugar, soy or lactose. Suggestions?
