I must say, I make a wicked good protein smoothie with
diet cranberry juice,
pasteurized egg whites,
and sometimes 1/2 bananananana.
I have one a week or so as a post workout snack or as lunch with a piece of whole wheat toast with 1 T peanut butter.
Today I did the same thing but added
3 oz silken tofu,
some leftover cooked beets,
and about a cup of baby spinach leaves.
It wasn't yucky but it wasn't my favorite thing.
I will keep trying (have to use up the tofu, anyway).
Next time I will add ginger and some kale leaves or Swiss chard.
Probably don't need so much protein- if I use tofu, probably don't need the egg whites and the yogurt.
I must say I felt VERY full for hours afterwards-
is that a good thing
