I know what you mean, I've been studying this kind of thing for a while so it's not as complex to me as it might be for you. Still, new info is coming at us all the time and it can just get plain exhausting!

I avoid isolated proteins because of things I've read about them but I really don't know how harmful they are. I'm just very leery about foods being torn apart in order to satisfy some popular notion of "good health". These fadish things always seem to come to an end at some point and nature comes out the winner every time.

Proteins are chemically and mechanically "isolated" from their natural components in order to get more protein into a smaller bite, or spoonful. People can be very impressed by numbers--the more protein they see in a protein powder the better they think it is...oh well. Life goes on.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

interesting article, I thought. Sometimes I feel like there's so much info out there, I'm never sure which way to go.

I had wanted to mention earlier about "isolated protein" but thought maybe it would just be TMI so I didn't. but just now I came across an article by one of my favorite on-line health advisors (Dr. Ben Kim) that tells all about protein. In the article he mentions avoiding isolated proteins so I just thought I'd share it with you. Here's the link:

Hi--I have seen recipes with whey protein mixed in with cookies. You can make pancakes with them too. I typed in whey protein on the Spark recipes and a bunch of things popped up. Might be worth a look! Enjoy!

That's "whey" protein lol, though I like the pun, that's funny.

Yes, depending on the brand or type or flavorings in it you can add it to almost anything. I would stir it in already cooked oatmeal or sprinkle it on yogurt or add it to a smoothie.

My whey protein powder is neutral flavored and only sweetened with a tiny (almost unnoticeable) bit of stevia so it goes with anything. You can even sprinkle some on a creamed soup or gravy.

I bought some plain weigh protein to add an extra boost to some of my foods... Any suggestions? I would like to mix it in my oatmeal for one thing... Should I mix some in once it's cooked, or what?

Thanks
