Waldorf salad doesn't need mayo or even yogurt to taste fantastic. Just fresh chopped organic apples with skins or peeled conventional, organic celery (celery is on the bad list for USDA detected levels of pesticides right now), walnuts & raisins are awesome. I like to put a squeeze of lemon into 2 cups of water and place the chopped apples in there as I chop the rest of the ingredients. Just drain the apples don't rinse them and they won't turn brown. Mix everything and let sit in the fridge for several hours to marry the flavors. The sweet chewiness of the raisins really make the tangy crisp apples pop.

Oh yeah, I do that sort of thing all the time. Even this morning I mixed my own drained yogurt (same as Greek but better) with some coconut milk, tahini, and some chopped nuts. I have, in the past mixed in protein powders and, you are right, it's tasty but I just don't do protein powders much any more. My concoction probably would have tasted even better with a little of that but I didn't think about it this time. I added 4 drops of liquid stevia extract for sweetness.
You can make excellent "cookie" balls using coconut oil, nut butter, protein powder, chopped nuts (or granola, or rolled oats, or shredded coconut, or all four)
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

I decided to try mixing my vanilla whey protein in plain fat free Greek yogurt (I use Fage 0%). It tastes like cake batter!!! I love love love it! It has about the same consistency as well. I also put some raspberries on top.
