I have seen it at Walmart before-but, It is in a big container and if I don't care for it I don't want to be stuck with a whole bunch of it. It does not come in samples or in single serving packets.

Not familiar with Unjury. I used Isopure chocolate whey protein. It is difficult to find these days but can be ordered online.

Anybody try the Unjury chicken soup?? Does it taste OK?
I want to pick up the Unjury Unflavored Protein Powder so I could add that to just about anything and I want to try the Unjury Protein chicken soup packets.
I need to start collecting differant sample packs etc for when I get the surgery coming up. I want to try and get the best tasting for the cheapest price.

My nutritionist recommended (BODY FORTRESS + benifiber) but I haven't tried it. I still have some Shakeology left but he says there are too many carbs in it. I'm 3 months away from RNY, still have to lose 20 pounds before procedure :)

I drank a lot of Isopure chocolate powdered protein with ice blended in the blender with a dollop of lite cool whip. Kind of like a milkshake.

I am struggling with the protein drinks too. But I did get a "gold card" from GNC and like the GNC Pro Performance AMP Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60. It has 60 grams of protein.

I get really tired of shakes though. I like the Isopure Zero Carb drinks. They have 40 grams of protein and come in Blue Raspberry, Grape, Tropical punch and Orange. I like the Blue Raspberry and the Orange. They are mildly flavored and I have added Crystal Light and general add ice.

I will be glad to get to pureed foods.

Look into GNC. They USED to have a membership card you could buy for a set price per year. Then during the first week of the month they'd give you a discount. They would also allow you to return anything you didn't like. If there is a GNC near you it might be just what you need until you find something.

The other option is boneless skinless chicken breast. Half of one really packs a lot of protein. Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are high in protein too.

My current favorites are: ProtiDiet Hot Cocoa, Premium Ready-to-drink Chocolate (found at Sam's Club), and Health Smart Hot Chocolate (Variety Pack). I actually like the ProtiDiet Hot Cocoa made into a protein pudding by only adding a small amount of water and mixing it really thick and adding in a bit of slivered almonds. YUM! This helps fill me up too, especially when I'm wanting something dessert-like when my husband is eating his sugar-filled desserts.

Nashua Nutrition (.com) is a great place to find a large variety of proteins... they also offer many of them in single servings so that you can try some before you buy a larger quantity.

I really LOVE Synth-6 protein powder. It's available at GNC and Vitamin World. It's a little more expensive but it is SOOOO worth it. It ends up being around $1 per serving...not too bad when you think of it that way. It comes in lots of different flavors. It doesn't taste "chemically". Sometimes I mix the strawberry with some really strawberries and a few ice cubes. It makes a DELICIOUS strawberry shake AND it's good for you!! I use the Vanilla and mix it with some ice and instant coffee for a coffee shake....mmmmmmmmm...AWESOME on a hot, summer day!

Glad you are feeling better Karly. Like your attitude about the meats. Your tummy will become less sensitive in time. For now, you can use that sensitivity to YOUR ADVANTAGE because you won't want so many things. In a few months you can always try a bite or two of chicken and see how it sets in your tummy. Hope you are fading away to a mere nothing, lol!

Hugs!
