I like the protein smoothie. I only use Bannas but do use strawberries when in season.

If I wanted a recipe on healthier brownies or muffins I would look that up. If I am searching for recipes with protein, I want stuff that uses traditional protein in new ways.

I went for the hard-boiled egg salad lunch. But I'll need to avoid it in the future. It was a disaster for my IBS.

I always grab some fruit to snack on and carry two water bottles. I hate to get groceries, so I only go when absolutely necessary.
