I have been paying more attention to protein in the last couple of weeks, sometimes it is low because protein is mostly higher calorie. I have Incorporated some snacks like sardines, beef jerky, nuts and cheese for added protein. I think I will they the muffins too, not much into smoothies, I would rather eat my food then drink it up all mushy.

to those who are complaining that muffins and tacos are meal sized things, do you realize that the muffins are only 1 inch in diameter, and the chicken tacos are 3 bites? Those are snacks.

These would be meals for me. I eat a few nuts, an apple or banana, or a snack bar. Not all protein, but easily prepared and carried in my purse mostly. The shake is a good breakfast, and if I had the muffins made they would work for either a snack or a breakfast.
