If you do not like fruits or veggies, try making your own protein shakes and add them as ingredients. I use Syntrax Nectar protein powder, add skim milk, water, fruit, veggies, nuts, tofu and mix it in the blender. WHen mixed together the taste of the veggies is hidden in the mix. Drink for a meal

Talk about a healthy alternative to Peanut Butter....this comes in a powder you mix with water - no added stuff to make it bad...just natural pb powder and really good. I mix it in a protein shake for a wonderful PB vanilla protein shake . Low cal and Low fat...45 calories for 2 tbs!
1.5 grams of fat per serving....and sodium is around 94 mg...they make regular and chocolate flavored PB 2 - I did'nt care for the chocolate...but the regular is great...mix it with water and make a sandwich or add to apple slices or banana slices...they also make a low sodium version .
Drinking a protein shake helps me get the protein I need. However protein powder is usually very gritty and clumps if just mixed with a spoon. Solution: Blender. It comes out baby smooth, fluffs up, and also I can add ice to make it a shake.
You need a blender. Lol. Also, don't think it's not worth your time because you have to clean the blender. It makes a HUGE difference from yucky to yummy. I drink my protein shake right after I do my Insanity workout.
