protein drink #1

Monday, February 04, 2013

i have protein powder now and am going to make a few protein drinks some mornings for breakfast. It won't be every morning because it's still a processed item with the powder even though I dd fruit and such to it. But on occasion, a quick shake since i don't like eating in the morning, is a good start to changing my non-food before 1pm habit.

Today's drink

1 scoop strawberry creme soy protein powder
2 frozen strawberries
2 frozen peach slices
an ice cube
diet green tea (arizona)

It was interesting. Not the greatest but not bad either. I think I will try it with soy milk next as it will kind of be like strawberry milk, which I didn't mind growing up. I also have frozen raspberries to add and some liquid vitamins and such to add boosts if I decide to put a little into the mix. I drank a bit under 8 oz, so it was only like 100 calories, but it's a start.

    Thanks for the comments but I don't know the exact thing in dairy that I'm allergic to, which is why I am not trying whey protein right now.

    Whey protein powder with coconut or almond milk. I use vanilla flavored if I don't use real milk. Cocnut milk (plain) has 60 calories per serving and is better for you than soy.
    Good luck with the breakfast. That is a hard one. But you will find that once you start consuming calories first thing in the morning. Your body will want it and you will eat less overall and drop pounds.

    be careful of SOY -- it can affect hormones
