Protein Shakes

Butterfinger Protein Shake

In the beginning there was the protein shake. And it was milk and it was whey and it was NOT GOOD! Then the protein gods said “let there be flavor” and there was flavor…and it was good! By and large WLS has vastly reduced my sweet tooth. Lemme tell you…I useta could put away a whole pack of Oreos by …

Nutella Protein Shake

I have a good friend from OH who is always sending me stuff. In the two years I’ve been an active member she’s sent me Christmas goodies and when I met her in person she came loaded down with stuff for me.

Irish Coffee Protein Shake

St. Paddy’s Day is still a ways away, but I am in the mood to be Irish for a minute. Indulge me. This protein shake reminds me of the Bailey’s Irish Creme ice cream I used to eat when I was a kid. Interestingly enough, I have only had real Irish coffee (made by Irish people no less) once in …

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Fall is upon us and everyone seems to have their own variation of a pumpkin pie protein shake. All are worthy in my little opinion and all serve different purposes. Pumpkins are nutritionally a great food containing beta carotene and a whole host of vitamins and minerals. So pumpkin pie protein shakes with pureed pumpkin are a more than worthy …

Peanut Brittle Protein Shake

You know this can’t be my blog without some sort of shout out to peanuts! They are one of my favorite foods. I wish I could eat more of them but justifying the fat is hard y’all. I work as much peanut action into my day as possible though. Folks often ask me how I make peanuts work in my …

Peppermint Patty Protein Shake

As in Peppermint Paddy. And no…I am not talking about the girl from the Peanuts cartoons. I am talking about the velvety, refreshing, makes-your-mouth-say “AMEN!” taste of a peppermint paddy. Before I give up the goods I gotta tell you a story about these little treats. When I was younger my great-grandmother used to keep a candy dish full of …

Protein Shake of the Week: Bananas Foster…

In the interest of full disclosure I have to tell you that I hated bananas pre-op. They made my tummy hurt badly. I dunno why. But post-op…once I started trusting fruit again (new post-ops…tread carefully with fruit…it has sugar too although not sucrose and bananas have a LOT of sugar) I was drawn to bananas. I think I needed the …
