Need unflavored protein that isn't weird



Recommended Posts

Hey all-

I am 5 weeks post op, and most of the time I drink 8 oz of skim with 1 scoop of Jay Robb strawberry Protein powder. The thing is, that gets old after a while (even though it is quite good), and sometimes I don't want to use almost 200 calories for a Protein shake. I still want to get all of my Protein in (my nut says 60-70 grams) but I would like to have an option where I have unflavored protein I can add to SF pink lemonade or something along those lines. I purchased powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury (which everyone says is the best, flavorless etc), and I can sometimes taste it and ALWAYS smell it. The smell is so weird/bad that I can't bring myself to drink it really. Sometimes in desperation I just pinch my nose and chug it, but gross. Can anyone suggest an unflavored whey protein isolate (it has to be whey protein isolate, nut says) that isn't disgusting or smelly?!

Thanks!

Good luck, I'm interested to hear opinions on this. I've tried the Unjury unflavored and Optimum nutrition any whey unflavored Protein. They do ok if I'm cooking with it. Like if I make protein pancakes with cottage cheese in them, I throw in a scoop of Protein Powder and then I can't taste it. But every time I mix it in a drink I can taste and smell it.

I thought that the Protein Powder wasn't supposed to be heated? On the Unjury it says 'Don't heat over 100 degrees' or something along those lines. You've been cooking with it and eating it and it's okay?

Hmm, I never noticed that on the Unjury container, but I believe you I never really looked. I only tried the sample. The ON seems to be fine. I've never had trouble. I know alot of people throw a scoop into their coffee too. The container for the optimum nutrition one says it's great for baking and lists beverages that it can be mixed into including coffee and hot chocolate so I would assume that is fine. I guess they all just vary.

I tried Unjury and didn't like it at all. It had a weird smell and taste to me. I love Any Whey from Optimum Nutrition. I put it in my coffee every morning (after I stir in some liquid Creamer from the fridge to cool it down). You can tell there is a little something in there but it's not bad at all. I've also mixed it in Soup and other foods and can't tell it's there. I order it online. You should definitely try it.

I definitely agree ... this was the best. I added it to yogurt, pudding, oatmeal, warm cocoa, etc. I ordered it from Amazon at a good price.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
