What's your new favorite protein snack?



Recommended Posts

I like the Low Carb chocolate Slim Fast with 1 cup of Silk milk and a banana. Throw it in the Magic Bullet with a few ice cubes!

Also...the VitaminShoppe has a great Protien Drink. Cookies and Cream and the brand is ??? Oh darn, I forget. But they have it in the refrigerator and if I'm on the run I know I can pop in there and grab one of those.

I wish we had some decent stores here. We don't have a GNC or Vitamin Shop.

I never thought of putting anything in the low carb slim fast. I drink that a lot because like you said, all you have to do is pop open a can. It has more calories than the Atkins ones, but it also has more Protein in it. I kind of switch off between those.

With the vanilla low carb slim fast, you have a lot more fruit choices to add in. I've tried peaches, bananna and blueberry so far. But, I like the chocolate flavor better. I cannot think of too many other things to add to the chocolate....Hmmmm....maybe a tbl. of Peanut Butter in the chocolate. That might be good.

A little peppermint extract is good to add to the chocolate as well.

I have another little shake/smoothie that I made up and it's WONDERFUL! I use 1c skim milk 1 scoop Protein Powder (chocolate) 1/2 a banana (a small one) a cpl spoons of Bryer's carb smart ice cream put it in the blender and YUMMY tastes like a banana split!! MMMM Also I LOVE cottage cheese 0% plus by purity with some wheat crackers. Very good and filling snack.< /p>

I realize this is an old thread, but I recently discovered the "New Whey" 42gr vials. They can be mixed as a shake or drink them straight from the vial, which is my preferred method. Be sure to shop around on the web, I found several places much cheaper than my local GNC or Vitamin Shoppe.

As for the taste, not bad at all. It takes a little getting use to, but much better than those gritty, nasty smelling powder Protein shakes. I just chug it down.

My new favorite high Protein is the Greek Yogurt! It comes in a variety of fat levels (non-fat, 2%, full fat, etc). The interesting this is that the non-fat varieties tend to have more protein! I am currently munching on Oikos brand Honey flavor Non-Fat greek Yogurt. 5.3 ounces for 13 grams of protein, no fat and 120 calories. Perfect for Breakfast. I have also tried the blueberry. Also the Fage brand is good too.... just make sure to get the 2% or non-fat version. The full fat version has 12 grams of fat!! Craziness.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
