Recommended Posts

I'm new to the Protein Shake world! I received samples of powders? utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury chicken Soup which I look forward to trying, but otherwise I'm a complete novice.

So here's your chance guys. What are your all time favorite flavors and brands? I'm looking forward to branching out!

I bought the BP flavor pack to try different drinks. Most of the citrus ones were really good.

I'm a big fan of powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury..... I also love the fact that you can call and talk with their dietitians. Order directly from Unjury.

I mostly use the vanilla Protein powder, and recently have been incorporating a half serving of unflavored in my morning coffee. The chocolate splendor is delicious, too, especially with an added tablespoon of PB2. I also like the chicken Soup with a pinch of chicken bouillon added, but be very careful with the Water temperature - no hotter than 140 deg. or the whey will clump. Get creative with the liquids you mix the powders with. Some of my favorites are vanilla PP w/sugar free orange sunrise; vanilla PP w/skim milk; half vanilla/half chocolate w/skim milk and a little brewed coffee. There's no reason for Protein shakes to get boring.

I also like Quest Protein Bars and use them sometimes for Breakfast or a snack. These I order from Amazon.

QUEST! I lied, I have tried Proteins before. I had a lot of Quest vanilla powder and their bars back when I was doing Keto. I loved the bars.

I like EAS powders. Honestly not all the found of Protein shakes but EAS so far tastes the best. It's not saying a lot.

A good topic! Here are mine

premier Protein
My top choice. Easy on the tummy, love the ready to go shakes and tasty.

I am now experimenting cooking with them too! My favorite food right now is oatmeal made with a Protein Drink. My husband jokes it is like Soup but it works for me. I got the idea from, I think,@Travelher.

Favorite combos for oatmeal
Chocolate + Powdered Peanut Butter
Carmel or vanilla + canned pumpkin and dash of pumpkin pie spice
Any flavor + a little sugar free Syrup


Isopure unflavored
I was really skeptical about an unflavored Protein Powder but I do like it. In the beginning, I thought it had a weird texture but now I don't notice it.

I typically add it to a V8 for my post work out food. Lots of Vitamins and electrolytes in the V8 and adding the unflavored powder, I get protein too!

I did try this mixture with oatmeal and avocado, it was pretty good. Very much like a soup but it was good. Yeah, I know I'm a little crazy.

Quest
Like the Quest bars. I tried a few from the store like someone said and then bought in bulk on Amazon. The mint chocolate chunk is good.


Powdered peanut butter
For several months after surgery the smell of peanut butter was gross and then that changed! Pbfitt at costco is a good price

Yogurt!
Sugars can be really high with some yogurts. I like the Dannon light and fit the best.

Good luck. I am excited to see more suggestions

if you want to thicken it up add a little chia seed they will absorb some of the liquid...I use vanilla Premier Protein. and sometime will add an extra tablespoon of the premier vanilla powder as well. that helps thicken it a bit too. My current recipe is 2tbs oats, 1/2 tbs chia, 1tbs of premier powder, 1/2 premade Premier Protein some cinnamon and apple

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
