found two news ways to get protein
I was at Target today and saw this cereal which I saw advertised on tv a few times and thought i would give it a try. Ladies it is delish! It is very similar to granola. Of course I didn't put any milk in it, I haven't had cereal with milk since I have been banded. But this is really good. For 3/4 of a cup you get 9 grams of protein and 180 calories. I think this might be my new mid morning snack. I ate it in the car this morning, since I didn't have breakfast and it was 10:30 I new I needed something before going to church. It was really good.
The next wonderful find is something I came across on someones blog. It was an older blog one that hadn't been updated in like 9 months or something but she suggested taking some of the protein powder for shakes and mix it with a little bit of milk and then put it in your coffee. Now I bought some chocolate powder a long time ago I didn't really care for and I used that. I poured it into the coffee and it is soo good. It just gave it a little taste of chocolate not too much, but what I am more excited about is there is 20 grams of protein right there with my morning cup of java. I tell you the things that make me happy. Before my joy came from finding a 6th nugget from Wendys when I only ordered 5, but now it is all about getting my protein in.
