After my walk today, I drank my first protein shake. Easy to make, I drank it within 30 minutes of finishing my walk to get the full benefits.
It did the job as far as killing my hunger – I feel full, not bloated. I certainly see how a protein shake can replace a meal.
I drank mine at 10:30 am as a substitute for my mid morning snack. I normally eat lunch at noon. Today, I’ll eat lunch closer to 1:30 pm.
As for the taste…horrible. I definitely need to mix the powder with ice-cold water. So now I’m looking for ways to improve the taste.
I picked up some strawberries. A 1/4 cup equals 2 net carbs. The strawberries bump the shake’s net carb count to 3 – what my daily snacks average out to. Nice!
Hopefully tomorrow’s strawberry infused shake will taste significantly better.
