STRAWBERRY BANANA PROTEIN DRINK

STRAWBERRY PROTEIN DRINK 1

Every now and then I make myself a protein drink. I’ve had this container of pea protein from NOW SPORTS for about a year, that’s how seldom I make one. And I have a back up in the pantry. This one is almost empty, however, so at least I’m using it, albeit slowly.

Recently I decided to increase the amount of exercise I do, so thought I’d have one of these maybe once or twice a week.

So,  about 8 oz. Almond Milk – Almond Breeze is good – plus a banana, a bunch of fresh strawberries and 1 scoop protein powder. Blend till smooth, then top with a little nutmeg.

I keep my bananas in the refrigerator. They last longer that way, plus they make the drink colder.

I get two glasses out of this amount, one for now and one for later.

When I first started using the protein powder, I felt stronger, but I also felt hungry all the time, so I wasn’t using the drink to replace a meal, I used it between meals, so naturally I experienced some weight gain. I also noticed a little slowing in the brain department, and wondered if high protein diets can do that. Mine wasn’t so high, but maybe it was high for my needs.

Anyway, here I go again, restarting an old practice, this time as I want it, not as I think I need it. That seems to work better for me.
