Pump it up with Protein Powder

protein

I’ve been trying to consume about 25 grams of protein per meal and it’s hard, especially at breakfast.  I don’t know why I never thought of this, but I tried using it as an addition to coffee and quick breads and viola!  The protein requirement is easily met.

  1. What happened to bacon and eggs? Is that Blue Agave a brand of tequila? Dang, I didn’t know there was protein in tequila. I need to replace the bloody mary’s with margarita’s! But, there’s more vitamin C in the Zing Zang than the lime juice. Dang all these choices. Maybe I’ll just drink both.

  2. Al…Drinking protein powder (vanilla) with Tequila will make a great drink for my Memorial Day party. I won’t even bother with food or have to fire up the grill. Thanks for the idea.
