I’m sorry.. did you say Reese’s for breakfast?! Heck yes! I know that I talked about using Advocare Meal Replacements in one of my previous posts about adding protein. But I gotta tell you about the new flavor– Chocolate Peanut Butter. They just released the new flavor a week ago, and it might not be around long. Nutritional Facts: 220 calories Balanced meal for optimal nutrition and weight management 24 grams of easy-to-digest protein 50% of the Daily Value of calcium 26 vitamins and minerals I like it blended with a banana and ice cubes or if I’m on the run, I can always shake it up with cold almond milk. I always have one in my purse and in my desk as work that I can have with mixed with water for an emergency snack. I have always like the chocolate, but this new flavor is super yummy! I’m thinking about making Protein Brownies with them or something… be on the look out for that recipe! Get some!
I’ve been wanting to try hemp seeds for awhile now. I am constantly trying to find ways to sneak extra protein into our diets. A serving of hulled hemp seeds (approximately 3 tbps) has 11 g of protein! In addition to Omegas 3 & 6, hemp seeds also are a good source of zinc, iron, and magnesium. Check it out. They added a very slight nutty flavor to our smoothie. I added about a 1/3 cup to the blender, which yielded two 6-8oz. smoothies. It blended up very nicely, I did not notice any grittiness or additional thickness to the drink.
