Warm, Frosty Chocolate?
I have been craving cereal and I am on a low-carb diet so it's a no-no of sorts... well, I did find a protein cereal which is pretty good...It's 140 calories a serving(which I thought was sorta small but my band is totally satisfied), 24g carbs(12g of which are sugar), and 12g of protein... I am still in trials so if any of you found a healthy cereal which is lower carb... I would appreciate the recommendations... Well, I finally added Protein shakes to my menu today... I was told by my doctor not to drink my calories... but I cannot get enough protein in by meal alone. I picked a Pure Protein ready to drink shake... GNC didn't have any cold Frosty Chocolates(Ironic that Frosty Chocolate can be warm, huh?) so I went with a Strawberry and cream this morning. It was 11oz, had 35g of Protein, 160 calories(only 10 from fat), 1g fat, 2g carbs(only 1 of which was sugar) and has no aspartame... sound too good to be true, hence... the nasty taste, but I had no trouble getting it down since it was only 11oz. I bought the chocolate for tomorrow... It has 170 calories(still only 10 from fat), 1g fat, 4g carbs, and no aspartame... but how will it taste? We will find out tomorrow, but I had no trouble getting the protein goal for today with the help of that Strawberry nightmare... Who hasn't swallowed some high protein liquid for the better good? *********************Update........ I am sorry I was being so subtle with the last sentence of this post.... Of Course, I am flithy, dirty, bad girl! I was jealous when Gilly was offered spankings in Chicago... So I will make my little swatting well-deserved.... I would never make it in 50's suburbia.... but who wouldn't love to wear one of those frilly sheer aprons with nothing else on with a roast in a pan to greet your mate when they come home....LOL!
