Winner winner, protein dinner!

So, a while ago I won some Prairie Naturals Protein Powder from Lynn.  Well, it arrived last week!!  After some issues to iron out with the delivery company, I was overjoyed when it showed up!!

It smells so sweet. I wanted to put a spoon in and eat the powder (but I didn’t).  Alex thought it smelled like strawberries and cream… and I have to totally agree.

The first thing I made was an egg white/protein powder/crofter’s concoction.  It was dessert. It was good.

Then this week I made a berry smoothie with it.

I conclude, based on the aforementioned consumption of this protein powder, that I really like it!

Here’s some food highlights from yesterday

First, we have my Chobani. I was so excited to try my very first one.  at $2.99 a pop I savoured it.  I usually keep my food in my own insulated bag at my desk at work, but I wanted this to stay cold so I also labelled it carefully before putting it in the communal fridge at work. I was taking NO chances.

Mmmmm, it was good. Loved the tiny pieces of pomegranate in it.

Yesterday also involved other food…

Today I wasn’t so hungry and only had more berries for food during the day.  Tonight was too hot to cook so I stopped for some dinner at the grocery store:

Then I had a protein bar I made with the raspberry strawberry protein powder… I added oats, honey, protein powder, water and a bunch of dried berries… let it set and had this tonight:

So good.

Well, maybe I’ll update you on how my weight loss is going since leaving weight watchers.  It’s not really.  I’m basically maintaining.  I have had zero exercise… for various (and lame) reasons.  I keep telling myself I’ll pick up again when I get my gym membership (which I have to wait for June to get… our employer only does enrolments once a month).  I really shouldn’t wait.  Sooooo… this weekend the plan is to get activity in on Sunday. I am working on Saturday, so being realistic I know I won’t get exercise in before work.  I’m not throwing in the towel! I am just working on NOT seeing this as a WW vacation… I need to keep up my efforts!

Happy Thursday!

I REALLY wanna find that Greek yogurt! Super delicious foods for today though, way to go!

If you're maintaining your weight, way to go! That in itself is hard to do! On Tuesday, you will have a gym membership again!!

Take care!

Glad you're enjoying the Whey Powder, it really is the best that I've ever had. Most stuff just tastes chalky and gross.

I am SO jealous of your Chobani. :)
