Fireworks #5!!!!!

It occurred to me that I mentioned—in my almonds post—a protein drink I like/enjoy. I can’t remember telling y’all about this—in the past.

Here it is:


I pick it up at Costco—but I’ve seen it at Sam’s and the price is basically the same at both places. They (And when I say “they” I have no idea who, exactly, I’m talking about—nutritionists, doctors, experts, etc.) tell us protein is what will keep us satisfied and better able to diet/control our food intake. I’m certain “they” are right—remember when TLC and I did the Dukan Diet? Lots o’ protein and we truly were not often hungry or craving sugar. (What is keeping me from trying that diet again? Okay. Okay. Sugar. Carbs. This dreadful heat in Texas that keeps my willpower at its lowest.)

I have yet to find another protein shake/drink that has as many grams as Premier. One container also has: 1 gram of sugar, 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of fat (“They” say we need a teensy-bitsy-bit of fat everyday—I’m quite pleased about that instruction—winky wink.), and 5 grams of carbs.

If you don’t have a Costco or Sam’s membership, maybe you could twist a friend’s arm—that does have said membership (TLC gives us her list of things she needs from these big box stores and we're always happy to accommodate her.)—to pick this up for you. These shakes run a little less than a $1 per container. Although I typically have one at breakfast, I occasionally replace a lunch or dinner meal with this option.

Gotta scott…Be Happy and Grateful And Healthy!
