August 26, 2013

Remember those hot summer afternoons as a kid where you would grab a Creamsicle and enjoy the sweet, creamy, orange flavor? Well, with the heat out here in Okinawa I kept thinking about these recently and HAD to play around with my typical protein shake. And again- I swear I will get a new glass…

My own version of a Frappichino.

July 29, 2013

So, after making the Cake Batter Protein Shake the other day, and then the Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana, I have been having fun using up the rest of my cottage cheese with different proteins.

My favorite use of Greek Yogurt

May 1, 2013

I will start with: I miss Fage Greek Yogurt. I also miss the 2 cup size containers. The commissary over here has neither, so I use Oikos Greek Yogurt. And get the 4 pack of 4 ounce containers. Makes it more of a pain, but oh well. OH, and I miss Silk Unsweetened Almond milk.…
