I don't eat cereal very often, so I have to search for ways to add cinnamon. I can only think of adding it to my yogurt, or casserole dishes (but then I won't get in that much in a portion of the casserole).
I've tried sprinkling it on fruit, but the caked layer it forms on top after it got wet from the fruit moisture wasn't very appealing... It goes well with squash and carrots, but I eat that once a week or so only.
Thanks, Barb. I really have to watch my spiraling calories (I've gained 7lb since the beginning of the year!), so I think I'll just mix it with water for now; later, when I'm more comfortable with my weight after losing some lbs, I may mix it with skim milk.
I'm going for a run later today (no exercise yesterday apart from wandering around in the city and doing a little light housework), and will have my protein shake afterwards. Then I'll head for the coffee shop and have a big pot of green tea to rehydrate.View Thread
It's good that you've found a snack that is healthy and works for you.
How many calories are in one of your shakes? Do you take it with milk or water?
I used to think that eating whole protein-rich foods carbs (egg-whites or tuna and veg juice, or yogurt/nuts and fruit,etc.) after my workout is better than a drink: greater variety of nutrients, more fiber, and the psychological advantage of chewing and eating, which is more satisfying, as opposed to drinking.
However, my workouts are now more intense (running, heavier weight-lifting, interval training), so I am considering a whey protein drink afterwards too.View Thread
