      I try to eat protein but I like to limit my meat. I have protein powder but prefer not to add it to my water, etc. Do you add protein powder anywhere else??

        • I put my protein powder into smoothies for breakfast, or put it in with my oatmeal before cooking it.  The oatmeal was a little thick this time, so I may try adding it after the oatmeal cooks.

        • Sprinker, what is your basis for saying it is a waste of money?  Many of the recent books on health and diet  have recommended it, such as Jorge Cruise and Kathy Smith.

          Has anyone cooked eggwhites in their oatmeal?  I haven’t tried it cause it sounds disgusting.

        • I’m a veg, but I do eat fish and tofu, I lift weights so I’m trying to build muscle.  I add my protein powder to pancakes, oatmeal, soymilk, you can add it to foods you bake too.  The protein I use is whey isolate, it’s the best form of protein.

        • Sprinker, in your opinion, what are the best sources of protein besides meat?

          Thanks!

        • Thanks, Sprinker.  Those are helpful.  I’ve been adding protein powder to smoothies in the morning.  However, I could continue to make a smoothie, and eat a slice of Ezekial bread.  I actually think the calories would be about the same.

          Will mixing beans and brown rice also result in a complete protein chain?

        • I wholeheartedly agree with Sprinkler that natural is better.  However, because of work schedules and not always being able to prepare a healthy dinner for hubby and myself, we have chosen to compliment our protein diet with Soy powder.  We both work out early in the morning (5AM) and then have a delicious drink consisting of the following:
          Blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, mango, banana, walnuts, yogurt, cottage cheese, dry oatmeal, and milk.  It is very filling as you might imagine.  I also occasionally eat a boiled egg if I have had a real stringent walk that morning.  This may not be the ideal but it works for us and our lifestyle.
