Anyhow, I am not normally a big "milk" drinker, but I have been drinking a soymilk concoction to aid in protein intake. This "milk" has 19 grams of protein. I sip on this concoction all afternoon with interimtent nut (walnuts are bad to the bone) & seed snacking along with the standard breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare. Anyhow, if you are feeling like you want to step into protein world, give it a try:
Lish's Protein Milk or "Milks" in Bodhi's words
(and, yes, Bodhi likes the milks too!)
1 cup unsweetened soymilk
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 Tablespoons Cacao nibs or Dagoba Cacao powder (sold at Whole Foods)
2 Tablespoons flax meal
1 Tablespoon agave (or less, it's not bad without actually or omit if you use vanilla soy)
1/2 c ice
Blend until smooth and enjoy.
You may argue that this isn't much different from a protein shake, but I'd like to point out that it's made with real whole foods, and not from a powdered base. At least, I feel better about it ;)
I will be experimenting with quinoa flour, as quinoa is a complete protein grain. I'll let you know what I come up with, probably some quinoa protein muffins. Stay tuned.....
