Let’s talk coffee.If you’re wondering what to get me for Christmas, New England Coffee is the way to go. Especially this flavor or even some gingerbread.
I also accept anything in Starbucks form.Oh and don’t forget Quest bars! These are my current favorites.I’ve been using Six Star Pro Nutrition whey protein lately and I am in love with the results. I am very picky with my proteins and found that this one is really good, for me anyways.
I use about 2 scoops a day either in my oatmeal or for making a “protein pudding.” Just use 1 scoop of protein mixed with some water, place in fridge for 15mins and eat!It’s under $20 at Wal-Mart and I’ve also been using it for protein truffles and they have been quite delicious.
Note that I do make them vegan and dairy free too!I am lactose intolerant, in case y’all didn’t know but this protein doesn’t bother my stomach and all. I am noticing a good amount of “gains” using it.Working on that muscle seperation while focusing on quads, bi’s back and shoulder boulders.And remembering to enjoy all things in moderation.It’s another busy week for yours truly between work and truffles. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about y’all.

Have a great week everyone!
Tuesday at a little past midnight, I was sick.
Not the puke once, drink ginger ale and go back to bed sick. But the I threw up nine times from midnight to 1pm and nothing made me feel better.
Except a Quest bar and vitamin water. Must have been the prebiotics and electrolytes maybe? Anyways, I am getting back on track and on the workout wagon after taking a few days off from being so nauseous. It was a combination of food poisoning and a stomach virus that was going around. What came out of me wasn’t pretty and let’s just say I am not looking at greens, chicken and bananas for a very long time. Well unless the greens are in the form of an Aloha daily greens packet. Or the banana is in a smoothie. And perhaps maybe not too long, but I am definitely going to be eating more vegetarian. I did a vegetarian challenge and also ate vegetarian for almost a year (except on a couple of days).
My stomach/ digestive system did feel better. As I got busy, meal prep time started to decline. I would just grab pre-cooked chicken and a Green Giant’s veggie steamer and go to work. It was just easier for me and the price was right (at a place called Market Basket).
I’ve just have been quite lazy and resorting to just chicken, veggies and some starchy carb. I find that when I am eating more vegetarian, I eat a variety because I get “bored” faster and always need a new protein source. I can eat chicken and greens forever, but after Tuesday that is the last thing on my mind. That being said, I am going to challenge myself to eat vegetarian until Thanksgiving.
Not only because I am “semi-traumatized” but to add variety in my diet. No worries, Quest and thinkThin bars are still here to stay.And of course, the occasional “candy indulgence.” Yep, this was my Halloween treat from the manfriend. He thought I should have gotten some Resee’s but these are way better. At least I think so.I am on day five of a vegetarian diet. My stomach does feel better, digestion wise, but I do have to get use to the increased fiber intake.
One step at a time I suppose?
Question: Are you a meat eater? Mostly vegetarian? A little bit of both? Or just eat what ever your heart desires?
