Hi, I’m a vegetarian, and I get plenty of protein.
I’m not going to go off on a rant about how I’m asked this question almost every day of my life. The fact is, I get plenty of protein. Most of the time, it’s from things like beans, whole grains, or yogurt.
But yesterday, I really packed in the protein. We’re talking, 43g of protein in the morning.
What did I eat? Well… it’s probably the most simple thing ever. Ready for this recipe?
6oz 0% Chobani greek yogurt + 1 scoop of About Time Cake Batter Protein Powder
Yes, that’s it. Obviously, you can add anything else you want. I topped mine with some blueberries. I’m sure lots of you have done this before, but I’m not sure why I expected it not to taste good. The protein powder actually blended so well with the Chobani, and I didn’t need to add any extra stevia to balance out the tartness of the yogurt.
So you get 43g of protein… for less than 200 calories. Go ahead meat eaters, beat that.
Since I’ve discovered this, I’ve started carrying Chobani + baggies of protein powder around in my purse.
It’s getting a little crowded in my bag…
Thanks to a not-so-spill proof coffee mug, I had to do an emergency dump of my bag.
I usually have these essentials:
Headphones, kindle, notepad, pen, sunglasses, reading glasses, bobby pins, ponytail holder, perfume, lipstick, iphone (work), iphone (play), ipod, charger (for both), business cards, gum, clutch with credit card, debit card, and ID.
But… before I leave for work, I also usually carry my laptop, charger, gym clothes, and the aforementioned yogurt + protein powder. I have no idea how it all fits… but some how it does.
