I’m so excited! I just placed my first EVER order with www.netrition.com!! A few months ago I had asked Julie where she got all of her protein powders & cool products- like Carba Nada noodles. I have been waiting to finish my current protein powder so that I could order more…well today was the day! I think I have enough powder left for one more Green Monster…or maybe even two. I need enough to get me thru Tuesday & Wednesday’s breakfasts 🙂 I ordered:
I was researching about that Oatmeal & Whey protein powder & I liked what I found. Since I typically only use 1/2 scoop of Whey protein powder- it is 55 calories & 11 grams of protein…well with the Oatmeal & Whey powder, it is TWO scoops of powder @ 160 calories & 24 g. protein. So I will use 1 scoop (or a little under). It has added fiber in it- which I liked. I got the chocolate flavor, which should be good- I can bake with it too!! 😀
I also got the idea of using powdered peanut butter from Janetha. I had asked her for some ideas to mix in plain Greek yogurt, since I do NOT like the plain by itself- makes me a bit sick feeling. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of the flavored ones..but the plain just doesn’t do it for me. One of many AWESOME suggestions that she had was using PB2, or the powdered peanut butter. I was not too familiar with it, so I Googled it- as I do with most things- and it looked really good! & the nutrition facts are GREAT! I will also be using it in my Green Monsters as well (instead of regular peanut butter) to mix it up sometimes.
The Carba Nada noodles I am just excited to try for dinners- to replace pasta. I see Julie using it in her lunches as well- which I think is also a great idea 🙂 140 calories per serving of PASTA…YES please!!
Needless to say www.netrition.com made my night–haha 😀
Then add BBQ sauce to the shredded chicken & make the burgers:
I topped them with a sprinkle of 2% colby & jack cheese, 1 tsp. light ranch dressing & some spinach leaves.
These sliders were the PERFECT Sunday night meal. I swear, Jessica NEVER disappoints with her recipes 🙂
Now we are just sitting here watching baseball…I think we are still going to meet our friends later- but I’m not 100% sure. We haven’t heard from them yet..but they are a bit more of night owls than we are. Should be hearing from the soon..but if not, that’s ok too- I know they had a busy day of moving- YUCK!
Have a good Sunday night 🙂 & YAY for no work tomorrow!!!!
