    Guys, I have Optimum's nutrition whey protein powder in vanilla flavor, because
    1) Here i get very less options of whey protein + flavors.
    2) I dont like the two other flavors its available in (chocolate and strawberry)

    The problem is that i have started disliking this vanilla flavor as well, its way too sweet for me. O did i tell you guys that my sweet tooth never grew?

    So there a couple of things that i tried with this protein powder, the only thing that i kinda liked(tiny amount of likeness) was with banana, can some one tell me any other recipes for why protein other than making shakes, i literally have started to pinch my nose before i drink mine and i try drinking it in one sip.

    I hope everyone weighed in

    Here is the recipe for the soup. I haven't made it before. I'm thinking of adding a little sausage too.

    @Icuconley Happy Sunday to you too! I am mostly staying focused this weekend;) Hope you are too!
    @Mrscanmore the soup looks awesome! I think I might have to try it this week!
    @night_watcher I feel your pain. I can't have dairy so whey protein doesn't work for me. I have had a hard time finding a protein powder that I like also.

    Thanks for the recipes. It's finally cooling down enough here in Florida, to have soup. This sounds really good.

    Monday's daily challenge is eating a healthy breakfast, so I thought I'd do a quick post about what has quickly become my FAVORITE weekday breakfast: pumpkin pie overnight oats.

    At night I put 1/4 cup steel cut oats, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup almond/soy milk and a tsp each of pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup for sweetness into a mason jar and let sit. In the morning I have the most delicious cold oats for breakfast - no cooking required! If you like pumpkin pie, this is literally as close as you can get to eating it for breakfast while remaining on-track. I just wish it had a bit more protein - i might experiment with adding vanilla protein powder and see how that tastes!!

    I didn't show a loss last week because I went up before we actually started! But I had a really good week last week and am working hard again this week! I had my usual banana protein smoothie for breakfast today. I made the protein bars that I posted. They are good, and definitely healthier than store bought! The soup I posted was really good too :smile:

    Good morning all. Great job last week! Go pichu and madalice! Let's do it again! What is everyone's plan for the week? I am headed to the gym to lift after I fold a bit of laundry.

    @MadAliceNo1 I love potatoes, too. Made shepherds pie for dinner last night. I was really surprised when I put in the recipe how low cal it was. (For one serving...sometimes stopping is an issue!).

    @FitFabJenny Those oats sound great! I have some pumpkin left over from Sunday's pancakes....perfect!

    I went for my long run this morning. For my extra KM, I'm walking to work and back. It has been so cold here lately that I haven't been able to walk, but today it finally warmed up a bit. It is nice to already be at my step goal and the day has hardly begun :smiley:
