One Ingredient Fixes to Jazz Up Your Chocolate Protein!

So I recently published my “protein shake check-up” so you can make sure your protein shake is still on the right side of your plan. As I read through that, I began to think of all the wonderful ways we have of dressing up our shakes that add little or no calories to the equation. It’s interesting to me, how …

Foodie Find! CVS Whey Protein Packets

I posted about these the other day on Facebook and wanted to flesh out my review a little bit more. So picture it. Baltimore. 8:30 a.m. Nik is in a rush to get to work but needs a couple of things from the drug store. While there, Nik remembers that she packed no lunch today (boo!). So Nik goes to …

Protein Shake Check-Up

 So you’ve found the PERFECT protein shake. You’ve tested, you’ve tweaked, you’ve tested, you’ve tweaked and now it is divine. And Nik has to come and mess it all up! It’s good, as we’re playing with our food, to every once in a while do a “check up” on our protein shakes (with all our recipes really) to make …

Kahlua and Scream! Protein Shake

 It’s been a while since I posted a protein shake recipe. There is a good reason for that. It’s been a while since I’ve actually had a protein shake. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my shakes. But as I get further out, I’m capable of getting all my protein from solid food and these days I’ve been …

Peach-Mango (protein) Frozen Pops

First, a bit of business. Yesterday in the haze of excitement, I forgot to mention to you what I plan to do should I win the Magic Bullet Kitchen Magician contest. I think it’s important to know what you’re supporting (and I hope you DO support me on this!). I’ve been this close to finishing my protein shake recipe book …

Nik’s Protein Popsicles – Strawberry Banana

 It’s summertime!!! Well, maybe not. But it’s hot. It’s hot where I am and, more than likely, hot where you are too (if my weatherman is honest at all). Raise your hand if you’ve already started buying sugar free popsicles in bulk from Costco for your deep freezer. Yeah, I thought so. Those things are a delicious and low-cal …

Pear Infused Iced Tea

Call me a dork diva, but I really, really like fruit cocktail. LOVE IT. I love it so much I’ve been buying it and hoarding it and eating it for dessert. The motivation for this wonderfully refreshing beverage. What does this have to do with this post? Well, I seem to have inherited the soul of a mother of 13 …

BF Review: Everlast HyperPlex Vanilla Protein

 …and then there was one. Now you’d think I’d learned my lesson last week about non-scientific product reviews. After all, I have now come out of my pocket and bought yet ANOTHER protein powder (I am now at critical mass, by the way) so I can figure out where the brownie batter phenomenon comes from after using the Everlast HypePlex Chocolate. But …

The Strawberry Click Frapp

 Ohhh procrastination! How do I love thee? This shake was supposed to go up around Valentine’s Day. I even had a really cute name for it (“Nik’s Love Potion #10”). Alas, it was not meant to be. But the good news is this. I’m turning a corner on this bug I have and needed a protein boost so I …

Triple Chocolate Protein Shake

So this protein shake was born a few years ago, around St. Patrick’s Day. And you might find this hard to believe…but I…am not Irish. Still I’m inspired by St. Patrick’s Day. National/Cultural pride is a great thing and it should be celebrated. Although, today’s shake isn’t really about that. It’s triple chocolate. And much as I am proud of my …
