From the Foodie Files: Sensible Protein Shake Swaps!

One of my biggest crimes as the write of this blog is assuming you all have read this blog as long as I’ve written it. Not true! So many of you don’t know that I used to be something of a calorie zealot. This blog fed into that big time as I sought ways to make yummy food for the …

Nik’s WLS-Friendly Shamrock Shake

So you may have heard of this holiday…St. Patrick’s Day? I keep hearing about a guy who drove snakes out of Ireland but I’m pretty sure the holiday is about wearing green, drinking ale and being promiscuous (if the Baltimore bar scene can be trusted to tell the tale).

Pumpkin Protein Shake Starters

I’m really busy most days. Are you? If so you know that making some of the more decadent dessert shakes can be a hassle. Take pumpkin shakes for example.

Nik’s “Peanutella” Protein Shake

Ok, so I could post a picture with this recipe. But it wouldn’t be of this shake. Why? Well I’m in the process of packing up my house (while simultaneously decorating for Christmas…how psycho is THAT???) and all my pretty glasses are packed away.
