White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Shake

White Russian Protein Shake

~~posted by Jen Back in my younger days, we used to go to the VFW on Saturday nights. Laugh all you want, but I grew up in a very small, very rural town in Southwest Georgia.

Shaking up Your Salad!

~~posted by Jen So usually I eat a salad with some protein on top for lunch or dinner, but one of my favorite “go to” snacks is veggie sticks with Greek Yogurt Ranch dip.  Let’s face it, you can only eat so much meat and cheese before you start craving “vegabulls”.  Yesterday afternoon I made myself the little crudite snack …
