Ok ladies (maybe gents) look who was at my house this morning. Oh yeah – hubba hubba!!
That’s right, I had my first taste of Mr. Robb and let me tell you, he blew away the competition. I was sent 3 flavors – Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla. I went right for the vanilla as I have read so many great reviews of it.
I made the usual oaty mix – 1/2 cup oatmeal mixed with 1 1/2 cups water and the Jay Robb Rice Protein packet. I cooked it on the stove until it was to my liking – thick and creamy. I then added pumpkin and 1/3 a banana. I left out the usual heaping dose of cinnamon. I really wanted to be able to taste the vanilla without the flavor being overly masked.
To the top I added the rest of the banana and a swirl of peanut butter.
Well the first taste was surprising – SWEET – that is something the other protein powder is missing. I was not sure how I would like the taste of stevia but it actually started to grow on me with each bite. I was loving this “dessert” for breakfast. I would definitely buy this Vanilla over the competition any day. I can’t wait to try the other 2 flavors. Thanks Jay Robb for making my morning a little bit sweeter. You can come over anytime. I actually do not know how I am going to be able to eat the rest of the this stuff when I have tasted what true delight is.
D and I had our weekly babysitting shift at the gym this morning. Good thing I had such a filling breakfast – the kiddies really worked the sitters to the bone today. I did not even need to have a snack when I busted out of there. I did start to get hungry around 11:30 so I just made lunch a tad earlier than usual.
I had a the rest of my Nutritional Yeast Veggies with spinach and homemade hummus. For some crispy crunchers I had 365 brand Veggie Chips and 2 rice cakes with a piece of melted Swiss cheese.
I ended lunch with an apple and Once Again Sunflower seed butter.
We will be leaving to go to D’s appointment in a little while. Charlie is coming home early so that we all can attend. Honestly, I am so glad that he is coming – I am feeling really nervous. I will let you know how things go.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
