TERA'S WHEY - Love the name!
I tried the Fair Trade Organic Dark Chocolate Whey Protein and the Organic Bourbon Vanilla Whey Protein. I mixed the Vanilla Whey with 8 oz. of water in my shaker after a workout and I was pleasantly surprised. The whey easily mixed in the shaker (without clumps) and had a great creamy texture. No gross “fake sugar” after taste like most protein powders. When I tried the Chocolate Whey, I had just finished a run and needed some extra carbs and natural sugars to help me recover. I mixed ½ c. of milk, ½ c. water, ½ of a banana, 4 crushed ice cubes and the whey in my Magic Bullet. WOW – it was like a Malt!!!! So good.
My rating on Tera’s Whey: 5 stars!!!
It's A Miracle!!
Since I am now on the "low carb" part of my Show Prep Diet, I am SERIOUSLY craving my rice noodles. I've tried other gluten free noodles, but Thai Rice Noodles are by far my favorite. Before my diet revamp, I lived off of rice noodles. Rice noodles with chicken, rice noodles with veggies, rice noodles with shrimp, rice noodles in my orange juice. Ok, so I got a little carried away one time. But honestly, every day I made my rice noodles, threw in some type of extra & covered it in spaghetti sauce. Voila! Instant yumminess! I seriously believe that I had to have been a fat, Italian man in some past life because I LOVE my noodles with red sauce! And when they were eliminated from my diet, let's just say that I was a VERY unhappy girl!
That is until I found The Miracle Noodle. Miracle Noodles are GLUTEN FREE, SOY FREE, CALORIE FREE & CARB FREE noodles made from Konnyaku Flour (Konnyaku Flour is a soluable fiber is supposed to slows digestion and give you that "full" feeling). Miracle noodles come in a a few different varieties - rigatoni, orzo, fettucini, mini pearls. I decided to try the angle hair. These "miracle noodles" sounded too good to be true, so I had to give them a try.
My rating on The Miracle Noodles: 5 stars!!!
