A Protein Sample

by Joanne on March 12, 2009

I received a nice surprise today with my protein bar order, it was a sample of “Nectar Sweet” Whey Protein Isolate by Syntrax.  It came from “AllStarHealth” where I purchase my bars.  Looks interesting.  Here’s the scoop for a 1/2 Serving Sample (14g)


  • Cals 50
  • Fat 0
  • Carbs 0
  • Protein 12g

The ingredients are:

  • Whey protein isolate
  • dutch processed cocoa powder
  • natural and artificial flavors (hmmmmm????)
  • soy lecithin, salt
  • acesulfame-K
  • sucralose

It tastes very good. There isn’t any chalky taste to it like a lot of the protein powders.  I like the calorie, carbs, and protein data.  This just might be one for my list.

One determined bird.  

You have to appreciate the determination of God’s little creatures.  This cute feathered fellow, had something between his little feet, probably a seed, and he was just a peckin’ away.  He didn’t seem to care that Ted and I were staring at him through the window.


What’s on the plate…  not much. I’m having a left over “non-burger” and Ted is doing his funky thing with ground turkey.  He likes adding eggs and a whole lot of goodies to his ground meats.  He actually tried to swipe some of my mushrooms that I was sauteing in SmartBalance lite.  I strategically talked him out of it.  Just like an experienced negotiator, explaining how much better they would be after I finished working a miracle on them.  😉  Anyway, he stirred up quite the concoction less mushrooms.  

This was my little plate of steamed broccoli and asparagus, sauteed  mushrooms with shallots, and non-burgers.  I had some Zukay salsa on the side.

Tomorrow, I’ll be doing the Friday solo act at work since it’s Sue’s Friday off. It was her birthday yesterday, March 11 so she left work early today (she should’ve left early yesterday but you-know-who was ill and she couldn’t leave) .  It’s Sam’s birthday tomorrow.  Sam is Sue’s hubby…I know.. I KNOW……Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land And they shimmy And Sammy’s so skinny…”
music1 Cute.   

So anyway….. I’m on my own tomorrow in the office unless my dearest comes to visit with Shane, that would be nice. 

That’s the scoop for this Thursday. Hope you had a productive day and just keep in mind as you open your sleepy eyes in the morning, TGIF!!!! Yahooey!  What’s the proper spelling for “yahooey” anyway? Is it with or without that “e”? Probably doesn’t matter since it’s not a word.
