Wow, everyone really wants to get in on the Jay Robb action! I decided to pick three winners and send them each a sample of protein powder. The Fudge Brownie bar went to a friend. (Thanks again Abbie!) Drumroll please…and the randomly chosen winners are:
Congrats to the winners! I will be sending each of you an email soon, and thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. I truly wish I could have sent each of you a packet of Sexy Hot Love.
Regarding my dairy-free ways and whey protein powder…still on the fence about this one. Soon, I will do a more in-depth post on I why I want to cut out dairy completely, but for right now, I’m doing some self-experimentation. Apparently, Jay Robb uses whey protein isolate in his powders, the most pure and concentrated form of whey protein available. It contains 90% or more protein and very little (if any) lactose. So, until I run out of my economy sized tub of the stuff, I’m going to continue to use it. However, I did just learn some exciting news…
Jay Robb is coming out with a brown rice protein powder very soon! You do not know how excited this makes me, and I hope to do a review once the product is available. My office is also starting to stock Sun Warrior (VeggieGirl’s favorite) brown rice protein powder. I can’t wait to compare the two products!
Some dairy free eats I have been loving lately:
Inspired by the lovely Jenn, I combined 2 hard-boiled eggs with 1 spoonful of hummus and 1 spoonful of BBQ sauce. Delish!
Yesterday, I made Sarah’s flax seed pudding. I brought 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk to a boil and then stirred in 3 TBSP of ground flax seed, 5 drops of French vanilla Stevia drops, and cinnamon. I then let it boil for 1 to 2 minutes, poured it in a bowl, and let it cool a while before putting it in the refrigerator. It needed to chill at least an hour, and when I took it out, it had solidified…somewhat anyway. It was a bit runny, but topped with PB & Co’s Mighty Maple and some Cocoa Bliss, this was a total treat!
See, dairy-free isn’t so bad.
