Syntrax Nectar is a new protein drink I am trying instead of buying the Vitamin Shoppe out of Isopure (which is great too!). They have vanilla bean, chocolate truffle, lemonade, lemon tea (tastes like iced tea) and a couple other flavors. I liked the Fuzzy Navel the best. It honestly makes me feel like I am a little girl sipping on the one drink (seriously) my parents would have 1-2 times a year, if that. It also makes me feel like I can be a social drinker LOL. It really tastes like a fuzzy navel without the protein after taste that comes with a lot of protein drinks. This can be mixed with water or milk (I had it in the store with water) and can also be combined with fruit, juice or yogurt to make smoothies. It has a whopping 23 grams of protein and only 90 calories in one scoop. Zero carbs.
Now, I am, by no means, trying to sell this stuff. What makes me incredibly happy is that people told me my tastes would change after the surgery and they were right. I have two tubs of my old favorite protein shake (Platinum Hydro Whey Turbo Chocolate and Velocity Vanilla) in my cupboard that I no longer like. It also has too many calories in it for me. So finding this was a nice breath of fresh protein air! I love finding new and interesting things post-op that I can enjoy and still get in my more than 50 grams of required protein a day. Soooo, party at the Lipton house...watch out, things may get crazyyyyy! Hehe
