Little miss runner sat on her sofa, eating her pancakes and whey.
When along came the flavor, which sat down inside her,
and miss runner threw up in her dish.
I tried Trader Darwin’s (aka Trader Joe’s) Whey Protein powder, vanilla. I opened it up and smelled it and it was like funfetti! IT SMELLED LIKE FUNFETTI CAKE. That sets up expectations, people! Imagine my excitement, “Oh I can’t wait to eat this! I LOVE funfetti cake!”
Then I went to eat it and holy Dough Boy, it did not taste like funfetti.
Minor adjustments were made between yesterday and today–instead of adding it to my oatmeal, I added it to pancake batter. I mixed 1 scoop with 1/3 c. of bisquick, some almond milk, and cut up strawberries. It had a little bit of a kinda cake-y vanilla taste, or at least it was better than the day before.
I’m always trying to find ways to get protein since I basically survive on carbs, but there’s a good reason no one ever knows what “whey” is–it’s because whey tastes like shit and curds can be battered and deep fried, enjoyed by millions across the upper northwest/midwest. It’s a local delicacy in Minneapolis.
But this girl is doing more (and regular) weight training. She wants to grab ahold of the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in 2 months and crush it like the wilted flowers that will be littering the course.
NO WALK BREAKS, NO MERCY.
Worst thing you ever ate in an attempt to be healthy?
