Today's tip/trick is actually a food tip. I like to have a protein shake because I am not much of a meat eater and I lack protein every day. On my hunt for the greatest protein shake in the world I found that most of them are loaded with carbs and sugar. The whole point for me is to have a shake with protein and not a lot of carbs. I found a few that meet my guidelines and the best one that I have is the Atkins Protein Shake.
It has 160 calories, 2 net carbs, and 15 g of protein. And it tasted pretty good. Sometimes I don't have the time to mix one in the morning and other times I want to have a low carb high protein snack and these come in little travel containers so I don't have to take the mix and the milk with me and try to keep it all cold until I can mix it later in the day.
Another thing about this shake is that it is normally on sale or has a few bonus drinks in it so it comes at a pretty good price.
