Premier Protein Pancakes

Every weekend my sweet husband makes pancakes or waffles for our family.  This has been a tradition for many years.  I love it because I get a break and it makes the kids feel great because it means a lot to them due to the awesome tradition. All you do is swap out the milk for a Vanilla ready to drink premier protein shake or 2 scoops of the premier protein powder!  YUM and a must try!!

 

 

 

Best Go To Snacks!

Here is a great list of go to snacks if your a Type 2 diabetic as myself.  These snacks are actually healthy for all that are wanting to live a lower carbohydrate lifestyle.

*Hard boiled egg

*Almonds  (This is my number 1 go to snack)

*Greek Yogurt –  The high protein keeps you full but look out for the sugar grams. Some are higher then others.

*Cottage cheese-  You can dress this up by adding some berry’s on top

*String Cheese!! On the go I am always looking for something quick and fast and string cheese is my 2nd favorite snack.

*Beef Jerky

*Peanut butter

 

Premier Protein Helps keep my blood sugars on track

 

So I have been using Premier Protein   a few months now and I have noticed a big difference in my blood sugar numbers.  They are so much lower.  I feel like I have finally found a product that can really help esp with in between snack or when I am in a big hurry.  I love this product.  I feel like I could brag about it often because I want others to know the things that help me with my diabetes.

With Shakes and Bars the carbs being so low and protein so high they are perfect.  So many choices in flavors and as you can tell with me posting the smoothies I really love experimenting with different ideas.   Costco by far has them for the best price for bars and shakes but they sell them everywhere.  I know I have Canada readers who have posted they sell them their as well.  Give them a try and test to see if it makes a difference with your blood sugars then leave a comment below and let me know.

Premier protein is also good for weight loss and when using a keto diet because it is very low in carbs.

Happy August!
