Revisiting Some Old Friends

February 9, 2011 at 7:40 am 9 comments

Hey everyone!!!!!

First off, I tried a new granola bar right now! Its watermelon and lemon flavored and tastes like summer!!!!

Its light so I paired it with a cup of yummy fruit salad yogurt for my morning snack! So good!! =D

This morning I also visited my old school friends. I found out when their break was and walked over. It was so great to see everyone and I can’t wait to visit again!!!!! I think that being around other people keeps me from worrying about everything else so much. One of the downsides to homeschooling is that I don’t get out as much, which normally, is just fine by me. =P I did miss seeing people my age though, so I’ll definitely be visiting my school again soon!!!!

Thank you all so much for your supportive comments on yesterday’s post! I love you guys! =D It helps so much to know that ya’ll are supporting my as well as my awesome family!!!! =D I do have a protein powder related question or two:

Is there a way to make it dissolve better? When I mixed mine up in the smoothie, it was super-grainy. The flavor was great, though, so I was wondering if the graininess was due to something that I did wrong or  if that’s just a side-effect of protein powders.

Also, what are some good protein powder recipes for one? I am really trying to supplement my diet, so that I get all of the minerals and vitamins that I need, and I was wondering what other ways there are to use my protein besides just smoothies. Its strawberry flavored, by the way.

In keeping with the treat yourself generously theme of the week, I’d say that today, my treat was spending time with friends that I haven’t seen in at least 6 months. =D What about you?

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    That granola bar sounds interesting! Never heard of that flavor before! I think I’m going to treat myself to a break! I’m always busy busy busy… sometimes it’s nice to just relax!

    On the protein powder…they can definitely be grainy! I think it mostly depends on the type you use (at least, in my experience). The smoothest type I’ve found is sun warrior..not grainy at all! But I don’t know any tricks for the grainy ones…
    Today I treated myself generously by buying an iPad—I love it!

      Ok, well, I tried making banana soft serve and stirring in the powder, and that helped with the graininess for some reason……
      Awesome treat! =D

    what a cool flavor! I’d love that bar. For protein powders, I use xantham gum and guar gum to make it creamier. 1/2 tsp of each or less. more milk and in a blender. See if that works!
