Carnation Instant Breakfast, I drink it in the car. I hate bars or else I would eat those to stay full longer.

For those of you that go the smoothie route, do you find that it fills you up for a while? The thought of eating so early makes me feel sick, but a smoothie sounds good.. I just wonder if it would sustain me.. Would you guys recommend protein powder (or will it pack on pounds)?

I will be getting up at 5 for clinicals... Which is basically the middle of the night to me, and I don't mind eating at night, so maybe I'll be okay. :lol2:

I use protein powder in my shakes and drink them as meal replacements and to lose weight so as long as they aren't putting you over in calories you certainly won't gain anything. I have a few favorites but here's one for my banana split protein shake:

1/2 c milk

1 frozen banana (cut up in chunks and freeze in ziplock baggie, frozen makes the shake frothy and thick)

1/2 c or so frozen strawberries

1/2 c or so frozen pineapple

1 60 calorie double chocolate jello pudding cup

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

Blend or use the whip setting and enjoy! This makes like 32 ounces so have a BIG cup! :yeah:

on a typical morning i do a smoothie or greek yogurt with preserves with a multivitamin and eight oz of coffee. i make a 34 ounce smoothie using:

one banana

half a cup of frozen blue berries (i buy them fresh and freeze them on a cookie sheet then put them in a ziploc bag....way cheaper than the freezer section)

frozen mangos or peaches (i also cutand freeze them myself)

half a cup of fat free vanilla yogurt

a cup of kefir- its sort of a liquid yogurt type drink, a little tangy

this usually keeps me full for about 3-4 hours. for a snack between classes or drive to clinical i always have a banana, apples, or carrots and a sandwich or wrap. i also drink lots of water throughout the day so i stay hydrated.

If its a clinical day.... a bowl of oatmeal with raisins and some oj.

If its a lecture day, probably nothing until at 7-8am.

I need the protein and energy to be on the floor at 6:30, so I gotta eat early, and coffee actually make me sleepy more than most people.

I grab a string cheese or a hard boiled egg from my fridge and an apple if I'm in a hurry. If I have a bit of time then some oatmeal, or a toasted english muffin with peanut butter and that apple sliced up on it.
