The journey began, what seems like a lifetime ago. Let me start at the beginning. I was nothing but a stick and my weight kept going down. I am 5’8” and at my lowest weight, I was a 105 pounds soaking wet and holding my suitcase of a purse. I looked terrible! I was a skeleton. All you could see when you looked at me was my bones poking through my skin. My muscle tone was gone because my body was malnutritioned so badly that it was taking all the nutrients it could from my body. So basically, I was starving to death! Not only did I look like death but I felt like death also. This is how my journey began…what came next on this long journey will be my next blog post….
Lets transition to the present and how my days begin.
Today I will introduce a protein drink that has saved my life. I am not kidding! I drink a protein drink every day to get the protein I need. They say that Celiac people can’t absorb protein like normal people. They need extra.
With a lot of searching and a lot of trial and error, I found one that does not make me sick and tastes great also!
Drum roll please… …. ….
May I introduce my life saving Designer Whey Protein Drink! It is certified gluten free and does not contain any oat fiber or oats of any kind. That was an issue with me as I looked at protein drinks, it either was not certified gluten free or it had oats of some kind in it. Also, I had a hard time finding something that was nut and peanut free as I also am allergic to those but that is a whole other thing aside from Celiac disease.
So every morning I have a scoop of this great protein drink with 8 oz. of 1% milk. The flavors are French Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry and a few other I have yet to try but the Chocolate (big surprise) and the French Vanilla are my favorite!
