After briefly losing consciousness a few weeks ago, I visited with my doctor. We believe that my episode had to do with low blood sugar, and general malnutrition. Basically, I haven’t been eating enough. Or often enough, or the right stuff.
Generally, I try to eat foods that are obviously plant and animal origin, and not so much things that come in boxes, mixes or powders. But, my typical routine has failed me, it seems. What went off the rails that I don’t have an appetite is another question, but the doc is not too worried about that, so I won’t either.
That brings me to my query. Does anyone have a recommendation for protein powder?
I enjoy kefir (like thin, drinkable yogurt) , no sweetener / no flavor, for breakfast. But, that’s not (apparently) enough. My mom recommended this one, because she and my sisters like it.
Dad seems to not like the flavor. He enjoys complaining, so I didn’t put much stock in it, but the truth is that it doesn’t taste great to me either. I could put sugar with it, but I don’t want a sweet breakfast.
So, does anyone have suggestions for protein powders that don’t have a flavor, or are mild, or just not gross? Ideally, I’d be able to try them in small containers before buying in bulk, but I’m willing to take a leap.
Some of the ones I’ve found are marketed at folks trying to “get swole” and apart from the grammar issue, I don’t really want to gain weight or muscle. I just want to keep my blood sugar on an even keel, and not have to choke down solids so early in the day.
