I started drinking protein smoothies several years ago when I worked through the exercise program P90X.
The program’s diet called for daily protein shakes, but given we were in the process of switching over to real food (and avoiding ingredients we couldn’t pronounce), I couldn’t bring myself to knowingly drink something with an ingredient list that looked like a foreign language.
So I did tons of research, made lots of smoothies and wrote a book on making protein smoothies without adding protein powder, called High Protein No Powder.
My husband has a not-so-secret secret love affair with this waffle recipe.
Actually, his love for waffles was kept secret for awhile. I’m thinking he didn’t want me to see how he must have both butter and syrup in every square hole of the waffle. That I might think he was a bit OCD about his meticulous smearing and pouring.
Well, I do think that, but we’ve been married nearly 11 years so far and if his only weird tendency is to love butter and syrup and this waffle recipe, I say things are going pretty well.
