Protein Shakes and MyBariatricPantry.com Review

It's been a while since I told you all that I ordered lots and lots of protein shake samples to see if I could become a protein shake girl.... and guess what?!

I think I am!

I think I love protein shakes!

My favorites so far:

Matrix Peanut Butter Cookie
Matrix Bananas and Cream
Matrix Mint Cookie

I even got Christy hooked on these, same exact flavors too!

I mix each of them with unsweetened almond milk (only adds 30 cals for a whole cup!).  I like to mix in PB2 (awesome product-check it out if you don't know what it is) to the Banana flavor, or SF Torani Chocolate Syrup to the Banana or Peanut Butter flavors.  The Mint Cookie shakes need nothing added to them.  They're amazing as is.  I could live off of these shakes.... oh wait.  After revision, I'm going to for a while.

As for MyBariatricPantry, we've had a little rough start due to some shipping issues that were out of their control, but I've heard such great things about them that I'm willing to give them another chance.  Plus, their customer service has been awesome.  When I contacted them to tell them I hadn't received my (second) order, they sent it FedEx, next day delivery, and included some free samples of the Nectar protein.

I love to pay it forward, so I'm sending those free samples to a friend in Germany.  She is lactose intolerant and has told me how difficult it is to find lactose free protein, and Nectar just-so-happens to be, so I want to share.  It feels really good to do something nice for someone :)


  1. Eggface has great recipe ideas

  2. You are a stronger person than me! I keep Unjury on hand (because I use it every day in my coffee), and I'm going to stock pile it to use up some FSA funds--but I don't really drink shakes to drink shakes. I have never been a shake/smoothie person. And good things come to those who pay it forward!

    1. If you wear glasses/contacts, I suggest a new pair of those with your FSA funds as well!

      I think you'd like these shakes, I'd be happy to send you a sample of each :)

  3. I am obsessed with all things chocolate mint lately. I REALLY need to order that Matrix.

  4. Yelp, I guess I know what I am going to try next!
