Yogurt, whey protein and a Clif bar: Another quick and fairly low carb meal.


Posted on October 9th, 2009 by Jeff Thiboutot M.S.

Here is another quick meal; 1 cup organic whole milk plain yogurt (Trader Joes brand), 1 scoop of whey protein (Jay Robb brand), ½ of a blueberry crisp Clif bar adn 1tbs flax seed meal (I blended the protein powder and flax meal with the yogurt, and broke up the bar (1/2 the bar) into small pieces and through it into the mix). I had this for lunch today.

Here is the meal breakdown. It is a bit on the higher side for carbs, but for a low-carb, non-ketogenic eating style it should fit in fine.

An additional note about convenience; you could have made an additional serving of this (using the other ½ of the bar) and had it for another meal in the same day, dinner for instance. Having this twice in one day would give you about 68 grams of carbs. As long as your other meal (if you had one) is a low carb meal, say less than 10 grams (i.e., a big piece of grilled salmon and a big salad or a few cups of steamed broccoli with butter), your daily carb total would probably be in a good weight loss range. Having the same meal twice in one day is fine and it can make food preparation easier.
