Do you ever replace a meal with a protein shake?  
How about for a quick and healthy snack?

About a month and a half ago my husband and I started drinking protein shakes for dinner instead of a heavy meal.  I feel GREAT!  A bonus is that I've found a protein powder that is Non-GMO!!

  10. Hi there via Say G'day... I'm in the habit of swapping the odd meal for a shake and agree totally that it's good to NOT eat a big meal at night time. Lunch like a prince instead! I've been enjoying green smoothies... must try your peanut butter one.
