I was mixing protein powder for a patient because her albumin was low. I was thinking I might benefit from it, cause I am basically a candy bar-cookie vegetarian. Most of my protein comes from eggs or dairy--no cheese, except cottage cheese.
Have any of you used protein powder? Any suggestions, tips, advice, brand or kind to buy? I was thinking it would be fewer calories than a protein bar, or something like Ensure..YUK..that healthy food resolution is doomed to failure!

~~~watch them protein bars...lots of carbs and some have refined sugars as well as hydrogenated oils...
Dr. Atkins has good bars and Spirutein is a good protein mix for shakes!
