    Default P5: Paris’ Powerful Protein-Packing Porridge

    1 scoop French vanilla Designer Whey protein powder*
    2 tbsp wheat bran
    15 grams almonds, measured then ground
    ½ cup water
    1 tbsp flax seed, measured then ground
    2 tbsp vanilla, French vanilla or caramel sugar-free syrup
    2 tbsp half + half

    Grind the almonds in a coffee grinder and set aside; ditto the flax seed. This can be done safely up to 48 hours before preparation.

    Combine the protein powder, bran, ground almonds and water in a large microwave-safe bowl; whip vigorous with a whisk – there should be no lumps. Microwave uncovered for 50-75 seconds. Remove from microwave; mixture should look somewhat cake-y. Stir in the ground flax seed, half + half, syrup, and more warm water if a thinner porridge is preferred.

    Serves 1 @ 6 points with 26 g protein and 9 g of fiber! Only 5 points with fat-free half & half!

    * = Designer Whey can be purchased at both GNC and Trader Joe's.

    Paris, I see so many advertisements for protein powder/whey protein powder. Are all brands the same? Are they safe--I guess I equate them with the diet protein shakes that were found to be unhealthy/dangerous for you years ago. What's in 'em?

    Hi Katie!

    I'm not so sure if they are all the same or not... honestly, Designer Whey is the only one I've ever tried and I only tried it after Julie (of Skinny Daily) recommended it as her favorite. Designer Whey is definitely safe - 100% whey protein with a few natural thickeners like xanthan gum and cellulose.

    Personally, I do not care for shakes and the like, as they remind me of Slim Fast but I adore using the powder for porridge and it is beyond filling and delicious with the nuts and wheat bran added to it.

    HTH! :bcbsalute Paris

    Well then, girlfriend, I'm gonna get some! I've read that whey protein is the best souce of protein you can take in, and is extremely good at helping to build muscle, which we all need.

    Thanks, and I'll print out your recipe--I've got all the ingredients except for the whey!
