Hi Everyone! How are you? Did you have a nice Tuesday? Mine was pretty good :) After work, I came home to take the Frankster for a walk and then taught Body Step.
As part of my lunch, I tried this protein powder:
I mixed it into milk (I don't like milk alone, but flavored I can do!). I mixed and mixed and it was still rather clumpy/chunky (anyone else have this problem)? The flavor itself was pretty good and it was filling, but the chunkiness made me gag! Maybe this is a powder that should only be mixed into yogurt/oatmeal or used to make shakes???? Thoughts?
I also received a really fun package from Josh's mom that contained these TJ's goodies:
Ok, now onto the most important part of my post....today Franklin Beans turned three! As part of the celebration, we went for a nice walk and he got his birthday steak (a Frank tradition). Here are some pics of my favorite English Bulldog to celebrate his big day:
aww, love it!! happy birthday frank :)
Happy Birthday Frank! I never mix or shake the Jay Robb by hand - I always blend it in my Vita-Mix. That thing leaves no clumps! Glad you liked the taste...in between gags. :)
Happy Birthday Frank!~
I hate lumpy protein powder. I have to use a blender in order to like drinking it.
Happy Birthday Frank! Is that his birthday meal? :)
Love Frank!! Happy birthday to him!!
Frank and Lando sittin in a tree...
I had 20 unread posts in my google reader, and as soon as I saw the title of your's - your's was the very first i clicked on!
happy birthday franky bear!
Happy Birthday Frank!!
The chalkiness of protein powder grosses me out a little, so I always blend it into smoothies and then it tastes great.
I just bought that Cashew Macadamia Delight Trek Mix. Hope it's good!
Happy Birthday Frank! That last picture of him cracks me up!
Have a fabulous night!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK!
He is just TOO cute!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK! TOO CUTE!
Aww, happy birthday Frank! haha.
Yeah, it seems like every protein powder I've had clumps like that in milk and agreed, it makes me gag, too! I can't drink it just in milk.
happy bday frank!
i tried that protein powder too and totally didn't like it. i thought it stayed chunky too!
oh boy, what a cute doggie! Happy bday to him =]
Ooh, black lentils, never tried those! Let us know if they're different!!
And Happy Birthday Frank!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK!!
I don't think I can get over how much I love your dog!
Oh Jay Robb and his budging biceps - good to know about the protein powder because that's the kind I have but have been too chicken to try out ;)
happy birthday frank!! his birthday steak sounds like a great tradition :)
i love the pictures of frank! oh my gosh! so funny. i actually spit my water out laughing when i saw them on the slip and slide.
We got some snow, but I had to work all day. :(
Erica...I agree about the taste/texture of JRobb! Use some crushed ice or one or two slices of frozen banana or fruit (if using vanilla). Once its in the blender, its great! Btw, love your blog :)
Happy Birthday Frank!
AW! Yay for puppy photos :)
AW! Yay for puppy photos :)
Happy Birthday Franks!
Awww doggies on a slip n' slide! too cute.
I have the same problem with clumps in protein powder. It always works better if I blend the milk and powder.
Happy birthday to Frank! I loooove those TJs 12 grain crackers.
I've never tried Jay Robb plain before, but now I know to steer clear!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANKSTER!! You are a celebrity in the blogging world, did you know that? We love you!
happy B-day Frank! You're awesome! :D
SSSsoooo cute! Happy Birthday Frank!!!!!
I like that same powder---BUT NEVER IN MILK :)
sprinkled in my oats.
Thank you all for your sweet Frank comments and for your thoughs/advice on the protein powder! I will have to give this brand another try once I have my blender back!
Your dog is absolutely adorable!!! I can't stop looking at his sad face and going AWWW! Happy birthday to you, so glad I stumbled upon this blog.
Happy Birthday Franklin. Lucky dog getting that steak.

GNC has plastic shaker cups that are supposed to mix but i prefer my bullet mixer or blender.
Happy Birthday to Frank!! You are so lucky...you always get the funnest packages in the mail! Good for you! SO this wasn't the best protein powder? Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully you will like the next one. I am counting on you to find me one...ha! JK!! Have a great day!

I use the Perfect Meal protein powder by Garden of Life for years and love it. Has everthing in it and no crappy stuff.
Happy Birthday to Frank! - a day late. :) Only 3, oh my, Macy has some years on him. She just turned 6. Not sure if that relationship would work out or not. ;)
Those black lentils look so interesting. I've not seen them before. And that Trek Mix sounds out of this world. Great goodies!
