Morning BUZZ! Jay Robb Protein Powder in Coffee!

MORNING BUZZ!  Jay Robb Protein Powder in Coffee “HOW TO”!

I LOVE my morning jolt of caffeine when I awake and just prior to going to the gym.  I get that extra energy boost I need for my workouts, and the caffeine and warm liquid of the coffee help keep my asthmatic airways open.  I also know it is very important to have protein prior to going to the gym to help you sustain your workout.  What if we marry my two favorites?  What would happen?

In this video, I highlight the simple technique you can do at home, WITH NO SPECIAL EQUIPMENT, to achieve a smooth and creamy CHOCOLATE PROTEIN COFFEE without the clumps.  After endless failures that led to excessive waste and many dumps down the drain, I couldn’t find just the right technique to get rid of those nasty clumps.  I didn’t want to “chew” my coffee!  The beauty of a high quality whey protein, like Jay Robb Chocolate Whey Protein or Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein, is that the protein will dissolve evenly if aggitated just right.  If you like extra foam, you can throw the coffee and the protein powder in your Vitamixor Blendtec blender and it will work fine.  But if you can’t afford a high power blender, this technique is right for you!

Excuse the shaky videographer… he had TOO much coffee that morning!

Traditional Polish Pierogi Recipe, Part I: WARNING- Not THAT Healthy, but YUMMY!

Part 1:  Traditional Polish Pierogie Recipe with Dr. Lori

One of my most favorite and treasured family traditions, and best holiday memories, is having Pierogies and Borscht on Christmas Eve.  Our family would go to Christmas Eve vigil mass and come home to the smell of borscht and carmelized onions from the pierogies Mom had spent days preparing for our feast.  We would even have contests to see who could eat the most.  Her specialty was sauerkraut, potato and cheese.  She would boil them, fry them in butter with carmelized onions, and put them in the oven to crisp up.  Later we would would eat them with either sweet cream, or my preference, sour cream.

Being gluten-intolerant I was trying to experiment with other types of flour to make these gluten free so I could enjoy them without the stomach distress later, but I quickly found that rice flour does not work and I had to throw the whole batch away!  Don’t experiment with a recipe on the day of the holiday… in this case it was Christmas Day!

In this 2-part video I will show you how to make perfect pierogie dough, the traditional way.  Then, come back in Part 2 for the conclusion of this recipe!
