[quote=dak1lls;4985899]Please, please tell me how you make waffles with the cheesecake pudding! I have some and would love to try it!

I would give credit if I could remember where I first found it.

IP Waffle Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 packet IP Pudding mix (any flavor)
1 egg or 2 egg whites, beaten
2 oz. of water
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
small pinch of sea salt

Directions:

Beat egg and water until mixed. Add salt and baking power. Stir in one IP pudding packet. Mixture will be very thick. Pour into greased waffle iron and cook until it stops steaming.

I have tried making them in advance and reheating in the toaster at work. They are fine the same day, but don't have the same texture when made more than a few hours ahead.

Definitely be on the lookout for Aspartame!

Also, I know you are trying to watch your $$, so I encourage you to also look at Nashua Nutrition site, which have drinks/puddings running about $12 per box and as I mentioned before, I recognize TONS of items from the Protein Store as being the exact products on Nashua, though for some reason, the Protein Store chooses not to name the actual brand of each item. (Some of the main brands you will see other IPers use from there are: ProtiDiet, Proti-Thin, HealthSmart, Weight Loss Systems.) In addition to Nashua, I know people buy from a few other stores that have similar pricing. It's just a few dollars difference 12 vs 19, but what you save might mean more clothes in your NEW size!!

Have fun and relax!
I am expecting my first order from Nashu tomorrow or Friday!!! I'm excited to start using some alternatives and save some money!!!

Default Fit & Lean Pudding

I received my first package from Netrition with Fit & Lean Dutch Chocolate Pudding (pre-made). I enjoyed it (after adding some salt to it) and I think I like it even better than the IP pre-made pudding. I like having some portable snacks to keep on hand and I especially like that this is non-restricted. I received a package of vanilla, also, and can't wait to try it.

Awesome - you will love it! Did you get the Lifetime membership so you can save 10% forever? If not you can do it later when you are sure you are going you keep ordering.

Default Chocolate Fix

So, I am going to make another Nashua order soon, and I am thinking of a chocolate drink, heated. While taste is subjective, for those of you that have had several varieties, I am wanting to get the richest chocolate flavor I can find. Sweet isn't my thing - RICH is...

Totally like the Proti-Diet Oatmeal Maple oatmeal. Makes me feel like I'm having a real breakfast.

Down 9 pounds for the two weeks!

I absolutely agree! I only like the pancake syrup and I can use the sun dried tomato vinagerette for a marinade. Just threw out the peanut butter today and I just bought it. It all tastes so chemically (word?) to me.

Congrats on a great loss so far!

I purchased the Proti-Diet Maple Oatmeal and made it once....um, yeah, haven't made it again because it came out so watery. Not sure what I did wrong? I folowed the instructions on the packet. Any advice...I have a whole box now that I haven't been brave enough to try again!

Don't throw it out! You can make zucchini oatmeal muffins with it. I don't have the recipe handy on my tablet, but you can do a google search and use the words ideal protein zucchini muffin 3fatchicks.com and you should have no problem finding it. I make them when I am craving baked goods for breakfast. I spritz a little ICBNB spray on them and they are yummy.

I use it all the time as oatmeal. Interesting, because the last person who posted about it said it came out thick like glue after following the directions!!

I add water to the consistency I like it but after stirring, I put it in the microwave for one minute (be sure to watch it as it puffs up so the bowl needs to be a little larger than you might think). I stir it and micro again for 30-45 secs. I think it cooks up smoother this way.

I also use it in muffins, cookies, pancakes, etc. Bought the GIANT container of it so I don't run out. YUMMMMMM!!!!!!

I just ordered a couple more things from Nashua I am feeling much better about this after trying a few products and really liking them, the chocolate mint pudding/shake is beyond amazing I can't believe it's not a restricted and then the caramel delight bars YUMMMMY lol I am now excited to do alternatives.

On another note I haven't liked the IP puddings, but today I tried a muffin/cookie/cake with the chocolate. No zuchinni this time, just egg white, stevia, a dash of vanilla extract, and the packet, it made a nice cookie/muffin type thing. This time I really enjoyed it! I love making "bread" with the packets.

Default Pb2

I really don't like WF peanut butter. PB2 seems like a good choice. Has anyone tried it and is it ok?

Unfortunately, PB2 has fat & carbs & sugars so it doesn't fit the 0/0/0 (fat/carb/sugar) requirement for P1

In the recipe it states one packet makes 3 muffins for me.
