I just wanted to share with you what I think is a great product.
Its called Cream of Flax from Gram?s Gourmet. Its supposed to be for low carb dieters, but I read the nutrition facts and they were great:
1/2 cup dry:
total fat 5.17g
sat fat .7g
Total carb 11g
dietary fiber 8g
Very nice, I thought.
Then I went on to read the ingredients.
To my surprise, the first ingredient was whey protein concentrate, here it goes:
Ingredients: Whey protein concentrate, Golden Flaxseed meal, Wheat bran, Oat Fiber, Freeze dried coconut, natural flavors, salt.
They come in Vanilla almond and Cinnamon Toast flavors.
This is, I think, A great tool for me, since here in Panama I have never found any type of Flax product, and now I can add it to my diet.
I was also feeling I needed faster-acting proteins in the morning to halt catabolism immediately and turn me anabolic(whey).
I used to be having oatmeal with milk in the morning, but have gotten many reccomendations to cut on milk, because of the high II, lactose, blah blah blah, plus it doesnt gives me much fast acting proteins.
Sometimes I treat myself with some Grow! in my oatmeal, but try to limit this pleasure because I dont want my mom to think this weight lifting stuff is going to kill her pocket.
So, what do you think of this new tool I found as part of a complete breakfast?
I believe a good breakfast would be 1/2 cup Flax meal with 1 large banana (fast acting, anabolic proteins and Flax) 1 cup cottage cheese( slow absorbing, anti-catabolic proteins)with 1 cup blueberries.
Please review the nutrition facts of these product and its ingredients and tell me if its any good.
