Coffee yumminess protein shake - Fit Frappe review

I love coffee, in case you did not know.  I love the smell of it.  I love the taste of it.  Love it.  I only drink one cup of coffee a day, but I enjoy sipping on it hot or iced while praying in the morning.

And, I am a bit of a health nut, in case you did not know that either.  I frequently drink protein shakes after workouts, or as a quick meal supplement (I eat 5 times a day) when I am on the run.

So, I was so excited to try Big Train's Fit Frappe!  A protein shake and coffee in one.



Here is some information about Fit Frappe from Big Train's web site:
  • Versatile- can be served hot, iced or as a frozen frappé
  • Outrageously delicious, full flavored café style drink
  • Similar caffeine levels as coffee (100-280 mg) depending on flavor
  • Long lasting energy from protein using Calcium Caseinate
  • Excellent meal replacement
  • Gluten free
  • Very low sugar- less than 1g per 16oz serving
  • 5-6 net carbs

I have tried MANY protein shakes in many flavors.  And I have had some very bad ones and some very good ones and I will admit, the Fit Frappe is one of my favorites.  It has a creamy texture and the taste is great.  It did not have the usually "protein shake" flavor (if you have had protein shakes, you know what I am talking about!). The Mocha is super yummy, but it also comes in Vanilla Latte, Espresso, Chocolate, and Vanilla. I usually only have protein shakes in a blender with ice and I LOVED this one as a frozen drink. It could totally pass for an expensive coffee house frappucino.  You would not guess that it was a healthy protein shake that is only 130 calories (when made with water) and delivers 20 grams of protein!  I made mine with milk, and it was very satisfying.  For me, it is the perfect, after workout drink in the morning. I am interested to try the Espresso hot and see how it tastes . . . I will let you know!


Now, I am a purist, so I like my FitFrappe just the way it is, but you can find lots of great recipes here to make fun and flavorful protein drinks.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

On Waiting

This past weekend we went to a book party for a priest friend who had his second book Living the Beatitudes:A Journey to Life in Christ published last fall.  The party was hosted by another Catholic author.  And, after the cake was cut and people were sitting quietly, the host of the party began to speak.  He began to talk about how great this book is and how insightful so much of it is.  Then he began to share quotes from it.  And I felt as if he chose two of them for me:

"Waiting is the training ground of trust."

"Beauty is the crescendo of waiting"
Now, although we have this book and my husband has read it, I have not (sorry, Fr. B).  But that night, I sat with the book while my hubby and I sat down to attempt to watch a movie and I scoured the book for the above quotes.  Too shy to ask the host for the pages for these quotes, I skimmed page by page until I found them.  And after I found the first quote, I was confronted with line after line about waiting.  I read…
