With kids back to school and it the busiest time of year for my job, a little boost in my day is always appreciated. Some days, I sit down at my desk and before I know it, my stomach is rumbling and I look at the clock and it’s almost 1 pm. No wonder I am so hungry. But it never fails that I am right in the middle of something and I really don’t want to stop what I am doing.
I recently received some of the new Boost High Protein chocolate shakes to try, thanks to ChickAdvisor. Because I am forever watching my weight, I have tried meal replacement shakes in the past without a lot of success. I was always left still feeling hungry shortly afterwards. With these shakes containing 15g of protein, I was optimistic that perhaps these shakes would hold me out a little longer.
First, I have to say that the taste of these shakes is definitely better than others that I have tried. Others that I have tried have often tasted very chalky and not appealing at all. Most times I wouldn’t even want to finish them. The Boost shakes are not too chocolaty and no chalky aftertaste. They also come in Vanilla and Strawberry flavors which I am anxious to try. And paired with a banana or an apple and it kept my hunger under control until I could get home to make dinner.
These shakes have really been helpful this week with work being so busy. My hunger was controlled and I wasn’t feeling the need to pop into the burger joint next door by 3 o’clock in the afternoon and totally ruining my diet. I will try and keep these stocked in my fridge at work to help me on the busy days or the days I forget my lunch so that I can make a healthy lunch choice.
