Does anyone know of foods that are helpful with combating fatigue?
Also does anyone know of any healthy snacks (protein) that are easy to eat between clients (when you only have 5 mins) or that are easy to take with you (no refrigeration) that won't increase your waistline?
<br><br>I looked at the label for this product and it has Splenda in it.<br>I try to avoid all artificial sweeteners since they send my intestinal tract into a fit. Splenda being one of them. <br> <br>Lets see, shake/smoothie that has protein? www.choices4u.net and look for Transitions. Tell her I sent you <br>

I try to avoid all artificial sweeteners since they send my intestinal tract into a fit. Splenda being one of them.
We had soy beans growing in the field next to us and tried them out before they dried. They are pretty tasty.how about edamame in a thermal bag?
Not sure about these. I don't know if I have had anything with sugar alcohols. I'll have to see if I can find something small with the alcohols in it and try it out.Did you see the transitions bars? I think they primarily have the sugar alcohols....how do they treat you?
From what I have read Splenda is sugar with a chlorine molecule added so your body doesn't digest the sugar. Not too appealing if you ask me.I don't want to hijack this thread, but what is the deal with Splenda? It is "made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar" Why not use sugar?
What is stevia? A shrub native to Paraguay, used for over 1500 years by the native Guarani Indians. A herb with an abundance of positive effects. The whole leaf contains numerous phytonutrients and trace minerals and is much sweeter than sugar with out negative effects. It can sweeten any drink with no calories, no carbohydrates, no tooth decay and is diabetic safe. Stevia nourishes the pancreas and does not raise blood glucose levels, making it not only safe for diabetics but also beneficial. Since there are no calories or carbohydrates, stevia is an excellent weight loss aid. It does not contains the negative side effects reported with the use of artificial sweeteners including aspartame. Adding stevia to your diet on a regular basis, it has also been reported that it can help minimize hunger sensations, cravings for sweets or fatty foods, aide in digestion, decrease hypertension without effecting normal blood pressure, stabilize blood glucose levels, shorten recovery time from cold and flu and aide in addictions to tobacco and alcohol. When used in toothpaste or mouthwash, cavities and gum disease is reduced due to its antibacterial properties.
He also recomends Greensfirst, by Doctors for Nutrition. It's a powder that is mixed with water. Gives a good boost and counts for 10 servings of veggies. I wouldn't replace my leafy greens with it, but it's a nice "pick-me-up". Tastes like Green Tea.
