    I'm jumping in here too, I really need some fresh new ideas.
    I'm exhausted after the Easter break, so much bad eating, starting again on Monday.

    Protein shakes can be great but are really not necessary unless you are heavily weight training or your diet is protein deficient. I use a blended protein ( synergy by international protein) and I usually blend it with fruit (berries or pureed baby fruit if out and about).

    I totally agree that you have to be wary of salespeople! Most won't listen to you and just want a sale! Try to look for a quality protein containing whey isolate, whey concentrate and caseinate. Also make sure the carb and sugar levels are low. Watch out for the type of artificial sweetner if you have any sensitivity too. Unfortunately most good protein supplements are also expensive. And flavours do vary so if you are near a bodybuilding shop they often have tasting days which can be helpful (also larger bodybuilding shows often have trade stands that you can try products before buying - sucks to purchase a 3 to 5kg tub and then discover it tastes like poo!)

    And yes, protein within an hour if training is ideal. I've never really used it much pre training (I've used amino acids instead) but post weight training is when your body is receptive and in repair mode

    Does anyone make smoothies with spinach in them? I got some today and was thinking about adding it to a smoothie but unsure how it will turn out!

    Tonights dinner....miso soup. You can basically add anything you want to it. We fill a bit pot about 3/5 full of water, add a massel stock cube and 2 heaped spoons of white miso paste. 2 things we always have it ours is mushrooms (either ****ake or button) and Japanese marinated tofu. The veggies just depend on what we have in the house. Tonight it's mixed frozen veg (carrots, broccoli and cauliflower) but some nights it might be broccolini, bok choy and carrots. You can add chicken or seafood to it as well. We add soba noodles to ours but you could add any noodles you want or omit them altogether.

    So quick and tasty.

    I do. Handful of baby spinach with 1/2 banana, 1 pear and 1cm2 of ginger, lots of ice. It turns out fluoro green but is sweet enough that the kids love it.

    "Directions: The "cake" is watermelon. Cut the ends off the watermelon to form the top & bottom of the cake; then cut away the rind from the sides of the cake.
    Use cookie cutters to cut cantaloupe flowers and honeydew leaves/ Use toothpicks to attach to cake.
    Decorate with additional strawberries, blueberries, apples, grapes, and oranges. Simple & yummy! —"
