I'm so happy to join you again here on the LivingAfterWLS Blog. The research side of my work with weight loss surgery has taken priority of my time in 2016, but I am happy to say that my 2017 schedule is much more favorable for writing and sharing with you all I've learned. I have some great things to share that will help each of us achieve lasting successful weight management for life after surgery. I am looking forward to actively publishing to this blog, issuing our Newsletters, and participating with you in social media in the coming days, weeks and months of 2017.

Earlier this year we published a newsletter that featured this Multi-Use DIY Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix recipe and ways to use it as we actively seek to increase our daily protein intake. This newsletter was so well received by our subscribers it has been our most popular publication of 2016. You can read this newsletter in full online in our archive: Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix
Multi-Use DIY Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix
2 cups Pure Protein Plus French Vanilla Dietary Supplement or your favorite vanilla flavored protein powder*
1 1/2 cups Carnation Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground mace
1 pinch ground cloves
Directions: In a large bowl whisk together all dry ingredients. Store mixture in an airtight container (I like to use recycled mason jars) in a cool dark place. Use often for best freshness and to promote improved health with increased protein intake. In humid climates mixture may be stored refrigerated. Shake container well before using to ensure ingredients are well blended and evenly dispersed.
*For best results use a protein powder that contains at least 15 grams protein and 5 or fewer grams carbohydrate per serving.
Nutritional Estimate (based on products specified in recipe): Per 2-Tablespoon serving: 218 calories; 8 grams protein; 6 grams carbohydrate; 1 gram dietary fiber; 0 grams fat. A good source of vitamin D, calcium, B vitamins, and electrolytes.
