  1. Hi Martha,

    I had a great protein breakfast at Starbucks the other day with my coffee.
    In the case with the sandwiches they had a protein pack. It contained a hardboiled egg (already peeled), a small mini bagel, 2 hunks of cheese (not too big) some apple slices, grapes and a packet of peanut butter. It was delicious and felt very satisfied. Great way to start the morning. I would not eat eggs every day but when you are on the run, this is a real treat.

    Hilkka

  2. I agree that is a great snack or meal. The protein (as opposed to all the other high carb muffins and bagels) holds you longer.

  3. I sort of don’t agree with you about this one, but I can see that you made your point well and that you are an intelligent person. It was well spoken and enjoyable, and neat to hear someone else point of view.
