Food Find – Premier Protein

Comments 2 Standard

So this has been one of my staples since rejoining back in February.  Everyone has their vice, their trigger when they are trying to lose weight, and mine is coffee.

I love coffee.  I mean I seriously love coffee.

The problem is I love all the stuff that comes with it – the flavored creamers, the sugar, the whipped cream.

It is amazing to me that I was probably drinking most of my Smartpoints in creamer before!  Seriously!  It’s a miracle that I did’t have more than 59 pounds to lose.

As a veteran Weight Watcher I knew this.  I tried all kinds of things when I was on the program before to make my coffee tolerable.  I remember buying those Swiss Miss light hot chocolate packets and using those, until I started noticing the big blobs of undisovable junk and it totally freaked me out.

So I knew I needed a way to make this work, and the people in my meeting kept talking about this Premier stuff.  Yeah, yeah chemicals blah blah.  I’ll take a minimal amount of chemicals over 59 pounds of fat thank you.

I actually really do try to stay away from that stuff and with the few exceptions I do.  But this, this I need.

I don’t ever drink them as protein shakes, I just put them in my coffee.  I love the chocolate one.  Vanilla is good too, strawberry is decent, and I found banana to be repulsive.

So if you find yourself needing a decent sub for your coffee, that’s my recommendation.  At only 2 Smartpoints it’s not bad.  I’ve found them the cheapest at Costco, but I’ve heard that Sam’s Club sells them at a good price too.

If you all have any tricks to jazz up your coffee please please leave it in the comments!

  1. How much do you put in and how many points is it? I love those drinks and that would be great if I could use those in place of coffee cream, as I’m using way too many points on coffee cream.

    • It is 2 points for the whole container. I usually use about 1/2 of it (I drink A LOT of coffee) and then just drink the rest. It has a lot of vitamins and minerals and tons of protein!
