Do some proteins blend better than others?
I tried to add protein to my coffee so that I could have the carrot cake muffins in the morning with my coffee and still meet my protein goal. But the protein powder I used wouldn't mix well with my coffee at all; it kept separating and getting chunky and was so bad I had to dump it. I've heard...

I'm not a vegetarian, but I've been eating soybeans (edamame) in single serving bags as one of my servings of protein during the day. I like the idea of having one source of non-animal protein and in the list on this site "soy products" is include as an acceptable item. What do y'all...
