I just made my first Frappa! The book was right - it is almost miraculous! I dumped the whey in and watched as a watery, icy mixture turned into a lovely whipped drink! I'm very impressed.
Also embarassed though, because this was my second attempt - I got my wooden spoon too close to the blades and chopped off a bit of my wooden spoon into the frappa . I don't think my blender is going to be able to handle icy drinks very well. I need a bit more liquid and less ice to make it swirl up.

I've ' killed' numerous blenders just with doing frozen banana smoothies, and using them a lot. I have never had anything but cheap blender, though, most often from the thrift store. If I ever get rich.... a good blender would be a good investment. :-) Till then I figure I just spend a little every year replacing cheap ones I burn up!
What brand of protein whey powder is the right kind, or can you use any storebrand? I saw some at walmart in the vitamin/weight loss section that was pretty inexpensive. Is there any small sample like containers of the whey or glucconamon so that I can try it and see if I like it?

Momnetta, they recommend Swanson brand whey protein powder but if you buy another kind just make sure to look at the carb count. I'm sure a moderator can post a more exact answer but I think they recommended no more than 1 carb per serving and not one that has a soy base!
I used the rest of my Muscle Milk brand protein powder when I first started because that's all I had and it had 3 carbs per serving. I figured it was better than others I had seen and I read on Facebook they said to just use up what you had so you didn't waste what I'd already spent money on...I haven't seen small containers in stores but you may be able to find smaller sizes online!

Swanson's Premium Vanilla is a great priced whey protein, there is a great post by Serene of what you want in tweaks and tips. I have heard there are no plan approved powders at Wal-Mart. The most important things you are looking for is an isolate and no artificial sweetners.
Swanson's has a small and a large container of the on plan version.
msjongg: Just wondering... Are rice noodles on plan?

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
