    I just received for the first time At Larges Strawberry Nitrean. Chris wasn't kidding when he said it tasted good. It tastes great!. I used to drink ATW's Strawberry, whihc I though was alright but it can't beat ATLarge's :nope:

    I have been drinking it with heavy cream to round out my macro's. That is great! :tu:

    This contributes A LOT to the taste/texture quality, IMO. 1 TB goes a long way.

    And I am hoping you will be adding more flavors to the line. [​IMG] As I e-mailed you, banana woudl be great.... so would a chocolate mint. And a 3rd would be orange. In that order of preference.

    What...you have Strawberry now?! I agree w/Justitia, if you added some mint to that chocolate I'd never buy another protein powder again.

    A small splash of mint extract to chocolate Nitrean gives pretty much the same or better results than most pre-mixed anyway (as long as you have an extract that isn't too alcohol tasting).

    I also use a lot of orange or lemon extract with my vanilla Nitrean when I'm in the mood. Orange can give you that "Orange Julius" type of feel when blended with ice.

    I would like to add that while I've not generally been very pleased with Strawberry flavored protein products, Strawberry Nitrean is definitely the best (although I still prefer Chocolate by a longshot).

    However, ATW Strawberry remains would of the most gut-churning flavors I've ever tasted. Most of their flavors taste too artificial, but that one felt like drinking paint. Strange since I actually think they're Chocolate Hydrolyzed Whey tastes really good (while their Chocolate Whey Isolate makes me nauseous, go figure).

    I was just teasing you tennisball. Though I was putting heavy cream in my strawberry Nitrean, that is not the only time or only source of fat in my daily intake. I take 1 mg fish oil cap every morning, 1 teaspoon of cod liver oil every morning during the winter (4.5 g) and now that is closing in on summer, I am substituting more fish Oils caps to replace that. I also take 2tsp of flax oil with Lignans when I take the fish oil and another Tablespoon with another protein shake over the course of the day. The fish and cod oils are mercury free.

    I east salmon, Chilean sea bass, and low fat, fresh, wild caught fish meal 5 days a week.

    So I think I get plenty of the nutrients I need from fish.

    My fat sources are those listed above as well as heavy cream from grass-fed cows, organic dry-roasted almonds and peanut butter, some organic olive oil, organic natural coconut oil and fat from very lean grass-fed hormone- and antibiotic-free beef, lamb and pork, as well as chicken thighs with skin on them.

    I also eat eggs with extra egg whites 3 x a week for breakfast. Other sources of completely clean protein are low-fat cottage cheese (2 x a week) and part-skim ricotta cheese.

    I have 1-3 protein shakes a day when I do not have a solid meal instead. I try to eat 6 times a day.

    My carbs come from salad veggies or fibrous veggies (broccoli, etc.) and on weight days, baked sweet potato or rice, all organic and steel cut oats.

    The fruits I eat are: apples, Pineapple, bananas, strawberries, blueberries. Sometimes I eat mango, cantaloupe and honeydew.

    I avoid all forms of soy like the plague and I don't consume other oil except some canola oil that is in some of the organic fresh salad dressings that I buy for my salad (1 - 2 TBSP/day)

    My nutritional issues revolve around under-eating for the day, or eating my first meal very late in the morning or eating cheat food more than I should.

    But my basic food plan is pretty well balanced and clean.

    I rock the strawberry as well and it is by far, the best tasting protein mix I've ever had.
