A Newbie at Protein Shakes

Like I mentioned in my 30 Minute Hit blog post, I have been trying to do some more exercise and slowly that has been turning my eating habits as well.  The ladies at 30 Minute Hit suggested I try replacing one meal with a protein shake.  Not that I want to bulk up, but protein shakes can actually work as an appetite suppressant and help with digestion, metabolism etc.  So I have been trying this IsoGold protein powder in chocolate peanut butter in a shake every morning.  I mix mine with milk, water and ice.  It is surprisingly filling and satisfying.  I slowly sip it throughout my show in the morning and can stretch it out over about two hours.  I feel less hungry and more awake.  I am also shocked at just how delicious it is!  I feel like I am indulging in a milkshake for breakfast:)
I am by no means an expert, but wanted to share with you in case you are like me and have no idea why people drink these things!  You can get all kinds of brands, flavours and specifics.  Here's the nutritional info on the kind I have:
Do you have a protein shake of choice? Friends of mine add things like chia, fibre, cacao, flax and all sorts of things.  What do you add?  So far I like starting my day with a protein shake and it feels like a positive beginning to my day.
