    Yeah, hubby LOATHES nog (too thick, he says). I spent the first 8 years of our marriage trying to get him to LIKE it. Not happening. Fortunately, he's still a sport about most of my other concoctions.

    Just posted recipe in recipe forum under Super Nog! I've had this concoction several days in the past week & have had no adverse effects from raw egg. It is sweet, thanks to the vanilla, but not overpowering.

    One scoop of your basic protein powder has about 25-30 grams of protein and about two hundred calories give or take. HWC is very calorie dense probably more towards the rare treat-desert end of the spectrum rather than a snack or post workout drink.

    Raw eggs - pastured farm eggs - most likely ok. Conventional chickenssqueezedintoabox - higher risk.

    Dang! Groceries are cheap where you live? I pay $3.50 for a pint of HWC and $5/doz for eggs. Granted it's organic, but still I don't see non organics as cheap as you're getting. That nog would be $4.25 for me. I guess that's not too bad for 1200 calories worth of food, though.

    You're only getting half of the calories from the eggs that they nominally contain. When you cook eggs, you can get 90% of the nominal calories. Take it into your calculations if it's important. Also, raw egg whites can be difficult to digest. I only use the raw yolks in my nog, and add the leftover whites to my omelettes.

    I thought cooking took out the nutrients?

    Daisy, we can't afford a lot of organic. We just get what we can at the grocery store. We can get 5 dozen eggs for $3-$5 depending on who's having a sale, and a half pint of HWC usually runs 50c - $1 (it's for Meadow Gold).

    Post workout is usually my first meal of the day (which is why I mentioned super nog as post workout fuel)

    My goal is to keep tweaking it to make it even thicker, but keeping the ingredients the same. I think whipping the egg whites and the HWC separately helped yesterday. Pre-diet anything (CW/PB), I was an egg nog hound, but the stuff at the store is so bad for you, IMO. Homemade nog can be so much better, cheaper, and healthier!

    Patrick, I kind of fell off the PB horse for a few weeks, so I'm trying to teach my body to enjoy fats instead of carbs again. I'm a monster when I get home from gym, just absolutely ornery until I eat something. I thought maybe something that was high protein and high fat would be a good choice?
    ive done it so many different ways after lifting...just protein shakes...protein and fruit....protein alone from a real food sources..and im so tired of trying to complicate it..that i just come home and fix me a normal size meal and be done with it...just my 2 cents
