    Are there samples of Primal Fuel?

    Primal Fuel
    I don't want to spend a lot of money on something I've never tasted. Are there samples available? I don't like stevia, but haven't really had it in stuff before, just tasted it on it's own.

    If you want a sample of primal fuel, go to your nearest store and open a can of dog food. Sprinkle stevia on top. This replicates the taste pretty accurately.

    Hmm.... Got any recommendations for any tasty protein powders?

    I want to use it in addition to regular meals to get more calories in. (I'm currently breastfeeding and having trouble keeping weight on, I'm 5'8" and in the past few months my weight has been as low as 103, I'm currently at about 107. I've always been underweight, but now I'm about 10 pounds BELOW my pre-pregnancy weight.)

    I've been drinking Carnation Instant Breakfast made with whole milk between meals, and I know that's just "junk food" with a bunch of sugar and crud in it. I want to find a shake mix that's healthy and also quick & easy.

    Edit to add: I'm already eating more carbs: sweet potatoes, potatoes, fruit, rice, quinoa.

    Isopure Zero tastes good, but it's not primal. Sun Warrior Warrior Blend is more primal friendly, but has the mouth feel of wet sand. IZ is a guilty pleasure for me, especially when mixed with yoplait chocolate strawberry smoothie blend (I did say guilty pleasure, right?)
    Haven't had it in a couple of months though. If you can set aside some time in the evening, you can cook several meals in advance. I have a little baby myself who I'm nursing, so I can relate to the "I need to eat, but I can't put the baby down to make anything". Best time to do it is at night when LO goes to bed. Take an hour to make a couple dishes that you can grab in the morning and toss in the microwave.

    I hear the dog food does a really good job at disguising the awful aftertaste of stevia.

    I picked up some sample packets of Jay Robb's whey protein powder at Whole Foods market and every flavor I tried tasted good.
    My fave was Dreamsicle whey protein mixed with 1/2 cup OJ and 1/2 cup of either natural milk or vanilla flavored coconut milk.
    Me personally I prefer Stevia mixed into things over Splenda. Splenda makes me extremely nauseous and leaves a weird metallic taste in my mouth.

    Jay Robb's is pretty darn clean, IMO - we used to buy his vanilla flavor (but honestly, it was a bit sweet for me).

    oh, and if Mark (or anyone at MDA) is reading this thread, I'd also be interested in samples of the primal fuel... I'd be more inclined to drop ($whatever it is) on a large container of primal fuel if I could get a little sample packet to try first - even if I had to pay 50 or 99 for the packet... just sayin'.
