Protein Shake
So, I really enjoyed my afternoon Craving Crusher Shakes that I had for the first few weeks on NS (they really help me get through my afternoon labs that I teach).  The problem...they are a bit pricey so in trying to find a replacement I found one with the following stats:
Per Serving
150 calories
3g fat
80mg sodium
8g total carbs
5g fiber
0g sugar
24g protein

Would this work as a good replacement for the Craving Crusher Shake?

Those seem to compare pretty favorably with the NS Crave Crusher shakes. (except they are about 10 calories too short).

Are you sure you want to give up a PowerFuel and a SmartCarb everyday in the form of a shake? You will probably only get 1 SC a day and it's best to have that in the form of fruit.

You may want to check out the NS regular shakes. They only count as 1 PF. (I drink 1 every day).

What brand are the ones you found? Walmart sells a pre-mixed Nutrisystem shake which counts as 1 PF and 1 SC.

Or, you could go on the Discussion Forums and post a "Crave Crusher Shake Wanted" thread. I would bet there are some people who are not using theirs and would be happy to mail them to you for the price of postage plus a little more. Can't hurt to ask.

Just some thoughts...

Its not every day, just the days when I teach labs back to back for 8 hours straight with only a 10 min break in between if the lab finished on time (Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays). Other days I eat either a banana or unsweetened applesauce.
Back to the shakes the brand I found is Chocolite. My walmart does not carry the shakes :(

In the following order, I like "Big Train Fit Frappe," "Atkins Advantage Chocolate Shake," and "Core Power Protein Shake." The last one is hard to find here, however, but the first two I get at Sam's Club. Good luck - hope you find something you like. I'll have to look for "Chocolite" - I've never heard of it.
