Juice of 1 whole lemon (about 3 tablespoons)

Powdered sugar, if desired
Heat oven to 350º. Press dry crust from lemon bar mix in bottom of square
pan (8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches). Bake 10 minutes.
Add enough water to lemon juice to equal 1/2 cup. Place filling from lemon bar
mix and protein powder in large bowl. Stir in egg product and lemon juice mixture
with wire whisk until smooth. Pour filling over hot crust.

by 4 rows.
Anne R. Shares her Recipe "The best diet for me includes small meals and enough protein to help me heal and feel good during treatments. I use protein powder to boost the protein in foods that I can eat, as in these lemon bars. For a zestier lemon flavor, I add grated lemon peel to the filling."
Low fiber; low residue
A Note from Dr. Ghosh
These bars are a great snack or mini-meal when you are on the go! A daily dose of
light exercise for 30 minutes can help combat your fatigue and lift your spirits.
