I’ve had some pretty hardcore protein powder lovin’ going on lately. I go through phases with protein powders. Sometimes I use them very regularly, and other times hardly at all. Well, recently I’ve bene on a protein powder kick. Itz possibly due to my frequent weight lifting sessions? That’s the only thing I can think of since I wasn’t using protein powder very much during my run streak.
Or it could be mere coincidence. Either way, protein is good for you. Protein helps repair your muscles after a workout, builds lean muscle (what you want!), and keeps you full and satisfied. There are a million ways to use protein powder: pudding, dips, smoothies, and more! I.love.protein. You.should.too.
Those awkward moments in the gym when you try to discreetly take pictures of yourself in the mirror at 5:30 in the morning…
So the protein powders that I have been lovin’ on lately:
I literally bought all three within a week of each other. I told you: I go on kicks with this stuff! I got the PlantFusion Chocolate Raspberry from Amazon after learning about it from Janetha; it just sounded so good I had to get some for myself! The verdict? Honestly, I like it better mixed in a smoothie rather than plain with milk or water. Itz not bad by any means, but the flavor isn’t exactly what I was expecting. I’d be curious to try some of their other flavors.
I reviewed Sunwarrior back in April and loved it. Finally, finally I got around to buying some more and I couldn’t be happier about it. Muscle Milk in Cake Batter flavor – oh baby, you know how I feel about this one! Itz best when turned into protein fudge:
Itz a birthday cake in your mouth. With or without the sprinkles and chocolate chips, itz AMAZING! I ordered the Sunwarrior and Muscle Milk from iHerb.com. If itz your first order from iHerb you can use VAJ523 as a coupon code to receive $5 off an order of $20 or $10 off an order of $40 plus free shipping.
How about a ridiculously sweaty photo of me after a bikram yoga session? Which, by the way, I went to twice last weekend, thankyouverymuch!
What’s your favorite protein powder?
