I made my weekly trip to the health food store the other day and nearly broke the bank! Well, not really, but I was floored at how much things are costing me these days. Sometimes I feel pretty guilty because I am a HUGE expense! The stuff in this picture cost $52.00!! WOW! The biggest expense was the protein powder though($19.99 for 15 servings!). I use protein powder pretty much every day so this was not something I was willing to pass on. I am having trouble with SO many foods right now that I realize I have to pay good money for things like this. I have never used this powder before but was so interested in it because it has some things that other protein powders don't have. First of all, it has twice the amount of protein as my other powder. It's got 22g per serving which is good. Not ridiculously high, but not too low either. The thing that sold me on it the most though was the fact that it has 18 different amino acids including L-Glutamine which is very important for healthy intestines. I don't really know too much about amino acids other than the fact that we need them to be healthy. This powder also has enzymes to help with absorption of nutrients. The powder is all natural, gluten free, dairy and soy free. So, how about taste? I think I like it:) It doesn't have a very strong flavor. It says unflavored on it, but it does have some flavor to it. It doesn't come in chocolate or vanilla that I know of. The only thing I did notice is that it leaves an odd aftertaste that I'm not crazy about. I just brush my teeth afterwards:) The smoothie I had with it contained the following:
1/2 homemade coconut milk yogurt 1/2 filtered water 4 ice cubes 1 tsp. raw local honey BIG handful of spinach 1 tsp. coconut oil 1 scoop of PlantFusion
VERY nutritious start to my day after doing some yoga and getting my toes attacked by my cat:)
Just a reminder that today is the last day to enter the almond flour give away:) I will probably post the winner on Monday because I am going to be out of town tomorrow and Sunday will be filled with Father's Day stuff.
One more thought---Please, Please, Please don't stop leaving comments once the give away is over. I SO LOVE to hear from readers! I absolutely loved and appreciated all of the comments and support for Marissa on my last post:) Her mom also told me that they did read them all and Marissa was very blessed and cried some good tears of joy! Thank you to ALL who commented!
Have a blessed day! "I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure..." Psalm 16:8-9
