This morning I woke up very tired and tried to bow out of my bike ride with the excuse that I was too tired (I raced a 5K last night!), had a flat tire, and was running late.
My excuses did not work! And off I went to ride up the coast with my fellow bike mates.
We rode up the coast, took a short rest and then biked back.
Always a good ride. But I am tired now. That makes sense though since I did a double workout day yesterday and rode this morning.
I plan on doing some computer work, relaxing, and going to the dentist today.
But before I go, I wanted to touch on protein powders. I have spent a lot of money on protein powders thought out my years. I have tried many. As of late I have been focusing on plant-based sources and staying away from Whey and Casein because I have personally read some bad things about them. Again, it is wrapped up in the whole animal products/factory farming deal and yes I know that there are supposedly humanly processed (?) whey supplements out there but I would like to stay away from them anyway. Why bother if you have many plant-based options right?
I have tried Herbalife’s Allergen Free Vanilla.
This is not bad. I like to add it to my overnight oats and I have made fruity type shakes with it. Nothing too exciting about this stuff.
I have also tried this uber expensive plant based chocolate protein from Sun Warrior.
I have mostly used this in shakes. It is fine but it does not lend itself to creaminess. Not sure if I would buy it again because of how much it costs as well.
At first I was not thinking I would be too thrilled with this. I mean really, soy protein? That is so old news right? Well boy was I shocked! This stuff is really creamy and makes a mean protein shake.
I find that I add less extras to my shakes because it provides a substantail base. I have not tried it in my overnight oats yet but I have a feeling it would work just fine. And one last thing, I will buy this because the price rocks!
Do you use protein powders to suplement your diet? If so what kind?
