3. Made a protein shake (with even more Chocolate milk... Yummers!)
I'm trying to work more protein into my diet, especially as I get into training for my first marathon and increasing my mileage. Protein is super-important for muscle repair and recovery.
That was the first protein shake I've ever made and I'm officially addicted. I bought these little trial size packets at Sobeys to test them out - I've been wanting to buy protein powder for a while now and I HATE that most companies don't make trial sized packets of protein powder. I'm too broke to spend $60 on a giant tub of the stuff only to find out that it tastes like chaulk and I'd rather eat the carton. I was pumped when I found these for $1.99 each.
I used the chocolate one in my protein shake and it was (to my great surprise) delicious. No chaulky grainy taste, just goodness.
Here's what I put in my smoothie (which I bedrudgingly shared with Ryan... Sharing is caring.)
Drink your protein shake within 30-60 minutes of finishing a hard workout for optimal benefit!
Another protein-filled snack I'm loving lately = soy nuts
5 REASONS YOU SHOULD EAT SOY NUTS:
I've discovered that soy nuts taste fantastic tossed in popcorn seasoning. It makes a super easy snack to take to work or on the go.
