Routine is made for machines and people who refuse to live their life thinking for themselves.
While daily routines are inevitable, your healthy eating habits should NOT follow suit. If you follow me on instagram, you know that I am ALWAYS switching it up.
As trite as it may sound, VARIETY is the SPICE of life. (and most often the only spice I use 😉 )
I am a habitual user of many protein powders (mainly plant based) and had backed off for a while recently.
While old fashioned oats, eggs and spinach are supreme sources of nutrition for breakfast/post workout, I of course tired very quickly.
A company called Myprotein reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in reviewing one of their supplements, I jumped at the chance.
Myprotein was kind enough to send me the Impact Diet Whey in Double Chocolate. I have been looking for a protein powder that has a lower than normal carb/calorie count, so this fit the bill! (200 cals/6 carbs for 2 scoops!)
The company is based in the U.K. but products are available for purchase online internationally. Myprotein has premium sourced ingredients in all of their products and always ensures that you are receiving the lowest prices possible.
The ingredients in my protein powder included: a protein blend of whey/milk protein concentrate, ground oats, cocoa powder, whole psyllium husks, flaxseed powder, natural and artificial flavoring, soy lecithin and sucralose
I chose to make a strawberry cacao smoothie as a hot yoga post workout meal. It did NOT disappoint!
♥ 6-8 frozen strawberries
♥ 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
♥ 1 scoop Myprotein double chocolate protein powder
♥ 1 tbsp. organic cacao powder
♥ cacao nibs for topping (optional)
As always, I used my favorite kitchen appliance ever…the vitamix!
You could also add some spinach (which I usually do) for a serving of greens too.
Overall, this protein powder rated as a definite YES. It’s NON-gritty, tasty, acts as a great meal replacement and is cost effective.
What’s been your favorite protein powder lately?
Peace, love and protein!
