Protein Powder… Do You Need It?

Processed with VSCO with q3 preset
My current favorite protein smoothie recipe: 2 scoops of Johns Killer Protein Oats/Whey blend, 1 whole banana, 1/2 cup of cashew milk, 6 ice cubes.  Blend and enjoy! 🙂

 

Can you get by without it?  Sure you could– but it does make baking more conducive to your macronutrient goals (future blog posts coming as I experiment with different recipes!), gives you the opportunity to make smoothies that are high in protein (who doesn’t love smoothies?), and above all- IT’S FAST AND CONVENIENT.  Need to get protein in after training while you run errands for the next few hours?  No problem.  Need a high protein breakfast you can throw together in your blender and be out the door in 2 minutes (of course as you double fist with a cup of coffee)– YUP! 🙂

I get approximately 20% of my daily protein intake via one of John’s Killer Protein 100% pure/organic protein powders.  Thankfully there aren’t any fillers or additives that leave me gassy or bloated (this was something I thought I just had to ‘accept’ with protein powders before), and offer nothing to my athletic performance.  Just pure, organic whey!  I’m so thankful to represent this company.  It feels good to lay my head down at night knowing I promote a product that has your body’s best interest at heart.  The high quality amino acids in whey protein are what your muscles need to repair and rebuild- allowing your muscle cells to increase in size.  Their powders are versatile too– you can make greens smoothies or smoothies that cater to your sweet tooth!  🙂

If you browse around and see something you like, use ELYSE10 at checkout to get 10% off/free shipping!   My current favorites are Organic Cacao/Whey blend & the Organic Oats/Whey blend.

If you try them, please write me and let me know if you experienced the same stomach comfort!  It was such a relief to me when I had my first protein smoothie and had NO GAS AND BLOATING!  #hallelujah ! 🙂

xoxo ❤
