Too delicious to be Whey

At work I like talking to my group of friends about every thing.

I have some friends in Maintenance that work out and know a lot about fitness. So I always go to them about work out advice or even eating plans. Yesterday I was complaining to one of my friends about how much I hate drinking protein shakes. I told him that I hate the chalkiness of the powder and that it never taste like what it says.

He mentioned that I should add some things to my shake instead of the typical milk and ice. So he went on to tell me about one of his daughters favorite protein shakes he makes her.

All you need to add in one banana and some peanut butter. This morning I decided to give it a try and I was pretty happy with the results.

I first put in a little bit of warm water at the bottom to warm up the peanut butter (since its thick). Then I threw in the milk, whey protein mix, and added five ice cubes (you don’t want it watery).

Close it with the lid and blend. Bam! You got yourself a delicious protein shake.

My kind of Shake

Hello Everyone!

So as you know I have been trying out some shakes to help me gain muscle. Let me tell you that some of these protein shakes were so difficult to drink. I found myself measuring out  my drinking points. I knew that in order for this to work for me I had to chug it. So I would get a white board marker and mark where I had to chug to.

Day one I had the Pure Green Protein and that was the worst one out of the three. I found it to be so hard to drink that I just had to power through and finish it. So I knew that this one wasn’t for me.

Day two I tried the Vega One shake. This one was a little better than the Pure Green. But I was disappointed but instead of tasting like coconut almond it tasted more like Flintstones grounded down vitamins. Which isn’t delicious at all, I think it probably was the most grainest out of the three.

Day three was the best by far. It was the light at the end of the tunnel. This shake didn’t upset my stomach, blended easy, and didn’t separate too much from the ice. It tasted more like chocolate milk than crushed up vitamins. I think what amazed me is that it wasn’t a pain to drink. After forcing shake after shake it was nice to feel like I didn’t need to. I will probably buy this one depending if I still want to continue searching for more flavors.

What I did was add 1/3 cup of 2% lactose milk with a cup full of ice. I would put all of that into a blender and take it to my desk. My boss was nice enough to bring in his bullet to work for me. So every morning I would blend up my drink and just chug it at my desk. I did this to all three shakes just to keep it consistent.

I decided to ease into working out because I knew my poor body would go into shock if I got too crazy. So what I’m doing is the 30 day squat challenge and swimming twice a week for an hour and a half.

Well I hope you enjoyed my review and hopefully helped you on your shake quest too.
