So as i said in my last post i am trying to make better choices and get more protein in my diet.
first off let me start by saying trying to find the right protein is a freaking mind field!!! Seriously why is it so hard? I spent many nights googling different brands and reading reviews and i finally settled on My Protein.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Food is always better than a substitute, if you get a lot of protein from your diet don't add more, natural food is always better for you!
I wanted this to be a little protein idea post! These are my Instagram posts, check it out for more ideas.
Protein Pancakes -
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
a little vanilla essence
Protein Shake -
1 scoop of chocolate protein
200ml milk or almond milk
3 ice cubes
As i keep repeating i like to make better choices and i won't be giving up the sweet stuff , this is why i love Lenny & Larry's complete cookies because i get my sweet fix but they aren't that bad for you. They come in several different flavours. up to now i've only tried two, Birthday Cake and Double Chocolate.
