Oooooo yeah – so after today’s workout, I decided to head over to Max Muscle and test out some new protein powders. Right now I am using Met Rx Vanilla flavor and it’s really good. You can get that at Trader Joe’s for about $23.99. I am trying to finish up my disgusting Cytosport one from Costco. Bleh…it tastes like horrendous-ness, I can’t even describe.
So at Max Muscle I ended up trying trying this awesome Cinnamon Roll flavor that seriously BLEW MY MIND. It was so good – it was just like a milkshake! Kind of expensive though. $25 for just 1 lb or 13 servings. I did get it though because I enjoyed it so much.
Below is a powder I found on Amazon that’s twice the size for the same price and after reading reviews, it seems to be pretty good – the Cinnamon Roll flavor from Gaspari.
I enjoyed the Cinnamon Roll flavor so much that I had it like 3x yesterday. Haha, oh well. I want to experiment with muffins and pancakes. I cannot wait. I am so in love. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! This makes muscle building fun and delicious.
I am also ordering that Peanut Butter cookie flavor from Protizyme just to test out. (See above) I don’t really like the “cookie” part of it, I am afraid it will be too sweet, but there wasn’t really anything else. Well, there was one but the review said it was chalky. I do not do chalky. Uh uh.
I have these items sitting in my Amazon shopping cart now…including a huggggeeee bag of PB2!!! I am such a peanut butter freak it’s not even funny. I can’t wait to add peanut butter flavor to my shakes, muffins, and pancakes at only 45 cals for 2 TBS instead of the usual 200 cals. PB2 is basically peanuts that have had the oils and fats pressed out of them. It’s just the roasted powder left. You mix with water and voila, peanut butter. Great for when you want the flavor but not the calories. And yes guys, I know nut fats are good for you, but sometimes you already have enough healthy fats in your diet from eating things like avocados and salmon and you want to still enjoy the taste of peanut butter without overdoing it. That’s when PB2 comes to the rescue.
You can see my whole list of protein powder and pantry recommendations here or just click on the carousel thingy above.
Yay for supplement shopping! I can’t wait to get these and tell you how they taste. Super excited.
Have a fab weekend, work hard, and eat well. Remember, HARD WORK PAYS OFF. It may not be fun sometimes, it may be painful in fact. But every bit of effort you throw in there counts. Trust me guys, you’ve got this.
