Protein On The Go! (GIVEAWAY)

July 1, 2011 · 104 comments


When the people at Gotein dreamed up their ingenious product, they had me in mind fa sho.

I’m constantly on the move. I’m at my best when I’m busy. I don’t like downtime.

Does that make me multi-talented? Accomplished? Or just A.D.D?

Probably the latter.

But since high school, I’ve participated in more than one sport, lead several activities, and committed to multiple social obligations all at once.

I like being an on-the-go lady!

So, when Anna at Gotein contacted me to review their product, I was psyched. Big tubs of protein don’t really lend to being lugged around… plus, not many formulas taste great when just added to water.

somebody else wants some Gotein…

Water, you say? Just add water?

Yup. Gotein comes in packets. You simply add water. And they taste awesome.

Fun facts about Gotein:

  1. Take Gotein as a snack between meals to hold you over (I did this!)
  2. Gotein taken with a piece of fruit or a yogurt can be used as a meal replacement.
  3. Drink Gotein 60-90 minutes before a meal to suppress your appetite (I did this too!)
  4. Mix a Gotein as you’re walking away from your workout to repair micro tears in your muscle tissue due to your workout (Bam. Done.)
  5. Gotein is low in carbohydrates and high in protein.

Per Anna’s tips, I grabbed a cold bottle of water (16.9 oz), drank about half of it (I like my protein thicker), swirled and shook it up, and sipped.

It’s that easy. Yummy protein on the go.

Gotein comes in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. My favorite was the chocolate; it honestly tasted like cool hot cocoa. In the best way possible.

I tried the strawberry yesterday before lunch. I was playing with consistencies and tried adding half a bottle of water instead of a third (so it became thinner), and I didn’t like that near as much. I’ve also never liked strawberry ice cream, so I would have guessed this would be my least favorite flavor.

Vanilla protein on the go. In a Phillies cup!

The vanilla saved me on my way to Lisa Marie’s last bridal fitting at lunchtime. It tied my hunger over perfectly until I could eat a meal. I loved this flavor, too!

So, I <3 Gotein. I like it thick, and I love the chocolate and vanilla varieties the most.


And guess what? Gotein sent me enough for you, too!


This little baby can be addressed to you.

And three others will receive a $4 off coupon for Gotein!

It would be awesome to have Gotein — especially when I’m chasing my middle school athletes around the volleyball court! Sounds like a great way to tide me over during marathon coaching sessions!

Hooray for Grotein and giveaways!!!
I think Grotein would be pretty good for me after work on my way to the gym before my workout!

I hate strawberry flavouring. Blech. But I LOVE strawberries!

I think working into my work out routine somehow as well. That or – it seems so easy to just have on hand when I get hungry (all. of. the. time) and can’t eat an actual meal!!

I think strawberry would be my least favorite too. I think strawberry flavor tastes too sugary, not a big fan, but I love vanilla, so I am sure that one would be my favorite!

I think I would utilize Gotein at work. I work evening shifts, and when I get off work at 8 pm, I tend to come home and CHOW down. It’s like I haven’t eaten anything all day! I am trying to avoid eating a few hours before bed time, but it’s difficult when I am so hungry when I get home. I think having Gotein at work would fill me up a little so I could survive on just a snack upon getting home, rather than eating the whole fridge! 🙂

I just sent my sister the link to your Blyss Designs facebook page. She is getting married in Sept and I think glasses for the bridal party would be perfect! Hopefully she thinks so too 🙂

I’m a social worker (in VB too!) and am always out in the field, aka on the road, which makes it difficult to pack nutritious lunches and snacks due to the high temperatures (most protein/fiber bars get melty which make them unedible in work attire), so I would stash Gotein in my car and add it to my water bottle, which I carry around all day. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Reply

56 Colleen July 2, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Gotein would be great for a post-workout snack and I would definitely keep a few packets in my purse for emergency snacks!

Reply

57 Amanda July 2, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Gotien would be great after my runs in this killer summer heat. Im training for my first half marathon, and living in the south makes for a crazy hott combination. The packets would be perfect for refueling on my way to work after my runs because I am always starving afterword! This giveaway rocks!

I would drink gotein at work when I am working my 7pm to 7am shift at the hospital! As an ICU nurse we stay reallly busy, and sometimes don’t get to eat dinner/lunch!! Something to drink would be great to give me some calories/protein and fill my tum-tum! I followed you on twitter and liked on facebook as well 🙂

I would use Gotein in post yoga on my way to work. I am always so hungry after yoga. It would be great to have in my bag to use while I am still in the locker room…starving.
