Calling all my fellow meat heads!
Who wants some protein?
Some yummy protein.
Some filling protein!
Ew. I sound like a cheesy ad. But, listen. This stuff is pretty delicious.
Even before I became a vegetarian, I paid close attention to my protein intake. Remember my post about prioritizing protein? I’m always finding ways to sneak protein sources into my diet, and now that I don’t eat meat, I have to be even more sneaky about it.
Since I’m always wanting a filling snack about every 3 hours, easy protein sources are a necessity in my daily life. I’m talking
something I can grab out of my drawer or fridge at work or at home. And since I’ve started spinning so much lately, I’m grabbing for protein even more. Must! Get! Full!
Seriously… I am almost never full. But protein really helps, and bars and shakes are my favorite way to supplement my protein intake.
So, when Pure Protein told me I had to try their product, I was more than game. High protein sources with nutrition facts as great as these is hard to turn away.
Pure Protein sent me Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and Chocolate Deluxe Bars to try, and while I’m a true chocoholic, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar totally rocked my world. If you can’t tell from the photo, that one has a crunchy inside, and we all know I’m a sucker for texture. To me, it kind of tastes like peanut butter cookie dough.
The Chocolate Deluxe is good, but the Chocolate Peanut Butter is a slam dunk.
And then there’s the Pure Protein Whey Protein Powder. The Vanilla Cream flavor they sent me was a great addition to my morning oatmeal, and I’m a little worried about how fast I’m going to go through this tub.
And check out the nutrition facts on this baby. Not too shabby.
And to be honest, while the whey protein powder stats excited me, those of the Pure Protein Shake impressed me even more.
Since when does a high protein shake only have half a gram of fat? I feel like I can never find a high protein/low fat combo.
Now, who wants in?
I’ve got a big package full of Pure Protein High Protein Bars, Whey Protein, and Shakes, and it’s got one lucky LOB reader’s name on it.
