Are you getting your Protein?

unnamed-8 copyIf you spend any time in the social media fitness world than it’s a virtual certainty that you have heard about importance in protein. Last week I shared my whey protein pudding recipe and after it went live I received quite a few emails about Protein Powder, I have a larger post planned for a little later but I wanted to quickly cover some of the thoughts, faves, and when I drinking protein shakes!

Heres the low down, everyone needs a good protein powder/shake daily, especially if you are physically active {running, cycling, weights, piyo whatever} you will definitely need protein daily to repair your muscles. Recently, I have really been digging the  Premier Protein Vanilla Whey Protein Powder because it really has an old-fashioned milkshake taste to it which I really like! As you can see I’m pretty stoked about this morning shake!

When do I drink my shake? Ultimately the answer is “when ever you want” some days I wake up REALLY sluggish and drink a shake first thing to jump-start my metabolism but you can always drink a protein shake pre-workout to jumpstart your energy {just like I do in the mornings} this extra boost in your energy will help you get a killer workout! On the other hand drinking a protein shake post-workout will help your body recover after any intense workout! When every my hubby and I do extremely intense workouts we both do a Pre and a Post workout protein shake.

Not down with protein powder everyday? There are lots of yummy foods super high in protein:
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Pork
  • Fish
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Cheese
  • Peanut Butter and other Nut Butters
  • Tofu
  • Soybeans
  • Yogurt

Eating this foods can act similarly to drinking a protein shake in the morning and before and after a workout! For example before your morning workout start with some yogurt, cheese or eggs! You will have a boost in energy that will help you tackle your workout and the rest of the day!
