Being a Fitfluential Ambassador gives me the chance to review some awesome health and fitness products out there. I’m looking forward to more of these in the future, so it can help you sort out all the stuff out there!
I’ve been on a “more protein” kick for a year now, and have been finding ways to get it in my diet more. One way that I’ve done that is through protein supplements. Whey protein (more info about it here) is a great option for many people. (If dairy bothers you, then you shouldn’t use it. Try a pea/rice blend instead)
I’ve tried quite a few protein brands and I’ve found that Designer Whey always lands on top of my list! So imagine my excitement when I received this mother load at my front door!
Let’s start off with their protein powder. As I mentioned above, I’ve tried quite a few protein powders. Designer Whey ranks at the top of them for taste, ingredients, price point and availability! The french vanilla is our go-to flavor!
Of course, I use the protein powder for a number of things: smoothies, protein cereal, protein oatmeal (“proatmeal”), and of course, my protein waffles!
I had fun with the white chocolate protein powder. I whipped up this smoothie one day for a post workout and it was great!
1 scoop of Designer Whey’s WHITE CHOCOLATE protein powder
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup fresh blueberries (frozen should work, too!)
Ice, to taste
Add all of it together in a blender, blend, and enjoy!
When protein shakes aren’t available, and I don’t have my usual snacks with me, it’s great to have a protein bar handy. I hadn’t tried their protein bars before this shipment, so was so excited to get them! They are a little higher in the sugar category than I would prefer, but a better option than grabbing a candy bar (and just as tasty as one!) I LOVED the chocolate caramel crunch. They also have Triple Chocolate Crunch, and Peanut Butter Crunch.
I also received 2 protein shakes to go! These would be perfect to put in your gym bag for a quick after workout snack! I noticed that they have sucralose in them, so I didn’t try them. (I don’t do well with sucralose!)
And the final thing in my box, were these “Protein 2 Go” drink mixes! I love this idea because these are perfect to keep in your car or purse for when you forget your snacks or shake and need something!
I recommend Designer Whey 100%! They are worth a try if you haven’t found a protein brand that you love!
