Hi all 🙂
So do you know there are less than 60 days left until Summer begins?
I know I know, that fun fact caught me off guard as well.
But I have been working out about 4 times a week as well as doing cardio about 3-4 times a week so I’m slowly getting back on track.
The only thing that has been slowing me down lately is FOOD.
Yes glorious food. Summer time food is my favorite.
I love ribs.
I love bacon cheeseburgers.
I LOVE ALL THE BAD STUFF PERIOD.
However, I’m going to Aruba in September and I’ve been promising my boyfriend for a while that I will have a six pack.
SO I HAVE TO GET IT TOGETHER.
With all that being said I found a great protein that is going to help keep me on track.
I am a FitApproach Ambassador and was selected to receive this
Amazing Grass – Protein Superfood in Chocolate Peanut Butter
My package arrived late last week and I was pleasantly surprised.
Not only did I receive the protein but they also sent a towel for a yoga mat… I haven’t got started on my Yoga yet but when I do baby I have a lovely towel for my Yoga mat.
I also received an environmental-friendly glass mason jar + a straw from Simply Straws.
Lastly, I received a Hands on Hemp produce bag which I can use during my grocery shopping days.
They also included a few pamphlets that detail the important info about the protein as well as a few smoothie recipes.
Fast forward to this past Saturday after a quick cardio session, I decided to give this protein a shot.
So here is the rundown on the protein:
PROTEIN | 20 GRAMS OF COMPLETE PLANT-BASED PROTEIN
ALKALIZING | 7 ALKALIZING GREENS
NUTRITION | 2 FULL SERVINGS OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES
It also comes in 2 other flavors and they sell a variety of other products including products for kids. How cool is that?
With baseball getting in to full gear, I’m always looking for products that can help keep my little man big and strong and I definitely will have to give this product a shot.
Chocolate PB & J Smoothie
1 cup chocolate hemp milk
2 Tbsp cocounut milk
handful of strawberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 Tbsp Justin’s almond butter
handful of ice cubes
garnish with cacao nibs
So this is the recipe I chose to recreate however I swapped out the chocolate hemp milk for Silk’s Dark Chocolate Almond Milk and also swapped the Coconut Milk for Silk’s Coconut Almond milk.
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I even received approval from my 8 year old that this will be a morning staple for the both of us. The chocolate peanut butter protein isn’t chalky like some protein powders but it’s so flavorful and definitely satisfies your sweet tooth.
I’ve made a big batch of this yesterday so I can have smaller batches over the week and I’m eager to locate more recipes to continue to use the protein powder with.
Now on to the good part. Amazing Grass is offering one full sized Protein Superfood product to one reader and you get to select the flavor.
