Do I use Protein Supplements?
Jan. 15, 2020Leave a comment
I talked about supplements yesterday. What about protein supplements? Am I taking protein supplements???
I have two tubs of protein powder sitting around. The thing is, I haven’t touched them since. I try to. I don’t know. I prefer to eat actual food over taking protein supplements. I do like protein snacks, such as cookies and especially bars. Those fit in my meal plans quite nicely. But, protein powders are last on my list. I used to love them, by the way. 😋 Even though I haven’t been using protein powders for months. I’m very happy that none of my protein powders have expired yet. 👍
As you can see from the photo, I have Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder (Vanilla) and Orgain Organic Protein Powder (Creamy Chocolate Fudge). With Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder, the reason why I haven’t been using it is because it tastes quite awful. It just doesn’t taste good to me at all. It doesn’t matter what I put in my protein shake. I don’t like the taste of it. What I like about it is the amino acid profile. On the other hand, Orgain isn’t too bad, which I’m leaning towards to using more often.
I’m trying to get back in shape again, so I think it’s about time to utilize these protein powders. I’m not lacking protein or anything like that as a vegetarian. I get enough protein in a day. But, protein does seem to keep me fuller much longer throughout the day. I have these protein powders. Why not use them instead of wasting them??!! So let’s begin this transformation! Wish me luck! 😊

Review: good! Snacks Vegan Birthday Cake Protein Bar
Jan. 10, 2020Leave a comment
I ventured out and tried a different brand of vegan protein bars. It’s by good! Snacks. I’ve seen this brand around, but I never thought about trying them until now. Here’s my review on this new protein bar!
I was super excited about the Birthday Cake flavor. I’ve been searching for vegan protein bars in this flavor for so long. Birthday Cake is one of my favorite flavors. 🎂 I’m so addicted to it. It’s that good. So these protein bars are gluten-free, vegan, and contains no soy. Good, good. I prefer vegan protein bars over dairy-based protein bars for a good reason. I can digest them a lot better. As for the taste of these protein bars, they taste really good. It’s like I’m eating a candy bar that’s somewhat healthy. It’s very sweet. The texture of the bar is soft. I actually like how soft the protein bars are. They’re much easier to eat. The only issue I had with this protein bar is that it contains a whopping 10 grams of sugar. 9 grams coming from added sugars. No wonder why they taste sooo good! At this very moment, I will not purchase it again for that reason. I prefer to keep my protein bars lower in sugar. I do think that these protein bars lean towards being ‘unhealthy’.
