Let’s talk about protein powder! Because obviously, I use it a lot! (swipe to see my stash!)

I like protein powder because it’s an easy way to hit my protein goals. And unlike 25 years ago when protein powder tasted terrible, today’s protein powder tastes like a milkshake!!

But, I do get the question what kind I recommend, so here’s my thoughts:

𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐮𝐦 𝐍𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚- I like Optimum Nutrition for the price (~$1/serving), I like I can get it at Costco, and I like it for baking (like these waffles today!) I also like it’s pure protein, and you don’t get very many carbs in this.

𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧 𝐒𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐄𝐚𝐭𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐥𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫 𝐯𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐭𝐲! For protein shakes and ice cream I prefer Clean Simple Eats.. I mean, how can you not with flavors like peaches and cream, snickerdoodle, and birthday cake!? The downside on this is the price (~$2/serving), and you get double the carbs with it.

Topped with sugar free syrup and whipped cream.
I ate this with 2/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt and 100 grams of banana with

𝐋𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐡: Italian Salad! and new low calorie dressing alert.. Bolthouse (of course) Italian salad dressing for 25 calories per two tablespoons!
