#FoodieFriday: Favorite Supplements

Happy Friday All!

Rather than sharing a recipe today, I wanted to talk about some of my supplements I use daily! While these are not essential for anyone’s diet, I do love throwing protein in shakes, flavoring my water with BCAAs, and talking a multi-vitamin to make sure I am getting my micros. In any case, here are the brands I use.

  1. Multi-Vitamin

    1. For my multi, I just use GNC’s Women’s Ultra Mega multivitamin. I did take their Women’s Ultra Mega Active and Women’s Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism at one point in time. However, the plain mega is my favorite. It doesn’t burn my stomach when I take the vitamins, and it doesn’t keep me up all night either.
  2. Protein Powder

    1. I switch back and forth between two protein brands: PEScience and Ghost. I absolutely love PEScience’s casein and whey blend. The texture is perfect. I often times just drink the protein mixed with water–no blender or extra ingredients! They also nailed their peanut butter chocolate and peanut butter cookie flavors.
    2. On the other hand, I do occasional purchase Ghost protein as well. I really like their texture of protein as well, and they again nailed there peanut butter cereal milk flavor. It literally tastes like milk from a bowl of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I also purchased their coffee flavor, and enjoyed it in the mornings!
  3. BCAAs

    1. I recently started buying BCAAs because I never drink enough water! By adding this into my jug before I leave for school in the morning, I actually find myself looking for a water fountain for a refill by noon! I tried Ghost’s blue raspberry flavor and Xtend’s blueberry lemonade. I do like Xtend’s flavor slightly better than Ghost’s because Ghost’s blue raspberry has a bitter of a sour taste. If you like sour though, I would recommend Ghost!
  4. Pre-Workout

    1. Finally, the last product I want to talk about is PEScience’s Alphamine. I really liked drinking this product. It has a litter more caffeine than a cup of coffee, which I find is the perfect amount of caffeine for me! It doesn’t make you feel jittery or anything during a workout, but it does wake you up for your early lifts.

#FoodieFriday: Easiest Protein Shake Ever

Happy Friday All!

I am currently using PEScience protein to supplement my diet and training. I typically switch back and forth between PEScience and Ghost protein. I love their peanut butter and chocolate flavors!

Rather than just drink straight protein and water (though, I do this sometimes, too!), I have been putting my NutriBullet to use to throw in had some extra texture and a serving a veggies. This shake is also very simple and requires minima ingredients!

What I Use:

6-10 Ice Cubes

2 Handfuls of Spinach

1 Scoop Protein

Water

Add your ice cubes to the bottom of your container, so you can use this as a line for the amount of water you are going to use. Then, pack in your spinach and top off with a scoop of your favorite protein.

Blend for 30 to 60 seconds, and add to a fun glass (only if you want to!).

It’s super simple, cures my sweet tooth, and tastes delicious!
