Disclaimer: I received a protein powder kit from Bob’s Red Mill & Sweat Pink in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are honest and true to what I believe.
Building more muscle and getting stronger has been a goal of mine this year. I love running, but I can’t just run. That always leads me to injuries. So, I’ve been incorporating weight training 3-4 days a week to include with my running (that honestly has been lacking lately).
I eat a plant based diet, with limited dairy and eggs. I also can’t really eat Whey protein, it’s always made me feel sick. I’ve tried various plant based protein powders recently and have found a few different brands I love to alternate between. When it comes to protein, it’s a good idea to get it from various sources, so mixing up your foods or the protein powders and supplements you take is a great way to keep variety in your life.
I’ve always liked Bob’s Red Mill’s products and was excited when I heard they were coming out with a line of protein powders that are all natural and plant based.
Bob’s Red Mill Protein Powder – The Flavors
Chocolate. I love all things chocolate. So this was naturally the first on I tried. It’s delicious mixed with coconut milk or in my Chocolate Protein Pancakes (recipe below).
Chai. I’m a Chai addict, not so much a coffee person. So this one was bomb! Great mixed in non-dairy milk or blended with milk and ice.
Vanilla. A great staple flavor that is great plain or mixed in smoothies of other recipes.
Unflavored & Unsweetened. Perfect for baking or when you are making smoothies where you don’t want to compromise the flavor.
