Protein shakes: yes or no?

Almost everyone can get enough protein from foods (healthy adults like me should get about 45 to 56 grams of protein a day, to find out exactly how many protein do you need, check out my protein calculator). However, with my busy schedule, regular trainings and lack of time to prepare my post-workout meals, I make my protein shakes instead. It’s mostly about convenience and the real yummy taste of different flavours.

Protein Drink

My super powerful smoothie: vanilla ice protein powder, strawberries, raspberries, almonds and chia seeds with a dash of cinnamon.

Do I need protein powder?

If I exercise regularly, I may need more calories and protein from any source, so I always make sure to take in some protein after my workouts. Besides, protein powder makes my fruit shakes much yummier and sweeter so I don’t crave sugar throughout the day. For me protein powers work well and if I don’t overuse it, everything is fine and I feel great.

Protein Powder

What is the best protein choice?

I personally choose whey protein that is best used as part of my overall health and fitness efforts, which include planning the correct training phases and training intensity. Body and Fit Whey Protein works well (my favourite vanilla ice flavour!).


Do you guys use protein powder for your shakes/baking?

If so, what’s your favourite?

  1. My hubby LOVES these things! I tend to make smoothies, leaving out the powder and throw some chia seeds in instead!

  2. When I worked out a LOT in college, I used to drink a daily protein shake for extra protein + calories, too. Now that I’m a little more, um, lazy, I don’t need the extra cals/protein as much! Plus, I was a vegetarian then, so it was harder for me to get adequate protein. I do still think they’re delicious, though!

  3. I’ve been thinking of trying protein powder on my workout days. That’s awesome that you found one that you love too, it sounds great 🙂

  4. Hmmm sorry Agness but it’s a no from me – I don’t work out enough, so I tend to focus on fresh, organic foods which power me through the day, but aren’t too strong on one particular component.

  5. My family members all the time say that I am killing my time here at web, however I know
    I am getting familiarity every day by reading thes nice content.

  6. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Kudos!
