When you live a fitness lifestyle, things can get routine. I mean after you’ve made the lifestyle changes and working out is no longer such a challenge, things can get fairly repetitious. When you fall into the same schedule and the same foods, day after day, it’s easy to get bored. It’s also easy for your body to get adjusted and plateau. Shaking things up now and then with a different workout or a different protein powder snacks can give you the perfect diversion and respark some interest in your fitness goals.
Most people put their protein powder in a blender, add some ice, and keep it moving. Not only does this bore your taste buds—it just simply boring! Protein powder snacks are versatile and you simply aren’t doing them justice if you aren’t having a little fun in the kitchen with them.
The best way to shake up protein powder snacks is with some add ins. A protein breakfast smoothie is a great way to start the day when you add some fresh or frozen berries. Try strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Try one variety at a time, or throw several in at once for a wild berry smoothie. Add a half-container of yogurt to get a more creamy consistency and to boost the protein content even more. This is a breakfast that will start your day off right and keep you satisfied for several hours.
Need to boost the protein content after a workout—try this. Using Beachbody Whey Protein Chocolate in the blender, add ice, a sliced banana, and some peanut butter. Chocolate, peanut butter and bananas? Fuhgeddaboutit! These flavors combine to create one of the most enticing combinations of sweet and slightly salty. This is the ultimate in protein powder snacks.
Still not inspired? Get a little crazy. Don’t be scared to try new things with your protein powder snacks and shakes. Of course adding foods that are ridiculously high in fat and calories isn’t recommended. Turning it into a Blizzard or similar candy-filled concoction definitely won’t help you achieve your fitness goals any faster. But, trying various healthy additions can keep your diet routine far from routine and can keep protein powder snacks a real pleasure to enjoy.
