Almost every morning when I take a strength class someone will ask if I use protein powder and what brand I recommend. Well to answer your first question, yes, yes I do, and truth be told it is a life saver for mornings when I’m in a rush but don’t have time to prepare anything, same goes for the afternoon when hunger strikes and there is no food around – I just reach for my trusty protein powder to fill the spot (which has NO added nasties to undo all the hard work and clean eating I do.)
