A couple months ago I rushed, famished from my workout, into my local Super Supplements and asked my favorite sales girl if she could recommend a ready-to-consume protein source without a ton of sugar. We looked at a few protein bars, all of which contained over 20g of sugar. FYI, the daily limit for a woman is only 30!
We ventured to the cooler case to explore the drinkable options, two of which I already knew were barely palatable, and contained so much other fake stuff that it just wasn’t worth it. I would rather risk wasting my 30 minute window than sucking down chemicals and soy (to each their own).
Then, picking up a carton of something I’ve never seen and had decidedly skipped over, she said, “Well, there’s this. I think this looks pretty good.”, handing me a single serve carton of Orgain Nutrional Shake. I looked at the back, first checking out the sugar content. “Acceptable.” I nodded. “Oh, wow! There’s a ton of great stuff in here. Lots of protein. And, OH, no soy, no artificial anything… infact, it’s organic! What?!”
Tired of chocolate flavored fitness “foods” I chose the strawberry flavor. I made my purchase, sat down in my car, shook it up and twisted off the clicky cap. Side note here, I’m a very picky eater and honestly don’t like much of anything ‘natural’. So, this whole organic thing kind of scared me. I sniffed it, I sipped it, then I chugged it! Holy cow, this stuff is DELICIOUS! I was sad that I finished it in about 4.6 seconds. I apparently didn’t shake it well enough though; I ended up sucking down a tasty little strawberry goo ball (not that I’m complaining).
Since then, I’ve started stocking up and having these ready to go in my fridge when I get home from the gym. I may even start sticking some in the fridge at work to have during the day, or to throw in my gym bag cold and enjoy right after my workout. They are also equally delicious in a smoothie. If I’m short on time I’ll replace a piece of fruit from my smoothie and a couple of eggs with one of these.
