Premier Protein = Happy Me!
Nice sweat! This is post 10 mile tempo run and I was a hot sweaty mess! The amazing people at Premier Protein sent me one of these:
It was filled with 2 of each: Chocolate and Vanilla Shakes, Yogurt Peanut Crunch Bar, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar, and Double Chocolate Crunch Bar.
I have a hard time getting adequate protein in my diet and I love that each bar/shake offers 30 grams of protein! The Chocolate shake has 160 calories, 3 g of fat, 340 mg of sodium, 500 mg of potassium, 5 g of dietary fiber, 1 g of sugar, and 30 g of protein. The Vanilla shake has 160 calories, 3 g of fat, 330 mg of sodium, 390 mg of potassium, 2 g dietary fiber, 1 g sugar, 30 g of protein. The only problem I have with these shakes is that my boys keep sneaking and drinking them!!!!! They love them just as much as I do. The shakes are super quick and easy to digest after a tough run/workout.
The bars are amazing also and the perfect size! The Double Chocolate Crunch Bar has 270 calories, 6 g of fat, 330 mg of sodium, 340 mg of potassium, 26 g total carbs, 2 g dietary fiber, 9 g of sugar, 30 g of protein.
The Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar has 280 calories, 7 g of fat, 420 mg of sodium, 190 mg of potassium, 23 g total carbs, 1 g dietary fiber, 8 g of sugar, 30 mg of protein. This is my favorite bar!!
The Yogurt Peanut Crunch Bar has 290 calories, 8 g of fat, 410 mg of sodium, 140 mg of potassium, 24 g total carbs, 1 g dietary fiber, 10 g of sugar, 30 g of protein!
I am a huge fan of these products and their delicious taste! As i am sitting here writing this my 7-year-old is begging me for a bar!! I better buy these by the case! Costco has the shakes but I have not seen the bars there yet. But you can go online to PremierNutrition.com and purchase the shakes, bars and other goodies through the website. I am hooked and hope others will give them a try!
