I ended up crashing around 10 pm last night (I'm a party animal, what can I say). As a result, I woke up at 6:50 AM and couldn't go back to sleep! I got up and did some laundry/ironing/dishes and then went for a quick run outside (2.4 miles). After, I went to Body Pump. It felt good to get a good workout in. The rest of my day was spent cleaning up some more of the boxes in the house and giving Frankster a bath. My throat has been starting to bother me (I hope I'm not getting what Josh had last week), so I took some meds and a nap.
After my workout today, I tried another kind of Jay Robb protein, Strawberry Egg White protein. I have been looking for a good protein powder for a while, as I do not think I am getting enough protein most days(0.8 grams of protein per kg of body mass to 1.2 g/kg per day). The following are my thoughts, I am not a dietitian or a nutritionist, so if any readers are- please provide feedback and comments on the nutritional information and I will post them up tomorrow!
A single serving of Jay Robb contains (according to the Jay Robb website):
- 24 Grams Of Protein Per Serving
- Lactose Free
- No Fat
- No Cholesterol
- No MSG
- No Aspartame
- No Acesulfame-K
- No Sucralose
- No Artificial Flavors
- No Artificial Sweeteners
- No Artificial Colors
- From Chickens Not Treated with Hormones
Ingredients: Egg albumin, xylitol, natural flavor, xanthan gum, lecithin, stevia, citric acid, red beet powder.
I mixed mine up with 1 cup of milk and a few ice cubs in my magic bullet. The packet contains 120 calories and the 1% milk I used contains 100 calories per cup. All together, this little mix has 220 calories.
The flavor was subtle, but delicious, and the powder mixed in perfectly with the milk (thank you Mr. Magic Bullet). Over the next week, you will see me testing a few more powders. For more awesome info on protein powders, check out this post on the Broccoli Hut
