I got something exciting in the mail this week!
Gotein sent me some samples of their product to review. Gotein is a whey protein powder in a convenient “on-the-go” style package. From Gotein’s web site:
“Whether you are an athlete with a hectic training regimen or someone with a busy day to day schedule, Gotein is a perfect protein supplement for you. Designed to mix in a standard 16.9 oz water bottle, Gotein is a portable source of protein for any individual. Simply add a stick of Gotein to a standard 16.9 oz bottle of water, shake and then enjoy. Containing only 100 lean calories, Gotein provides 17 grams of protein and is the only protein drink mix that offers 24 of the essential vitamins and minerals needed to fuel the body. Gotein is truly the perfect low carbohydrate, low calorie protein supplement for those individuals looking to maintain a healthy diet balance throughout the day.“
I enjoyed being able to take a packet with me to the library, where food is not allowed, but closed drinks are. A great way to “sneak in” an afternoon snack:).
I am pretty picky about my protein powders, especially when I am drinking them plain (in water only), but these passed the test! They mix well and don’t have a very strong “protein powder” taste to them–you know the one I mean.
I did still enjoy mixing them in some other concoctions this week. I used one of the chocolate packets for my chocolate protein bake.
And I mixed another chocolate packet in my favorite smoothie recipe–peanut butter and banana–to make it peanut butter, banana, and chocolate. Chocolate makes everything better (this is my life motto, by the way)!
