Power of the Protein

As most of you know my relationship with exercise is complicated. I'd say it's love hate but I honestly think it's so much deeper than that. However, when fueled properly, I feel as though I can take on the world.



This past weekend I participated in The Color Run (more on that later). It's been quite some time since I participated in any type of run/walk and I knew this would be a lot of fun. Knowing that I hate the run coming up I stopped by Walmart to pick up a few things, including protein powder. 



After the run, I knew I was going to need some fuel to power me through the rest of the day.  Hooray for EAS® 100% Whey Protein. I decided the best way to recover would be to whip up a smoothie. Especially one with a high protein content. 



I've been blending for a while so I'm pretty good at eye-balling my recipes and mixing different things together (try using a cooked sweet potato sometime. It adds nutritional value and tastes awesome) to find what tastes best for me.

The best thing is that smoothies are incredibly easy to make. 

You'll need...

+ a handful of greens such as spinach, kale, etc. The choice is yours.
+ 1 banana (or 1/2 sweet potato or avocado)
+ 4-5 sliced or whole strawberries
+ 1 scoop EAS® 100% Whey Vanilla protein
+ 1c milk (I prefer almond or soy)
+ ice (optional) 


You toss everything into your blender and whip it up. I prefer to add my greens first, but that's just me. The only thing I wouldn't add first is the protein because it tends to stick to the bottom/top of your cup. 

Blend until all ingredients are mixed and enjoy!


As a side note, one of my favorite things about EAS® protein is that there's a scoop holder under the lid. I don't know about you but I hate having to dig for the scoop because it's lost in the powder. These keeps it in a clean, easy to use space. I wish all powdered products did something like this.

More than that, EAS is a quality powder. There are no fillers; no added sugar; and it's 100% pure whey.  




Be sure to check out the New NBC Show S.T.R.O.N.G where EAS® products will be featured on the June 2nd episode (9 PM EST 8 PM CST). And, if you're an Ibotta user (hello coupons!) then you can earn $1.00 when you purchase EAS® 100% Whey Protein or EAS® AdvantEdge Carb Control. You can find EAS at Walmart in the vitamin/health area. 


What do you do to recover or refuel after a tough workout, run, or race?
