Protein Shake Recipes

Dymatize Elite Whey ProteinProtein shakes are an excellent way to get quality protein as well as carbohydrates and fats. Making protein shakes takes much of the guess work out of counting the content of your meal.

You know exactly what you’re getting and how much. It’s also a quick means of providing your body with essential nutrients. Nothing replaces whole foods, but protein shakes are good for pre and post workout times and can be a convenient snack between meals.

Speaking of post workout, I typically recommend a whey protein shake mixed with some simple carbs after your workouts. Whey digests quickly and at that time your body needs that quick digestion to start the recovery process.
