About My Protein Shake Recipes

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.

I hope my protein shake recipes help you! Use this as a guide to also create your own protein shake recipes!

Train (and eat) with Passion,
