My pals over at Discount Supplements were sound enough to send me a tub of their brand spanking new paleo protein to try out for my followers!
Taking a little break from my typical number 1 flavour was actually a welcome change- I brought this protein to Croatia with me on holidays as it’s very fresh and light and felt the chocolate flavour one might be a little heavy in the heat.
The flavour I tried was orange twist- and I felt it was really unlike any other protein I have ever tried. It tastes kind of like a sparkler- the old 80’s ice loll pop for anyone as ‘old’ as me 🙂
My first thought was that i probably wouldn’t enjoy that flavour first thing in the morning but on the contrary- I actually loved it as it gave me an energy boost first thing in the morning to get up and train as I found I wasn’t able to eat very early in the morning while abroad in the heat. I think this would also work quite well with coconut water to make some orange coco protein ice lollies– eeek! I have to be honest though, I’m not typically an orange flavour fan so would love to try the apple flavour to see if I love that now too!
It’s made up of high quality beef and egg white protein and is gluten free, lactose free, sugar free, fat free, cholesterol free and 100% natural and if this sounds like something you might like to buy and try you can purchase it here. This is ideal for anyone looking for a low carb, high protein post-workout shake, particularly for those who don’t like the heaviness of a typical shake. My boyfriend also used it mixed with his aminos for during his heavier training days. If you do try it, let me know what you think. I’m not saying I’ll throw away the chocolate as I do love the pancakes in the morning as you all know 🙂 but it’s a welcome change and a nice option for variety in my diet too in terms of having a different protein source to whey!
Oh and while you’re browsing, it’s worth noting that these guys have some serious customer service- top quality products but also very friendly staffies too should you have any qs and their site is a dream to browse through too!
I also got one of their amazing 2l water bottles- ideal for anyone in an office job who struggles to down their RDA of H20! I’m a sucker for cute accessories, what can I say 😉
