A Natural Protein Powder

A few years back I avoided protein powders all together. I worked with a holistic lifestyle coach and protein was not a food suggested. I was put off due to the amount of artificial products in protein powders. At that time, my goals were not building lean muscle as I was still a little scared that too much protein would make me look massive. Hahaha, if only it was that easy!

In 2010, I decided to compete so I had a plan suggested by another coach. This did include protein powder. I was not really interested to use a protein powder. However, I wanted to do anything needed to be done to get the results I desired. I did use a protein at the start that did contain some artificial sweetener. As a result I did experience some discomfort.

Nowadays you can find so many protein powders that do contain natural ingredients. I love using protein powders in my recipes and creations.

I am a "networking queen" and love to connect and try out different products and share them with you all. Here is one of them.
