Happy Monday, friends! We had a fun Halloween weekend filled with lots of candy and relaxing, but now it is time to get back to the grind. What better way to kick off the week than with a new healthy product find!
Last week our friends at Pretty Fit reached out to us and asked if we would like to try out their Pretty Fit Protein Powder and review it on our blog. Naturally we jumped at the opportunity! As many of you know, Tyler and I both believe in trying to get our protein from whole food sources (animal protein, plant-based, or dairy), but with our hectic schedules, and busy lifestyle – we can’t always do that. On the days where we are short on time, or have failed to do our meal prepping – we turn to protein shakes to help keep us fueled throughout the day.
Protein is incredibly important. It helps repair your cells & build new ones, along with assisting in muscle growth and development. (Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia) Tyler and I both aim to eat around 1 gram of protein per lb in bodyweight. Ex – I weigh around 120lbs, and I eat 125g of protein each day. (Note- This is based off of a recommendation from my nutritional counselor based on my fitness goals and dietary needs. What works for me may not work for you!)
Over the weekend we had the chance to try out the protein powder, and we wanted to share our thoughts about it with you. I’ll start of by saying that we’re pretty picky about what supplements we take. We don’t like eating things that have ingredients in them that we can’t pronounce (and you shouldn’t either!). Pretty Fit Whey Protein does not contain any artificial sweeteners, colorings or flavorings – so this was a step in the right direction for us. Each serving is 100 calories, has less than 1 g of carbs, 0g of sugar and a whopping 25g of cold processed ultra micro-filtered whey protein isolate per serving. (Yippee! These macros are on point!) The protein is gluten-free, lactose free, hormone free, and non-GMO. Annnnd as if that wasn’t good enough, the protein is produced in a cGMP facility in the USA that meets the FDA’s manufacturing guidelines. (Which many supplement companies don’t bother abiding by).
So on paper it for sure checks all the boxes.. clean ingredients, great macros, high quality, etc. However, you and I know that there are many things out there that might have impressive labels, and less than stellar taste. We tested the protein powder out after a tough workout.
All smiles- this stuff is delicious!! I personally liked the vanilla, but Tyler loved the chocolate. It was very smooth, blended nicely, and tasted almost like a milkshake. We give it a 10 out of 10. 🙂 If you’re interested in trying out Pretty Fit Whey Protein they are offering a $10 off coupon code to all of our followers. Just use ‘CLEAN10’ at the checkout. If you’re looking for a great way to enjoy your protein powder on the go – we suggest investing in some BlenderBottle‘s. They come with a spring-like ball in them to help break up protein powder and mix it thoroughly. Perfect for on the go 🙂
So we want to know… Have you tried supplementing your diet with protein powder?
