Best Protein Shakes For All-Day Energy!

When I first started working out I didn't really know anything about protein. I had no idea how much our bodies really need each day. It's kinda crazy. If you are doing any serious weightlifting or athletic training, you should be getting about .8-1g protein per kilogram of lean body weight. While my number one goal is to always get my nutrients from whole foods, it's pretty hard to get all that protein in one day. Over the last few years I have tried all sorts of protein powders. I always try to stick to the cleanest protein I can. If I am going to supplement with powder, it's gotta be good stuff! No crazy chemically altered chalky powder you find in the back of a cross-fit gym. Yep… I went there haha.


Most of you know I went pretty much dairy free over the last couple of years. When I did, I noticed big changes in my body, but there were days I missed yogurt and other dairy based yumminess. My sister told me totry reintroducing grass fed dairy from time to time and I actually saw a HUGE difference! Ididn't get all bloaty and gassylike I used to with non-grass-fed dairy and I seemed to digest it just fine. It totally makes sense though. We always talk about ditching processed foods from our own diets, but when you consume regular dairy, you are consuming milk from cows that have been fed a processed diet their entire lives. Grass-fed cows are those who feed off the grass like they were meant to. This makes the milk richer is Omega-3 fats, vitamin E and beta-carotene.

Alright, so all that being said I found a new EXCELLENT protein powder for all you clean-eating, dairy-lovers out there! It's Kura Protein Smoothie Powder , which uses pure and pristine dairy protein from New Zealand, and I made 3 of my FAVORITE protein shakes for all day energyto share with you!
