okay, so i am a big fan of drinks & protein...i usually have at least one meal replacement shake a day, not including post workout, and it's usually for breakfast...
i have TMJ in my jaw, i don't like over chewing..smoothies are great, but so many smoothies are a gazillion calories and loaded with artificial bad stuff.
so yea, i usually drink beachbody's shakeology-(it comes in chocolate or greenberry), it's delicious, has protein, antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, probiotics, counts as a hell lot of vegetables, and a plethora of amazing wonderful stuff (check dianemary.com or shakeology.com/dianemary126 for more info) It tastes yummy and you can vary the flavor by adding different things in. (its 140 calories before add ins)
As much as shakeology holds a huge place in my heart, and i have not gone a day without this since march, I can't do it for breakfast in the morning during the winter. Why? I drink it smoothie style- 15 (yes, fifteen) ice cubes, thick shake like and well, IT FREEZES ME!!
I've been having it for my lunch or midafternoon snack now because i'll never do without it and it's usually warmer not in the AM......i can't heat shakeology because it will kill the live enzymes in it and you don't want enzymes killed, it ruins the health benefits.
so what's a protein drink obsessed chick to do? find a protein you can heat! and boy DID I EVER
i found this stuff called click (drinkclick.com), dubbed as the "first and only espresso protein drink"
Yes, it's like protein coffee. This stuff is 120 calories, has vitamins and minerals, 15 grams protein & a double shot espresso! You can warm it up or freeze it (so long frap-o-what-o's?) and enjoy a mocha drink GUILT FREE!
Now, as a girl who needed starbucks rehab at one point in her life, i'm ecstatic to find click. It's protein you can warm up & it tastes like coffee!!(did i just repeat myself?)
but really...now you can have your yummy coffee and drink it too!
It got delivered to me the other day, the company even sent a cool shaker cup for free! So on a cold NYC winter morning, with my quinoa pancakes (sparkrecipes has my recipe) I had a hot cup of click..i'm in love. It was SOO GOOD!!!
Not to mention a double shot of espresso to start to day and right before a workout is fun! No wonder I ripped through RevAbs like Wonder Woman!
okay, i apologize...when i love a product, i obsess about it and have to tell the world...i honestly don't get a dime if you buy click or not, i do get kickback on shakeology, but please- i'm not a sales chick (ugh. ew) I just talk about what I use & what has helped me stay healthy & maintain my weight loss. Click & Shakeology are 2 different things, i can't compare them except for the awesome similarities that they taste great, have protein, vitamins, minerals & are low calorie. And we all know as active women (and men), you need a good amount of protein every day! The drinks both rock. Try them, don't try them, if you have a protein drink you obsess over, I'd love to try it. Cheers!
