Product Review: All Pro Science Complete Veggie Protein

Standard

Protein Powder.  So many people love it and swear by it.  They drink their protein shakes everyday and every time I see them I’m like, “that seems like a great healthy habit, I’m going to try that too.”  So when the good people behind All Pro Science reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in trying their protein powder I said yes right away!

I worked with Alyssa who helped me select the Complete Veggie Protein to try.  Here’s what Alyssa had to say about the Veggie Protein…

…contains 23g of all-natural plant based protein, it’s gluten-free and free of allergens found in dairy, soy and wheat-based products. Whether you are a vegan or simply looking to get more nutrients from plants, our lean formula is low in sugar and contains no fillers, artificial flavoring or sweeteners.

It also contains Omega- 3 3-6-9, hemp, pea and brown rice and flaxseed powder.  Since Michael and I are both trying to cut out sugars this seemed like the best option for us.  They offer it in French Vanilla and Berry Blast favors.  I chose the French Vanilla and my protein was at my doorstep before I knew it.

Now, I’ll be honest.  I really don’t care for the taste of Whey Protein so I wasn’t sure what to expect of the Veggie Protein.  The first time I tried it I mixed it with plain water in a blender bottle.  I didn’t really care for it prepared that way but I also kind of expected that since I’m particular about protein powders.  The next time I made it smoothie style with a strawberries, banana, coconut milk and a scoop of peanut butter.  I really liked it this way, it was thick and creamy and really delicious.  The Veggie Protein definitely didn’t have that Whey Protein taste but more of a veggie taste and I much preferred it over Whey Protein.

Michael, who really likes Whey Protein, tried the Veggie Protein and really liked it.  For me, I’d only prefer to drink it smoothie style which is hard for me to make when I’m in the office all day so I think this will be a go-to snack when we are home on the weekends or when I have a day off.

The Complete Veggie Protein sells for $79.99 for 27 ounces making the price pretty comparable with other protein powders.  If you use promo code LRLY25 you’ll receive 25% off your order just for being a LiveRunLoveYoga reader!  Be sure to check out All Pro Science online, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  I should also mention you can find APS at Whole Foods, Lifetime Fitness Locations and Amazon.com which makes it super easy to get some of your own!

What I Ate Wednesday #75

Standard

I love spring, mostly because it brings with it grilling weather and changes up my taste buds.  Gone are the days of heavy stews, soups and roasts.  I’m digging salads, fresh veggies, grilled meats and so much more.  We’ve been focusing more on veggies, portion control, less sugars and more protein.  Michael is starting to lose weight and I’ve been feeling really good when it comes to food.  I’ve found that it’s easier to say no to the junk food because it just really doesn’t make me feel good since we’ve been eating so much good stuff!

Breakfast.

I’ve been loving pancakes and waffles.  During the week I’ve been having waffles with peanut butter and bananas, or with maple syrup and fruit.  This weekend we made homemade pancakes with fresh strawberries on top.  I’ve been perking up my coffee with chocolate almond milk which makes it taste so good!

Lunch. 

Lunch has been filled with variety.  Last week I was loving turkey with American cheese and mustard on a sandwich thin.  This week I have chicken and a baked sweet potato topped with salsa and sour cream.  Also in the mix have been frozen burritos.  I even bought some fresh bread to have an old-fashioned peanut butter and jelly one day.  Snacks have been lots and lots of fruit…bananas, strawberries, grapes, and apples.  I’ve also been loving raw almonds or yogurt.

Dinner.

Friday night we went to dinner at this italian restaurant near by.  There are only 7 tables in the restaurant and it always seems like there is a long wait for a table.  We got lucky and only waited 10 minutes to get a table.  The restaurant is famous for its fresh baked bread which is incredible!  I had fettucine with mushrooms and truffle oil which was so good!  Sunday we made grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and salads for dinner…and margaritas (it was Cinco de Mayo)!  Also in the mix has been fish, salad and broccoli.  We also made a healthier version of steak sandwiches with peppers and onions and a little bit of cheese.  It’s so good!
