So over the past year I’ve had to make a concerted effort to intake more protein in my diet. It’s kind of a long, boring story but I had some tests done and found out that my iron levels were a tad low and it was causing my hair to thin (!)…and we all know that’s just simply unacceptable. Turns out all my body needed was protein (at least 3-6 oz. with every meal–bye bye veggie burgers) and some iron supplements and bam, my hair is in much better condition. Now, if you live alone, I’m sure you can relate to how much of a pain in the ass it is to cook chicken or fish for every meal (and who cooks anyway) so I’ve been on a search for an amazing protein drink but hadn’t found anything I liked until now!
Calnaurale Svelte Sustained Energy Protein Drink in Chocolate (my weakness and, of course, my favorite flavor) is delightful. Each bottle contains a whopping 16 grams of organic protein (and that’s a LOT) from fresh organic soy milk, along with organic complex carbohydrates for sustained energy. What does all that mean? It means you’re getting all the good stuff with out the chemicals. This brand also contains only 9 grams of sugar per bottle and is dairy and gluten-free for anyone who has those concerns. Personally, I try to keep as many chemicals out of my body as possible between not drinking any soda, not eating any processed meats, almost always buying organic, grain-fed eggs, etc. so a product like this makes me feel ok about supplementing lean chicken or fish for some chocolate goodness.
