Tasty Tuesday

If I started a link-up called Tasty Tuesday would you guys link-up?


I'd love for the link-up to be recipes...let me know if you'd join in!




Until I start the link-up - today is going to be something delicious I just purchased. 

As I've stated before, I'm a health nut and workout fiend. With that being said, I just recently ran out of my protein (oh no!) so had to purchase more.


With a nice recommendation from a body building friend, he suggested Syntrax Nectar Sweets Chocolate Truffle, 2.12lbNutrition & Fitness) which, at first, I was iffy about. I mean...I don't want to get huge. (I know, you can only get huge as a lady if you start taking testosterone, but I also don't want to gain weight.

I am SO happy with my decision to take his advice.


Not only have I put it just in water, but also soy milk - and it tastes delicious! There are actually SO many flavors besides Chocolate Truffle (I'd highly recommend this one though!) - strawberry, vanilla, iced tea, lemonade, fuzzy navel - so many choices. My friend also suggested fuzzy navel and iced tea. I like the chocolate - it helps with my chocolate craving. ;)

OH and I always take my protein post-workout (which consists mostly of strength training - little cardio.) With my work schedule, it winds up that my workout time enables me (most days) to have my post-workout protein drink with my lunch - which is great because it adds even extra protein!




Have you ever had a protein powder that every time you take a sip, you have to mix it up again? I really don't like that. It bugs me. No joke, I've only had to mix this Nectar Protein once & not again!


If you decide to grab some of it - let me know what you think! Would love to hear your reviews on it as well!


Have a productive and wonderful Tuesday! ox

  1. How do you use protein powder? As a meal replacement? After a work out? I'm so confused! I've always wanted to try one, but never know HOW to use it! :( AND I am not much of a cook (yet?!) but I would try to participate in your link-up if you did it!!! :)
