As a Premier Protein Ambassador I want to share what I have experienced and learned as I share this fantastic brand with others. There are many protein shakes, powders and bars out there. Many are loaded with unhealthy preservatives and sugars. Once you take the time to understand the best preservatives and sweeteners you narrow down the best choice brands by a lot. Then you can look at value and flavors. Premier Protein offers plenty of both without artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.
I do not have a large stomach for big meals so I find that I cannot consume an entire bar in one meal. I want the full amount of protein recommended to start my day so I now drink 1/2 shake and eat 1/2 a bar at breakfast and save the other halves for the next day. That is my breakfast regimen with Premier Protein bars and shakes. These go on sale often at my Costco so I stock up when they are on special every couple of months.
I find myself out of time and sometimes ingredients to make large shakes. This is why I like the pre-made ones I mentioned for breakfast. So, with my Premier Protein powders I make these energy bites once a week and my family will grab one or two throughout the day for a snack. It literally takes me 10 minutes to whip these up and no baking is required. I refrigerate them on a sheet for about 30 minutes then put in an air tight container for storage. We love them!
