The Easiest Healthy Protein Bite Snacks Recipe

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.

Protein Bites

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!

5 Favorite Protein Powder Recipes #ThisIsYourDay

Adding protein powder to your favorite recipes is one way to boost your protein intake for your daily diet. Protein is one of the single most important nutrients your body needs to power through the day and workouts. Read more in my recent post: Protein Shakes Your Muscles Crave During a Workout. Protein powder recipes are gaining in popularity.

I began using protein powders in some baking recipes, in icing recipes and oatmeals. Since then I have been looking for even more delicious ways to cook and bake with protein powder. Below is a round up of recipes from fellow Bloggers who also use protein powder in their own foods. When you visit the recipe pages keep in mind that having extra protein is great when you are very active or for your athletic teens to get them through a long day at school and practice.

~More Protein Talk~

When it comes to protein, I recommend Premier Protein Powder. You get 30 grams of protein per scoop and only 3 grams of sugar. There are no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners and it is gluten free. Make sure the protein products you consume offer the best ingredients like Premier Protein. Other brands out there may contain artificial ingredients and synthetic nutrients so you really want to do your homework and choose wisely. For more information and other protein powder recipes search the hashtag #ItsYourDay on social media.

High Protein Food Choices to Power Through Your Day #TheDayIsYours

I am a Premier Protein Ambassador. Opinions are my own and compensation for my stories was given

protein foods

The last time I shared some protein tips I talked about the right times to consume protein in your day. Now, as a proud ambassador for Premier Protein I want to discuss high protein food choices for you. These foods are packed with natural protein, not fillers so you can get through your day.

The obvious to start with are protein shakes and bars. Having these available in your fridge and cupboard make taking protein on the go so easy. I have been sticking to my goal of having a protein bar as my midday snack so if I know I will be out all day I put a bar in my purse. This helps me avoid a snack stop where I’m bound to by a muffin at a coffee shop or less healthy snack at a convenience store.

My absolute favorites are the Caramel Premier Protein shake and the Double Chocolate Crunch or Salted Caramel Premier Protein bar. Why do they make a great choice? These bars pack in 30g of protein with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

Admit it! You have a large jug of protein powder and are not using it, aren’t you? Do you not like to blend your own powder or does it feel like a chore to make your protein shakes like this? Try using up your powder as substitutes in recipes. I make a yummy protein icing with protein powder. You can shorten the amount of flour and add protein powder in cakes, pancakes, waffles and more.

There is protein beyond convenient bars and shakes. The best foods to put in your grocery cart on your next store run include eggs, oats, almonds, chicken (breast), greek yogurt, tuna, pumpkin seeds, peanuts to name a few. Some of these work great as snacks or to turn into meals. Try an egg salad sandwich on protein-rich bread like Ezekiel Bread. Try a chicken salad with homemade dressing and sliced almonds. However you like to enjoy these foods, remember that your body needs protein and more than ever if you are active and on-the-go. Visit Premier Protein to find more great products as well as discussions and education about protein.
