Protein Fun

Most women are not eating enough protein, I know I wasn't! Even when I felt like I was getting enough, once I started tracking it I realized I was still falling WAY short of my goal of 145g a day. 
In general women need at the very least {.8 x your body weight} every single day. 

Now that I've been tracking it I have very little problems getting in my daily requirement, but I get tired of shakes and string cheese so I'm always looking for new and fun ideas to get that protein in! I randomly came across this website, I'm Pretty Fit, which is a monthly subscription for all things protein related! 


I got my first box in a few days ago and I am thoroughly impressed with the amount of products and the selection they sent!


1  .NLA Her Whey - This delicious protein designed specifically for women contains 28g of lean protein per serving, is gluten-free, sugar free, and has added amino acids for improved recovery.

2. Protein Mini Assorted Six Pack by The Protein Bakery - We couldn’t believe something that tastes so good could also be a healthy treat. At only ~100 calories per serving and packed with 4g of protein/piece, these gluten-free treats are a great alternative when you are craving something sweet!

3.  Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix by FlapJacked - Forget the empty calories and weird chemicals you can’t pronounce hiding out in your Bisquick pancake mix because the Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix by FlapJacked tastes great without ANY artificial ingredients.

4. High Protein Coffee by Chike Nutrition - Coffee and protein? Talk about the perfect combo! We love Chike Nutrition’s High Protein Coffee. Not only is it packed with 20 grams of high quality whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate, but it has the equivalent of two espresso shots per serving.

5. Double Chocolate Chunk Bar by Quest Nutrition - Our favorite protein bar. Quest has an incredibly clean ingredient profile with only a handful of ingredients compared to competitors. Not to mention, they have amazing flavors and are only ~160 calories.

6.  Honey Almond Protein Cereal by Kay’s Naturals - Out of all the “healthy” cereals we’ve tried, Kay’s Protein Cereal is our favorite. Kay’s created a tasty, healthy cereal that is gluten-free, kosher, packed with 12 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber without any artificial preservatives, additives or sweeteners. 

7.  NLA for Her Water Bottle – BONUS!


Just thought I'd share this fun find with you guys! You can click here, I'm Pretty Fit, to read more. You don't have to sign up for a monthly box, you can just choose to buy one and try it out which I think is nice! 

Happy Friday!

  5. I'm a registered dietitian and I have to comment here and expand that you calculate grams of protein needed daily by your weight in KG, but also there are a lot of other factors that go into determining how much protein is needed. For example, if you are obese, you would need to adjust your weight and use that number in kg to determine grams of protein needed. It is not always a simple calculation for every person.

  9. Did you use protein powder while pregnant? If so, which kind? I'm currently 18 weeks pregnant and like to have a protein shake in the mornings, but wasn't sure what kind I should use...
