4 Mistakes You’re Making with Your Protein

Get more protein in your body.” Protein is known to be an essential nutrient you have to consume every day. This muscle-builder is a must-have for anyone who wants to get fit, grow more muscles and get a shredded physique. But even if it’s healthy, there are many common mistakes of consuming it. Avoid these blunders and you’ll reach your bodybuilding, fitness and weight loss goals faster.
1. Eating Proteins from The Same Source
A “complete protein” is one that offers all 9 essential amino acids. Getting your protein from various sources will ensure you’re getting all amino acids. Plus, you’ll get the fiber,vitamins and other nutrients that grow muscle, speed up weight loss and prevent disease. Aim to get these protein-loaded foods into your system daily.
2. Getting Your Protein in Only 1 Meal

Don’t limit proteins to a single meal. As much as you’ve got to eat several times a day to sustain a high metabolism, you also have to ensure those meals and snacks contain protein. So don’t wait until dinner or after your exercise to take it all in one swoop. Distribute your protein consumption to absorb it all and to keep you energized throughout the day.
"Note: Though protein is important, consuming too much of it (especially post-workout) is bad as your body will accumulate the excess as fat."

3. Munching On Protein Bars
Protein bars may be convenient and a healthy snack alternative, but many aren’t much better than candy bars. Do your homework and read the labels.

4. Buying ANY Protein Supplement
Don’t just grab any protein powder you see. Do your research and stay away from those packed with sweeteners. A quality whey like this one is a great choice.

Now that you know how to take your protein better, you’ll be able to take this nutrient’s benefits to the next level!

Protein Pupp Chow!

Traditional Puppy Chow a.k.a. Muddy Buddies are loaded with fat, but this slimmed down version is packed with protein! Makes for a deliciously perfect pre or post workout snack! 

NOTE: This is not my recipe, I found this on A Fit Philosophy.

Protein Puppy Chow

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

3/4 Cup (30g) Chex Cereal
4 TBS (24g) Chocolate PB2
Liquid Vanilla Stevia (to taste)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 TBS (10g) Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I suggest True Nutrition Whey because its the best)


In a large mug or bowl, mix the Chocolate PB2 with water. I would use a little more than the recommendations in the instructions because you want the consistency to be a bit liquidy. Add vanilla extract and vanilla stevia to mixture and stir until everything is smooth. (for more protein mix with liquid egg whites instead of water)

Pour cereal in mug/bowl with PB2 mixture and stir gently with spoon until all Chex is completely coated.

Pour PB2 covered Chex into Ziploc bag. Pour protein powder on top of Chex in Ziploc bag, seal bag, and shake it baby, shake it!

When all of the Chex looks to be covered in white protein powder goodness, put back in mug and enjoy!
