So anyone who even kinda sorta knows me . . . . k n o w s . . . . .
I'm. addicted. to. protein. shakes.
I'm pretty sure it's a FULL on addiction.
When we travel on an airplane I get all wigged out if we are not "checking" a bag "in" because that means I can't take my pre-made shakes. Which makes me have to google where we will be staying to see if there is a Hi-Health [or similar] near by.
drives. the. Pita. nuts.
I'm also not a big fan of breakfast or brunch with the family and or girlfriend because that means I have to look for a way to "sneak in" my protein shake.
Movies ---- I'm usually covered. I've got a purse that could hold half the contents of my fridge. However, if I'm going with Peanut . . . . . "there's no room for my crap" AND my purse somehow becomes hers.
Anyway . . . .
Enter the best invention EVER.
Yep. Like "protein" on the "go".
f r e a k i n g . awesome.
So you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by them to do a review.
HECK YES! Sign me up!
Ever since I received these. . . . . it has been pure bliss.
You see, I hop in the car:
BAM . . . there's my Gotein.
I go to feed
[no, do not feed your pet scorpions Gotein.........yes, they'd like it but why share?]
Share. SHARE. s h a r e? ? ?
I did "have to" share with Peanut.
She loved getting her "shake" on.
Even crazier . . . .she loved it! [which sucks for me] Which is crazy talk because she has HATED every other one she has ever tried.
It has been a [not so little] little joke around my place that I'm a weeeeee bit too excited about this product.
I took them with me all over this week.
on the way to summer camp.
Why the heck not?
Here's how you do it: [info from their website]
"Drink approximately 1/3 of a 16.9 fl. oz water.
Add complete packet of Gotein to your water bottle, swirl and shake well until completely dissolved and enjoy a tasty, low carb [GFree] shake!
Best to use between 20 to 30 minutes before and after exercise or active sport.
Can also be used 30 to 45 minutes before meals to help curb your hunger."
My favorite: s t r a w b e r r y .
Each packet is between 100-110 calories.
Contains 5-6 carbs.
Has 16-17g of protein.

My little TSA friends can kiss my x-ray loving bum. They may think I'm importing coke but . . . .
And my Pita will be happy we don't have to find the nearest health food store as soon as we land.
What's your "go-to" food
