A Whey to use Protein Other Than in Your Shakes
Protein powder for post-workout recovery is always the whey to go! See what I did there?
But all jokes aside, are you tired of adding whey protein to your morning or post-workout protein shake? Protein powder is way more versatile than just whey protein shakes. You can add it to pancake batters, coffee, desserts, and other non-shake varieties to jack up the protein content to help build and preserve your hard-earned lean muscle mass.
It’s time to take your kitchen game up a few notches to impress not only yourself but also your friends and family!
Below are four ways you can utilize Evogen Nutrition Isoject protein powder other than shaking it up in your standard shaker bottle or mixing it up in your blender to make a typical protein shake or smoothie.
Why Evogen Nutrition Isoject, you may ask? It’s simple. Isoject sets the bar for what a whey protein isolate should look and taste like. With 25g of whey isolate per serving, 12g of essential amino acids (EAAs), 5.6g of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and nearly zero grams of fat, carbohydrates, and sugar make this the perfect option for the recipes listed below.
My mouth is already salivating. Let’s get started!
