HI! I will be back eventually with a post about college, it’s been the most amazing thing yet I am super duper busy so for now here is a review about About Time protein powder…Enjoy!
After having tonsillitis and my wisdom teeth out this summer, smoothies have become a major obsession of mine. However, often I was left hungry again a few hours after. I started added about 1/2 or 1 tbsp of almond butter to them which helped tide me over more, but I knew a protein powder would work too. I knew nothing about protein powder and usually make fun of guys for being obsessed with their “supplements” but I remembered reading about About Time on Jenny’s blog and thought the flavors sounded really good! The company sent me some sample packets to try and I have to say, protein powder does keep you full longer! Plus, it made the smoothies creamy without adding a banana! I loved the chocolate protein powder with frozen cherries and mixed berries.
Birthday cake and cinnamon swirl were also delicious with cherries and mixed berries, but I feel it would have been better with just a banana or something so you could taste the “cake” and cinnamon flavor more.
There nutritional facts are also pretty impressive, same as adding about a tablespoon of peanut butter in terms of calories but with less fact, carbohydrates and slightly more than triple the protein!
Since I was leaving for school that week, I
forgot decided not to buy bananas to freeze as I knew no one in my family would use them. Luckily, the protein powder created that wonderful texture without being chalky, as I read many protein powders do!
I would definitely buy the About Time brand and I loved their flavors and can’t wait to try the mocha mint when I go home!
They also sent me a bar, however, it was a Coconut Carob flavor, and while I am ALL for carob, there is something about coconut that sceeves me out, so I gave the bar to my dad to try and get his feedback, and he enjoy it. Both of us weren’t huge fans of the calorie count, as I prefer eating a meal to a little bar, but it was definitely filling.
Well, I am off to run to dinner then class!
Hope to be back soon!
With love and cupcakes,
