The Best Tasting Whey I’ve Ever Tried

Photography by Kamila Gornia

Okay, so I have been blogging for several years now. And in all those years, I have gotten the pleasure of trying many different types and brands of protein powders. Some were better than others. Some were quite great, in fact.

But it wasn’t until I tried TastyWHEY by Adaptogen that I was taken aback.

There are a lot of protein powders that claim to be the best tasting. so when I saw that Adaptogen claims to taste like a milkshake, you can only imagine how much I believed it. (read: I took it with a grain of salt, not literally).

But then I tried it with almond milk… Wow. I was shocked. It REALLY did taste like a milkshake. I didn’t blend it or anything. Just the shaker bottle I was provided (which rocks by the way), almond milk, and the protein powder… and seriously delicious!

But, hey that might have been because of the almond milk. Making it creamier. So I wasn’t TOTALLY sold yet. Then I took some with me to work and had it with water.

That’s when I was REALLY shocked. Because it STILL tasted milkshakey and it was just SO good! I’ve never had this happen with any protein shake that only requires water to taste this good.

Wow.

And no, I don’t say this a lot. I haven’t said this before. I’m not just saying that.

So what IS Adaptogen’s TastyWHEY? I’m sure now you wanna know more, right?

TastyWHEY is a high protein supplement mix that provides great nutritional value as well. It promotes peak wellness by use of a proprietary combination of exceptionally high quality whey protein, along with MCT’s, low glycemic index carbohydrates, and micronutrients AND with an AWESOME taste too!

Amazing Pumpkin and White Beans Hummus to Astonish Your Guests and Yourself

Amazing Pumpkin and White Beans Hummus to Astonish Your Guests and Yourself

I love pumpkin. It is like a lady of many faces, elegant and crazy, fulfilling and leaving you hungry for more, sweet and spicy, delicate… So, whenever the pumpkin season opens, I am as excited as only a woman in love can be. And this year I made it my priority to discover even more recipes with this orange heaven. This year, I also went for gluten-free so I had an extra motivation to incorporate even more veggies into my diet. And to make people around me follow my passion.

And so the amazing pumpkin and white beans hummus was born. When I first tried it, oh yes, I was astonished. And so was everyone who shared this dish with me!

GIVEAWAY: How to get the Farmer’s Market to your door (Door-to-Door Organics Chicago)

This post is sponsored by Door to Door Organics. All opinions are my own.

I have a confession to make.

I’m starting to really like cooking!

I know. You probably thought I cook all the time but that’s actually not quite true. In fact, I am busy most of the time so I don’t really have enough time to get to the grocery store and get the ingredients before they go bad… and then I don’t always FEEL like making the food I make, especially if I prep. Meh.

But I recently fell in love with a new service. It’s not quite new actually. Someone in my building has been using Door to Door Organics for a couple of months now and I’ve always been curious. Not sure too what it was about. And then I got to experience it finally and I was beyond excited!

I got my first package and it was filled with fruits and veggies. I really liked it because you can order your produce, and it’s ALL ORGANIC (obviously, hence the name) and most of it is local too, so it’s really awesome. Plus the prices aren’t very inflated so it’s totally worth it.

I picked the tiny box since I live alone and they suggested a bunch of veggies and fruit to be shipped (you can pick either fruit only, veggie only, or both fruit + veggie mix. I picked the mix). I liked most of the items but swapped others. I love that you have the ability to do that. No one wants to waste food.
