Good morning lovelies! Protein powder has become sort of a staple ingredient in my diet, because I eat plant-based at home I find it an easy way to make sure I get a filling snack in between lunch and dinner in a smoothie. I’ve gone from not understanding the point of smoothies to absolutely loving them! Especially smoothie bowls, eating them with a small spoon and with toppings on makes me chew them slowly. This in turn starts up the digestion and makes sure you feel full rather than when you drink it. It feels like it just runs through me then. Plus I get a sore stomach from drinking smoothies, so give it a try if get bloated after drinking smoothies.
It’s been a while since I said in this blog post I was going to let you know what I thought on Missfits Nutrition so I thought better late than never! At least I’ve had a chance to properly try it before letting you guys know what I think…
When I started my venture out into the world of protein I was using Neat Nutrition’s vegan vanilla protein. Since I really didn’t have much experience with how any other brands tasted I thought it was alright. It didn’t taste great but then I had also heard that protein powder doesn’t really taste great anyway.
Then at the SFN Expo I came across Missfits Nutrition. I don’t why but something about it caught my eye when we were browsing about that made me stop and what to try their protein samples. I really liked the taste of the powder even though it was only mixed with an water or almond milk I think. That was a game changer for me because I disliked Neat Nutrition’s protein on it’s own with just water or a plant-based milk.
They had a very generous deal on during the Expo so I ended up leaving with two packets of their vegan vanilla protein. I was convinced at that point that chocolate was just not for me, however the guy at the stall handed me some samples of their vegan chocolate so I thought it would be rude not to try! I did eventually dare to try it in one of my smoothies and I can say that I’m now a chocolate protein kind of girl as well. LOVE it! My most recent order was actually just the chocolate, didn’t think that would ever happen.
My favourite way of eating my smoothie bowls is when they’re blended with frozen banana and loads of ice to make it like an ice cream. It’s DELICIOUS. Since I’ve started using Missfits I have a couple of times had to go back to my old bag of Neat Nutrition lying in the back of my drawer because I’ve run out and was waiting for a new delivery. Going back and having Neat again after trying something else you can really taste the difference. I much prefer Missfits I have to say.
I know now I’m being very much a creature of habit and just continuing to use Missfits when I perhaps should try other brands too. I’m quite tempted to try Form Nutrition and Sun Warrior. If you guys have tried them let me know what you think, or if you have any other recommendations send them my way.
