Are you ready for my first giveaway?
I was recently sent a care package featuring Soy Protein Bar Products. I was really excited about the opportunity to try out these products and share my thoughts with all of you. And keep reading because at the end of my post, I’ll share with you the details on how to get your very own care package!
When weight training, I’ve always been told that it is a good idea to introduce protein into my diet to help repair and build muscle. Whey protein has always been what was recommended to me, but it seems like Soy Protein is making it’s way into the lime light, proving to be just as beneficial as whey.
Soy protein is a high-quality, plant-based protein which promotes muscle growth and development and can help preserve lean body mass during weight loss. And using a combination of proteins such as soy, whey and casein, may also prolong muscle building after exercise and increase recovery compared to whey alone.
According to bodybuilding.com, when whey and soy proteins are used together in an exercise regimen, they complement each other well. Whey protein is high in branched chain amino acids, used as an important energy source by the body during exercise, while soy protein has high amounts of the amino acids arginine and glutamine that stimulate muscle formation and are beneficial during metabolic stress.
Included in my package – and what 1 winner will receive – was the following:
I tried all of the products and found that they were really tasty and filling. The one thing I noticed about the Nogii Nutrition Bar in particular, was that it did not have that protein-y aftertaste that many protein bars have. And it had 20 grams of protein!!
I loved the NOW Energy bar also! It had such a great flavor and the cranberries tasted so fresh. It was more like a granola bar than a protein bar, but still had 5 grams, and was loaded with chia seeds, which I thought was different.
In addition to these great Soy Protein Bar Samples, one winner will receive a Traveler Exercise Kit:
- A Pedometer
- An awesome jump rope (Makes for a great at home cardio workout!)
- And a Grip Strengthener
