Ice cream maker, check.

TGIF everyone!

So tonight is Greek Fest here at UA and Wiz Khalifa(!), Dispatch(!!!), and Mother Funk are playing. I.can’t.wait.

Furthermore, this little gem arrived in the mail for me earlier this afternoon…

Ice cream maker, check.

I CANNOT wait to make this recipe. I can’t even deal with the deliciousness and genius of that concoction. Also, I have some leftover sugar cookie dough in my freezer from an Alpha Gam nutty buddy cookie shindig that I think would make an excellent addition to some homemade vanilla ice cream. Oh! And Reese Puffs because somehow those ended up in my kitchen.

Shortly before the ice cream maker found its home, I had lunch. I finished off the last of some salad greens thus giving me a disposable salad bowl. Score.

I just gotta tell you what’s up in this salad because it was so stinkin’ good. So here goes…

  • salad greens (duh)
  • cucumbers
  • grape toms
  • avocado
  • roasted sweet potato
  • Wickles pickles
  • Jennie-O turkey burger cooked in veggie broth
  • feta
  • T-lish dressing (SO good)

Must recreate again soon…like for dinner.

After lunch and said ice cream maker’s arrival, I made my way to the campus rec center. A few minutes before I left I had a pre-workout supplement drink.

Last week My Supplement Store sent me some more all-natural and organic samples to try including this Beta Peptide supplement (what’s in my shaker bottle).

Usually I’m not one for supplementing before a workout, I’ll just have a small snack instead ’cause I’m lazy. Surprisingly this supplement helped keep my stamina up during my workout and decreased muscle burn/fatigue. Another surprise, it tasted just like fruit punch! I really like the fact that Beta Peptide is comprised of 29 nutrient-dense fruits including 10 organic fruits. Quite the superfood supplement that I would definitely spend my own money on!

(Oh and my roommate can also vouch for the taste quality.)

MSS sent me a few other samples…

I look forward to trying the remaining samples. They all fit the bill for being all-natural or organic and are easy to add into anyone’s everyday routine.

If you haven’t read my other review on My Supplement Store you can do so here.

I’m off to shower and get ready for a fun evening. Peace out my friends!

Citrus Mint Sensation Smoothie + MSS

Hello there friends!

A couple of weeks ago the very friendly people over at My Supplement Store sent me some awesome whey protein samples to give a try.

IMG_6320 IMG_6303

MSS is an online supplement store that has over 5,400 products to browse through. Ranging from your daily multivitamin to pre and post-workout supplements to snack bars and other goodies, MSS is bound to have exactly what you’re looking for. In fact, My Supplement Store says they stand for commitment, service, knowledge and dedication to their number one asset: you the customer.

Pretty neat, huh?

First up of the samples I received is Hexapro Cookies n’ Cream whey protein supplement.

I must say…I’m most excited to try this pfizer viagra 50mg whey powder in a protein fudge recipe. Oy, I’m drooling at the mere thought.

Next up, Isoflex Chocolate whey protein supplement.

Nothing like the signature chocolate protein powder. I’m thinking green breakfast smoothie for this one. After a good morning sweat sesh? Check yes.

Lastly, Isoflex Chiller Citrus Peach Sensation whey protein powder.

I actually enjoyed this whey powder in a smoothie for dinner the other night and it totally hit the spot after a quickie workout.

Let me elaborate…

Citrus Mint Sensation Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 serving Isoflex Peach Sensation whey protein*
  • 1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed**
  • 3 fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions

Add everything to a high-speed blender then blend and enjoy!

*If you don’t have Isoflex’s Citrus Peach Sensation on hand then you can either sub the frozen banana for a frozen peach and use orange juice instead of almond milk.

**MSS has tons of different flaxseed variations and brands on their site so if you’re looking for a good flaxseed brand definitely check it out. Actually if you’re looking for anything at all you should check it out.

The perfect summer smoothie!

Another good detail about these protein powders is the nutrition stats.

Admittedly, I’d prefer the ingredients list be much shorter but the fact that this powder in particular has 0 g sugar, 3 g carbohydrates, and 27 g protein for only 120 calories toootally makes up for it. Tastes pretty darn good, too. 😉

MSS is so awesome you can take a look at the nutrition information on all of their products. Goodbye searching high and low on the interwebs for a nutrition fact!

Question of the Day: What supplements do you always have on hand? Whey protein powder? Vitamins?
