Core Power Protein Shake Giveaway!!

Disclaimer: I received my fit kit free of charge from Core Power in order to try their product before hosting the giveaway, but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.

I was so excited when my Core Power Fit-Kit was delivered last week!! I couldn’t wait to tear into it and see what was inside and I will say it did not disappoint!!
CorePower FitKit

My Fit Kit included a Core Power sweat towel, CamelBak sports bottle, yoga mat (with carrying case), balance ball (with pump and instructional DVD), a Core Power gym bag and samples of their protein shakes!

The shakes I received were chocolate, banana and vanilla. I tried the chocolate one first and I seriously loved it! I even gave my mom a sip and she pretended like she wasn’t going to give it back! It tasted just like chocolate milk! It was very smooth and creamy, with no chalky aftertaste, which often turns me off to protein drinks.

The next day I couldn’t wait to finish my workout so that I could try the banana one! I never heard of a banana protein drink before, but it seemed like a good idea to me. It was just as good!! I think next time I want to buy one of each and mix them together to make a chocolate covered banana one. :) I’m thinking it will be great for my prerace shake before the Tinker Bell 10k and half in just under a week!!!

I did not personally try the vanilla since I let my mom have that one, she earned it, but she said it was really good and that she chugged it straight down after her workout at the gym!

They each contain 26g of protein, which is great for those of us who struggle to get enough in through meals alone. They also carry light versions in both chocolate and strawberry banana if your looking for something with less calories, and those have 20g of protein in them.

  9. Honestly, I know I'm not getting enough. My mom disliked meat, so I never really developed a taste for it. Now I try with protein supplements, nuts & legumes, dairy,etc. But I need to get better at eating eggs or something :)

    1. If you take meat out it makes it even harder! I found to get enough protein I had to have 2-3 eggs in the morning or I was playing catch up all day!

  11. I'm a vegetarian, so my protein tends to come from beans, legumes, nuts, etc. YUM!

    Replies
    1. I love nuts! I've considered being a vegetarian, but I'm too picky of an eater. I only like select veggies, some beans, and very few legumes. Plus I need variety because I get board with food.
