This morning I woke up and tried going on the treadmill. I made it to 8 minutes (only .6 miles) and it wasn't comfortable so I lifted instead. After lunch while Nick was napping, I tried again and had a glorious 2 mile run. That is a record, I haven't ran that much in about 5 weeks. It felt really good cardio wise but wasn't all that comfortable in my lower abdomen. I definitely pushed it a bit - the level of comfort and probably won't do too much the rest of the day, but it was worth it!
I just wanted to summarize my Jay Robb experience and tell you what I will ultimately use.
There was whey protein, egg white protein and rice protein.
The whey was my favorite in either vanilla or chocolate. It was tasty, went down easy, made great "ice cream" and I thought the ingredients and nutritional facts were stellar. The egg white protein and rice protein would fight for 2nd, but it wouldn't be close to the whey. Today I mixed the strawberry egg white in the mixer and it still had chunks in it - the taste of the strawberry is definitely tasty, but I preferred the chocolate one, which seemed to mix well.
Bars: There are 4 bars - cashew coconut - love the combo, very tasty! Fudge brownie - absolutely delicious, and then peanut butter Jay bar and Almond Energy Bar. I am saving the latter two for when I'm in the hospital and need energy or a boost. I'll report back on them but the bars are definitely very tasty and high in protein. Thumbs up!
I ended up ordering one vanilla whey bag and one chocolate whey bag. I think if I wanted the rice taste, I would order the chocolate or vanilla rice protein, but it was an iffy taste for me. I think I'd bag the egg white. I think it will be hard to get past the whey and want to order the other two so I'm sticking with the whey! If you have a food allergy or don't do whey, I'd say try either the rice or egg white protein and I would definitely recommend the bars.
If you spend over $25, you get free shipping. For 12 oz of chocolate/vanilla, the cost was $23.75. I got one of each so scored free shipping. Thank you Beth at Jay Robb for the opportunity to try these out!
