For people who do use protein powder regularly, chances are you either mix it with water after a solid workout, or you pour a scoop of protein powder into a smoothie. But if you’re looking to add more protein to your daily routine, here are some awesome (and mildly sneaky ways) to do so.
Ever thought about throwing some unflavored protein powder into some guacamole or bean dip? It’s so subtle, no one will know the difference. One of the best parts about this is that with the healthy fats in avocado, paired with the protein, is going to fill you up big time! You won’t be going back for seconds and you won’t overeat either – win win!
Do you like to nosh on oatmeal first thing in the morning? Add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein into the oats for an added protein boost that’s going to give you energy all day long. The carbs in the oats also help to transport to the protein to the muscles where it’s put to great use – making you stronger!
When you’re whipping your friends up some pancakes or waffles, include some protein powder into the mixture before you cook it! The protein helps keep your blood sugar from spiking too fast and crashing down at the same speed, which means your energy levels remain pretty consistent!
Soups & Stews
If you’re not big on eating meat, adding unflavored protein powder to the broth to make sure you’re getting enough protein in your meals! The powder will be completely unnoticed in a soup broth, and in stews even less so because of how chunky it is. Bonus!
