For fitness lovers finding the right way to repair muscles post workout is not only important but can cost a pretty penny as well. Walmart is one of the leading retailers when it comes to finding quality products at a reasonable cost. Knowing that you can maintain a fit lifestyle even on a budget is a great way to stay on track and avoid that road of endless excuses.
When I was given the opportunity to test out a few of protein products at Walmart I couldn't be happier. This past week the Mission1 Bars kept me on the go without leaving me feeling deprived! Between teaching Zumba and doubling up on workouts having these bars handy were just what I needed!
The bars come in two flavors Cookies & Cream (my favorite) and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. The bars pack 21g of protein per serving, 17g of fiber, 1g of sugar and sweetened with Stevia. They are also gluten free with zero artificial flavors. If you have certain food allergies keep in mind these products are processed in a facility that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, eggs and wheat ingredients.
During a hectic work week, having quick and healthy options throughout the day that is plant-based protein, clean and organic is comforting especially when I am trying to stay on track. Walmart also offers Purely Inspired Protein Powder in both Decadent Chocolate and French Vanilla. This line of powder has a number of benefits including:
- 100% Plant-Based
- Gluten Free
- Dairy, Soy and Cholesterol Free
- 20g of protein per serving
- Only 2g of sugar per serving
- No artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners.
The protein powder can be had alone, baked into your favorite recipe or blended into a smoothie. I made a yummy smoothie this morning, check out the recipe below!
