TRAIN HARD THIS WINTER WITH WHEY

 

 

Anyone getting up in the middle of the night will notice that there’s a definite chill in the air. Winter is on its way back, slowly but surely, and pretty soon we’ll all be getting our sweaters and jackets out of storage. This doesn’t mean that you can put your gym gear into storage once you've unpacked all the winter clothing. It’s as important, if not more so, to keep up your fitness routine during the colder months. WE generally eat more over winter, and we eat far stodgier food. The summer salads and lighter al fresco meals are replaced by casseroles, potatoes, rice and loads of delicious warm ingredients.  We tend to exercise less and eat more. It’s far more difficult to get up early for that 5am run when it’s not even 5 degrees outside.

 

But winter is actually an excellent time to kick your workout routine up a notch. Use the colder months to get the jump on everyone else who’s wrapping up warm in front of the fire. Working out makes you warmer, gets your blood flowing and releases endorphins, which, let’s face it, we all need a little more of over the season. It also makes you feel a little less guilty about eating the odd bowl of malva pudding. What if I told you that I have found the most fantastic product to make your Winter workout more enjoyable?

 

 

I’m always on the hunt for a great Whey Protein Powder, and for me it has to be a chocolate one. It has to taste great, fill me up and help me to train harder and longer. Thankfully one exists, and its the Pure Nutrition Whey Chocolate Protein powder. 

This powder is not only high in protein, but its naturally rich in BCAA’s. With added Leucine, its lactose free and easy to digest, making it the perfect before or after workout food. 

 

Use a scoop of it in a protein shake as a meal replacement if you’re on the go, or add it to your oatmeal like I do. I’m including my delish recipe for you below. It’s a real winner.  Whey Protein is the number one protein to always use because its primary purpose is to aid in recovery. It’s also a source of essential amino acids to assist in overall maintenance of your general health. With 20g’s of protein, 1.5g’s of carbs, and only 0.2g’s of sugar, its definitely the best powder to use. 

 

CHOCOLATE OATMEAL AND PEANUT BUTTER

 

 

Cook your oats on the stove or the microwave, however you would normally do it.

 

Scoop one serving of Chocolate Whey Protein Powder into the cooked oats.

 

Add a generous size spoon of peanut butter to the mixture, and mix it all in.

 

Top off with a few slices of fresh banana
