When I posted THIS to Facebook, I think some people had really never thought of this before! It’s such a simple go-to when you’re in need of a high-protein meal snack while also looking for an energy boost.
Optimum Nutrition (one of my favorite brands) recently released a series of whey protein products with added natural caffeine and B-vitamins called Protein Energy. Currently, there are four flavors available on Amazon: Chocolate, Cinnamon Bun, Mocha Cappuccino, and Vanilla Latte. Right now I’m cycling back and forth between the Mocha Cappuccino and Cinnamon Bun. Both of which are great, especially the Mocha Cappuccino!
Each scoop has 10g of high quality whey protein isolate and concentrate along with 60mg caffeine derived from coffee and green tea extract. This is a great feature because it allows the consumer to tailor the amount of protein and caffeine for each serving by adding additional scoops. Assess your caffeine tolerance and try adding it to your favorite cup of copy for some extra energy anytime of the day or before a grueling training session!
