Protein-packed Lunch at Tenkyu Restaurant!


  
Hamachi, Sake and Maguro Sashimi at Tenkyu in San Rafael. This little spot is yummy with quick service and decent food! Definitely a place to go if you need a quick sushi/Japanese food fix!

New Favorite Protein Shake


A protein shake that ACTUALLY tastes good??  Yes please. 

I drink a shake every morning and afternoon and I’m really starting to like this new routine. Try it out!  You can get them on Amazon and also at the Vitamin Shoppe. They also have a larger sized shake that has 40g protein!  I will be getting those too 🙂

PB2… How I love thee!


If you love peanut butter, you have no excuse NOT to get it. It’s basically all natural peanut butter – without the oil! Straight up ground peanuts – 85% less fat, protein packed and amazing!!

I could seriously eat this out of the packaging. But what I do is kind of odd – but it works!

I brew my coffee (12oz).
Add 1 teaspoon of local honey.
I add ice.
Transfer iced coffee into my shaker.
Add one scoop of protein powder (Currently using Raw Fit Protein).
Add 2 tablespoons of PB2 chocolate (made with real, delicious cocoa).
Sh-sh-sh-shhhhhake it.

It’s amazing. Do it. I strongly suggest it. This way, you’re drinking one beverage only, and getting your caffeine intake as well as your meal replacement!

Yum!
