Hi friends! Hope your day has been awesome so far!

I was dragging a bit this morning but still managed to get out the door to workout for 6. We switched it up a little and did P90X Kenpo today (rather than tomorrow). I really love this workout (kickboxing)! The moves aren’t too complicated and the pace is just right…definitely a favorite and one I would like to continue doing once we have completed the program.

I had the standard breakfast of two eggs (cage free) and toast. And a coffee at work.

Once home I threw together some tuna salad (tuna, shredded carrots, mayo, celery salt, pepper, and Garlic Gold nuggets) and ate it atop a bed of spring mix. I sprinkled some feta and walnuts on top.

With a blood orange and POM/water mix on the side. I almost always mix pomegranate juice with water (sparkling or still) since it’s so tart!

This didn’t really fill me up despite the protein and my hand kept reaching for chocolate…I decided to whip up a smoothie to supplement lunch rather than filling up on sweets!

A couple of weeks ago I received a box of goodies from Swanson Health Products to review on the blog. Included in that box was the Swanson Premium Whey Protein Powder in Vanilla.

I’ve been looking around for some protein powder so I was so excited to see this! I’ve never really used a protein supplement but really want to start, seeing as my workouts can be pretty intense sometimes!

Disclaimer: I received this product for free to review. All opinions expressed on Will Run for Food (good and bad) are completely honest and my own.

I put together a strawberry banana smoothie with frozen strawberries, frozen banana, milk, ice, and the above protein powder.

I think I needed less milk and more berries as it was a little bland. But as for the protein powder, I really liked it! I actually really couldn’t taste it but I only used about 1/2 a scoop. Next time I’ll add the whole scoop (20 grams of protein!) to hopefully get more of the vanilla flavor. I know some powders can be chalky but this blended in well. Thumbs up from me! I can’t wait to continue using it.

I also received (for free) this Naturally Fresh Foot Spray that I gave to Reid to use…he sprayed his boots a few nights in a row but it didn’t exactly work…his boots have been banished to the basement! 🙂 I probably wouldn’t purchase this myself.

Other goodies to be reviewed as I use them…

Do you use protein powder? What brand/flavor?
