    Designer Protein Perks and Recipes!

    We love giveaways! This week on our Instagram we are giving away 4 bundles of Designer Whey Protein with a Sweaty Band! Best part about it is all you have to do is tag your workout partner! That person who always pushes you through those last couple burpees or miles! If you haven't heard of Designer Protein, you are missing out! A lot of people have the misunderstanding that protein will make you fat or turn you into a body builder overnight. That is completely wrong, if you choose to add whey protein powder to your diet, you'll be taking in more than muscle-building strength 'gains'. Whey protein has many health benefits including immune support, bone health, sports health, weight management and overall well being. And as women, we need to keep our bones strong and supportive! You are also less likely to get the flu or any other bugs if you are adding lots of protein power to your diet. We have TONS of recipes that we love to use with our Designer Protein, but didn't want to overwhelm you! We decided to share our top two favorite smoothies! Designer Whey Protein Cake Batter Protein Smoothie Serves 1 1 Scoop Designer Whey French Vanilla Protein Powder 1 Cup Vanilla Soymilk ½ Frozen Banana ¼ teaspoon butter and nut extract 1 cup crushed ice Blend it all together and BOOM! You have yourself an amazing smoothie! Granola Breakfast Smoothie Serves 1 Ingredients 1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries 1/4 Cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt 2 Tablespoons + 1 Tablespoon Granola 1 scoop French Vanilla Designer Whey Protein Powder 1/2 Cup Vanilla Soymilk Blend it all together and your morning is off to a great start!! (PS. We love adding more granola afterwards as well) For more recipes, check out Designer Protein here!

    Pre and Post Workout Fuel 🎉

    Ready to Run Far and Get SWEATY?! Not so fast! Before you get started on your training, you need to make sure your body is functioning optimally and your muscles are growing strong!

    The main goals of your Pre-Sweat session nutrition are to: • Reduce muscle glycogen depletion (AKA reduce hitting a wall during your workouts) • Reduce muscle protein breakdown (AKA reduce muscle damage) • Reduce post workout cortisol levels (AKA reduce having a muscle meltdown) Okay, okay, enough with the science terminology. Let’s actually make this happen!! In order to make this happen, carbohydrates and proteins are going to be your new BFFs. Here are a few of our favorite pre-workout snacks that do just that! Whole Wheat Toast with Sliced Banana and Cinnamon As we said earlier, you will make carbs and proteins your new gal pals. You never want to favorite a gal pal, so it is crucial to not favor either carbs or proteins, but get the perfect mix of both. Greek Yogurt and Granola Getting ready for a long run? Eat some yogurt first. It's easy on your stomach, and when paired with granola or trail mix (without the good stuff) it can give you the little boost of energy your body needs to get you through a run!
    Apple Wedges with Almond Butter Eat the right kind of sugar before your workout and while you're at it, slap some almond butter on your apple. This will amp up your energy levels and help with hunger! Apple > Candy If you are in a hurry, one of our favorite quick snacks are protein balls. Check out PopSugar's Peanut Butter Protein Balls here.
    Seriously, it's almost like a treat, but keeps you energized throughout your whole workout!
    After you are finished breakin' a sweat, you should eat your post workout snack within 60 minutes of your workout. This repairs the damage done to your cells and helps you recover faster! It is usually a small protein snack or shake, but we have a few different options to keep you on your toes! Chocolate Milk Our favorite post workout snack at Sweaty Bands is chocolate milk. Yes, you read that right, chocolate milk! We have even heard that chocolate milk can be better than sports drinks. Got milk, anyone? Cottage Cheese + Fruit; simple as that. BOOM! Veggie Omelet with Avocado We know you all already know eggs are a great source of protein and help aid in muscle recovery and growth. So switch up your daily boring routine of scrambled eggs and make this amazing omelet!! And we like to put avocado on everything. If you don't, it’s okay we still like you.

    Salmon and Sweet Potatoes Salmon is always the talk of the town around Sweaty Bands Headquarters. Customs Manager, Sheila, is always on top of her A-game when it comes to new salmon recipes. One of her favorite foods to pair with salmon after a work out is sweet potatoes. They both play an excellent role in helping to regulate insulin levels and give your joints the support they need. Sweet potatoes are a perfect way to get those complex carbs in and help restore glycogen levels (which we mentioned above).
