Protein Powder’s For Moms.

Protein powders have gotten a bad reputation in recent years. With most people associating protein powders with body building and professional athletes. However, most people don’t realize that protein powders are a great supplement for the everyday person as well. This includes us moms! Chasing around the kids all day, doing drop-offs and pickups, is a sport in its own right. Finding the time to eat a high protein meal can be extremely difficult. That’s why I’ve turned to protein powders in the morning – add a scoop of protein in my morning smoothies was an easy fix for me.

Picking the best protein powder for you…

There are a lot of different protein powders that you could be using – many of which can be found by doing a simple google search. Whey protein for women is one of the terms I searched for. I’ve found that whey protein, is a milk based powder and it worked great for me as it actually had a high amount of protein in each scoop. There’s nothing worse than getting a protein powder that has no protein.

There are many options on the market for vegetarians and vegans. One of the best plant based protein powders is pea protein. Pea protein is extremely easy to digest and still contains a high amount of protein. Another protein powder that works great is hemp protein (no, i’m not trying to trick you). Check out the image below that I snagged from It’s a detailed look at the different protein powders that are available to you.
