Forever on the quest for a quick, easy breakfast that’s healthy and filling. And a breakfast that I don’t have to spend too much time in the kitchen whipping up. Because ain’t nobody got time for that first thing in the morning – especially when you’ve got a mile long to-do list. Who’s with me?! 

I’ve had smoothies for breakfast for some time now, but noticed they weren’t really that filling. And I ended up being hungry a few hours later. Which is why I was beyond excited to get home from my trip up to Chicago with NOW® to try out their protein powder. I’m happy to report that after adding it into my go-to smoothie recipe the results have been great! Energy levels are up, and I’m staying full much, much longer. I know most of you are probably thinking to yourselves, “Duh, Josh!” But I’m not a fan of ingesting things I can’t pronounce i.e. most protein powders. Thus the reason I’ve excluded it from the mix, until now. 

Not the case with NOW though! Their protein powder (along with all their other products) are 100% natural, AND you can pronounce all their ingredients. While in the Chicago area with their team I was able to tour their facilities and meet some of their team, and I’m officially a life long fan now. From the culture they embrace to the high standards they hold themselves to they are a breath of fresh air in this space.
