protein shake

Banana and ginger protein shake

Although fitness is not the main focus of this blog, it is an important aspect of my life. I do subscribe to the use of protein shakes (and other protein enhanced foods like pancakes and bars) to help increase my nutritional intake before and after workouts.

Food variety and flavour is equally important and I never like to compromise on either when it comes to healthy eating. This small twist turns an otherwise bland protein shake into warming post-workout drink.
