The reason I like protein shakes
Supplement companies want to make you think that a protein shake can build enormous muscles for you, bring peace on earth and save it from poverty. In fact, what will really make your muscles bigger is intense workouts and a balanced diet (good food).
Bodybuilding.com published an article yesterday in wich states a few reasons why protein powder is good for you. Besides I like the taste, only the 5th reason makes sense to me:
"5. Protein Powder Can End Meal Planning Madness
Meal planning and preparation is a time-suck, but a worthwhile one. Still, there are those who don’t have the time or ability to plan our meals for the week. Because of this, some of us turn to fast food or unhealthy choices instead of something wholesome.
This is understandable; it takes time to create many of the healthy, cooked meals that you enjoy. Even if you do take the time to do much of your cooking over the weekend, there will still be instances where you’re running late and need a quick snack.
A solution? Keep protein powder on hand. It takes two minutes to blend it up with a fresh banana, one cup of skim milk, and a tablespoon of peanut butter.
It provides you with a well- balanced meal source of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats.
If you’re not at home when you need the snack, a scoop of protein powder, a third of a cup of dry oats, and a cup or two of water will get you by until you can get home and make yourself a proper meal.”
