My life is crazy. I will come right out and say it. It's busy, it's hectic, and sometimes I wake up not even knowing where I am, because I travel so much. When I am home in between my travels, life becomes even crazier...it's a mad rush to catch up on work, spend time with my friends and family, take care of household duties...sometimes I feel like I am running just to stand still. Diet and exercise? Um, yeah, sure. I TRY. I try to stay active when I am traveling, and when I am home, I get a tiny bit of a simple fitness routine in, but my diet plays an enormous part of maintaining my figure.
With that in mind, I am always looking for ways to make eating well a little easier...sure, I'd love to just stock up on fresh fruits and veggies and eat lean meats and blah blah, but that's so far from my reality that it's laughable. I need simple, convenience items that I can throw in my purse, throw in my day pack, or simply take to my desk on those days when I spend 10 hours at the desktop catching up on blog work.
Things like Premier Protein shakes.
Newly available at Target stores nationwide, Premier Protein shakes are just perfect for a quick on the go breakfast, a snack when you're feeling drained during a long workday, or as a post workout recovery snack!
Now, while I joke often about hating gym rats...I actually work out at home a little. Sometimes a lot. And I love to kayak so much that I bought my own two years ago! One of the weird things about working out is that I am usually ravenous afterwards...doesn't that defeat the purpose of working out?! These shakes make that a moot point because they're low in fat, only 160 calories a serving, and they only have a few grams of sugar! YES. They're perfect for my low carb lifestyle!
Premier Protein shakes also pack a whopping 24 vitamins and minerals...while they aren't going to replace my daily multivitamins and supplements, I really appreciate the fact that I can drink it and know that it's not just empty calories! They taste good and are good for you too!
Now, I personally am a sucker for anything chocolate, so that's my favorite. But the Strawberries & Cream?! It's so rich and creamy...while it's not on par with a desert, it's fantastic for those who want something sweet without using up all of their calories or carbs for the day. The Strawberries & Cream is only 2 net carbs per serving. That's music to my strawberry-loving ears. A new favorite afternoon snack is a Premier Protein shake and some fresh strawberries. YUM!
Available in five rich and creamy flavors, including Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberries & Cream, Bananas & Cream and Caramel, you can't go wrong with one of these delicious shakes, anytime of day!

Protein shakes are an intricate part of my morning routine!! I'll definitely have to check this brand out. Thanks for sharing.
A blogger's like is crazy, isn't it? I see my life getting busier by the minute. I'll have to try these!
I definitely need to get something like this in my diet. I am exercising quite a bit more and I know I have not increase my protein. I will check these out.
Looks good, and I like how it comes packaged ready to go. As much as I like reusable containers, it is really gross to bring them to work and they sit in the heat all day and then in the car and the shake basically gets baked on to the container. These look tasty and also so convenient!
I love Premier Protein Shakes. I keep them in the house at all times. They're great for pre or post workout, and they're also good for a quick blast of nutrition when you need a fast snack.
