Over the course of 9 years training and 2.5 years of bodybuilding, this lifestyle can get pretty monotonous (??) One of the things I honestly am sick of is protein shakes! I mean no matter how good the flavor, eventually you get bored (well at least me! So I took a few recipes I found online or concocted in my head and developed tasty AND SIMPLE protein treats! Now keep in mind, I’m a mom and business owner so my time is extremely limited (as I'm sure yours is too) so these recipes are simple, cost effective and straight to the point!
