Staying energized and motivated is one of the things I struggle with on a daily basis. I have a busy schedule, like many moms. I work, I help with homework, I play chauffeur, I take kids to lessons, I clean my home, and I write. Most of the time all of this happens within the same day and I’m left grasping at straws for energy options that keep me going and feeling great.
When I successfully make it through my day and still have time to read a book, it isn’t due to getting lucky. It’s because I took the time to make sure I took care of myself. Unfortunately for me, taking care of myself often has to meet the on-the-go and easy requirement.
Not an easy thing to find.
V8 Protein Bars & Shakes
Hello easy and on-the-go friendly V8. Protein is an extremely important part of my day, and is one of the things that keeps me going. Have you ever tried to peel a hard boiled egg while taking your daughter to school? I did, and failed miserably…and I wasn’t even the one driving. The V8 Protein Shakes and Bars are a much better, and definitely more enjoyable alternative.
What is amazing to me is that these bars and shakes mix together ingredients we all know, love, and trust. Ingredients such as quinoa, brown rice, and sweet potatoes with hints of honey and cocoa for a little extra kick of tastiness.
These V8 products prove one thing: V8 is a pro at blending the good stuff.
The V8 Protein shakes come in the following flavors, and blend soy, pea, brown rice and quinoa proteins with sweet honey and sugar for an enjoyable flavor experience.
- Chocolate Raspberry
These shakes contain 12 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, a quarter cup of vegetables, no high fructose corn syrup, and as much calcium and Vitamin D as a glass of milk. Right there we’re getting more than just an energy boost, but daily nutrients that can be difficult to get enough of.
The bars combine soy, pea, brown rice and quinoa proteins with sweet honey and sugar for the extra energy boost we can all use, while coming in the following flavors:
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Pomegranate
- Oatmeal Raisin
Similarly to the shakes, the bars contain a lot of great nutrients, such as 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, no high fructose corn syrup an a quarter cup of vegetables in each bar.
After having some time to try them all, I am nothing but impressed. I will buy them again, but my favorites have to be the Vanilla shake and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar (pictured above). They are great.
My favorite thing about the V8 Protein products is that they give me the best start to my day. I normally have a shake for breakfast and a bar before my lunch. Since mornings are my busiest time of each day I have found that prepping my body with enough protein helps me stay focused for longer, and feeling better throughout my day.
Protein is one of my saving graces.
