I've always been about doing things as natural as possible (of course, arsenic is natural, but you know what I mean). So, after many different combinations of ingredients, I've come up with a way to make a shake that has good-for-you stuff in it and that tastes like a chocolate-almond shake (no joke!)!
I will usually have one or two of these a week and usually only after a great pump where my muscles are in need of repair (I'll add the whey to it). You can easily have this for breakfast if you're in a rush and omit the powder; it will still taste pretty much the same and grant you some lasting energy (unlike that donut or bagel).
The Vital Proteins are simply cow collagen (flavorless) and contain a decent amount of arginine to improve blood flow before you exercise and the whey is just whey and nothing else. So, let those other people keep their $4 a scoop powders loaded with artificial sweeteners and other things you can't spell even while looking directly at them; you know better and now you have this!
