My protein shakes needed to change.
Even though I was piling loads of healthy things into my shakes on the regular, the first lesson was that in order to stick to the guidelines, I had to ditch my typical protein powder. While it is plant-based, opting for a collagen instead was better for my overall gut health and still enabled me to get in 18 grams of protein (and 70 calories!) per serving. Plus, the best thing about collagen? It doesn't taste like anything. Huge fan of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.
