You can love or hate protein powder. If you're like us, you've tried your share of mixes and have your favorite. But even with the best flavors out there, a shake after every heavy workout can get pretty boring. We've got some great recipes to try for adding your best protein powder to real food for a boost of nutrition and taste.

The Benefit of Protein

If you're new to working out, you may wonder why protein is such a buzzword. While some think protein is just for bodybuilders, everyone who exercises can benefit from it in their diet.

This is because your muscles are made out of protein. Working out breaks down the muscles your using, causing little tears in the fiber. That's why you feel sore the next day. Even if you're not trying to build up muscle, adding a little more protein the next day helps fuel the repair of your muscle so you're stronger and last longer during exercise.

Mix It Up

Adding protein powder to some of your favorite food is a good way to mix up your routine and keep from getting bored. Try some of these recipes this week!
