My Protein Review

Health & Fitness/ Paleo/ Review

If you follow me on Twitter and have read my other posts you will know that a few months ago I made a huge change and started to eat Paleo, this was a massive transformation to my diet and I am really reaping the benefits now!

The lovely people at My Protein recently asked me if I would like to try a few of their products, obviously I jumped at the chance because I do find it quite hard to source Paleo products for me! I usually buy from Ocado but it looks like shopping at My Protein and buying in bulk could be the way forward!

Welcome to Myprotein, a fresh approach to buying sports supplements and nutrition. At Myprotein, we know from first-hand experience that nutrition isn’t a case of one size fits all. Each of us is unique and just like personal training, our nutrition should be tailored to fit our very own personal circumstances. From innovative flavouring of supplements to making massive savings when buying in bulk, we give you the choices so you never have to compromise on your nutrition, or your goals.

The growing MP community includes everyone from beginners to elite athletes, so make sure you choose Myprotein and make your nutrition personal!

I was sent 1kg tub of crunchy almond butter, 1 kg tub of smooth cashew butter, 460g of pure coconut oil and 100g of biltong.

All the products are fantastic, the nut butters are as good as any I have tasted if not better, I LOVE nut butters so having 2kg in the house is just amazing! I do use them in baking a lot but I love to snack on sticks of celery with nut butter on – it’s my little treat 🙂

The coconut oil is wonderful and smells divine, I use it do cook and I also use it as a cuticle oil. It can be used for lots of other things too even as a lubricant!

I had never ever tried Biltong before so I thought I would give it ago as I always find it hard to find something to snack on and I was really surprised by how much I like it to be honest! I thought I would hate it but it will definitely be on my shopping list in future!

I am really happy with the items that I have been sent, they are my paleo essentials and it pays to buy in bulk!

If you are intending to shop at My Protein then make sure you check out their voucher codes page to see if it can save you anymore money 🙂

A New Way of Living…

General Chit Chat/ Health & Fitness/ Nails/ Paleo

So the last you heard of me I wrote a list of things that I wanted to do for me, to give me a bit of time! Well I can say I actually managed to do a few of those things on my list…

  1. Paint my nails
  2. Get my legs waxed
  3. Finish reading The Husband’s Secret
  4. Get outside everyday
  5. Start reading up on the Paleo diet
  6. Listen to more music
  7. Declutter my bedroom
  8. Chuck out old clothes
  9. Buy a new outfit
  10. Meet up with a friend

I didn’t manage to get my legs waxed! Ha ha you should see them! I really must make that appointment TODAY!!

I painted my nails… I love doing my nails and I love the Sensationail kit that I use! This colour is called Bombshell Beauty and is just lovely!

The most life changing thing I did on my list was to read up on the Paleo diet. I read and read and read and I came to the conclusion that this really sounded like it was for me. So as of last Monday I started on the Paleo diet, not dieting, not watching the calories just 100% Paleo and I just love it!

The first 3-4 days I felt dreadful, I felt like I was walking round in a fog and I couldn’t remember anything, then on day 4 I walked out of it and my head has never been clearer! I’ve felt like that ever since and I just cannot believe the change in me! My energy level are through the roof and I feel amazing! Oh and 4lbs off in my first week was a little extra bonus too 😉

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Ruth at Let Her Eat Clean at this point because she was the person that introduced me to Paleo and following her eating clean journey is just so inspiring! More recently Jane from Northern Mum has blown me away with her progress since beginning the Paleo diet. So thank you ladies for giving me the push to do this!

I feel amazing, happy and cannot wait to continue on this Paleo journey 🙂
