One of my favorite places to shop on earth; the Vitamin Shoppe just got a little cooler if that’s even possible… the Vitamin Shoppe my go to for supplements, protein powder, workout fuel, and pretty much everything else I need to fuel my body; just announced a SWEET addition to it’s awesomeness! (Are you sitting down?) This is REALLY big news! They are opening a Protein Pantry!!! So you can LOAD up on protein packed pancake mixes, baking mixes, syrups, and my personal favorite flavored nut spreads. I may or may not of totally drooled on my keyboard when I did a little online stalking of their recent addition! Are you kidding me Red Velvet Nut Spread?!? Strawberry n’ Creme Protein Pancake Mix?!? My dreams/prayers have been answered! All Protein Pantry items are chalk full of protein, fiber, and are Non-GMO! Can I get an Amen!
Well sometimes as I blogger I get some pretty sweet perks… Like a box from the Vitamin Shoppe filled to the brim with such goodies! I decided you lovely people need to see EXACTLY how cool the #ProteinPantry is … so I whipped up a little video outlining some of the things I got to try out! – And yes I am wearing grey again…. But at least it’s a tank top (that counts as different right?!?)
After playing around with some of my new pantry goodies I whipped up a batch of Banana Chocolate Protein Muffins! I used the Light Chocolate Mancakes baking/pancake mix and a dollop of P28 White Chocolate High Protein Peanut Spread… Let’s just say the result was pretty dang awesome!
