When to Drink a Protein Shake!

Meal and Snack IdeasRenee DickComment

First off let’s just clarify that protein is not just for people looking to put on muscle. Protein is essential for every single person, It’s main role is to repair and grow muscle. It also uses more energy to break down in turn helping you feel fuller longer. Now that you know what it actually does, I wanted to share why I personally use it.

I have been on my fitness journey for 4 years now, being the picky eater that I am, I don’t eat a wide variety of foods. This means a ton of chicken, ground beef and more chicken and ground beef. Not to appetizing when you eat it every day. I started getting burned out eating the same food every day. I am talking lunch was some sort of chicken and dinner would be some sort of ground beef or turkey, weeks and months at a time.


I started using 1st Phorm’s Greens powder to help supplement my lack of veggies, after getting great results with the greens powder I decided to look into other products that could help me. Insert Level 1, it is a meal replacement protein powder. It is made to mimic the digestion rate of a whole food. This blew my mind, I was only taking protein powder post workout for years because that’s what I always thought it was for.

I shortly figured out that cinnamon cookie batter sounded way better than freaking chicken or ground beef again! I ordered that shit real quick and I never went back. Level 1 and oats has been my go to lunch meal for over a year now. It tastes great, mixes with water and is super quick to drink.

Other ways it comes in handy is for busy mornings, I usually make eggs but when I am short on time or just not in the mood for those either I mix up a Level 1 shake and a piece of toast. I also make a smoothie every morning for my husband, I use ice cream sandwhich flavor and mix it with a Costco smoothie pack.

Protein can be used as a meal replacement, you do not have to be working out, it is made to help fill in the gaps where you are struggling and that is how I recommend it. If you have any more questions about Level 1 I would be happy to help!
