In my opinion, a protein shake is a perfect snack. It's so convenient and it's an especially good choice if you're the type of runner who does not stomach solid food well immediately after a run. Plus, a recovery shake will also help you rehydrate while also feeding your muscles!
Naturally, I was thrilled to get the opportunity to review Core Power - a high-protein muscle recovery drink that is the official protein drink of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. The shakes are made from fresh, low-fat, lactose-free milk and real honey.
Core Power sent me a few shakes to try: Vanilla, Chocolate and Banana. All three were delicious - none of that chalky, chemical-like taste that plagues some recovery shakes!
I really love how easy it is to pack one of these shakes into my gym bag and then having it ready to go after my workout. All I had to do was open the bottle and voila - nutrition within the optimal post-run recovery window.
Enjoying a Core Power shake after last weekend's long run!
So here's the fun part: Core Power is offering one Eat. Host. Run. Style. reader a Fit Kit to help them recover right and achieve their fitness goals this year. The Fit Kit contains Core Power shakes, a gym bag, fitness ball, water bottle, yoga mat and towel.
