Gotein Review and my very first GIVEAWAY

I am super pumped that I was recently contacted by Anna about doing a review of Gotein!! Of course I said YES!
I have read a quite a few bloggers reviews of Gotein and I was very excited to have been asked to do one of my own. I waited a while to do the review because I just didn't have that many followers of my blog at the time! 

Gotein-Protein to Go is a nifty little packet of powdered protein that makes it very easy to refuel on the go! It comes in three flavors--vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. It can easily be mixed into a 12oz water bottle to make a healthy, filling shake!

From their website:

Gotein™ Protein to Go, helps refuel the body, and improves lean muscle mass while burning fat*. Perfect for the sports minded person that needs to perform at their best while exercising or playing a high energy sport.* Drink approximately 1/3 of a 16.9 fl. oz water. Add complete packet of Gotein™ to your water bottle, swirl and shake well until completely dissolved and enjoy a tasty, low carb shake!
Best to use between 20 to 30 minutes before and after exercise or active sport. Can also be used 30 to 45 minutes before meals to help curb your hunger.
Please excuse the sweatyness and nastiness-this was right after a 7 miler!
 I tried the Vanilla Gotein after a hot and steamy 16 mile training run. I mixed a packet of the vanilla powder with 12 oz of water. I was shocked at how much it DIDN'T taste like your average chalky shake. It was smooth and creamy! I was able to get the vitamins and minerals I needed after a long run and enjoy how it tasted...a definite first for me!
I mixed the strawberry packet in with a morning smoothie after a 7 mile mid-week run. I added to the powder almond milk, flaxseed, spinach, fresh strawberries, greek yogurt, and agave syrup. It was good!!! It almost disguised that you were even drinking a protein shake! 

I also tried the chocolate after a 13 mile training run and I am not a big fan of things that are chocolate flavored, but I liked this one too!!

By far my favorite flavor was vanilla but that is not shocking because I always go for vanilla!

You can purchase GOTEIN online HERE!  The only downside--it is a little pricey! But, if convenience means something to you, then it is totally worth it!
