5 Easy Ways To Incorporate Protein Shakes Into Your Daily Routine


Protein is not just for bulking and body building. It is the key ingredient for a healthy, energetic and resilient lifestyle. 

Pre-mixed protein shakes (hint, hint - like ours) are a really quick and easy, not to mention tasty, way to ensure you're getting a decent protein fix every day. However, if you're new to the world of protein shakes, it may be hard to know how best to incorporate them into your day-to-day in a way that is effective, healthy and convenient.

Well, fret no longer. This helpful guide is designed to offer you 5 options for ideal times to grab a shake. The secret to establishing new habits that stick is to fit them in around your existing patterns. Pick the option below that works best for your usual routine and you'll be fuelled and ready in no-time! 

Shaking up your routine

1. Breakfast

Breakfast time is one of the easiest moments in the day to grab a protein shake. Partner with toast, cereal or fruit for an energy-boosting drink that will keep you feeling fuller for longer. Or, if you're not one for breakfast (don't worry, we're not here to judge), a protein shake is better than nothing for getting your get-up-and-go up-and-going. If you're really wanting to push the boat out, perhaps on weekends when you have more time, why not try out our Strawberry and Blueberry Baked Oats for a more inventive way to consume your daily protein shake?

2. On-the-go

The beauty of a pre-mixed protein shake is that you can just grab a bottle from your fridge or the shelves of your local supermarket and drink it on-the-go. On your commute, while you walk, or at the morning school gates... your in-between moments are often a really effective time to add a protein shake into your day.

3. Lunchtime

Instead of opting for a fizzy pop, sugary juice or caffeine-frenzied energy drink as part of your lunchtime supermarket meal deal, you might find it to be an easy swap to choose a protein shake instead. Over lunch, when you're ready for a refuel, is an ideal time to give your body a protein pick-me-up. Added bonus: opting for a tasty chocolate or salted caramel flavour shake is a tasty lunchtime treat!

4. Fighting the mid-afternoon slump 

Lots of people typically turn to coffee or energy drinks as they hit that 3pm brick wall. If this feels familiar, why not consider subbing in a mid-afternoon protein shake instead? Less sugary and without the inevitable caffeine crash later down the line, grabbing a shake for slow-release, longer lasting energy will provide the revitalisation you need without the drawbacks.

5. After Activity

Protein is not just a building block for your day, it can also be used to help your body bounce back after exercise or activity. Our Recovery Protein Shake is specially designed to build you back up when a day has worn you down. Containing the optimal 3:1 Carb:Protein ratio to rebuild, reenergise and rehydrate. Ideal whether it’s after a run, sports match or a trip to the gym... or simply in the aftermath of a long day's grind.
