Calling all fitness fans. How would you like to have pancakes and hot chocolate for breakfast whilst giving your body enough protein to rebuild and recover after your workout? You would? Well, read on and find out how.
Bodybuilding Warehouse, one of the UK’s largest sports nutrition suppliers, has announced its new ‘Breakfast Menu’ of protein sports supplements. The products are part of their Premium Protein Range, which includes Protein Pancakes and Protein Hot Chocolate. I was lucky to try them out and see what all the excitement is about.
The pancakes contain 22g of protein and 19g of low GI slow burning carbohydrates per serving which can reduce the need to snack. They are available in flavours including banana caramel, chocolate orange and lemon zest.
I had the banana caramel flavour which was delicious. The pancakes themselves were super easy to make – no fuss or messing around with flour and eggs is necessary with these guys. Ideal when you need to be out the door in a hurry.
The hot chocolate is a healthy alternative to regular hot chocolate. It comes in a selection of flavours including rich chocolate, mint chocolate and caramel chocolate. Every serving provides 16 grams of high-quality pure whey protein.
I opted for caramel chocolate – to complement my pancake. I often find that nothing except homemade hot chocolate does the job, but I was pleasantly surprised at the pleasant taste and consistency of my protein cuppa.
The range also includes Protein Coffee, which is made with coffee (of course) and 100% instant whey protein concentrate. It comes in three flavours; caramel macchiato, mochaccino and cappuccino. Each serving provides 17 grams of high-quality protein, 90mg of naturally occurring coffee and 84 calories.
These are great options if you are trying to cut down on your carbs at breakfast. We all know how easy it is to just grab some toast or a croissant, even, when we are in a hurry. Well, now we all know that there is a healthy alternative, which is just as quick and very affordable. And this range is not just for bodybuilders. It’s for anyone who likes pancakes, hot chocolate, coffee and taking care of themselves. And who doesn’t like at least one of those?
