Protein Power! [Review]

Weight loss and eating healthy while constantly on the go can be a difficult task.
For me personally, I need something I can throw in my bag that will hold me for a few hours, at any given time.

 You never know when a train is going to be delayed or break down.
Well in my case it's usually 1-2x a week.
Good old LIRR.
I digress.

When I was given the opportunity to partner up with Special K to try their new protein line I didn't hesitate.
I have been a big fan of the cereal line for years, my favorites are red berries and chocolatey delight,
[ which I am eating as I type..multitasking at its finest]
but I had yet to get my hungry hands on their newest creation which has 10 grams of protein per serving!

They also sent 4 protein bars and 3 shakes.

However, I was too busy eating them and only photographed one.
The verdict?
Every single one is delicious!
My favorite was the chocolate & peanut butter...no surprise there.

I brought the bars with me to the gym for my 5 am workouts, that way I could get in a quick breakfast on my drive home.
To my surprise they held me for over 4 hours.
The shakes were the last things I tried.
I decided to have "cocktail hour" this past Sunday with my mom and sister, that way I could get their opinions on them as well.
My favorite was the strawberry banana, my sister loved the chocolate, and my mom liked all three.
6 thumbs up from the JKS family!

These shakes can be thrown into a blender with ice and additions (like PB2 or fruit) if you wanted, but they taste perfect on their own, which is ideal for those on-the-go meals.

Have you tried any of the protein packed Special K products?
