Giveaway Pack of Soy Protein Sports Nutrition Items 

I have always been an extremely active person. When I was 5 my mother took me into the doctor with yet another sprained ankle and she decided putting me in dance or gymnastics classes would be a good idea. My mother chose to put me into ballet and swimming lessons. From that point forward I had some sort of physical activity every night of the week. When I was in my 20's I started running road races and marathons. I loved them and completed a number of marathons with great times. Then I had kids and I had to cut back on the amount of time I can spend outside of the house. Now I still work out at least an hour a day, I just tend to do it on my treadmill and with free weights at home. I also do yoga (and have since I lived in Seattle) and meditate to round out my overall health.

When I found out I had Celiac Disease and had to go gluten free I struggled with finding nutrition bars and snacks that fit my needs. While I love making everything from scratch after a 45 minute run on the treadmill I sometimes I just want something quick and easy. Given my lifestyle I was intrigued when I was sent a the following items from DuPoint Nutrion and Health: Eat-Smart Bar, Nogii Protein Bar and NOW Energy Bar, as well as a “Powered by Soy Protein” Traveler Exercise Kit.

Here is a little background on Soy Protein:

• Soy protein is a high‐quality, plant‐based protein derived from soybeans

• Soy protein preserves lean body mass, promotes fat loss, and boosts satiety during weight loss

• A blend of proteins – soy, whey and casein, prolongs muscle building after exercise and increases recovery compared to whey alone

• Soy protein promotes muscle growth and development

• Soy protein is equivalent to whey protein for building muscle when consumed as part of a resistance training program

• Soy protein has the ability to displace fat and sugar calories
Soy Protein Bars

The NOW Energy Bars and the Nogii Protein Bar are both gluten free. The Nogii bars that I tried were the High Protein Chocolate Coconut Bar and the Paleo Nuts About Berries Bar. I love that the bars are gluten free since I have to eat gluten free products in my diet. The Chocolate Coconut bar was delicious, I would definitely look for it at the store! It is also high in protein with 17 grams per bar.

  3. I used to be a member of the gym for years when I lived in Florida, and I loved going. Since we've moved up north I run on the treadmill the days hubby's not home (he's off Sunday and one rotating day each week).

  4. My daughter is into the soy products, me not so much. I do work out everyday though. Being military I have no choice but I plan on doing a bit more next year and get into better shape.
