I only live about 30-45 minutes away from some of the most world renown beaches in the United States. Now, you may remember that I didn’t grow up a Florida gal. I was raised right outside of Boston, so I know about those long Winters and the few months of warmth. Even though I am insanely over scheduled, whenever I get a free second, I try to get to the beach for some relaxation. My parents currently reside in Sarasota, so when we head down there for a visit, we make it a priority to try to get to the beach at some point. Siesta Key is one of my absolute favorites. The only thing I will tell you is get there early. The beach parking after 10am is a war zone. I am not kidding. Since I try to avoid the damaging effects of the sun and I try to fit in workouts whenever I can. I took this last opportunity for a quick beach workout before we headed back up to Tampa!
When I was done with the workout, I packed one of the 1915 Bolthouse Farms™ Organic Protein beverages with me. Protein after a workout is one of my daily staples. What I really like about this product is it is dairy free. I don’t drink regular cows milk and I actually switch all my patients over to almond milk whenever they have any cholesterol issues. The 1915 protein drinks are made with almond milk, are vegan and the protein comes from pea protein. I am always on the lookout for how protein is added to any product because the majority of time it is laden with cholesterol. This is seriously my holy grail drink. It contains 12 grams of plant-based proteins and it meets all my strict requirements when it comes to protein supplementation. The 1915 are non-GMO, organic, non-dairy, vegan, and gluten-free ingredients. See I told you it meets everything!
This particular product comes in three flavors, chocolate, vanilla and coffee. I like the coffee during my work days and tend to save the vanilla and chocolate for post workout drinks. I’ve even mixed the vanilla one with some ice, spinach, and a little bit of almond butter….smoothie heaven. The best part is they actually keep me full until lunch time which is not an easy task for most protein drinks.
I definitely encourage you to check out this new line and 1915 is giving one lucky reader a box to try! The giveaway starts June 15th and runs through the 30th. You must be over 18 and in the US. Good luck!
