Champion Nutrition

Many thanks to Mary for hooking me up with a few samples from the company for this review.  Champion Nutrition has a great list of beneficial products for for weight lifters and people looking to gain muscle mass.  What you may not realize, is that you don’t need to be a body builder to partake in these delicious shakes and blends!  They are great for refueling after a tough workout or tiding you over after a long run until meal time. 

Personally, I’ve found the Pure Whey powders perfect for whipping into my oatmeal, or blending into protein ice cream!  My favorite was the Chocolate.  Then again, I only got to try the Strawberry, in addition.  The Strawberry was not as strong as I prefer flavors to be.  I was pleasantly surprised though, that the color was not totally artificial.  It was barely even pink when blended.  Both mixed easily into whatever I had on hand, mainly water or Almond Breeze, but the Strawberry had kind of a chalky aftertaste that I didn’t care for.

The stats for the Pure Whey are pretty fantastic.  26g of protein for just 125 calories!  And I love the fact that there isn’t much sugar in these powders, unlike a lot of protein blends!  Therefore, the carb content is low as well!  They’re also high in the essential amino acids and rich in glutamine peptides which promote muscle growth!  Pure Whey comes in flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Banana Scream, Cocoa-Mochaccino, Cookies & Cream, & Tropical Sunrise.  I think the last four sound totally dreamy!

Ultramet RTD, 12 Shakes

They also make Ready To Drink Ultra Met, which I was also sent to review.  This stuff is creamy, rich, and perfect for on the go folks who need a quick pick-me-up.  It reminded me of Yoo hoo, actually, except with a more luscious consistency.  It was seriously like a milkshake!  The nutritional stats are MUCH better than that of a milkshake, however.  You can get it in
