EAS Goodies

Happy Friday! Are you as happy as I am that the weekend is upon us? Of course you are. What a silly question!

As you know, I received goodies from EAS recently, and I’ve finally had a chance to try them all. Here are the three types that I received.

All three tasted great. The chocolate ones reminded me of chocolate milk, yet I still think I preferred the strawberry.

The strawberry flavor I received is the EAS Myoplex Carb Control shake. The body recovers most effectively when a post-workout meal or snack contains both protein and carbohydrates. The shake gave me lots of protein, and the apple gave me the fibrous carbohydrates to keep me full and repair my muscles. Not to mention both pack very easily!

By the way, here are two articles (Road Runner Sports & Fitness Magazine) about carbs and protein for recovery.

The shake that was best for me, however, was the EAS Myoplex Nutrition Shake. This one has a screw cap that allows me to only have half at a time. Refueling within thirty minutes of your workout yields the best results, but I usually wait 1 hr and 45 minutes due to my shower time and commute to work. I can have half of this bottle right after my workout, seal it, and have the rest of it with oats or a piece of fruit when I get to the office.

Here’s the breakdown on my goodies:

As my regular readers know, I try to stick with “real” foods when possible, but I think these are great on-the-go helpers to keep me on track. If you have time, I recommend their website. I checked it out earlier and was pleased at the amount of helpful articles, product descriptions, and even demonstrated strength exercises.

Have you tried EAS products? Do you have a favorite go-to protein?

I feel that I should mention that I skipped yesterday’s workout, and I had a hunk of cake for snack. Wow. This has not been the best week for me!

Luckily, my blisters are healing really well, and I am going for a run today. Hopefully I’ll run myself right back on track with my workouts and eating. K, out the door now!

Have a great weekend! Check back tomorrow for a recipe and a workout!

  1. I like EAS vanilla drinks, but like you, I kinda like to stick to whole foods instead :) My go to protein powder after I workout is Dymatize ISO 100 vanilla whey isolate, it is SO good!!
    Have an awesome weekend buddy! Can’t wait to see the recipe!

  2. I used to use EAS products but the ingredients started to freak me out. I do agree, you need on the go options. I use bars a bit more for this (zing, lara, pure). I liked your chart too.

  3. Looks like some good products! Don’t get yourself down about the missed workout! You make healthy choices all week! Cut yourself some slack girl!!!! :)

  4. I drink Shakeology, which is a “pumped up” protein, so good! I sometimes have a protein bar at work if im in a rush, lately i’ve been having think thin or zone bars.

  5. I’ve never tried EAS. I don’t really do many protein shakes. I do like Think Thin bars and I like Greek yogurt of the protein bomb as well.

  6. I have never tried EAS. Not really a fan of protein shakes, they always taste chalky to me..

    Enjoy your run!

  7. My roommate drinks this brand and she loves it! I’m more of a plant-based protein powder kind of girl myself, but hey– it must be good if she keeps buying it

  8. I’ve never tried this before but I love protein powders. I would love to try this though!

  9. I like myoplex because my gym sells half orders after bodypump. I don’t think that counts. Unrelated:have you ever had Empire Ale? I am kind of obsessed.

  10. I do like EAS protein. They tend to have a good amount of protein for the calories. Although I dont’ think it’s my favorite in the taste category. About Time Birthday Cake powder is THE BEST! Unfortunately I can only find it online

  11. I’ve never had EAS, but my go to is Swanson’s Vanilla Whey. I love reclosable bottles for shakes or coconut water because something you just don’t want the whole thing!

  12. I’ve never tried EAS products but I’d like to sometime :)

  13. I’ve never tried EAS products before! This week has been a rough week for my workouts too.. I..uh.. haven’t gone at all. but in my defense I have a cold and can’t breathe.. and i’ve been super busy :)

  14. I tried EAS products back in college but haven’t had any since. I just use what my husband buys for out home at GNC. As long as its vanilla flavored I’m not too picky!!!

  15. I’ve never had the EAS stuff either. I might have to look into them.
