180 Nutrition protein powder IS HERE!!!!

You have all been asking about what natural coconut and chocolate protein powder I am using.

Okay, I have tried and tested it and I would like to introduce you to.....drum roll please....

180 Nutrition

As you all know, I have been searching for an all organic, raw and vegan protein powder and I am proud to say these guys tick all the boxes. Feel free to peruse their site for more info and grab their sample packs to trial. As it is different to all the other protein powders, there are no synthetic fillers, sugar or preservatives. All ingredients are natural, organic and raw ingredients. You can taste them all in your mouth! It feels different in your mouth, it's quite unique which sets them apart from the rest!

Hence when I opened the pack and saw the ingredients in their true form! I fell in love instantly. As I could find half of their ingredients in my pantry. And you know me how I like to experiment with food and recipes etc....this is what I came up with:

No bake 180 Nutrition cookie

2 cups of rolled oats
1 tsp sesame seeds
1tsp black chia seeds
1 tsp cacoa (for that extra chocolate taste)
1tsp coconut
drizzle of honey
1 scoop chocolate 180 Nutrition
Splash of milk

Mix all ingredients and add milk to combine until cookie dough consistency. Kids loved it!

My main driver when researching the protein powder, I wanted to make sure that their whey protein isolate was nothing but the highest of quality, nutrient dense, chemical free and of course home grown raw ingredients!!!

Anyhow, that's my view of the product. Click on their logo and read for yourself and let me know how you go!!! I am really happy with the 2 choices, as the chocolate gives me my sugar fix when I need it and the coconut one works beautifully with my green smoothies, as it's a neutral tasting powder.

Had to give it a miss today due to my neck. Went to see a GP and Chiropractor. I have a C1 pressing on my brain stem and need to get a CT scan in the morning. All good, drugged up so it's going to be a ok. Keep you posted with the results, I'm just tipping I have been a bit overloaded with some stuff going on here at home so it's just my body telling me to  s.l.o.w  i.t  d.o.w.n

Raspberry and strawberry porridge with black chia seeds and walnuts

Morning snack
Natural greek yogurt served with strawberries and cantaloupe

Chicken cheese sandwiches

We were all over the place this afternoon so I was grateful Adrian was around to help me with the kids, make lunch and drop me off at the doctors....when I got back home I was still very hungry and this protein drink really filled my tummy up!

Afternoon snack
Chocolate 180 Nutrition smoothie
1 banana
chia seeds

Vegetable bolognese with wholemeal pasta (I had it with zucchini juliennes)

Adrian took this photo however I took the one below as I set out all the ingredients for him and a list on how to cook a simple bolognese sauce.

Heat olive oil and sautee onion, garlic, carrots, capsicum (red bell pepper) and zucchini (corgette). Once cooked, add mince meat, herbs and cook until brown. Pour tomato passata sauce and 1 tin of crushed tomatoes. Add more passata if required with tomato paste and water. He did a great job!!!

Okay another early night for me, it was chaotic today! I hope you are all fantastic and thanks for all your comments here, Facebook and Instagram! You truly make my day!!!
