'Its About Time' Whey Protein giveaway!

I received samples from About Time Protein and they asked me to host a 2lb tub whey protein giveaway for you all! So a benefit or me and you!
The protein contains 25g protein, 0 sugar, 0g fat, 103 cals per serving. It's sweetened with stevia which is an all natural sweetener. Only 4 ingredients so no crap in their tubs!
There are 11 flavors which is hard to choose just one single flavor-lots of yummy ones like peanut butter and cake!!!
So to win of course there are some things you must do:
1. Follow my blog!
2. Tell me how you love to have your protein; Whether it be in a shake, something baked (healthy and clean only here!), etc. Leave the recipe in a comment please! I love new ideas!

Leave a separate comment for each telling me you followed and/or your best protein creation!
Check out their page and see what flavor you would like to try. They have other products as well like prebottled protein drinks.

Giveaway ends Sunday a.m. Winner will be chosen on Sunday! Goodluck!

  8. I love protein powder in so many different ways...I mix it with no sugar added applesauce as a topping for english muffins at breakfast, in a shake, and in microwave protein cakes. It's so versatile. I've been dying to try About Time's awesome flavors, I hope I win! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  9. Ok, so I love protein... A LOT! Shakes, pancakes, you name it. BUT protein brownies are the bomb! (best on leg day or chest day because of the carbs)

    1 scoop chocolate protein powder
    2 TBSP Hershey Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
    1/3 cup Stevia
    1/2 TBSP cinnamon
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4 cup Arrowhead Mills Organic Barley Flour
    4 oz sweet potato
    3 oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt
    4 egg whites

    And if your macros allow it (and you've got a sweet tooth), you can add 1 to 2 oz of dark chocolate. 80% cacao

    Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (my oven is a little wonky so it depends on yours)

    Let cool and dig in!

  13. This may sound weird, but I love using protein powder to make a "frosting". I usually do it as pre-workout, I'll take a scoop of protein powder, 2 tbs. pb2 (1 regular, 1 chocolate), and then about 2 or so tbs. of water and mix to make it thick like a spread then top two rice cakes! If I'm having it post-workout, I'll sometimes add a half a banana as well :)

  14. I usually just have my protein powder in a shake after my workouts. I have found some recipes on blogs for protein cakes that are really good too! Like you, I'm always looking for new ideas!

  16. Protein waffles!!!! 1 scoop protein, 1/4c egg whites, 1 tbsp flax, stevia, little almond milk if the batter is too thick, then pour it in the waffle iron and wait for delicious magic to happen :)
    Protein oats are also a favorite, just adding a scoop to my oats for a protein punch.
    I tried about time not too long ago by making protein pancakes, they were SO good! I'd love to win this!!

  17. I've been wanting to try this brand! I put protein powder in everything - my top 2 are my microwave protein cake and a carrot cake batter shake. Or blended with cottage cheese and flavoring to make "icing" for an apple cupcake. So many choices!!!

  18. I love protein powder mixed with a little pb2 after a workout. I also make oatmeal cookies. I don't really measure but:
    gf rolled oats (approx 1 cup)
    2 scoops vanilla protein powder
    baking raisins to taste
    cinnamon
    unsweetened applesauce (to bind together)
    one egg white.

    Mix in a bowl and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. I don't normally make more than a few at a time because I will keep eating them! Lately I've had to triple the batch because my family can't get enough. =)

  20. I use protein powder in so many ways... mixed with yogurt to give it more punch, and also in baking, pancakes, smoothies, popsicles... one of my faves currently is in a 'cerea' I like to cook for breakfast:

    1 T ground flax
    1/2 scoop whey protein powder
    1/2 mashed banana
    1/2 cup egg whites
    cinnamon
    2 T Almond Breeze
    Mash it altogether and cook in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently. It will be cooked in a few minutes. The egg whites will plump as they cook and you have a nice 'unoatmeal' cereal.

    I like it with yogurt and fresh fruit.

  23. I typically just use protein powder in smoothies, but since I'm transitioning into a more vegetarian diet I am working to incorporate it into other things.

    For the time being, my favorite recipe is 1 banana, 1 apple (pink lady or fuji), a few strawberries, 2-3 cups of spinach, a splash of coconut milk or coconut water, and a scoop or two of protein powder. The fruit changes depending on what it is in season or what is about to go bad in my fridge :-) I love it after my long runs or my strength training sessions.

  25. My two favorite ways to use protein powder is mixed in with my oatmeal and in green smoothies. The protein tends to keep me full much longer when it's added in.

  26. I love protein frosting!! Make it thick or thin... It never fails to satisfy. Now if I could get the baked goods flavor down it might be a winning combo!! LOL

  27. I hate protein powder. I hate it with a passion normally reserved for racists and loaning money to family but I also hate meat and my nutritionist told me that I needed to start consuming one or the other. I have a strong dislike for chocolate and peanut butter unless it's in the form of a Reese's (which is oddly enough not laced with protein) and can't stand Strawberries so I bought this unflavored. When made with just water, it's tasteless. Completely, utterly, blessedly tasteless. Read More
