Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)

Product Review: Paleo Pro Protein Powder Ancient Cacao and Aztec Vanilla

Type of Product: 
Supplements
Summary
Rating: 
4
Pros: 
  • Nice flavor
  • No sugar
  • No soy
  • No dairy
  • Convenient packaging
Cons: 
  • Difficult to fully mix/dissolve cold or hot

Paleo Pro Protein Powder Ancient CacaoI love the short ingredient list and the lack of soy and sugar. It's a great option for people who have difficulties digesting whey or who are trying to avoid dairy products for whatever reason. An added bonus is the use of sunflower lecithin.

I've consumed 1lb of both the Ancient Cacao and Aztec Vanilla and both have a mild but natural flavor, no off-tastes or weird aftertastes.

Unfortunately this otherwise wonderful beef and egg based protein powder does require quite a bit of effort to blend, and even so, sometimes you will still get a crunchy bite or two in a given shake.

When mixed with warm or hot water (I sometimes like to make protein versions of hot chocolate, and wanted to see if this helped the mixability issue) some of it mixed well, but some of it also seemed to "cook up" a bit. I'd recommend using collagen peptides for hot chocolate based protein drinks instead (recipe coming soon... though it's very simple, and you can add the peptides to any favorite hot beverage).

Gloriously short ingredient list: Grass fed beef protein, egg protein, natural flavoring, stevia leaf extract, sunflower lecithin
