This is a review post sponsored by Naked Nutrition. All opinions are my own.
As if my grocery budget isn’t enough to make me go broke, if I didn’t somehow ration all the meat my men crave, I’d go even broker.
Indeed, the more active my kids, the more protein they crave. Currently, my two high schoolers are playing both basketball and soccer (yes, at the same time because why stay home when you can go crazy). They also lift weights and run on the days they don’t have practice or games. A daily question at our house, between meals, is, “Mom, is there any meat I can eat right now?”
We have fun coming up with great protein options that are meatless (eggs, nuts, beans) so when Naked Nutrition emailed and asked if they could send some of their protein-packed cereals, I jumped through the screen and yelled, “Oh, yes please!”
Their cereals are much different than what we typically expect. Namely, their ingredient lists are tiny. Three cheers for this, right?! Check this out:
Protein Cereal: Grass-Fed Whey Protein and Organic Tapioca Starch
Apple Cinnamon Protein Cereal: Grass-Fed Whey Protein, Organic Tapioca Starch, Organic Brown Sugar, Organic Dried Apple Pieces, and Cinnamon
Admittedly, we all like the Apple Cinnamon Protein Cereal better. We found the regular Protein Cereal they offer to be quite plain. Yet, we love that it’s still a great option for a quick protein snack on the run.
Also, we found that while we don’t love eating the Protein Cereal by itself, it’s great on top of yogurt or better yet? Stirred into Fat Bombs or Homemade Chewy Granola Bars. The cereal gives these snacks a great crunch! And of course, we love that it fills them even more good protein!
As for the Apple Cinnamon Protein Cereal, we eat it as is and love that it packs such a great punch of protein. It’s especially tasty this fall since we’re loving all things apple and cinnamon anyway.
While the price is a bit steep, it is reasonable for the ingredients included. And hey, I’m the one buying entire cows to fill my freezer, so to enjoy this Protein Cereal on occasion is great.
A huge thanks to Naked Nutrition for sending us their wholesome, protein-packed cereals to try! Thank you for making a product that contains grass-fed whey protein! This is hard to come by and much appreciated. My hungry household of athletes is grateful. :)
