Some Hench Nutrition...

Since the start of the year I've made a conscious effort to get further on track with my nutrition. I've never eaten badly, but I took to buying not so great snacks when out and about as training ramped up and my appetite rocketed!

The guys from Hench Nutrition contacted me regarding their protein shakes and as ever, I was skeptical. Not about them, but my first reaction to protein shakes is "I'm lactose intolerant"...which counts out about 90% of products! They were kind enough to highlight the non whey options and also the whey options that could work for me! So I gave it a go! After all, I still eat chocolate and other products containing dairy which hasn't yet killed me! 

The first thing I popped open was their Vanilla & Honey Protein Porridge. Never have I had such a thick and creamy porridge! The serving size was amazing - it was REAL and kept me going till my mid morning snack (or beyond when needs be!)! I used soya milk and didn't add any sweetener as I found it sweet enough. 


My mid morning snack then became their Vanilla Crunch Protein Flapjack. It comes pre mixed with simple instructions! Two scoops, a little milk, a little honey, a little butter and voila! I also added cocoa nibs as I had them and didn't know what I could do with them! I found that the cocoa nibs tasted a lot sweeter after being roasted on the top of the flapjack! It takes about 3 minutes to mix it up, and then 15 minutes in the oven so I easily made them while preparing breakfast / packing my lunch for the day! 






Right here should be the obligatory bloggers finished product photo right?! Well, what happened is, I forgot to set the timer and left them in ten minutes too long! Luckily they were still edible but I wanna show my best side here, eh! lol 

What else was left to try?! The Hench Nutrition Soya Protein shake and their Protein Pancake Mix. 


I'll keep you posted on the protein shake as I haven't yet got round to that. The pancake mix was interesting though - it was easy to make - I made it into one (not so big) pancake. I wasn't too fond of the taste though - I could taste a lot of egg coming through. So I lathered it in banana and honey, which didn't do much for me - doesn't help that I'm not a huge fan of bananas anyway! I gave up in the end...I may give it another go when my tastebuds are less sensitive / I'm really really hungry cos you know how good everything tastes when you are properly hungry!
