• Change Them Up
  • Suggested Visual: 2 protein powder scoops sitting next to each other like this

 http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-whey-protein-powder-two-scoops-image25068141  Copy:  Change up what proteins you use depending on what consistency you are going for in cooking. While Brown Rice Protein is a higher quality protein it can be grittier so blend 75:25 or 50:50  rice with pea protein to make the dish smoother and creamier.

  • Mix Like a Sandwich

Visual: our video http://www.pinterest.com/pin/18155204720293705/  Copy: When stirring up protein powder with a liquid such as water, set it up like a sandwich.  Pour the water in first, then the powder, then more water.  This will prevent the powder from sticking to the sides and aids quicker mixing.

  • Mix with a Fork First
  • Visual Suggestion:  

Copy:  A fork will mix better than a spoon, like a whisk.  After blended, then you can use a spoon to help scrape any powder off the bottom of the glass.

Mix protein into everyday items on your shelf such as oatmeal, salad dressing and pasta sauce.
