Pure Protein Prize-Pack Giveaway

This year Pure Protein® is launching some fantastic new products including items that are baked, gluten-­free, fiber-rich and in mini-sizes, so there are plenty of options to fuel you through 2013.

Pure Protein® products are low in sugar, high in protein, and have the kind of taste that makes me look forward to eating them.


Whether you choose a convenient Pure Protein® bar or add Pure Protein® Whey Protein power to your daily smoothie, you have plenty of options to hit your daily protein goals.

Pure Protein® bars provide the quality protein and great taste that is essential to a healthy, balanced diet and important for supporting lean muscle and an active lifestyle.


Protein plays a number of different roles in the body. It repairs body cells, builds and repairs muscles and bones, provides a source of energy, and controls many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.

Incorporating protein into my daily diet doesn’t always come easy. I don’t eat animal flesh. No meat, fish, chicken, and although I do bake with eggs, I never sit down to a plate eggs and the same can be said for milk. I bake with milk and cream, but don’t drink much milk.


That’s where protein supplements come in handy. Although protein from food sources is ideal, sometimes I need a boost and Pure Protein products are one way I can quickly and easily incorporate protein into my everyday lifestyle.

1. Orange Ginger Tempeh and Brown Rice Salad with Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette – (vegan, gluten free if GF tempeh is used)

2. Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu (vegan, GF)

    My favorite protein rich snack is cottage cheese! You can mix in savory or sweet toppings depending on your mood. I mix in cocoa powder and stevia a lot. May sound bizarre but I promise it is delicious!

    There is always room for more protein in my diet. I eat a lot of greek yogurt and protein shakes, but these would be a great addition.

    lately, my go-to protein-filled snack is pumpkin mixed with a little bit of greek yogurt and vanilla sun warrior protein powder. add a little cinnamon, and it is pumpkin pie pudding!

  11. Sue — February 16, 2013 at 6:26 am (#

    Tempeh is my favorite high protein food.

  12. Heather (Where's the Beach) — February 16, 2013 at 6:46 am (#

    I try to make sure I do get in protein with each meal and snack. I do try to go as plant-based as possible. But also use a rice protein powder that I found and love (also has spirulina in it)

  13. Cori — February 16, 2013 at 6:47 am (#

    Siggis Skyr is really high in protein, I eat it all the time

  14. olympia — February 16, 2013 at 7:15 am (#

    Boring, but cottage cheese (mixed with hot sauce and veggies), and greek yogurt do the trick for me. In terms of bars, I’ve become fond of the Fiber One line.

  15. Kadi — February 16, 2013 at 7:47 am (#

    Hummus. Lots and LOTS of hummus for protein.

  16. Denise McDowell — February 16, 2013 at 7:55 am (#

  24. Emily — February 16, 2013 at 9:36 am (#

    I definitely turn to various protein bars on a regular basis to make sure I’m getting an adequate amount of protein- plus they’re delicious! Since I don’t eat meat, I also rely on soy products, beans, quinoa, greek yogurt, etc. (:

  25. Emily — February 16, 2013 at 10:12 am (#

    I love the new Luna protein bars, but they’re a bit high in sugar. I’d love to try these.

  26. Melissa @ Kids in the Sink — February 16, 2013 at 10:26 am (#

    I like to get protein with beans and other plant based ways because I’m a vegetarian.

  27. Bev — February 16, 2013 at 10:41 am (#

    I rely on quinoa, lots of beans and lentils and soy products at home. When travelling, I always try to bring protein bars as “insurance”.

  28. Erica — February 16, 2013 at 12:24 pm (#

    YUM! Love their products. Their bars are delicious. Right now I like to put either protein powder or peanut flour in my oatmeal for extra protein.

  29. Whitney — February 16, 2013 at 1:47 pm (#

    I find ways to up my protein intake everyday — in the morning, I mix together 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 scoop of protein powder, 1/2 cup water, 1 egg white, and a half of a banana. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stir, and add skim milk and honey to taste! You end up with about 1/2 carbs, 1/2 protein in terms of nutrition. Delicious! I also make a killer Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake — Place 8 or so ice cubes, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 medium banana, 1-2 scoops protein powder, 2 tablespoons of PB2, and a tsp or so of vanilla extract in a blender and blend until smooth. Amazingggg, I promise!

    I am a big fan of New Zealand Whey!

  31. Margaret — February 16, 2013 at 2:11 pm (#

  32. Anie — February 16, 2013 at 3:10 pm (#

    Getting enough protein in my diet is something that I frequently struggle with. To try to remedy this, I have recently included protein shakes (including the delicious Pure Protein ones!) as one of my afternoon snacks. They are tasty and help me get through my afternoon college lectures – win, win :)

  33. Jeanne — February 16, 2013 at 3:13 pm (#

    My favorite way to get protein into my diet is a simple protein shake of just a frozen banana, almond milk, and vanilla whey. Tastes like dessert so I never get sick of it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. Lily — February 16, 2013 at 3:28 pm (#

    My fave way to incorporate proteins in my diet are nuts & tofu for vegetarian sources and shrimp/fish for non-vegetarian sources!

    Well actually the best way that i like to incorporate protein into mydiet is by boiling the whole egg,then peeling the shell off and eating the egg that way sprinkled with a little salt too. it may sound weird but it tastes good for me.
