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.

15 favorite plant-based and protein-packed recipes include:

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)

3. Spicy Baked Black Beans with Mixed Vegetables (vegan, GF)

    I’ve never tried this brand before although I pass by it at Trader Joes. I’ve always been tempted to buy one but for some reason I don’t! I’m like you where I don’t eat any type of meat…I need s’more protein in my life!

    I eat Greek yogurt every morning with blueberries and some flax in the bowl. When I am having a day full of exercise, I have peanut butter to give me a boost. This Pure Protein sounds very good, would love to try it!! Thank you!

    My favorite bars are the good greens bars (http://www.goodgreens.com/) they have the best consistency and flavored, I haven’t tried pure protein yet.

    Clif makes a new mini bar sampler box. Perfect for travel & on the go. Always a staple here

    I like to add peanut butter! Lots and lots of it!

  17. #
    Kristen — February 17, 2013 at 5:05 am

    I really enjoy having a protein shake for breakfast. Nothing tastes better after a sweaty workout. I have just started using an egg white protein powder (strawberry flavored) and really like the consistency and the taste of it.

    Brenda — February 17, 2013 at 5:07 am

    Peanut Butter is by far my favorite protein. I make sandwiches with it, add it to smoothies, dollop it on oatmeal, dip fruit in it, just eat it by the spoonful. I could keep going!

  19. #
    Nikki — February 17, 2013 at 5:27 am

    Peanut butter on almost any whole grain.

    Sarah — February 17, 2013 at 5:39 am

    I love eating thick Greek yogurt for its high protein content.

  21. #
    Nisha — February 17, 2013 at 5:46 am

    My favorite way to add protein into my diet is with greek yogurt and lentils – they are great additions to a fruit or vegetable based snack, respectively. AND I just discovered dried lentil trail mix this year which is DELICIOUS. But sometimes when I’m in a hurry or want to keep working without taking time for a meal involving utensils, PureProtein products are great!

  22. #
    Lia Simpson — February 17, 2013 at 5:54 am

    I add Greek yogurt into dips, dressings, as a condiment, etc.

  23. #
    roselyn page — February 17, 2013 at 6:24 am

    My fave way to incorporate protein is a snack with protein powder and peanut mixed into a pudding and I freeze it for 30 minutes, like a Reeses!! I have used Pure Protein and have always been very pleased with their products.

  24. #
    Nicole @ Curly Mommy — February 17, 2013 at 7:09 am

    My favorite protein snack is greek yogurt! Muller and Chobani are my favorite brands!

    I love these protein bars from Alton Brown, they are so good.

    Amanda — February 17, 2013 at 7:19 am

    I’m always partial to chicken and cheeses for my protein, but that doesn’t help me in the mornings … this looks like it would be a great AM boost!

    Diane @ Vintage Zest — February 17, 2013 at 7:41 am

    In a morning fruit shake, plain and simple. :)

    Some of my favorite protein powder is this vegan goodness from Green Foods: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/green-foods-true-vitality-plant-protein-shake-dha-chocolate-25-2-oz-pwdr

    Jill Hartley — February 17, 2013 at 8:15 am

    I try to make a chicken or steak salad. It seems to keep me more full and keeps a salad from being boring.

    Jenny — February 17, 2013 at 8:42 am

    I like using soy nuts in my salad

  31. #
    Nala S — February 17, 2013 at 9:08 am

    I love to eat peanuts and all sorts of other nuts as a protein supplement. I also discovered that Kale contains alot of protein so I try to eat as much of that as I can.

    Love Pure Protein shakes! I too have a hard time getting my protein in and the shakes sure hel!

  35. #
    seeley gutierrez — February 17, 2013 at 11:58 am

    As a vegetarian, I’m always looking for creative ways to add protein. I add almonds and walnuts to almost everything and hummus and carrots is one of my favorite snacks. Nut butter sandwiches are a main stay, and I’m starting to use almond milk more when baking and with oatmeal.

  36. #
    stacey h — February 17, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    raw cashews & almonds

    Chocolate Coated Runner — February 17, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I add chicken and beans to my salad, have lots of protein shakes, protein bars, steak salads, and more!

  38. #
    Karen — February 17, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    My favorite way to add protein is to use quinoa flakes whenever they fit in…in granola, in smoothies, in mashed potatoes!

  39. #
    Danielle — February 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    I love the Pure Protein products for the low sugar. I add protein to my diet with nut and seed butters and I love the Vega protein shakes with lunch.

  40. #
    Skylar S — February 17, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I’m really cutting out carbs, so I’ve been eating a lot of eggs, which have a good amount of protein in them.

  41. #
    Ttrockwood — February 17, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    I usually buy “amazing meal vanilla chai” by the amazing grass company, or vega’s vanilla almondilla. I usually just use in my smoothies or oatmeal

  42. #
    Elizabeth — February 17, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    I’m a big fan of making fast tofu curries and egg sandwiches- but I also buy these same pure protein bars often!

  43. #
    Julie F — February 17, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Protein smoothies! My favorite, using vanilla protein powder & bananas & then sometimes whatever else I have around.

    Anna — February 17, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    I eat an egg every day, plus nonfat milk with every meal.

  47. #
    Mia — February 17, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    I recently started using Vega One, and so far have only tried the vanilla chai, but am curious about the chocolate flavor and Vega Sport. I usually add it to my smoothie or oatmeal in the morning, and to raw fruit and nut bites.
