This week I’m diving into my favorite protein brand, Orgain, and I have some exciting news. I’ve been using Orgain protein powders for a little over seven years and since then, I have fallen in love with even more of their products. Now, after years of using their products and recommending them to all my friends and family I get to call myself an official ambassador! 

I discovered to Orgain thanks to  my dad, when he bought their chocolate whey protein. At that time in our lives, we were forced to drastically change our eating habits in the hope of combating my mother’s cancer diagnosis. Especially closer to the end when she didn’t really want to eat anything. Protein & nutrition shakes became her main source of many nutrients. Orgain was one of the cleanest protein powders on the market at the time and the first one we tried to not leave a chalky taste in our mouths. Orgain was protein my whole family could agree on.

Fast forward years later, I still venture out and try other brands. Some I enjoy more than others but I always make my way back to Orgain. I initially started with their whey based protein, but sometime around my 24th birthday I realized that I had developed a lactose sensitivity and consuming large amounts of whey protein was leaving my stomach in knots. Lucky for me, Orgain also make a plant based powder and to this day, I consume a shake about 5 times a week. Because of my work schedule, I’m up early, between four and five AM, most days and I cannot eat that early, but also I will feel like crap if nothing is in my stomach when my body finally realizes it can’t go back to sleep. Give me my shaker bottle, 8 ounces of almond milk, a scoop of powder and I’m set for a couple hours. I can still handle the whey protein in the ready-made shakes but I only use those once every 2 -3 weeks, mainly when I run out of almond milk.

Ideally, I try to hit my protein goals with actual food, which because of my lifestyle, is really hard for me. I am constantly hungry but I can never eat a lot at once. So I could have a meal in front of me that meets all the macros I need for that time of day, but I hardly ever finish it until later which in turn throws off my day because when I eat again, I’ll just be eating the macros I should of had in the first place. I eat maybe two complete meals a day and the rest of the time I’m making smoothies to make up on what I missed. Being able to sneak in protein with those smoothies is the best, especially when I can turn it into a treat because of the flavoring of the powder. Nothing like being able to have chocolate be your meal. 

They have several varieties of ready-made shakes, various flavors, different formulation, and I am always excited for what products they will come out with next. I am a creature of habit, so while I would love nothing more than to “taste the rainbow”, I normally just purchase the chocolate and vanilla variations. But I have tried the different base variations.

Another perk of my ambassadorship is that I get 30% off and free shipping on all my purchases from their website. So now I have absolutely no reason to not try all the other flavors I’ve been wanting to but just couldn’t find in a store near me. I’ve been eyeing that Iced Matcha Latte and their just made a strawberry superfood version. (Again, I’ll keep you posted)

BEST PART? You can use that same code I use to get 30% off and free shipping!!! Anytime you shop Orgain, just use the code “ambassador444” and you’ll be set. 

If you place an order, please let me know what you got. Might encourage me to be more adventurous lol.
