While there are certainly things about social media we don't love (Facebook ranters and oversharers, to name some of the worst), we gotta admit that we adore how it gives us a glimpse into the world of our favorite celebs. We know what they’re wearing, what they’re doing, who they’re hanging out with, and even what they’re eating in real time.
Khloé Kardashian, who recently lost 40 pounds, is just one of the many celebs who is super-active on social media. As she’s been dropping the pounds one by one, she’s been sharing her bad-ass fitness routines and some of her favorite meals and high protein snacks with her Instagram followers. (Lucky us!) Most recently, she posted a snap of herself sipping her favorite protein shake at her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson’s, basketball game. (He’s a center for the Cleveland Cavaliers.)
“Watching my baby play and sipping on my favorite Protein World [powder]. I take this meal replacement Slender Blend wherever I go!” the 32-year old captioned the post.
The powder comes in four different flavors: vanilla, strawberry, banana, chocolate, and “naked,” which is essentially a catchy name for the brand’s flavorless blend. They have whey-based varieties as well as a vegan blend made with pea protein, which is the version we believe lactose-free Khloé sips. Itching to get your hands on some? Nab a container for $48 online at ProteinWorld.com to start trimming down à la Khloé K! A 40-gram serving mixed with water packs 140 – 150 calories, 1 gram of sugar, 1.5 grams of fiber, and 24 – 30 grams of satiating protein. It also provides loads of nutrients like vitamins A, E, and B12, as well as iron and biotin, a nutrient that can help your hair stay shiny and healthy.
<strong>Did You Know!?</strong>
Protein World’s Slender Blend powders are sweetened with sucralose. Sucrose molecules activate the body’s sweetness-sensors, but since the body can’t break it down, it has "zero" calories. While this isn’t ideal in things like soda, this isn’t much of a problem when used to sweeten nutrient-dense things like protein shakes, which can provide your body with satiety signals. The bottom line: While sucralose isn’t the best sweetener option out there, it’s not the worst thing that it’s used to sweeten this celeb-approved protein powder.
