This was a very challenging post for me to write, because I have a confession to make: I, Juliet Burgh, loooooove protein powder! I love it so much that I use it in the morning for breakfast, after my workouts and sometimes even for dessert. It’s been a staple in my diet since my weight-lifting career started back when I was 18 years old.
Over the years I have switched to many different kinds of protein, shifting to more natural supplements coming from plants or grass-fed animals, and I truly believed that I was consuming what was good for my health. That is, until my recent rude awakening.
