By now, you’ve probably seen various posts on our Facebook and Instagram where we talk about the 6-week challenge at Pro-TF. One of the things that we keep getting asked about is protein powder.
One of the trainers at Pro-TF actually recommended this San Diego company to us and we’ve been very happy with them so far. While placing our first order, we found out that we can go pick it up in person at the warehouse within a day. The shipping is not very expensive but the day we ordered it we had also run out of protein powder so picking it up in Vista, CA the next day was perfect!
We also found out that when ordering more than 7 pounds of one blend we get 5% off the total automatically. Then we also got promo code JOHN316 from a friend, which gave us an additional 5% off. Combined with free shipping, not bad for our first time ordering!
One of the cool features of the True Nutrition website is that you can build your own custom blends. For us, we generally use the pea protein isolate so that part is easy for us. The part that’s harder is choosing just one flavor! There are around 20 different flavors to choose from. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup is our favorite so far!
One piece of advice: if you add “boosts,” like we did, changing the “flavor intensity to “heavy” is well worth it because it masks the flavors that are added from the boosts. So far, we’ve only added the “Multi-Vitamin & Mineral” boost as well as the “Electrolytes” boost. This is because they have so many things in them that we like and need, especially Magnesium and Potassium. What’s really cool too about the custom blend builder is that it gives you the Nutrition Facts as you build. And then it also gets printed on the label of the container.
Last but not least, you can also give your special blend a name. So the next time you order, you can just choose the blend you already know and love. On the other hand, maybe you still want to experiment before you name your perfected creation… don’t worry: your custom blend will be named “My Custom Blend #XXXXXXXX” and assigned a unique number (in place of the Xs) by default.
