Protein Fluff And Stuff

I stumbled upon some stuff on StumbleUpon this week I want to share with you.

Protein Fluff

I’m always open to try new recipes and foods, so when I found the ProteinFluff site with recipes I decided to give the fluff a try. Besides, I already had all the ingredients at home. Making a protein fluff is very simple – you simply whip up skim milk, protein powder and frozen berries with a mixer until it builds in volume (it will).

I tried the blueberry fluff recipe but with mixed berries.  The fluff  was easy to make, velvety and surprisingly filling: I could only eat half of the portion in one sitting. It must be the air that is whipped into the fluff!

I can imagine replacing my daily smoothies with protein fluff on occasion.

Tribesports

I also stumbled upon a site named TribeSports. It has a Facebook-like interface and it reminds me of DailyFeats except it’s organized around exercise and fitness challenges. There seems to be a challenge for almost everything imaginable under the sun, like “Hold a 1 minute wall squat every day for 7 days”, “15 gym sessions in 30 days” or “4 Weeks Without Soda Drinks”.

Some don’t make much sense to me, like the doing a 5-minute plank. What would be the point of that, fitness-wise?

Anyway, you can take a challenge or create your own, and you can also join communites (tribes) that are organized around specific interests.

I joined the TribeSports and am now contemplating about taking the “Exercise Before 8am Every Day For 7 Days” challenge.  It would be a nice limited-time challenge and it might help counter my tendency to postpone my workouts.

Any takers?

  1. I’d never heard of protein fluff before Satu… As you know I’m on the protein shake plan at the moment and am too lazy to make it into a smoothie or get my blender out. I just mix the powder with milk and shake.

    And on the exercise front, when I finish at my current gym I may need to think about exercising early. At the moment I do classes at lunchtime but when I am no longer a gym member I’ll have to find something else to do.

    Good luck if you decide to go ahead with the before-8am exercise!

    The protein fluff is wild. I watched the video for mango fluff. I can’t wait to try it!

    You women amaze me with your healthy eating and exercising before 8am, etc.. all very disciplined – totally unlike me!
    By the way Satu, thanks for visiting my Blog. Not that you’ll learn anything from it except, perhaps, how to grow old disgracefully!

      Hi Gordon!

      I DO want to know how to grow old old disgracefully! 🙂

    Hi Satu! I did check out the blueberry fluff. I always think the blue of blueberries is so funny. You’d never imagine blueberries to get such a crazy color. It looks like a wonderful kitchen experiment for teen daughter and I to try.

    I found a grocery store that has 2 and 1/2 pounds of frozen blueberries for $7. That is an amazing deal and they tasted so perfect. My thumb and index finger were blacked after eating so many!

    I look to youtube.com for fun exercises to do. I used to think that I wanted to do handstands, but I’ve found out that I probably would like the handstand prep exercises better–not so scary but still really hard!

    It looks like you found an inspiring challenge site. I like challenges that I actually think I would accomplish and would be useful for my own life. Like you, the 5 minute plank challenge does not seem good. I would think that would cause a *lot* of stress on the shoulders, which would make me never attempt that. I like the challenge you chose. Morning exercise is awesome!

    Well, plank is not one of my favorites either… And because you’re taking the challenge, I must take it too! 🙂
