Genius Nutrition Protein- why it’s so Genius!

PROTEIN – Many of you may know various brand names of protein powders, may know many people who consume them for many different reasons, you may consume protein yourself, which is great! Once you enter the ‘fitness world’ the word protein becomes a very important word to you…whatever your goals may be.

In the Life of a Chocolate Girl we have me (the sceptic), my husband (the supplement consumer), our little bear cub (Baby Ayan – 18 months old, still breastfeeds), Oh and Cliffy the Spitz. I state this to you because, in this case the relevance of QUALITY of protein plays a massive role in the dynamics. My husband has been a gym goer for years now, and has always taken protein to aid him with muscle growth, repair and recovery – so over the years I’ve seen all the different brands he’s tried and have always had protein in our home at my disposal if I’d ever wanted to take it – well, he looks pretty good if I don’t say so myself. However, I never really took any protein despite having intense workouts and needing the extra protein being also a vegetarian and a breastfeeding mother with a super active lifestyle. I used to say to my husband all the time that the ingredients just didn’t seem natural or healthy and that I simply wasn’t ready to put unknown sourced ingredients into my body simply for aesthetic reasons whilst in the meantime possibly ruining the health of both, me and my baby. That is, until I came across GENIUS NUTRITION! 

I am now a protein drinker, I still breastfeed, have much more efficent muscle recovery, therefore less tiredness, more intense workouts and increased daily muscle progress. I’ve truly converted! Okay, so now you’re wondering what is it about the Genius Nutrition product that converted me? What makes it different to all the other supplement/protein companies I have come across until date? Well, let me bullet point you why…

  • Genius Nutrition has bought out one of the most innovate whey proteins until date
  • They provide only the purest, highest quality whey protein available
  • The whey is sourced only from cows that graze on natural grass pastures
  • Sourced from cows that have not had any antibiotics or hormone influence 
  • Protein is produced without GMO’s, pesticides and artifical flavours 
  • Protein from the macronutrients are calculated (no Amino Spiking on the label) 
  • Made in Belgium – Chocolate Dreams is so delicious and tastes exactly like belgian chocolate (always a bonus if you’re a chocolate lover like me). 

See, what more could you want? Perfect for the vegetarian! Keeps the protein requirements up, is healthy and pure as can. Most importantly the quality that is obtained from happy AND healthy cows is simply not comparible. Need I expand more? You may be wondering why the quality and purity mean so much to me, well here’s the thing…In my opinion, life isn’t just about aesthaetic quality, but just as or even more importantly – true quality. What’s the point in looking great if you’re feeding yourself all types of unknown substances and chemicals on the inside? The effects may not show now, but down the line, you never know what damage you may have been causing yourself all this time. Ask yourself, will the aesthetics or the health matter to you in 30 years time? It’s your choice, opt for Genius Nutrition today, get that kick-ass workout, look good, feel good & guarantee yourself a healthier, happier tomorrow!

Oh but please note you do not have to sweat it out on the treadmill, other types of activities count as cardio, including walking my cute little puppy Clifford – pictured below (story about his name is saved for another day), I may be biased, but isn’t he just the cutest? 



Last but not least, if you were wondering about this absolutely gorgeous rose gold hair colour that totally fits in with the spring blossom vibe, then it was achieved by my hair dresser Andreea Bogatean. You can find her on fb + insta under this name, as so many people have asked me for the deets about this hair but I really have no idea! She’s the magic maker, so check her out 😀

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
