USN Diet Whey protein bar 

Taste: 4.5

Texture: 4

Effect: 3.5

Ease to consume: 4.5

Comments: This bar tastes almost guiltily indulgent and satisfies any sugar cravings you may have. With the appearance and taste of a more sinful chocolate bar, it is worth keeping a stash of these for the dark days. It has a decent hit of protein at 15g a bar therefore is a good way to bump up your intake. Watch the sugar content however, perhaps keeping these as a treat rather than part of your everyday diet.

My missus has started doing bananna smoothies in the mornings, which happen to coincide with my runs. Soya milk, frozen bananas, honey, ground almonds and cinamon. Not a clue if it's good or not but it tastes nice and cools me down!

Mmmmm!!!!!      Can I marry your wife.

Sounds great and I would say it is good for you.

I used to have a smoothy after a run, as I found before was to much before, thats unless you take the smoothy an hour or so before.

Feedback on this would be good.

Even a peanut butter sandwich works as a post-run snack. No need for all this synthesized protein gunk.
