This post is about my experience with Nuzest and how i’ve incorporated these protein and superfood powders into my routine.
In the vast array of protein brands on the market nowadays, it’s becoming increasingly hard to decipher the good from the bad, the real from the fake and the nourishing from the depleted. I tend to look to some of the top Crossfit Games athletes for supplement ideas when I’m curious to try a new brand. Jamie Greene is a top female Crossfit Athlete competing out of the UAE. I was scrolling through her Instagram feed when I discovered the brand Nuzest. I briefly checked out their website, some of their ingredient lists, and I quickly realized that this brand is doing things right.
Nuzest’s products are vegan, non-gmo, gluten free, soy free, nut free and nut free. The ingredients in their protein powders are intentional and clean. Perhaps the TASTIEST part of this review is that these have got to be some of the best-tasting protein powders I’ve ever tried. They are truly delicious; you feel like you’re drinking a yummy, satisfying shake, not a healthy meal replacement. I stumbled on the insane combination of combining a serving the Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein and the Cacao Banana Quick Vita Kick–my goodness. It was so unexpectedly good. It shakes up and combines easily in a blender bottle, giving it a creamy texture without any powdery clumps.
Here’s a snapshot of the products I got to sample! I tried three of the their products in a range of flavors. The products include their Clean Lean Protein, Just Fruit & Veg, and their Quick Vita Kick.
It’s hard to choose a favorite flavor of each product because they are all really stellar in their own regard. However, I will say that I normally tend to reach for vanilla, and their Vanilla Clean Lean Protein did not disappoint.
Here’s a glimpse of the ingredient list of each product along with their macronutrient breakdowns:

Measuring food was a foreign concept to me not long ago, but I gained an interest in it after learning more about how consuming certain macronutrient ratios may be able to maximize health and performance during workouts.
I came across this opportunity to try out an Eat Smart Scale and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I’m new to using scales (thus, I don’t have much to compare it to), but I wouldn’t see a need to ever get a different scale. This one seems to do an excellent job and is easy to store (we keep it on top of our microwave).
I like that could can measure in various ways like grams, ounces or pounds. My routine has been to the scale on with the bowl I’m using already on it, that way the scale is at zero with an empty bowl on top (it doesn’t weight the bowl this way).
I’m excited to have this fancy tool in our kitchen and have found it useful espescially for measuring out fat servings (like nuts) as well as measuring ground coffee for consistent brewing. If you do any kind of measuring in your kitchen on a regular basis, this is definitely worth having.

I’m off to the gym so I am keeping this brief–but this smoothie was so good that I have to share with you! This was a spontaneous creation (& Holy freaking cow–it’s better than the real thing).
I like to wing it in the kitchen (no measuring!) and this smoothie was done that way…
