All New Flex Bottles: Everything You Want to Know

All New Flex Bottles: Everything You Want to Know

Browsing our website, you may notice a familiar bottle sporting a new style of lid.  Enter the Ice Shaker Flex Bottle.

Our all new Flex bottles hold 26oz and feature the same construction and design as our 26oz Shaker bottles.  In fact, the lids are actually compatible with one another to make for an easy transition when your drink preference changes.  As you know, our shaker lid is spill/leak proof, features a pop-top spout, flip-up carry handle, and removable agitator.  It is ideal for ice cold water, smoothies, and nutrition shakes due to the agitators ability to effortlessly blend supplement powders.

So, why the new lid offering? What makes it different?  We're glad you asked!  Our Flex lids are a more low profile option and cater to the "sipper" rather that the "chugger".  They are spill/leak proof as well but give you two options for how you would like to sip.  Option 1 is our durable flip-up tab that drinks like a traditional coffee cup.  The Flex lid is amazing for hot beverages such as coffee, tea, cider, and cocoa.  In the center of the lid, there is a hole sealed by an attached rubber stopper.  If you prefer to sip out of the tab, this may be opened to allow venting and better flow as you drink.  Speaking of the center straw hole, that brings us to sipping option 2, sip from the straw.  Yes, all of our 26oz Flex bottles come with a reusable Tritan straw.  This makes it the ideal bottle for water, smoothies, blended milk shakes, and juices.  Flex lids offer incredible versatility and give you the choice to sip how you want, when you want.  Click here to browse our 26oz Flex Bottles as well as some of our other new arrivals.

4 Healthy Late Night Snacks You Should Eat To Gain Muscle

4 Healthy Late Night Snacks You Should Eat To Gain Muscle

It's 9pm at night, and you are hungry.  But, you have heard over and over that you should not eat late at night and fear that you are going to gain (bad)weight.  

Eating late at night could be a big factor to you gaining weight and putting on fat, but it could also be a big factor in gaining muscle if you do it the right way.  

If you are working out and trying to gain muscle, you have to feed your muscles so that they can repair and grow.  When sleeping, you are not eating for 7+ hours and need to make sure your muscles are getting the nutrients they need.  Slow digesting proteins and healthy fats are ideal for this muscle growth.

You will notice that for some of the snacks that require protein powder, we recommend casein protein as opposed to whey.  If you would like to know the difference between the two, please read our previous article here.

These 4 healthy late night snacks are ideal for muscle growth

1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Casein Protein Shake

Simple, slow digesting high protein shake that tastes amazing. No blender required.  Casein protein is the ideal protein to consume before bed(or any long fast).  Unlike Whey, Casein protein is digested slowly so you get a longer steadier stream of proteins to your muscles.  Pro tip: If you work out right before bed, use a blend of whey and casein so you get the quick delivery of proteins that your muscles need to recover as well as the sustained release to keep feeding them while you sleep.

Fill up your Ice Shaker bottle with 8-10oz of cold water or unsweetened almond milk.  Add one serving(usually 1 scoop) of Chocolate Casein Protein Powder. Add one tablespoon peanut butter powder(we like PBFit) and one teaspoon Organic Liquid Coconut Oil.  Shake it up and enjoy.  

2. Eggs & Advocado 

Two whole eggs combined with two ounces of avocado yields about 245 calories, 14 grams of protein, six grams of carbs, and 18 grams of fat.

3. Nuts - N - More High protein spreads

This one is great for convenience.  Simply eat a spoonful or spread it on to a slice of multi-grain toast to curb your hunger and get the protein your muscles are craving. 

4. Low Fat Cottage Cheese, mixed with chocolate protein powder & Almond Butter.

Deliciously simple and packed with protein.  We recommend using a whey or whey/casein blended protein for this one.  The protein content in cottage cheese is roughly 80% casein so you can get the benefits of both fast absorbing and slow absorbing proteins when mixed with whey or whey blend.  We recommend 5Pro Nutrition All Natural Whey Protein-Chocolate.
