STYLISH PROTEIN SHAKERS

Stylish Protein Shakers

Protein is essential for those who train hard, especially straight after a workout but also at regular intervals throughout the day. Protein supplements are a great way to get the required nutrition for repair and growth especially when it’s not convenient to be chomping on a chicken breast every few hours at work, in meetings, on the go and so on.

Like water bottles, I’m surprised that there aren’t more stylish options for protein shakers on the market. There are millions of plastic protein shakers. Understandable. They are lightweight, affordable and often have useful storage containers screwed to the bottom. However, there are just too many flaws that I can’t overlook: They contain BPA, powder gets stuck to the bottom, shakes are often lumpy and most notably, when left for more than a minute before washing up they develop an overwhelming stench. They are also tricky to clean thoroughly, they leak, spill, split and frankly, they look tacky.

So I’ve been on the hunt for stylish shakers that avoid the afore mentioned pitfalls whilst also looking smart enough for the office – a grown up, professional “Don Draper” look –  rather than littering ones desk with ugly plastic containers more suited to a school lunch hall. It’s not been a fruitful search, so I’ve included a couple of cocktail shakers and a travel mug into the mix to shake things up.
