Everything in the box!

August’s workout was focused on the back.

The recipe this month is Baja Fish Tacos. I love fish tacos, but I tend to do them always the same way and I never thought of using Greek Yogurt as a sauce. It looks delicious and has 29g of protein, 17g of carbs and 5g of fat for 218 calories. Not bad!

Adept Nutrition Creatine Monohydrate ($33). This month’s full-size supplement is this pure Creatin Monohydrate, a whole 400g of it.

Creatine can help with muscle strength, but adding it to your routine can increase your weight in water. This ain’t bad as the water goes in your muscle to make them look bigger and fuller, while helping you get better at the gym.

Buff Bake Protein Sandwich Cookies Double Chocolate. I love buff bake cookies, but I had never tried the sandwich cookies before. They are a bit dry, so they crumble more than what you would expect, but they are quite tasty and they get the cookie craving under control, especially with a glass of milk before going to bed.

They are gluten-free and are made with peanuts and whey protein. 4 cookies will give you 12 g of proteins, 13g of fat and 16g of carbs for 220 calories.

Pure Protein Chocolate Deluxe. I used to eat a lot of Pure Protein Bars, especially the Chocolate Salted Caramel one. Each bar contains 12g of protein, 3g of sugar (it is mostly sweetened with Maltitol, a sugar alcohol), 17g of carbs for 180 calories. They are filling and taste like a candy bar.

Met-Rx Big 100 – Super Cookie Crunch. This is a huge meal replacement bar with a nice 32g of protein for 420 calories. This one is perfect for when you don’t have time to eat a full meal.

They both contains sugar alcohols, so some people can be sensitive to them and feel some cramping. For me, as long as I’m not going crazy and eat one of them everyday, I will not feel any discomfort.

Chike High Protein Coffee – Vanilla Iced Coffee. I love coffee, and I’m sad that not more protein powder are mocha or coffee flavored! Each pouch contains 20g of protein, as well as 150mg of caffeine. All you need to do is to mix it with water or milk to get your morning caffeine and protein fix! Yes, I need more of this. It’s perfect for mornings when I can’t eat breakfast but I still have time for coffee!

Quest Protein Powder Cookies & Cream. A really nice and interesting tasting protein shake.

Both shake were delicious, but I preferred the coffee one, if only because there’s a bit of coffee so I can drink it easily in the morning.

On The Go Cleansing towels Shower Refresh. This is probably a bonus item. This towel is convenient to keep in a gym bag or in a purse to refresh at any time when the shower is a no go!

I was quite impressed by my first Crush Crate. I’m really happy to have received a full-size Creatine supplements, which is worth almost the full price of the subscription, and all the snacks and shakes were delicious and a nice way to discover new flavors and new brands, as well as some well-known classics. Overall, a strong box with a nice variety of snacks to crush it at the gym!
