Introducing my very own 'protein station'

I live in an adorable and urban apartment in downtown Olympia. I love everything about our home... minus the kitchen counterspace. This proves a daunting task as protein powder containers are the size of small pets. Our kitchen real estate is a premium, so having giant tubs of the stuff hanging out on the counter tops isn't an option. Especially considering I hate clutter... It drives me nuts! My lovely boyfriend installed a 'protein station' for me, and I wanted to share pictures of this. I think its a pretty awesome set-up... shelves from Ikea and glass containers found at Target... my Blender bottles... its perfect!!!

One thing that drives me batty is having the same thing to eat (or in this case... drink) over and over again, so I'm amassing a collection of protein powders. This allows me to have mulitple mixes, so that I can focus on getting my protein in. I'll admit it, I'm having a hard time getting it all in everyday. Drinking all this protein is a hard task... I feel like its a full time job, and I'm overwhelmed by it! But my goal is to improve each and every day, and having my very own protein bar is a step in the right direction!

In rotation: Syntrax Nectars (in Cappuccino, Natural Fruit Punch, Twisted Cherry, and Lemonade), Unjury's Chicken Soup, and 4EverFit's CranRazz


  1. Hey, do you have any suggestions for the syntrax nectars? I bought some samples and the first one I tried smelled like vomit. I am afraid to try more. I also don't see directions: how much water to how much mix. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

    I'm going to steal your idea. That looks awesome.

  2. Honestly... I'm not crazy about ANY protein powder, but I know its something that I'll just get used too! If you can drink milk or Lactaid, thats a good option for the Chocolate/Vanilla/Strawberry/Cappuccino flavors. Some people swear by mixing it with Crystal Lite... Another idea is to drink it with a lid (so you don't smell it!)

  3. That is such a great idea! So I just ordered samples of the nectar protein powders, I love click powders! and Ive heard a lot about Max protein powder, so I may be ordering that soon. I love those shakers you have too!! They work so great!
