The Real Wednesday Post

Yesterday morning I sat at my laptop and cranked out a few blog posts, including this “Wordless Wednesday” post, only to realize a few hours later that it wasn’t Wednesday.  Nope, it was only Tuesday.  I guess I was really excited to get that post up, huh?  That or maybe I am in a rain-induced funk since it has rained every day for the past 16 days here. 

I recently reached out to Sunwarrior for samples of their Warrior Blend protein powder.  In my never-ending quest to defeat ED (eating disorder) and properly recover from my workouts, I needed a product that I could use daily that was kind to my digestive system.  They sent me samples of the three different Warrior Blend varieties:

  • Natural
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate


More about Warrior Blend:

Warrior Blend fuses and multiplies the power of several rich protein sources into a smooth, great tasting, and revolutionary proprietary formula that is overwhelmingly superior to the individual components alone. This dynamic fusion, along with a cold extraction process, creates a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile exceptionally high in Arginine, Lysine, Leucine, and branched chain amino acids.

  • Contains all essential amino acids in a complete, balanced profile
  • One of the best protein powders for any lifestyle, not just vegan or vegetarian
  • Free of solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, or artificial colors
  • Contains no animal products, dairy, egg, gluten, soy, added sugar, wheat, or yeast
  • Great source of energy
  • No cholesterol
  • Heart healthy
  • Increases metabolism to burn fat while building muscle
  • Easy to digest and creates a feeling of satiety (fullness)
  • Promotes healthy kidney and liver functions
  • A green, hypoallergenic food
  • Improves mental clarity
  • Helps relieve candida

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the varieties, though the Natural is best used in baking or a smoothie.  I went ahead and ordered the small bag of the Chocolate Warrior Blend am couldn’t be happier with it!  I mix 1 scoop of the powder into 8-10 oz of Silk Pure Almond and shake.  I did learn early on that the little metal ball that comes with the shaker container is very important – not using it produces a shake with big chunks.  I have had no digestive issues related to the Warrior Blend (HUGE!) and I just ordered another bag! 

Another big hurdle for me to jump over is not feeling hungry after a workout.  Drinking a protein shake on the way home or just before I hop in the shower is mindless and relatively easy.  The road to a successful recovery requires steps in the right direction and I have been making those with products like this protein powder.  The Warrior Blend has also served as a protein boost on non-workout days when I haven’t quite met my protein requirements for the day. 

I am not going to lie, the Warrior Blend protein powder is not cheap, but I have found the best price on  The price seems to fluctuate – today is is $23.40/1.1 lb bag, but when I ordered last week, it was $21.99/1.1 lb bag.  I view the price as an investment in my health.  Sure it would be nice to use that money towards a new pair of running shoes, but after struggling to find something that works for me, I know I have made the best choice for me

*I received 3, single-serve packets of the Warrior Blend protein powder from Sunwarrior to sample and review.  I have since purchased their products on  The thoughts and opinions shared in this post are mine and have not been influenced by anyone or anything.
