Almost Wordless Wednesday

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Good morning!
Lately I’ve been feeling so far behind with reading blogs, commenting, and responding to emails.  So I’m sort of taking today off by posting a mostly wordless Wednesday so I can hopefully catch up on some reading!

Enjoy some pics and a few words from yesterday 🙂

Okay, this stuff needs a few more words of explanation.  I have been looking for a good protein powder that is made from grass-fed whey to incorporate into my diet and have heard good things about Jay Robb.  So I inquired about it and about a month ago Jay Robb sent me a box full of yummy protein bars, egg white protein powder and Grass-fed Whey protein powder to try out.


When the package came we had just got home from running errands and The Hubby and I were both hungry.  So we broke into one of the protein bars and was happy we did.  So creamy, flavorful and without Gluten, wheat, Soy, MSG, hydrogenated oils, transfats, artificial sweeteners, acesulfame-K, aspartame, sucralose, splenda, casein, glycerine or maltitol.


The protein powders have been used in smoothies, oats (as pictured above), banana froyo and breakfast cookies for the hubby.


  • made with 100% rBGH-Free Why Protein isolate
  • Sourced from grass fed cows not treated with rBGH (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone)
  • 25 grams of protein per serving!
  • Lactose free
  • Gluten-free ingredients
  • No fat, No cholesterol
  • No sugar, No aspartame
  • No artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners
  • No casein, No msg
  • Made with stevia

While we really enjoyed the protein bars, the protein powder was a little too grainy for our liking.  Well, the Whey wasn’t as much so as the egg white and while I didn’t mind it as much, The Hubby wasn’t really a fan.  When mixed into a smoothie or oatmeal you didn’t notice it but if you drank it with just water or milk (as the hubby does), you definitely noticed the texture.


  • 24 grams of protein per serving!
  • Lactose Free
  • Mixes with a blender or shaker bottle
  • No fat, No cholesterol
  • No sugar, No aspartame
  • No artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners
  • No casein, msg or gluten
  • Made with stevia

I would definitely purchase these for smoothies and like that they sell them in small packets which are easy to travel with and take up less storage space.  Plus they have some pretty good flavors that were a lot of fun to experiment with!

  • Have you tried Jay Robb protein products before?  
  • Do you have a favorite clean protein powder right now? 
  • Do you ever feel like your drowning with responding to messages and catching up on blog reading?

  1. That wine glass sounds like me yesterday…So I proceeded to drink 3 glasses of wine, and felt better 😉

    All day everyday I feel like I’m drowning in blogging. I’ve never loved something so much that also makes me feel so anxious!!!

  2. I’m glad you found a protein powder you like! Picnic and playtime outside sounds nice, your little boy is so cute!

  3. I’ve heard of the Jay Robb products before, but I’ve never tried them. I’m going to keep an eye out for them though!

    Also, where did you get those absolutely ADORABLE red pants and striped top for your little guy?

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      They are pretty good so definitely snag some if you find them. Our Whole Foods sells them in packets as well as full size containers. I think our Sprouts does too 🙂
      The pants and the striped top are from Gapkids. The top is from last summer though. It’s getting a little small… The pants are from this year 🙂

  4. How do you look so pretty while foam rolling? My face is usually in agony haha I have never heard of Jay Robb but I’m intrigued. I’ve heard good things about egg white protein powder but have also yet to try. I use pure New Zealand Whey and Vega (plant based).

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Haha! I was faking it 🙂 I’m usually a distorted mess as well. It hurts so bad! I love Vega!

  5. I love your backyard picnic!! I need to start doing that with my kiddos! The weather is perfect!!!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I need to do it more often. He just doesn’t eat as much because he gets distracted but we had a blast and really, that’s what counts right!?!

  6. I hear good things about Jay Robb but haven’t tried it out yet for myself.
    And how adorable that you had a picnic in your backyard. I so want to do that.
    Lately, I’ve been really liking vega and sun warrior for protein powders. They’re both pretty darn good.
    And I definitely get the blogging overload sometimes! It’s actually a lot of word to create posts, edit them and photos, respond to comments, emails, and all that!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I’ve been loving Vega lately too! And Sunwarrior is always good! Have you tried the Vega Vanilla Chai? It’s really good in coffee and I know how much you love coffee 🙂

  7. Aww what a cute pic of the pup and the Love Nugget 🙂 Totally take a break from blogging when you need it! I don’t typically read on the weekends, and I know I slack on commenting at times. I try to read blogs still when I’m on the go though with my bloglovin’ app on my phone

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Thanks Alysia! They are best buds 🙂
      I need to get better at totally unplugging during the weekends. I’ve been using my bloglovin ap as well but I don’t comment when I read on my phone as often as I’d like. It sure comes in handy though when I’m waiting for an apt. or in line somewhere!

  8. I’ve never tried Jay Robb products before, but they sound really great. I never just use powder in milk or water, so I may have to check out the powders. Love the picnic idea!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I don’t typically do just water or milk but The hubby does. Every once in awhile I will though if I just need a shot of protein. These are definitely a good source of protein since they are so clean!

  9. I would like to try the vanilla, all I have tried is the strawberry and orange, but they are pretty tasty!

  10. I don’t mean to add too much to your blog catching up/commenting but had to say hello as I’ve just found yours and am loving it! Jay Robb protein looks great (5 ingredients – amazing!) and now I see it’s available on Amazon UK I might have to put in an order…

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I love getting comments especially from new readers so you’re definitely not adding to my catching up! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

  11. Some days you just need a break…enjoy!

  12. Blogging can definitely get overwhelming at times. Even I find myself getting buried under it, and I don’t have a family to worry about! And I’ve come across the Jay Robb powders in the States on a few occasions, and now I’m kind of kicking myself for not picking some up. I’m not huge on protein powders, but I do love having some on hand for those times where you need a quick and easy shot of protein.

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s fun but it definitely gets overwhelming at times. I need to figure out a way to balance it all but I’m not sure I ever will!
      Yes! You should definitely try it next time you can. It’s pretty good and great ingredients!

  13. I love egg white protein powder! I’ll have to try Jay Robb the next time I need some. I’m constantly trying to find the right balance of blogging, catching up on reading, keeping up with housework and playing with Keenan. It can certainly be overwhelming at times!

    I love the backyard picnic; we enjoyed one yesterday!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s pretty good! The protein bars were delicious too!
      That balance is something I’m not sure I’ll ever get down. Especially with the changing ways of kids as they get older 🙂

  14. I really need to get better about foam rolling, you’re so good! And I love your picnic! I definitely need a fall picnic before it gets too cold 🙂

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I need to be much better than I am. The one we have at home right now is not good so I only do it at the gym. Need to invest in a new one so I can do it nightly like I should be!

  15. Sometimes you just need a break from blog reading and commenting… and no guilt! 🙂

  16. I hear you on being so far behind; I have been behind since the twins were born. 🙂 Sometimes is just happens!!

    I am always looking for new protein powder; I will have to try this one next time. Thank you!!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I couldn’t even imagine how life must be with twins! Let alone four kids! You are superwoman!
