How to Use Protein Powder

Protein powder is a very versatile product. You can simply add it to smoothies, stir it into yogurt or oatmeal, or use it in baking to get your boost of nutrition. So pretty much, anytime throughout the day is a good time for protein. However, many fitness experts recommend a protein shake within 30-60 minutes after your workout to refuel and rebuild muscles.
