Protein powder is a great way for athletes to get the protein they need to build and repair their muscles.

1. Orange Juice
2. Peanut Buttera
Oatmeal is a terrific source of carbohydrates, but it lacks protein. Add some protein powder to your oatmeal and you'll have an excellent carb/protein combo.
Another thing you can add protein powder to is pancake mix. Instead of plain pancakes, you will have high protein pancakes that taste great.
All of these options make consuming protein easy and take almost no time to prepare. The next time you get sick of your blah protein drink, remember these other ways to get your daily protein intake. To learn more, check out the video above.
