Build Muscle & Boost Performance with KAY-KAY Natural All Plant Sports Protein Powder (Review)


 
Hey! If you've been following me on my social media, I bet you know I've been having the time of my life during my recent holiday in Lombok. Well, holiday over, back to reality and of course it's back to the grind in the gym. TBH, I've been hitting plateaus in my fitness journey for quite some time. You can kill it in the gym, but without proper nutrition, it could kill your gains. Remember, 70% diet 30% exercise rules and they both need to go hand in hand. 




Of late, I was introduced to KAY-KAY All Plant Sports Protein Powder, a high quality vanilla flavoured protein combines of soy protein isolate, soy lecithin, L-Carnitine, vegetable blend & vitamins with added benefit of 23 nutrient-rich ingredients. The natural, plant based and easily digestible protein is FREE from growth hormones or antibiotics, certified vegan, sugar free, fat free, cholesterol free, trans fat free and lactose free. It is also dairy free, thus helps to keep acne under control for those who wants to pack on some serious muscle mass.


Did you know each serving of KAY-KAY All Plant Sports Protein Powder has a nutritional value which is healthier compared to other protein sources such as red meat, milk and eggs? It is the perfect choice for cleaner sources of protein to shape up and get lean. Each serving provides 10g of soy protein to support my intense workout and protein requirement. 

Ingredients :
Isolated soy protein, soy lecithin, L-Carnitine,
Vegetable blends such as carrot, red beet, mushroom, broccoli, cauliflower, green cabbage, celeriac, leek, onion, cucumber, asparagus, red bell pepper and garlic.
Vitamin blends consist of Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Panthothenic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Biotin.

 
How to prepare : 
  1. Add 2 scoops to a glass of 200ml cold or warm water, stir well and it's ready to be consumed. 
  2. It can also be added to juices or smoothies. 
 
My verdict : I am absolutely impressed how delicious KAY-KAY taste with the natural vanilla flavour. Just water, protein powder and voila! I love the fact that it tastes almost like milk with a thick and creamy consistency. It tastes equally good when mixed with juices/smoothies. The fine powder form mixed well easily, though, I prefer to have it shake. Consuming this for pre-workout also give me more energy and endurance during my workout. The preparation was quick and easy too, I could have my protein, whenever I'm on the go or don't have time for a meal.

KAY-KAY All Plant Based Sports Protein Powder is suitable for everyone, it doesn't matter if you are an athlete, workout buff, individuals with active lifestyles or those who are into purely plant based, lactose-free sustainable protein source. It is ideal to be consumed for pre or post-workout, absorbed by the body easily and quickly to help build lean muscle mass and maintain a healthy weight. Personally, I like to drink it right after exercise. 

KAY-KAY Natural All Plant Sports Protein Powder (400g) retails for RM89.90 each. Kindly log on to www.kaykaygreens.com.au for more information.

From 15th to 30th May 2017, get a 400g TRIAL bottle of KAY-KAY All Plant Sports Protein at RM38.00 only(including GST & shipping) Wow... this is such an amazing deal, I can't wait to get my hands on more KAY-KAY.

Hurry! Log on to www.innoshoppe.com or http://www.lazada.com.my/innoshoppe/ to purchase.
Let's stay fit and keep your body lean with KAY-KAY!

Ultra Bust Reshaping Treatment @ Glow & Glamour (Review)


 
Hey! This post is dedicated to the ladies, hence guys, you may want to skip this. :p
Just like our face, as we age, our breasts begin to lose firmness and fullness too. Change is a part of life we all need to accept, but thanks to today's advance technology we could restore the volume, size and look of our breasts to keep them in proper shape. A couple of weeks ago, I dropped by Glow & Glamour to try out their new Ultra Bust Reshaping treatment which helps to firm and promote a fuller breast. This highly effective bust treatment uses high level sound wave technology to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin to promote cellular renewal and repair, tightens bust, stimulate connecting tissues, increase blood circulation and helps with lymphatic drainage.
