Holiday CLICK Giveaway

'Tis the season for chocolate and candy canes... but as a runner, I never skip the protein to refuel and recover after a workout.  This past year, CLICK Espresso Protein Drink has been one of my favorite post-run options.  I like it cold as a thick smoothie or an iced coffee drink.  Here's one my favorite smoothie recipe for the holiday season...

However, there are winter days when I return chilled to the bone after a long run in the snow.  In those moments, I like my CLICK hot like cocoa.  Below is one of my favorite treats. It's rich in taste and delicious!

Why is protein important after a run?
Protein reduces recovery time and gets you back to full speed quickly. When you run, microtears occur in your tendons, muscles and other tissues. After you run, these microtears elevate your body's demand for the amino acids (found in protein), which helps with tissue repair and rebuilding. Protein drinks provide a rich dose of these amino acids your body can absorb faster than through whole foods. This can help enhance the speed at which your body repairs those tears, reducing the recovery time needed after your run.

Have you tried protein drinks yet?
I highly recommend CLICK Espresso Protein Drink. The Mocha flavor, which also comes in Decaf, is a great mix of espresso and chocolate flavoring. There is also a Vanilla Latte flavor that I like for a mild smooth taste.

Each 12-14oz serving of CLICK contains a double shot of gourmet espresso coffee, 15g of lasting protein and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. All products are naturally flavored, colored, and gluten-free.

Enter the holiday giveaway below to win a shaker, 2 canisters of CLICK and a holiday striped tumbler. Giveaway managed and winner picked through Rafflecopter. Winner announced this Friday, Dec. 21. Good Luck!

    1. Click is the BEST protein powder I've ever tasted. I drink it every day. I love the vanilla but the mocha has its merits, and the decaf is perfect for a warm cozy drink at bedtime!

  4. I love Click! I was turned onto it by you back during the Lose a Marathon challenge. I have some at least once or twice a week. Going to try the peppermint recipe later today. TFS!

  5. CLICK is awesome, it's my go-to recovery drink (and frequently lunch!). I also found a recipe for CLICK truffles that I have to try this winter.
