Are you all about the whole new year, new you? Does that include adding more protein to your diet? Or maybe protein powder is already an everyday staple. If protein powder is something you even have in your house, you have to read on. My boyfriend and I have discovered VADE Nutrition, and they are truly changing the game with dissolvable on-the-go protein pods.
Yes, they are exactly what they sound like and look just as you’re imagining.

A couple of months ago my boyfriend really started watching his macros – calories, carbs, sugar, fat, fiber and protein. And after a little while, I jumped on the train too. When it comes to protein, there are only so much chicken, so many shrimp, so many beans, so many eggs one can eat. But when you have a daily protein goal to reach, you’ve got to do what you can to meet it every day.
Shortly after starting this new lifestyle, the biggest container of protein powder I’ve ever seen, came into the house. I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of protein powder. I just don’t like the taste, but my boyfriend has been adding it to smoothies, yogurt, and simply shaking some up when he needs a little boost to meet his macros.
Aaand, that means powder spills on the counter and sometimes in the floor. Measuring it out 1 scoop at a time until he gets the perfect amount. There has to be a better way.
VADE Nutrition thought the same thing and introduced us to dissolvable on-the-go protein pods. It seems like everything else these days come in a pod, so why not protein powder? They’re easy to grab when on the go; there’s no measuring because each pod has 20 grams of pre-measured protein; and there’s no mess. Total game changer! (And this is a pod that’s actually safe for people to consume, unlike some of the things the new generation has been ingesting.)
In fact, these protein pods are so game changing that even Alex Rodriguez and Mark Cuban couldn’t resist investing. If you’re a big Shark Tank fan, you’ve probably peeped these already.
Protein Pod Stats:
- 20 grams of high-quality whey isolate protein
- Wrapped in food-grade film that instantly dissolves when shaken or blended
- Available in vanilla or chocolate
- 0 sugar
- 0 fat
- 90 calories
- 4.4 grams of BCAAS
- Only 1 gram of carbs in every scoop
Oh, and did I mention that these pods have the best tasting protein either one of us has ever tried. My boyfriend likes the chocolate and while I’m not the biggest fan of the taste of protein, I actually like the vanilla pods. It’s a rich vanilla flavor, which is something I can do – sweetness and protein in one.
It’s a total win-win for us because we get the combo pack. He uses the chocolate and I use the vanilla. I guess we have a true ebony and ivory kind of relationship, haha.
