Power Your Busy Days with Protein (Sponsored)

Brought to you by V8

We're all familiar with those days where it's difficult to squeeze in balanced meals, or any meal at all. Between running errands and keeping the kids on schedule, we are all in need of a grab and go snack to get us through the day. But, we're all guilty of grabbing quick and unhealthy alternatives; especially on the mornings you need to get the kids out of the house and to school in 10 minutes or less.

It's crucial to make sure you get all the nutrients you need, and protein is the secret to powering though those busy days. The Institute of Medicine recommends adults get a minimum of 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight per day -- that's about 58 grams for a 160 lb. adult.

V8 believes what you put in your body matters, which is why V8 Protein shakes and bars are made with ingredients you know, like protein from peas, soy, milk, and brown rice, blended with vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes. V8 Protein's shakes and bars give you satisfying and delicious energy for that next impromptu soccer game in the backyard with the kids.
