Thanks so much for all the kind words on my last post announcing our (miracle!) pregnancy! I think sharing that news might have been one of the most encouraging days of our lives! It’s still hard to believe and a lot in life has actually happened since then – more updates to come – but one of those updates concerns a new partnership this year for me with a new-to-Canada company, BiProCanada. Check out the short video below to learn a little more about why I’m working with this company and a bit of background.
So… Why BiPro? When they reached out to me I checked out the company and was happy with what I saw. Moreover, it’s pretty incredible to have a Canadian branch of a company to connect with when often many of the health products, supplements and companies that are available are based in the United States. When I saw the ingredients and macronutrient breakdown, I was even happier!

Whey protein isolate is different than just whey protein, and it’s worth learning about the difference, especially if you’re purchasing a rather random protein powder from GNC, Costco, or online. From their website,
“BiPro whey protein isolate is a product known and sought after by the elite sports industry for over 30 years in the United States mainly for its high degree of purity.
It is purified by a unique selective ion exchange process, resulting in a purity of 97%, one of the purest on the market. Its protein source comes from 100% whey protein isolate of natural origin, with no other protein or filler added. It is naturally gluten free.
It is an excellent source of protein – including branched chain amino acids (AACR), which helps to maximize training and improve endurance. It also has NSF International certification for sport.”
I think most of you know I’m not a food blogger – there’s nothing too visually appealing about my eats on a daily basis and everything too simple about how I cook. I use protein powder in some pretty standard ways:
- protein shakes
- mixed into oatmeal at breakfast
- mixed into baked goods to up the protein content
…and I’m eager to get more creative with the three types of protein powder I now have! I’d love to hear how you use protein powder in your daily eats, and if you’ve heard of BiPro Canada (or their US counterparts!).
Stay tuned for more! Until then, live well & be well,
