This delicious powder comes in several outstanding flavors and gives you 21g of variable-digestive rate whole-food sourced protein and 30g of whole-food complex carbs. If you can’t make a meal, here's your solution.

There’s also Shake Time, a whole-food protein powder supplying 25g of protein per serving. Finally, there’s Egg White Crystals with 20g of pure egg protein. Make a shake with it or use it to cook up some eggs! 

5% Doesn’t Stop With Shakes - We Have Snack Time! 

With 5%, getting your protein couldn’t be easier or more delicious - especially if you like peanut butter. Specifically, peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter. Snack Time is delicious single-serving squeeze pouches that provide 14g egg protein (chocolate peanut butter) or 15g egg protein (peanut butter). They're super easy to use and taste amazing. Just put a couple in your backpack, purse, or case and you're all set. 


Another great option is nuts - whichever kind you like. You can buy single-serving bags or bring your own in a resealable bag.
