Recently, protein supplements have become a massive part of many peoples diets, mainly due to a number of factors: clever marketing, peer pressure, the desire to fit in or simply the lack of knowledge.

Yes, protein is hugely important when it comes to building muscle and it is vital that you get enough to allow you to achieve this. However, it is also important that you are getting the right nutrients elsewhere. What many people don't realise is how much protein is actually required to promote muscle building. Protein powders are not only expensive but they are also unnecessary. Before you even think about taking one you should be looking to plan out your diet so you can make sure you are getting all of the required nutrients, not just protein.

This recipe is a cheaper way to get some protein into your diet should you need it. As it is using milk and milk powder, you are also getting some carbohydrate which is essential for recovery following exercise as is the salt which goes to replace what is lost in sweat.
