Not sure what to get the special ones on your list? Tune in throughout the month for our annual 21 Gifts of Diva-licious Christmas. We’re certain you’ll find everything you need — and a few great things for everyone else! First up? Pocket Protein!
During the holidays there is a lot of temptation. With all the running around you’re doing, it’s easy to grab one too many holiday sweets, and find yourself only able to slip into Kris Kringle‘s pants on Dec. 25! Keep your hunger and waistline in check with Pocket Protein, the portable supplement designed by Mark Long of Real World/Road Rules Challenge fame.
“I started the company with three of my fraternity brothers,” Mark shared with me over edamame at Bamboo 52 in New York City. “When we first started, we saw products that were cool, but they were so weight-lifter driven. No mom would pick that up. We thought, ‘what if we could take the same concept and make it universal for everyone.'”
Pocket protein comes in two flavors: strawberry, which offers 15 grams of protein, and berry with 20 grams of protein. The two-ounce, non-refrigerated packets (so yes, you can take it on a plane) are free of fat, sugar, gluten, carbs, and lactose, and have collagen as well as whey protein. “Collagen is really good for the skin and nailsΓÇª kind of a bonus for women, I think.” We think so too, Mark!
Mark is doing a really cool challenge this month: “People can write in and pitch a challenge to me. It can be anything — going skydiving or coaching their kid’s t-ball. It’s for six weeks, and after they are up, I’m going to pick one and go to the person’s house and they are going to do whatever it is with me for a web series.” We’re definitely going to need some energy for that.
