If you’re still going strong with that New Year’s resolution to stay fit, (1) good for you and (2) you might need help introducing protein powders into your routine. There are various reasons to drink protein shakes, but they’re most commonly used as a breakfast drink or meal replacement and after a workout to aid with muscle repair.
