    Hi Flavia!

    Great to see all your pregnancy workouts! Thank you for continuing to share! I have a question, I’m wondering if you are still using your protein powders for shakes or anything during your pregnancy. I have searched and searched on whether they’re safe or not to take during pregnancy and there are so many contradicting sites. I know you have used them for years so thought you’d be a trustworthy source…last time I was pregnant I used vega (and still do), but wondered what your take is and if you use them still. I love my shakes for breakfast very day, they just wouldn’t be complete without the protein..thanks so much!!

      Hi Carlye,
      Flavia is still using Bio Trust protein powder and it is the main protein powder she recommends :)
      All the best!
