Favorite Use of MuscleEgg

I love to make ice cream with muscleegg by mixing 1 cup of chocolate muscleegg with 1 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder. Blend all ingredients well in a high powered blender like the ninja professional and enjoy. My goto breakfast is 2 cups of cake batter muscleegg with 1 cup of quick oats in a shaker cup. Mix the two together and let sit for about 10 minutes until the oats soften. I then drink that on my way into work.

Favorite Hobbies

Outside the gym I really enjoy spending time with my family down the shore fishing and crabbing.

Best Advice I Ever Got

Knowing that we only live once so do what you love and love what you do. I came across a quote that said, If you alway do what you've always done then you'll always be what you've always been. That had a great impact on me, so I like to share that with others. We all have the potential to change and be something great! So ask yourself, How bad do I want it? and then make it happen!
