Why use a protein powder?
The main reasons are to increase your daily protein intake, assist with putting on lean muscle and reduce body fat. But protein powders have come such a long way since they were first introduced to the market. We no longer need to adhere to the chalky artificial tastes and gassy side effects. Plant based proteins are amazing! They are highly digestible, nutrient dense, completely balanced protein supplement. You dont need to be a vegan or vegetarian either to enjoy the fantastic benefits of these powders.
Here is a list of some of my tried and tested favourites!
This powder is all-in-one, and is a great supplement to your active lifestyle. It contains antioxidants, fibre, probiotics, greens, and of course 15 grams of plant based protein. Also the flavours are all awesome. My favourite is the Vanilla Chai! Mmmm (hint..go beyond the smoothie and sprinkle on popcorn!!)
The recent innovation to Vega Sport Performance Protein comes from the addition of SaviSeed (sacha inchi) protein, a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component of serotonin production(1). Serotonin—the feel good hormone—helps with the mental aspect of recovery, so you’ll keep the drive alive and be motivated to train again. Take Vega Sport Performance Protein within 30 to 90 minutes of your workout or throughout the day to meet your individual protein needs to recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner.
Warrior Blend is an easily digestible protein that is a nutrient filled superfood! The taste is also amazing. I love the Vanilla! (hint...I love this mixed with fresh/frozen berries and almond milk)
