Protein shakes are a great way to fuel your muscles before and especially after a good work out. I have tried several proteins out there but always felt conflicted when I turned the tub around to look at the nutritional information. I would find a list of ingredients that I could not pronounce. I knew that there had to be a healthier, more natural option out there so I started to do some research. That’s when I came across Garden of Life’s Raw Protein. The great thing about Raw Protein is that it is appropriate for those that are on a vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, or gluten free diet. It’s also great for those that are on a low carb diet. Not only are you getting 17 grams of plant derived protein, but you are also getting live probiotics and enzymes which are imperative for a healthy, well functioning gut, Everything in this protein powder is non-GMO, raw, and organic. Its also loaded with fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients such as Beta-glucans, SOD, glutathione, amino acids, and CoQ10. I love how great I feel since I have included into my diet!
There are several flavors to choose from including chocolate, vanilla chai, yerba mate, coffee, and my personal favorite, vanilla. I love to put a scoop in my blender along with some unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a couple cups of frozen, unsweetened berries. It makes a wonderful breakfast or post work out snack, My son Noah LOVES it when I make a little extra smoothie for him.
