My diet consists primarily of whole foods…foods as close to their natural state as possible. So my protein comes from high-quality meat, fish, and poultry; nuts and seeds; nut butters; cheese and yogurt; and plant-based sources (like quinoa). I don’t often drink my food, but when I do….I have a protein smoothie using my favorite protein powder. My good friend Phyllis turned me on to Warrior Blend raw protein powder from the Sun Warrior company. Here’s what I LOVE about this product….
*It’s raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile. That means it contains all the essential amino acids I need!
*The pea, cranberry, and hemp seed protein sources work together to provide a superior product that keeps me satisfied all morning long!
*This powder is easy to digest and has absolutely no “after-taste”.
*It increases my energy and promotes optimal muscle function.
*It is gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, allergen-free, AND non GMO 🙂
*1 scoop (21 grams) contains 15 grams of protein!
When I’m running short on time, or just want to change up my breakfast routine, I mix up a tall protein smoothie with Warrior Blend. I usually mix 1 cup of almond milk, 1 cup of berries, 1 cup of greens (spinach, kale, Swiss chard), 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds, 1 scoop of Warrior Blend, and a splash of real maple syrup. Bottoms up!
