Gotta Get That Protein Bro

Lately we’ve found that many people have been asking us what type of protein they should use, what they should look for in it, and what works best for us, so we decided to help you out! Now everyone’s body is different, so what may work for us may work differently for you.  Check out our list and tips below and let us know which one you already try or are going to go ahead and buy!

1) Hemp Protein – Trader Joe’s (Vanilla or Chocolate $15-21)

This version of protein is one that we just started trying out and we love it! A constant problem we were having with Whey proteins was the after bloat, but with hemp we don’t have any of that (AMEN!).  Hemp protein is made from the hemp seed, which is high in fiber, vegan friendly, and has above average digestibility.  The amount of protein per serving is a little lower with hemp proteins, but what really got us was the low sodium, low sugars, and no bloat aspect with the Trader Joe’s brand.

Try out our recipe below:

  • 4 tablespoons of Chocolate Hemp Protein, unsweetened coconut milk (1/2 cup or more depending on consistency preference), 1 scoop almond butter, 1 banana, handful or kale or spinach, dash of cinnamon, ice and blend! (option to add in a little bit of coffee as well!)

2) Plant Based- Raw Fit – ThriveMarket (Several flavors – $33-34)

RAW is plant-based, vegan, gluten/soy/ and dairy free high-protein powder that we love to throw into the mix.  It has very few ingredients and 0 grams of sugar (WOOHOO!).  The sodium count is higher than hemp, but remember to listen to your body and what works 🙂

  • Scoop of protein, coconut water, scoop of almond butter, banana, blueberries, ice and blend (option to add raw coconut chunks)

3) Low/ No Carb Protein – Isopure (Multiple Flavors $50)

Isopure is another protein that we have used before because of its low and no carb factor.  The amount of carbs does depend on the flavor.  Isopure is gluten free, lactose free, sugar free and vegetarian.  The sodium count runs a little higher than others, but this one may work for you!

Try out our recipe below:

  • 2 scoops protein, unsweetened coconut milk, scoop almond butter, 1 banana, handful of walnuts, dash of cinnamon, ice and enjoy!

 

Well time to hit the gym, make our shake and get on our day! Leave a comment with which one you try out and enjoy this B-E-A-U-tiful day!

XOXO
