Let’s talk about protein powders! Protein powder is extracted from animal or plant-based sources. It is classified as a dietary supplement which means protein powder should not be your body’s only source of protein.
Protein is essential to the body because it is one of the main contributors to body tissue and being a fuel source. Eating high protein foods can help you stay fuller longer and avoid snacking.
In the past, I didn’t want to use protein powder because I didn’t want to be putting chemicals into my body when I was a clean eater. I thought it would reverse my progress in a healthy diet. I was right. As I learned more about exercising and nutrition I realized that 1. I needed to incorporate more protein into my diet and 2. I needed protein after my workouts because protein repairs and build muscle. I still didn’t want to be putting chemicals into my body so I researched to see if there were any companies that made plant-based protein powder. Well, I found one called Orgain Clean Nutrition.
I have used Orgain products for two years now and have introduced it to my family. We all agree it is the best plant-based protein powder compared to others we have tried because it doesn’t have the chalky texture like others and is a lot more affordable.
The founder of Orgain has an incredible story about beating cancer and how it led to realizing the world needed chemical-free protein shakes. I highly recommend reading about it.
