Protein Powders

May 02, 2022

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the differences in protein powders ever since I released Protein Bakes, and I wanted to break down some key concepts and explain a few things.

 

 

1. Not all protein powders are created equal.

Are you not able to tolerate whey protein or are you just reacting to all the fillers, chemicals, additives, and low-quality whey? It’s likely the latter. It’s really important when you’re purchasing whey protein to ensure you’re getting the highest quality whey (from organic, grass-fed cows - ideally A2) and that it’s free of any additives, chemicals, sugar alcohols, sweeteners, or any other gut-damaging ingredients.

 

My preferred brand is Promix, as they source from organic, grass-fed A2 cows and are rigorously third-party tested for heavy metals, gluten, and any additives/contaminants. You can purchase it here and use the code FAMILY83 for 15% off!

Are You Getting Enough Protein?

Jun 20, 2021

 

 

I remember when I first hired a coach to work on changing my body composition. He sent me my daily protein target and I audibly gasped.

 

“What?? No way. Can’t do it.”

 

It was at least 3x the amount of protein I was currently having.  This was a few years ago when I was on a mostly plant-based diet and my protein intake was extremely low. I remember feeling extremely triggered and resistant - there was no way I could get that much protein.

 

It took me a while to get there, but when I finally understood the importance of getting enough protein - not only for my body composition but for my health - everything changed.

 

My body actually started changing. Without drastically cutting my calories. I felt satisfied. I had energy. And I wasn’t bloated all the time anymore.

 

Protein consumption is a topic I discuss with many of my clients and it’s one of the most important ones, after a general nutrient-dense diet....

Fudgy Protein Mug Cake

Jul 19, 2019

 

This Fudgy Protein Mug Cake is a quick and easy, protein-packed, and guilt-free sweet treat. And, it’s single-serving so you won’t overinduldge.

 

If you’ve been around for awhile now, you know just how strongly I feel about the importance of real food. Real, whole foods should always trump packaged, processed food, in my opinion. For example, I don’t believe in replacing high quality meats and veggies with protein powders or bars. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t use these products to supplement my whole food, nutrient-rich diet. Sometimes a girl needs a little sweet treat. You feel me? 

 

When I indulge in something sweet, I prefer using high-quality protein powder, instead of dense gluten-free or nut- based flours. I’ve noticed I tend to digest protein powder better, which might be true for you, too. Plus, it’s always helpful to consume an extra protein dose in my sweet treat.
