Whether you’re a vegan, an omnivore or just trying to cut back on the meat in your diet, there’s no doubt that protein is an essential part of our daily lives. But, in recent years, there’s been a major shift from traditional whey and animal-based proteins to plant-based alternatives. And, with a growing awareness around climate change, many people are now looking for ways to make their diets more environmentally friendly.
Fortunately, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to finding a high-quality vegan protein powder. From shakes to smoothie bowls, these healthy snacks can be added to any meal of the day – and can help you achieve your recommended daily intake of protein without compromising on taste or nutrition.
The Clear Vegan Protein, for example, is a market-leading vegan protein powder that contains 10g of quality hydrolysed pea protein per serving. This is a highly digestible form of protein that’s low in calories and free from all added sugars – making it perfect for a morning shake or any time you want to enjoy a refreshing smoothie without the guilt!
Another great way to get your protein fix is with a nutrient-packed superfood blend. A blend like HempPRO, for example, combines a high-quality hemp protein isolate with a host of nutrient-dense superfoods and herbs. These include acerola cherry powder (25% vitamin C), alfalfa, chlorella, cinnamon, dandelion root, fenugreek, green tea powder (40% polyphenols), parsley leaf, spinach and spirulina.
Aside from the protein, these superfoods and herbs are rich in antioxidants and phyto-nutrients to support your immune system, digestive health and cellular wellbeing. Plus, it’s a fantastic source of fibre and iron to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
It’s worth noting that plant-based proteins are also better for your gut microbiome than animal-based ones. Because they’re typically lower in fat and higher in fibre, they’re less likely to disrupt your gut bacteria by causing excess fermentation. In turn, this supports a balanced metabolism and a healthy, resilient microbiome.
With these benefits in mind, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t consider adding a vegan protein powder to your daily routine. And with so many delicious recipes to try, you’re sure to find a protein shake that you love.
