I have finally found a protein shake that I actually enjoy, so I just thought I would share it with you. I’m pretty picky when it comes to shakes because I find that a lot them leave a bit of an aftertaste or they make me feel nauseous. My newly beloved Arbonne Protein Shake Mix is vegan and gluten-free certified. It has 20 grams of vegan protein and over 20 essential vitamins and minerals per serving. It comes in two flavours, chocolate and vanilla, but of course, my favourite is chocolate 🙂
Why have a protein shake?
There are many benefits such as weight control because protein shakes can help control your fat and calorie intake. It also helps with portion control since each serving size has controlled portions of calories, fat, protein and carbohydrates.
Protein shakes help to build and rebuild muscle. Muscle tissue will break down with resistance training and even everyday use. Your body needs protein to help with the rebuilding process. Depending on the type of protein, when in liquid form it enters your blood system faster. For example, Whey Protein Isolate is highly soluble and absorbed by the body more quickly than other proteins. Whey Protein Concentrate has a lower biological value than whey protein isolate. It has the same benefits as whey protein isolate version, but less efficiently.
Protein shakes are convenient because it reduces the time consuming process of food preparation when you’re crunched for time.
Protein shakes give you an opportunity to creatively add many other nutrients to your meal. You can add frozen fruit, ground flaxseeds, natural peanut butter or anything of your choosing. Try a few different combinations and see what you like! #healthbeautyandopportunity
