Vegan protein powder

By 180 Nutrition

vegan protein powderThere are so many hidden ingredients in all kinds of different food, it’s impossible to be vegan without reading all the ingredients listed on the back of each item. Unfortunately, this can come as a shock to many who realize just how many artificial flavorings and other chemicals are being pumped into everything, including supplements. Which can make finding a quality vegan protein powder difficult. These days, even an apple is coated with wax before it’s purchased.

Vegans learn not only to avoid animal products, but also to learn more about which food items are best for the body. What they’re finding is that, the more natural the product is, the better it makes them feel after eating it.

While most vegans don’t have a problem reaching their recommended vitamin intake levels, it can be a challenge for some to get the recommended level of protein each day. There are many artificial meat products that can be bought to help with this, but all these contain dozens of chemicals. Tofu, nuts, and beans are other options, but there’s only so much you can do with those foods. It’s that exact reason that so many people are turning to a vegan protein powder.

Nearly all protein powder on the market today contains whey. Since whey comes from cows, vegans are unable to consume it. Fortunately, 180 Nutrition has released a new vegan protein powder that is not only completely animal free, but also all natural as well.

The vegan protein supplement consists of 12 different ingredients. These include pea protein, flax seed, almond meal, sunflower kernels, coconut flour, cocoa flavoring, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, psyllium husk, inactive brewers yeast, and stevia.

Unlike other protein powders, there’s far more that can be done with 180 Nutrition than simply drinking it. Users can add the protein supplement to other meals, such as cereal, or make an entirely new meal with the dozens of recipes that can be viewed online. Best of all, the protein powder is actually tasty so users will enjoy using it.

If that’s not enough of a reason to try 180 Nutrition’s vegan protein powder, users can also view the nutritional information online. One serving of the protein powder alone contains 6 grams of fiber, 21 grams of protein, 12 grams of B vitamin, 335 grams of potassium, 66 grams of calcium, and 112 grams of magnesium. All together, that equals one extremely healthy and delicious product.

While vegans aren’t the only one who can enjoy this protein supplement, 180 Nutrition also offers another version for those who can consume dairy. This version replaces the pea protein with grass fed whey to give users an extra gram of protein in every serving.

Great tasting paleo snacks

The paleo diet, also known as the Stone Age or cavemen diet, has been gaining popularity recently as a way to help individual lose weight, with an ever increasing need for alternative paleo snack ideas. The concept is simple. Since cavemen weren’t overweight, humans today should consume the same food that their ancestors did. Since cavemen didn’t have high blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes, the theory is that the diet will help users shed unwanted pounds while also becoming more healthy in the process.

Unfortunately, that’s not always that easy. The cavemen consumed a high level of protein that’s almost impossible to achieve normally. Even for those who are able to reach the recommended levels, the price can add up quickly. Even worse, most protein supplements that could be used to help dieters are loaded with artificial flavoring, colors, or other chemicals, none of which were consumed during the Stone Age.

Fortunately, 180 Nutrition is dedicated to providing their customers with an all natural protein powder that can be used in any diet. While the powder isn’t specifically designed for the paleo diet, it meets all the requirements. Everything in the powder is all natural and there’s only 12 ingredients, none of which are chemically altered. These ingredients include grass fed whey, flax seed, almond meal, sunflower kernels, coconut flour, cocoa flavoring, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, psyllium husk, inactive brewers yeast, and stevia.

While the protein supplement can be blended to create a vegetable or fruit smoothie, that’s not the only paleo snack that can be made. The powder can also be cooked with or added to other meals to help increase the amount of protein the food contains. For those who aren’t natural chefs, that’s okay too. 180 Nutrition has dozens of easy to follow recipes on their website. These recipes include everything from paleo snacks to meals that can be made in less than three minutes.

While most people assume that paleo snacks have to be meat, veggies, or nuts, that’s not the case when using 180 Nutrition’s protein powder. The paleo diet means that users must limit their sugar intake level. This can lead to unbearable cravings that can wreck the entire dieting process plan.

180 Nutrition understands that users may crave something sweet instead of the same boring meat or nut products, and that’s why they’ve created several great tasting, yet still all-natural, paleo snacks. Some of the most popular include high protein chocolate chip cookies and high protein blueberry muffins.

Both recipes are easy to follow and can be made with just a few ingredients. Since the paleo diet doesn’t allow white flour, almond flour and protein powder are used instead. This results in a very tasty and very healthy snack that all ages can enjoy.
