As you can see, I have a preoccupation with creating protein snacks.
I find that I am on the run a lot and HATE taking pre-prepared food that requires a knife and fork. While a lot of people would debate that my desire to use raw protein powders, kind of goes against the whole ‘whole nutrition’ thing, I see a good quality protein powder as added insurance that my body gets enough protein, since I weight train on a fairly consistent basis.
I am also aware of the realities of most store bought snacks and believe these to be the lesser of two evils for the every day on-the-go girl/guy.
So yes- while real food would be a beautiful slow roast piece of lamb, served on a bed of wilted greens- I am quite sure no one has the capacity at work to bring in haute cuisine Monday-Friday.
Plus I like to bake.
A good protein powder is super easy to digest, doesn’t leave you bloated and a has a great amino acid profile to ensure your body can easily escort all those nasty city consumed toxins we receive on a daily basis.
That’s right – in order to get toxins out of your body you need amino acids. And where are amino acids? They are in protein.
So what are you waiting for? Get back in the kitchen and start making a mess.
