My favorite time of the day (other than when I am sleeping), is right after my killer workout when I get to whip up a protein smoothie, sit back and let my workout accomplishment sink in while I enjoy a yummy treat. Most people don’t think of a protein smoothie as a treat, but I do. I know it is a treat taste wise, and also a treat for my body as it is giving me the needed protein for my muscle and the nutrients my body needs after a hard workout. But, choosing the right protein powder these days is not an easy task. It is downright painful sometimes because there are so many on the market, and so many bad ones to boot!
I like to help my readers take the guess work out of shopping and when I had the chance to review Orgain – Organic Protein I was pumped (yes, pun intended). I enjoy seeing what is out there and when I find something I like, I love to share my thoughts. Well, I really like this one! Orgain Protein Powder has a smooth and creamy texture, which is hard to find in the protein powder world. That is a huge plus for me, as I hate feeling like I am drinking chalk! Orgain Protein Powder is also made from organic plant – based protein – including brown rice, hemp, chia, and pea protein. Again, a huge factor for me because I deal with IBS and most protein powders make me bloat really bad. That didn’t happen with Orgain. Now, keep in mind, everyone’s body is different and I am just telling you my results.
This product was created by Dr. Andrew Abraham. He was seeking high quality nutrition during his cancer treament years ago and that inspired him to develop delicious nutrition products with high quality organic ingredients. It is so awesome when someone can do their research to make sure the product they develop is of high standards. I look for that when buying any product these days.
There are many ways now days to get protein. Powders, bars, meat, shakes, etc. But, most taste horrible, have bad texture, or horrible after effects. Believe me.. I have had to run to the bathroom on more than one occasion due to a bad protein product. (TMI?) I use protein powders a few different ways and really like the flavor and how easily this mixes. I can do a smoothie with fruit, ice, and milk. Or, do a shake, with just milk and the powder. Or, add it to cookies, cake, bars, pancakes, dips, overnight oats, yogurt, and even.. coffee! Getting my protein daily can be so easy, when I use a supplement like Orgain Protein Powder, and it has 21g of protein which is great! You can get it in creamy chocolate fudge or sweet vanilla bean. I am enjoying the sweet vanilla bean, what would your choice be?
My smoothie recipe was 1 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup frozen bananas, Orgain Protein Powder and a few ice cubes. Blended, and enjoyed. I like my smoothies thick, so if you like them thinner you can add more milk, or less ice.
