When I started the new year I did so with a renewed vow to stay on track with my healthy lifestyle. In years gone by I’ve made similar vows but found myself slipping slowly but surely back into old habits that weren’t beneficial to my mind or my body. This year I’ve done great staying on track so far and hope to continue doing so with the help of my workout regime, healthy diet and the support of my family and friends. That was until Jan 15th, when I fell off my front steps and broke my ankle (Bimalleolar Ankle Fracture). But, even though my workouts came to an abrupt stop, my need for healthy nutrition did not. Thank goodness I have my PCN (Pure Charge Nutrition) to help me with my proper nutrition needs while being laid up. As you know, when you are down for the count with an injury eating isn’t really top of your priority. I love shakes, and being able to fuel my body with proper nutrition was very key. Anyone can Fuel Your Lifestyle Naturally with PCN Protein Powder
Pure Charge Nutrition is dedicated to providing all natural, performance supplements the way they’re meant to be: healthy, natural and purposeful. Created by founder Igor, who has a background in lifestyle coaching, nutritional guidance and personal training, PCN was founded as stepping stone in his journey to become healthier. He realized that he needed to change his diet and started by cutting out meat and dairy products, two parts of his diet that were negatively effecting his overall performance.
Making the switch from dairy based supplements to plant based was difficult at first being as how most plant based supplements weren’t very palatable but it was with that in mind that Igor decided to create his own plant based supplements that were free from artificial additives, colors, sweeteners and flavors. Unlike other brands and supplements that used those components in their formulas, Igor wanted his supplements to be a premium alternative that was all natural and clean.
When I was given the opportunity to partner with Pure Charge Nutrition, I was beyond thrilled. I wouldn’t turn anything down that had such a great reputation and that would ultimately add me in living the healthy lifestyle I was seeking.
The Vanilla Bean Complete Plant Protein supplement is a fabulous way to get the fuel you need, no matter where life takes you. It tastes great and is easily digested, with a whopping 21 grams of proprietary plant based protein. With just 110 calories per serving, you can enjoy this tasty drink guilt free all while knowing the good you’re doing your body while doing so. The Vanilla Bean is great alone, or with some fruit added to it for a refreshing summery smoothie. My favorite is adding some banana and blueberries, (frozen ones), or adding in a couple slices of oranges and grapefruits.. YUM!! Talk about feeling like I am on a beach somewhere when drinking that one.
Like the Vanilla Bean, the Dark Cocoa Complete Plant Protein has 21 grams of protein and is a great aid in keeping yourself going during a busy day. Rich in pea and brown rice proteins that supply a complete amino acid profile, you can rest easy knowing you’ve made the switch from regular supplements to these palatable plant based ones. My favorite way to drink the chocolate is with half a frozen banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Amazing!!! But, I also love it mixed with a bit of instant coffee, and a splash of peppermint essential oil. That is totally a heavenly way to wake up and get ready for the day. And, while I was laid up it also lifted my spirits. Very refreshing.
Even though I am not using these right now to fuel my workouts or recover from them, I am loving my shakes and feel they are giving me what I need to recover from this horrible accident. I never in my life have broken a bone, so this really is a huge upset for me. Not being able to workout.. ack.. it’s killing me!! But, when I am able to start again.. I know PCN will be there !
