I have heard a lot of people complaining about other people that use protein powder. They usually have a disgusted expression and state that bodybuilders use these.
The main thing to remember is that protein powder is used to provide the body with more protein, something the body needs for optimum nutrition. There are lots of arguments against using protein powders in a healthy diet. But you cannot argue against the fact that it does fill you up and if consumed the right way, it can allow you to control your weight a little better. Additionally, most of us already know that protein is needed for healthy skin, nails, hair and various other features of the body.
These are the reasons that I try to have a protein smoothie every morning for breakfast. After all, this will provide you with essential nutrients while also preventing you from overeating later on in the day. Just bear in mind that you will need the best smoothie blender if you want the best tasting smoothie.
I usually try different recipes but here are some of my favorite ones.
Power Smoothie: My power smoothie is the one that I have most often. This is because it contains incredibly healthy ingredients such as kale. I do not really like the taste of kale so I try to cover this up by adding some berries and even a medium sized banana. I try to add some hemp protein powder as this is known to be very healthy. Some additional ingredients I have tried include chia seeds, cinnamon and flaxseeds for their own individual benefits.
