This is a simple, nutritious breakfast on the go. The small amount of calories won’t break a fast if you are intermittent fasting and it’s protein-packed.

A few things to consider regarding protein powders:

  • Type
  • How many grams of protein?

Type of protein powder. It’s important! Go plant-based. Here’s why:

  1. Look at the ingredient list. This is where you will find the source of protein.
    • Not all proteins are the same. Whey protein is popular but is a milk or dairy by-product and can cause belly bloat and inflammation. Avoid Premier Protein at all costs. Collagen is a sustainability issue for me. It comes from the bone marrow of cows unless it’s plant-based. Where are these cows raised? How are they fed and treated? How many cows does it take to make collagen powder?
  2. GO PLANT-BASED: Your body utilizes the protein with ease. No bloating. No problem. Recommendations: Pea Protein. You won’t taste it I promise.
    • Orgain Vanilla
    • Plant Fusion

Second grams of protein: 1 scoop is around 10 -11 grams of protein which is all you need for the morning.
Keep in mind your body will utilize plant-based protein more efficiently so no need for the high amount in most protein powders. Plus you are going to snack in a few hours right?
