Another Protein Powder for Smoothies You May Not Have Considered
I love smoothies. I make them quite often; when we make them ourselves we know exactly what’s going into the blender and we can ensure they’re not only completely Paleo, they’re also balanced in terms of the macro nutrient ratio of roughly 40/30/30.
Where else, aside from home, are you going to find a smoothie made of kale, green tea, ginger, turmeric, fresh, raw egg, blueberries and avocado? (Just one of my many concoctions I make using completely unprocessed Paleo foods!).
I’ve written before as well that when I travel, I rely on an all-egg protein powder to use in a smoothie before a race, for example. Until recently, this was the only Paleo friendly protein option as most other powders- dairy/whey, soy, rice, pea- don’t fit within the Paleo guidelines.
About a month or so ago, I learned of a great product which uses egg and beef as their protein source, which I tried and thought was delicious!
However, it still seemed to be an issue for clients who were either allergic to eggs or had an auto immune disease and were testing whether eggs worked for them or not, or simply didn’t like eggs period.
I am happy to tell you that this is no longer the case.
I just learned about Amino Marine which uses as their protein source: FISH!
Now wait one second before you wrinkle your nose, thinking it would taste like putting a can of tuna in the vitamix with your berries and avocado and spinach.
It does not taste remotely fishy.
On Sunday, I tested it out for myself and made a shake after a long run with coconut water, banana and a scoop of their plain protein, along with some ice.
Not only was it delicious, it had a velvety smooth consistency that I haven’t seen with other proteins.
Plus, the health benefits we reap from eating fish peptides are seemingly endless.
The company uses responsible, sustainable methods to make their product, too, sourcing their proteins from only wild fish.
Truly, a must-have in your pantry for those in a pinch times.
