Perfectly Paleoista Smoothie Recipe
One of the most popular categories in the sports nutrition genre is protein shakes, hands down. But if you pop into your local GNC or even health food store, the chances of finding anything suitable in terms of powders with which to create a healthy, balanced meal are slim to none.
Granted, all powders are, by definition, processed and subsequently not as Paleo as a piece of wild salmon or grass fed beef.
However, if you are in a pinch and need a better option than a soy protein isolate or a corn-syrup laden brand of another powder, using an egg or beef protein is a viable option.
Even better, if you have access to local, farm fresh eggs, and are comfortable consuming them raw, here’s the easiest manner of keeping it Paleo.
Alternatively, you can always soft boil for 6 – 8 minutes which will help to boil off some of the potentially dangerous bacteria but keep it runny enough to blend well.
