5 benefits of taking protein in powder form
1. It’s convenient
What could be more convenient than mixing up a protein shake? It takes seconds, and you’ve got high-quality protein source ready to go. While we are the first to champion home cooking as the first step towards a healthy lifestyle, sometimes you just don’t have the time to grill those organic chicken breasts before you’re out the door. For these times, a protein shake is perfect.
2. It’s effective
The ingredients found in protein powders is microfiltered several times until a highly concentrated protein is left behind.9 As a result, just one scoop of protein powder contains around 25g protein. You’d have to munch through plenty of whole food to get the same amount of protein you’d find in just a few sips of protein shake.
3. It tastes good
Not everyone has a large appetite or enjoys the taste of protein-rich foods. Protein shake are perfect if you struggle to eat large portions, as you can top up your protein intake while enjoying delicious flavours such as vanilla or strawberry.
4. It’s low-calorie protein
Good protein powders are low in fat and calories. Made with water, a protein shake contains around 120kcal – 150kcal, while their protein content makes them filling. Low calorie, filling food and drink is important if you’re on a weight loss journey.
5. It’s easy
When dieting, it can be so easy to slip off the wagon and turn to convenience or fast food when faced with an empty fridge. Mixing up a protein shake at the same time each day helps keep you on track with your weight loss.
