Most people assume that meat, poultry, eggs and dairy are the best ways to get your protein fix, but there are plenty of other non-animal products that are packed with healthy vegan protein.
Blue herbs offer various different options such as the RAW Protein by Garden Of Life. RAW Protein is low in fat and an excellent product to add to your meals or beverages to increase your protein intake and is gluten and dairy free!
RAW Protein is also suitable for those with gastrointestinal sensitivities to milk, whey, soy or other protein sources and makes an excellent refreshing, high protein energy shake or smoothes.
If you wander what ‘raw’ actually means – these are food sources that have not been cooked or treated with any type of heat. Raw or living foods contain vital enzymes that aid in absorption and digestion of foods but disappear when we cook or heat the foods above 105 degrees. By choosing raw protein you are bringing only the natural ingredients into your body.
Raw Protein features 13 raw and organic sprouts and provides 17 grams of protein or 33% of the daily value. Not only are you getting the daily intake of protein, but you also will receive other vitamins and minerals that are essential for your body to function.
Amazing Grass has also come up with a great source of vegan protein in their Whole Food Energy Bars. These nutritious and tasty bars provide vegans with an alternative to snacking on nuts and seeds.
This blend combines nutrient dense green food concentrates with super fruits like acai berry, the powerful purple berry from the Amazon Rainforest, high in antioxidants, protein and healthy omegas. There is also added mace, the amazing adaptagenic root grown at high altitudes in Peru that is known to provide sustained energy and support vitality.
The Amazing Grass Energy Bars combine the best-selling and alkalizing Organic Green Super Food drink powder with antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables to create a delicious and healthy treat.
As well as being delicious and a great source of vegan protein, they are also extremely practical. You can use them as a healthy snack or almost as a meal replacement especially if you are on-the-go, backpacking, travelling or on a long commuting journey.
