[Mmm...Monday] Jarrow Formulas Plant Protein Pre-Workout Smoothie Recipe
Jarrow Formulas sent me their latest Organic Plant Protein, a great vegetarian and vegan alternative to the standard protein powders made of milk-based proteins like whey and casein! A scoop of the powder contains 18 grams of protein and is a quick and easy way for me to get a pre-workout meal in. The organic sources of plant protein include quinoa, sunflower, hemp, pea, sacha inchi, and coix, which all provide a complete amino acid profile! The Organic Plant Protein comes in three flavors, and the Salted Caramel and Chocolate Mocha are delicious, even with a little almond milk! Plus, it is free of gluten, added sugars, and GMOs.
Here is a concoction that I like to make with Jarrow Formulas Organic Plant Protein in my favorite flavor, Salted Caramel. I add a few extra ingredients to the mix, so that my body gets an adequate amount of calories, protein, and carbohydrates for my workout!
