Straight Outta Savasana
So what are Protein Shakes? Protein Shakes are a blended drink resembling a milkshake that contains high levels of protein. These shakes are usually made with frozen fruit/ice, a protein source such as protein powder, and a liquid. Protein shakes are an excellent thing to drink after a workout to help your muscles properly recover. In addition to post-workout, protein shakes can be used as a high-protein snack.
Straight Outta Savasana is blended with
- Cacao Powder
- Peanut Butter
- Chia Seeds
- Vegan Vanilla Protein powder
Bananas are high in potassium which maintains fluid levels in the body, regulates the movement of nutrients and water in and out of cells, and aids in the contraction of muscles. They are also a slow-release energy food, making them incredibly filling, despite the low calorie content. Bananas have been proven to assist with preventing + restoring memory loss, controling blood pressure and reducing the risk of a heart attack or stroke. This super-fruit can even boost your mood!
The ultimate superfood and the key ingredient in the treat we all love - chocolate! Cacao powder is packed with flavonoids. These nutrients have been shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, and aid in preventing blood clots.
Dates are particularly rich in vitamins A, B6, and K. Those vitamins promote bone growth and improve eye health. Additionally, dates contain calcium, iron, potassium, protein, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and sulfur, enhancing overall body function. For example, they may support a healthy pregnancy and regulate cholesterol levels.
As well as being filling and delicious it is rich in several nutrients, including protein and magnesium, which may help protect the heart and manage blood sugar and body weight.
They may be tiny, but they are mighty! Chia seeds are incredibly nutritious, low in carbohydrates and high in fibre. They are loaded with antioxidants and minerals including calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Chia seeds lower your risk of heart disease and reduce chronic inflamation. Their size makes them super easy to add to any smoothie/yoghurt bowl, but don't be fooled, once in your tummy, they expand slightly, helping to feel full.
Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder:
Protein is an essential macronutrient. It builds muscles, repairs tissues and aids in production of enzymes and hormones. Using protein powder may assist with weight loss as well as building, toning and maintaining muscle. Our protein powders are plant based so perfect for Vegans too!
