No Whey! A Paleo Protein Powder Option
Since starting Crossfit over eighteen months ago I’ve been getting more and more serious about eating a paleo diet. Crossfit and paleo go hand in hand and both have been working great for me with fantastic results. As I get more strict about eating paleo I find myself looking more closely at the food I eat and their ingredients. I've become much more aware of the things that are not paleo-friendly, like supplements.
Protein Powder Supplements
Whether you're doing Crossfit, hiking, trail running, or a serious athlete, adding a little extra protein to your diet will help you build muscle and burn more fat. The most convenient way to do that is by adding a scoop of protein powder to your smoothie or food. Unfortunately, nearly all commercially prepared protein powders are not only not Paleo, they tend to contain all sorts of additives.
Whey protein powders are probably the most commonly available, but whey is a by-product of the cheese making process and therefore dairy, and Soy (soy protein powder), well is just plain bad for you in so may ways.
If you are trying to stay paleo, your protein powder options are extremely limited. That's why I was excited to discover PaleoPro Protein powder which is made from just eggs and beef!
Mixing and Taste
Most of the time I throw a scoop of PaleoPro protein powder in my Blender Bottle with a cup of almond milk and shake for a quick boost after a workout. I prefer the Ancient Cacoa (chocolate) flavor paleo protein powder which may seem slightly bitter at first if you're used to the usual sugary-sweet chocolate whey powders. It mixes easily though and tastes much smoother using almond milk than just water. Sometimes I'll throw half a scoop of PaleoPro in with my paleo oatmeal breakfast.
