HOW TO HAVE A PROTEIN-FILLED HEALTHY PLANTBASED BREAKFAST

Hi Guys! Hope you are all having a wonderful day. In this post I want so share some of my thoughts on plantbased protein.

As someone who doesn’t consume a lot of animal products, one of my main concerns when it comes to diet, is ensuring I get enough healthy protein.

Protein is essential to a healthy diet as protein is an important component of every cell in the body.

Benefits of Protein:

  • Builds & repairs tissue
  • Protein makes enzymes, hormones, body chemicals
  • Important building blocks of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood
  • Help to grow healthy and nails.

That’s why I have been loving Prana Protein. They have a range of products full of healthy protein with lots of vegan choices.  Things that I absolutely love like hemp and pea protein powder, spirulina and chia seeds.

I like to have protein in my breakfast as it gives me lots of energy and keeps me full for hours. Having a good healthy breakfast really sets you up for the day.

Here are two ways I enjoy Prana Protein for a healthy breakfast


Recipe – Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup almond milk (more if you want a less thick smoothie)
  • Handful of spinach
  • 2 tbsp of Prana Protein Pea Powder

Method

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth
  2. Pour into a bowl and add any desired toppings.

Recipe- Double Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding:

  1. Place all ingredients except for toppings in a bowl and mix together
  2. Pour mixture into a jar or glass container and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to let gel.
  3. When ready to eat, add your toppings and enjoy

    These both look beautiful. I prefer to get my protein from food apposed to powders and supplements , My favorite is adding cottage cheese to smoothies , but this is great for people who do.
