One thing I’ve been working on this summer is getting more protein into my diet. Although I do eat meat, I’m not a huge fan of eating it everyday. Until I start eating more eggs, beans and fish, the easiest way for me to get protein is to incorporate protein powder into my smoothies (and baked goods). When looking at protein powders, I have a few “must-haves” and Nuzest certainly fits the bill. Here are five reasons why I highly recommend Nuzest protein powder.
So many protein powders are full of junk, and calories, which can be more harmful than good. Nuzest Clean Lean Protein is all natural, plant-based and allergen free. It’s also gluten, dairy and soy free and non-GMO. It makes me feel good knowing that I’m not only getting extra protein in my diet, but good, clean protein
Great Tasting Flavors
Nuzest protein powder comes in five flavors – creamy cappuccino, just natural, rich chocolate, smooth vanilla and wild strawberry. I’ve tried all of these flavors and the wild strawberry was by far my favorite! I’m also a big fan of the just natural because sometimes you don’t need flavor from a protein powder if you use different fruits in your smoothies.
Sample the Flavors
There’s nothing worse that buying a huge tub of protein powder and then realizing that you just don’t like that flavor. That has happened to me a few times! Nuzest offers the Clean Lean Starter Pack which contains a packet of each flavor (except for just natural). This was the first way i was introduced to Nuzest and it was great because it helped me make the right choice when I selected tube of the protein.
Each flavor of Nuzest protein powder has less than 100 calories per serving. If you’re watching your weight, or trying to lose weight, this is fantastic! I can start off my morning with a smoothie with Nuzest protein powder, spinach and fruit and keep it under 200 calories. That’s a win-win situation in my book!
Nuzest has some great recipes on their website. Although I have a standard smoothie recipe that I use on most days, sometimes it’s good to mix it up a little bit! Check out their recipe for Cheery Cherry Protein Sorbet – can you say yum!
