VANILLA VEGAN W/QUINOA SHAKE RECIPE & BENEFITS

Posted by LATOYA PAYNE on
Extend Nutrition - Vegan Shake Recipe + Plant Based Protein Benefits
We all know about protein in meat, seafood and whey shakes, but did you know that plant based protein can give you the needed daily source of protein? One of the misconceptions about plant-based diets is that they lack protein, however this is not only untrue but plant-based proteins have some fantastic health benefits. Mix those with a tasty delicious shake and you have one healthy protein filled meal replacement drink. 

What are the benefits of plant protein?

There are a total of 20 amino acids in protein. The human body can synthesize and create 11 of these. The remaining 9, known as essential amino acids, must come from your diet. A complete protein is one that contains all of these 9 essential amino acids, and there are several plant foods that have these including quinoa, which Extend Performance Vegan w/Quinoa Protein Powder has.

Plant protein provides the building blocks for healthy muscles, tissues and can be beneficial for weight loss. They are lower in calories and fat but higher in fiber and nutrients. Reduce your calorie intake and increase your daily nutrition. 


Why use our Vegan Protein Powder with Quinoa formula?

It’s a low carb protein powder that can be used for protein shakes, meal replacement drinks, many different types of recipes, before/during exercise to guarantee no bonk and improve post workout recovery.
