Do you dare find the magic bullet to turbo-charge your energy, heal your gut, and help you lose the pooch? It’s protein powder! I am so excited to share this secret weapon with you! I have been scanning the horizon for “what’s next and best” in the world of health products. Experimenting to see what really works, could be anyone’s full-time job! However, these treasures were all introduced to me by clients with incredible real-time results! However, I do not include anything in my practice or blog, that I haven’t tried out myself, and find worthy of whatever hype comes along. These both are winners.
Opti-Cleanse GHI Protein Powder, Sugar & Stevia-Free
I never leave home without a dry, pre-mixed protein powder shake. This saves me from reaching for something junky while starving, and stabilizes my blood sugar, High protein powders turned into delicious shakes, insures me of steady, all-day energy. I have probably experimented with 30 different protein powders in the last decade, while on the search for the perfect one. The challenge is that many protein powders are available. However, here are two that I adore.
If you find stevia too sweet, or wince at its occasional after-taste, the monk-fruit sweetened Opti-Cleanse GHI protein powder from Xymogen, will rock your world. It is so delicious, you only need add water and/or ice to make a scrumptious liquid meal. Just as bottled salad dressings add oodles of sugar, fat, and calories to green salads, many fruit-laden, nut-milk infused smoothies are not the low-calorie meal replacements thought they were. In my Summer Happy-Gut Makeover Cleanse, one of our goals was to clean up and lighten our smoothies. This rice-pea protein blend, with a whopping 26 grams of protein and zero grams of sugar, will skinny-up your shakes. It is chock-full of vitamins and minerals–bolstered with tumeric to reduce inflammation–and ginger and enzymes to assist with digestion. Yum!
Ultra Clear by Metagenics
One caveat. One of my clients discovered her sensitivity to guar gum, which Opti-Cleanse uses for fiber. Safe, however, you will find many items at the health food store with guar gum. However, if you are sensitive to guar gum, try my other favorite protein powder–Ultra Clear by Metagenics. I have used Ultra Clear for 24 years and I still love it! This rice protein powder, sweetened with rice syrup, is available in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. I am partial to vanilla. Ultra Clear was the first “milk” I put in my kids’ sippie cup after nursing, and they still love and drink it today.
