Simple and smooth plant-based protein thanks to Niyama Yoga Wellness

Niyama Yoga Wellness has a great new plant-based protein powder. This product thrives on its simplicity; it contains organic pea protein, natural vanilla flavour and 0 grams of sugar.

Protein shakes have many benefits whether after a workout or throughout the day. A post workout protein shake helps to rebuild, repair, and recover muscle fibres and promotes the growth of lean muscle mass. Don’t be scared of gaining lean muscle mass ladies! The more lean muscle mass you have, the higher your metabolism will be at rest and in activity; that means more fat loss!

On days when I teach a morning cardio class, I don’t want a full breakfast, so protein smoothies do the trick. The key is to fill it with a variety of ingredients in addition to the protein powder itself; mine usually consist of almond milk (calcium), a banana (potassium), and a handful of frozen fruit (carbohydrates). Super easy! This is also a good recipe for post workout; the carbohydrates in fruit help to replenish lost glycogen (the fuel that pushes you through a workout).

Since this protein powder is unsweetened (a good thing!), it can taste a little bitter on its own, so that’s another reason why it’s a good idea to mix it with many ingredients. Super ripe bananas are a fantastic natural sweetener. I also find the texture of this one to be nice and smooth, which is hard to come by among other plant-based powders. I highly recommend this versatile vanilla protein powder from Niyama Yoga Wellness! Give it a try!
