Just blend 1 scoop of Complete Paleo Protein in the delicious Chocolate Flavor into 8 oz. of water and then heat until warm and steamy in a saucepan. That's it!

What is the keto diet?

When we eat a low carbohydrate diet we have raised ketone levels in our system. Ketones are the byproducts of the breakdown of fat which is a normal process in the human body. Mostly everyone has excess fat in their bodies which makes this an extremely readily available energy source that we can utilize rather than relying on a high carbohydrate and sugar diet which can lead to obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.

One of the great things about the keto diet is that you will experience more energy and better mental focus. Our bodies use fat as the energy source rather than sugar on the keto diet causing less fatigue, less brain fog, more appetite control and reduced cravings. Weight loss, lower blood pressure, increased heart healthy HDL (good) cholesterol, increase energy levels and reduced blood sugar levels are all positive effects of following a keto diet.

Complete Pea Protein is a great plant-based vegetarian protein source for athletes and anyone who is physically active.

Complete Pea Protein is easy to digest, a distinct advantage over other vegetable protein isolates, as it does not contain the commonly occurring "anti-nutrients" of soy or other legumes. The presence of high levels of these anti-nutrients found in other plant based proteins can cause substantial reductions in nutrient absorption and protein digestion. 

Complete Pea Protein is a 100% VEGAN protein source made from North American grown yellow peas. Complete Pea Protein is a natural, non-GMO, pea protein which offers a high quality vegetable based protein with excellent digestibility. 

This protein is ideal for those who are looking for a high quality vegetarian/vegan protein powder or for those interested in a dairy-free alternative to whey protein.

Complete Pea Protein has an amino acid profile that is similar to that of whey protein. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements often missing in the lower protein, vegetarian diet.
