Why is protein so important to our health?

The single most important antioxidant in the body is called glutathione and it is made directly from protein. 

Restrict your protein and you risk excessive aging due to low antioxidant production. And here is an important fact- you can’t replace glutathione with other antioxidants like vitamin C. Glutathione has a specific role in protecting your body and only it can perform that protective role. 

Your immune system helps fight infections and to do this it uses specific types of immune-boosting proteins. Consuming high-quality protein can be a nice boost to your immune system. Without it, your immune system would shut down and you would likely become ill from bacterial or viral infections.

Chocolate Cherry Chia Protein Bars made with Complete Whey Protein, dark chocolate, raw almonds, dried cherries and chia seeds!

We made a batch of delicious Chocolate Cherry Chia Protein Bars. Great for breakfast or a quick snack to satiate your hunger! 

So easy to make! This is a No bake recipe with NO Added sugar. Just blend and form the batter into a square to cut into smaller portions or roll into balls:

1 cup of raw almonds

4 scoops of Complete Whey Protein in the Delicious Chocolate flavor

2 Tbsp. of Chia Seeds

1/4 cup of dried cherries

1/4 cup of dark chocolate bitties

2 Tbsp. of Coconut oil

Sprinkle with Himalayan Sea Salt right before serving!

Homemade Protein bars made with Complete Whey Protein, raw almonds, chia seeds, dark chocolate and cherries!

Health Benefits of this recipe include:

The cacoa found in dark chocolate is full of anti-oxidants and serotonin, a natural antidepressant. 

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Chia seeds help detoxify the body and aid in weight loss.

Chia seeds contain Omega 3 Fatty acids and help dieters feel full longer. 

Chia Seeds contain complex carbohydrates that are absorbed slowly and metabolized over a long time so you feel satisfied for longer periods of time.


When a chia seed is exposed to water, it forms a coating of gel, increasing its size and weight. Since the gel is made of water, it has no calories. It’s also difficult to remove from the seed, meaning that it helps your body think it is full, without adding calories!

Keeping balanced levels of blood sugar is important for both health and energy. Both the gelling action of the seed, and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber combine to slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars. If you eat chia with a meal, it will help you turn your food into constant, steady energy rather than a series of ups and downs that wear you out.

Raw Almonds are a SUPER FOOD. Almonds contain: Protein, Dietary and Insoluble Fiber, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Folate, Vitamin B, Biotin, Potassium, Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium and Phosphorous.

Medjool Dates
are full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. They contain B Vitamins, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Folate, Manganese and Calcium. They help keep your bones strong and your digestive system healthy! They add great flavor as well as being a natural sweetener. Their gooey texture is ideal for creating healthy snacks you can take on the go.


Coconut oil
contains fatty acids which help boost brain function, contains Lauric acid which is highly anti-microbial, and can help you lose weight by reducing abdominal fat.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

Dried cherries are a great source of natural fiber, potassium, copper, protein, iron, and carbohydrates. The red coloring in cherries contains anthocyanin which is a powerful antioxidant which prevents free radicals from damaging our cells.

Dried Cherries
are great for your immune system as they contain vitamins A,C & E.


Raw Whey Protein can help replace fat with lean muscle which leads to a higher metabolism and increased energy.

Raw whey protein is an excellent source of cysteine, the precursor of Glutathione which is the most abundant antioxidant in the body that protects us from damage due to toxins and free radicals.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bite Sized Snacks

Health Benefits of this recipe:

Pumpkins are low in calories and high in fiber which helps us feel fuller longer and keeps our appetite at bay.

The orange color of pumpkins tells us that they are filled with the antioxidant beta-carotene, which is one of the plant carotenoids converted to Vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for healthy, glowing skin, strong eyesight, and our immune system.

Pumpkins are rich in iron which helps make hemoglobin and transports oxygen throughout your body.

Pumpkins are low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. Pumpkins are also a good source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Xylitol is a great sugar substitute that breaks down in the body slower without causing sugar spikes. This is an ideal sweetener for Diabetics.

Ceylon Cinnamon may help treat Type 2 Diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing the amount of insulin production in the body.

Almond butter is a great source of protein, folate, and is low in cholesterol and saturated fats, and it contains no trans-fats.

Almond butter is rich in monounsaturated fats, which are the type of fats that reduce levels of cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease.

Coconut flour has a moderate effect on blood sugar which makes this a healthier option for diabetic sufferers.

Complete Whey Protein is a great protein formula for muscle building and strength, workout recovery, weight loss, improved energy, healthy digestion and immune boosting.

Health Benefits of this recipe:

Steel Cut Oats are extremely high in fiber. Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber which means the soluble fiber helps us eliminate waste and the insoluble fiber helps us digest slowly which makes us feel full and satiated longer.

One key component in oats is a nutrient called Beta-Glucan which lowers cholesterol levels, boosts heart health and builds your body's immunity!

We are constantly consuming toxins, whether it is from drinks or food, and your liver is responsible for clearing these toxins out of your body. One of the best and easiest waist help detoxify your liver is a diet rich in fruits like apples.

Many health problems are associated with being overweight, among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. To manage your weight and improve your overall health, doctors recommend a diet rich in fiber. Foods high in fiber will fill you up without costing you too many calories. This recipe is an excellent example of a meal that is extremely high in fiber and will keep you from feeling hunger for hours.

In addition to the high fiber content of apples, they also contain Quercetin- a flavonoid antioxidant which keeps your heart healthy, reduces high blood pressure and helps prevent cancers.

Spices such as ginger and turmeric are both packed full of vitamins and minerals which help with digestion and are anti-inflammatory foods which help combat most every disease known to man.

Coconut oil contains fatty acids which help boost brain function, contains Lauric acid which is highly anti-microbial, and can help you lose weight by reducing abdominal fat.

Medjool dates are an excellent source of energy and our loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals such as Potassium, Magnesium, B-6 vitamins and copper. All of these nutrients help with regulation of blood pressure and a healthy nervous system!

Complete Whey Protein is quite simply the best, no-compromise, whey protein on the market. It is a great protein formula for muscle building and strength, workout recovery, weight loss, improved energy, healthy digestion and immune boosting.
