Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie September 5, 2019 14:59 46 Comments

Fresh end of summer pears blended with our high quality protein powders from RawWheyProtein.com!

We love making our smoothies with fresh fruits that are available each season. End of summer means fresh pears are ready to pick off the trees and are added directly into a delicious smoothie full of antioxidants, electrolytes and fiber.

Pears are a low-glycemic fruit that won't spike your blood sugar. They are full of electrolytes like copper and magnesium. Pears are also a great source of Vitamin C and Potassium!

To make our delicious Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie blend these ingredients together:

3 ripe pears with seeds and stem removed

1 scoop of Creamy Vanilla Complete Whey Protein Powder

Dash of Ceylon Cinnamon

Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt

2 fresh or frozen apricots with pits removed (sub peaches if desired)

1 fresh or frozen banana

1 teaspoon of Freshly grated Ginger root

add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if desired

sprinkle Cinnamon and extra grated ginger on top after blending

for a Vegan smoothie sub Complete Pea Protein

for a Paleo smoothie sub Complete Paleo Protein

Pears are a great fruit that aids in weight loss. In addition to containing antioxidants like Vitamin C, pears are high in fiber, low in calories, high in water content and aid in digestion. 

Not only are pears delicious in smoothies, they are a great addition to salads.

We suggest one Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie in the morning blended with any of our Complete Protein Powders. For dinner: mix fresh arugula, spinach, grilled chicken, fresh pears, feta cheese and pecans. For dressing: blend olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh pears. Finish with salt and pepper. Yum!

Keto Hot Chocolate January 30, 2019 15:11 10 Comments

Keto Hot Chocolate made with Complete Paleo Protein in the delicious chocolate flavor!

It's one month into the New Year! We hope everyone's New Year's Resolutions are on track! One of the most comforting things you can do on a cold winter day is to drink a cup of hot chocolate! With this recipe you're getting a serving of high quality protein WITHOUT the big carb load. We have one of the most simple recipes for you to try: Keto Hot Chocolate!

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!

If desired, add a couple of spoonfuls of heavy whipping cream and a dash of Ceylon Cinnamon on top. We made our whipped cream with 4 Tablespoons of Xylitol and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and then whipped the cream mixture until fluffy.

What makes this a keto recipe? This Keto Hot Chocolate is low carb and high protein! Our Paleo Protein is a beef based protein sweetened with stevia and natural chocolate flavors. So you're getting delicious sweet chocolate flavor with very little carbohydrates. This keto recipe also has no added sugar!

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.

Strawberry Mousse February 12, 2018 18:33

Strawberry Mousse made with Creamy Vanilla Raw Whey Protein, fresh organic strawberries and coconut cream!

We love creating healthy dessert options that are incredibly easy to prepare! 

Our Strawberry Mousse is great for a quick breakfast, after workout snack or refreshing dessert!

Ingredients:

1 pound of Organic Strawberries

2 packets of unflavored gelatin

1 can of coconut cream

2 Tbsp. of xylitol (for added sweetness)

2 scoops of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla Flavor

1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt

Instructions:

1. Heat only the coconut cream, gelatin and xylitol in a saucepan on the stove on low heat just until the gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat.

2. Core the strawberries and blend.

3. Add the Complete Whey Protein and Greek Yogurt to the strawberry blend.

4. Add in the sweetened coconut cream-gelatin mixture.

5. Pour mixture into serving bowls or popsicle molds.

6. We used small heart shaped cookie cutters to make the strawberry garnish.

7. Refrigerate overnight.

Health Benefits of this recipe:

Strawberries are full of healthy antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol. They also contain vitamin C, folate, potassium, vitamin K, and magnesium.

Strawberries aid in weight management.

Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best defenses against type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Strawberries are naturally low calorie (around 28 kCal per serving), fat-free and low in both sodium and sugar.

The antioxidants found in strawberries help lower LDL cholesterol and reduce inflammation in the joints.

The potassium found in strawberries can help regulate blood pressure and may even help to lower high blood pressure by acting as a buffer against the negative effects of sodium.

Coconut cream is rich in iron which helps supply oxygen to your blood cells and magnesium which helps over active muscles relax.

Coconut cream contains many vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, including potassium, calcium and chloride.

The saturated fat in coconut is made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids the body quickly turns into energy instead of storing as fat which can aid in weight loss.

Xylitol is like sugar, except good for you. While sugar wreaks havoc on the body, xylitol heals and repairs. It also builds immunity, protects against chronic disease & has anti-aging benefits.

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

Gelatin is a SUPERFOOD that helps boost your energy!
Gelatin helps with digestive issues, helps soothe joint pain, helps repair skin, hair and nails and reverses inflammation!

Gelatin
is loaded with protein and can help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism. It also helps you feel fuller longer- a key to fat loss!

Greek yogurt
has twice the protein content of regular yogurts, is lower in lactose and contains probiotic cultures which are great for gut health.

Greek yogurt
 is an excellent source of 
calciumpotassiumproteinzinc, and vitamins B6 and B12.


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

Benefits of Raw Whey Protein include:

MUSCLE BUILDING

FAT LOSS

IMPROVED ENERGY

DIGESTIVE HEALTH

WORKOUT RECOVERY

IMMUNE BOOSTING

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

Drinking a Raw Whey Protein shake every day helps with weight loss by reducing fat and adding lean muscle.

Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream or Shake December 24, 2017 15:50

Mint Chocolate Chip shake made with fresh mint and Raw Whey Protein!

Our Mint Chocolate Chip recipe is made with fresh mint and can be served as either a delicious shake or healthier ice cream!

Ingredients:

1 can of coconut cream (we used Trader Joe's brand 13.5 oz can)

1 cup of raw cashews

3 Tbsp. of Maple Syrup

1 package of organic fresh mint (around 5 oz.)

3 frozen bananas

1 cup of Greek yogurt

2 scoops of Raw Whey Protein in the creamy vanilla flavor 

To make a vegan recipe, substitute whey protein for Complete Pea Protein!

To make a paleo recipe, substitute whey protein for Complete Paleo Protein!

pinch of Himalayan sea salt

4 drops of 100% Peppermint Oil (be careful! This stuff is potent!)

1 cup of dark chocolate chips

Instructions:

1. Soak the cashews overnight in the coconut cream with the fresh mint and maple syrup.

2. Blend all ingredients!

3. For a shake: drink right away! For ice cream: place in the freezer overnight!

Health Benefits of this recipe include:

Mint can help you lose weight, because it stimulates the digestion of fat! Mint stimulates the digestive enzymes that absorb nutrients from food and fat and turn it into usable energy. By adding mint to your diet, you are increasing the amount of fat that is being consumed and put to use, rather than being stored and contributing to weight gain.

Fresh Mint leaves alleviate gastrointestinal problems like gas, bloating and indigestion. 

Peppermint makes the flow of bile more efficient, which means that you digest your food more quickly, and it also helps relax the muscles in your digestive tract

Peppermint also contains another antioxidant called rosmarinic acid, which can help prevent and treat certain allergies and cancers.

Coconut cream contains many vitamins, minerals and electrolytes, including potassium, calcium and chloride.

The fat in coconut cream  is made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids the body quickly turns into energy instead of storing as fat which can aid in weight loss.

Half the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut cream are composed of lauric acid, which is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal.

Coconut cream can help boost the immune system.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, most of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus over half of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil. 

People who eat nuts at least twice a week are much less likely to gain weight than those who almost never eat nuts. Add raw nut butter to shakes and raw nuts on top of salads for added healthy protein!

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

Drinking a Raw Whey Protein shake every day helps with weight loss by reducing fat and adding lean muscle.

Substituting one meal per day with a raw whey protein shake can help you lose weight. By cutting out a meal rich in calories and carbs and replacing it with a lower-calorie yet more satiating whey shake, you create a bigger calorie deficit. Only do this for one meal per day. You still need to eat whole food meals to ensure an adequate intake of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Chocolate Cranberry Chia Energy Bites October 30, 2017 18:44

Chocolate Cranberry Chia Energy Bites

It's a wonderful feeling when you are snacking on something delicious and you know that it is good for you as well! Our Chocolate Cranberry Chia Energy Bites are full of healthy ingredients that will fill you up and energize you at the same time! Drink a cup of green tea with these tasty snacks for an added fat burning bonus!

This is a NO BAKE recipe!

Just Blend all ingredients, roll into balls & chill in the fridge:

1/2 cup raw walnuts

1/2 cup raw cashews

1 cup of soft pitted dates (for best results, warm the pitted dates in hot water before blending)

1/2 cup of dried cranberries (no sugar added)

1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

2 Tbsp. coconut oil

1/2 cup of oats

3 Tbsp. chia seeds

2 scoops (approx. 1/2 cup) of Complete Whey Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

dash of Himalayan Sea Salt

dash of Ceylon Cinnamon

*Substitute Complete Pea Protein for a vegan recipe!

*Substitute Complete Paleo Protein for a Paleo recipe!

Health Benefits of this recipe include:

Cranberries are high in antioxidants which help to flush out your system which directly improves your metabolism and digestive system so that you can begin to lose weight faster.

Cranberries can also help to lift your moods by relieving stress, anxiety and depression.

Cranberries are good for the brain and can help to improve your memory.

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

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 seeds 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.

Chia seeds are a complete protein.  The combination of complete protein, vitamins, minerals and blood-sugar balancing gel all work together to make sure you have steady energy throughout the day.

Adding shredded coconut to food is a good way to get more fiber in your diet, which helps you feel fuller while eating less and supports regularity of digestion.

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 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.

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

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

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