And for me, the most versatile and generally useful kind of protein shake may be the whey-based one. This is because whey protein contains numerous essential amino acids packed into it. And whether you are a body builder or an over 40-something person looking for a way to improve your diet, keeping a steady flow of nutrients is vitally important.
Another benefit of using whey-based protein shakes is that you will generally find little fat within these dietary supplements. Thereby giving you some room to enjoy fats in something else; perhaps a greasy “cheat” food you love?
Variety is also a benefit. I like to blend frozen organic fruits such as blueberries, cherries or mango into my shakes to vary the flavor and boost my antioxidant and whole fruit consumption. And since whey has little flavor, you can be creative with your personal taste and consistency. There are even flavored varieties of whey protein if you prefer; like banana, chocolate and strawberry (but I use plain, and avoid artificial additives by using REAL fruit or cacao).
Although using a protein-shake supplement may seem expensive or time consuming; it’s not. It costs no more, nor consumes more time than waiting in line at the drive through for a fast-food snack! And it is certainly better for you!
So, ditch the junk and allow protein-shakes to play a happy and healthy role in your nutrition.
As Always - Enjoy Your Life!
