Good Sources Of Protein
Good sources of protein are “complete”. This means that they contain all of the “essential” amino acids necessary for the body to metabilize the protein and build muscle. Protein rich foods are meats, nuts, beans, vegetables and dairy products. Animal protein is the most “complete” with fish and poultry being the lowest in saturated fat. But don’t believe the lie that you can’t get enough protein without meat. A balanced and diverse plant based diet provides many good sources of protein and is far superior in all aspects of diet and nutrition. A diet high in animal protein has been linked to many common diseases that can be avoided with a plant based diet.
High Protein Diet
Low fat, high protein diets have been successful in losing weight because protein contains low calories and “fills you up” a lot like fiber. In fact, high protein and fiber shakes are a great way to begin losing weight effortlessly. Once your body becomes accustomed to a high protein diet you should incorporate other good sources of protein from your meals. One easy way to get more protein is from protein powder.

Bulk Protein Powder
Body builders are not the only ones mixing protein shakes. Having bulk protein powder nearby is a great way to supplement a healthy diet. Whether your looking for a post-workout shake or you just want to mix your own healthy smoothie, high quality protein is healthy and smart. Most bulk protein powder is from whey (milk-based) or soy (soy-beans) because of the cost. Whey protein has a bad reputation as being difficult to digest. Soy protein is easier on the digestive system along with other plant based protein powders like pea protein.
