There comes a time in everyone’s life, where one values health over taste. That’s not the case anymore! Or at least it shouldn’t be, take it from Madhvi Datwani, co-founder and CEO of Green Protein, a brand that specialises in pea protein. If you’re looking to remain in the pink of your health without compromising on palatable options, this is about as good as it gets! In times of Covid, and everyone adjusting to life post pandemic, keeping one’s immunity at an all time high is the prerequisite. Here’s how you can use a supplement like Green Protein to boost your resilience against infections and bacteria.
Simply put, proteins are the building blocks of our system. They’re how our antibodies, enzymes, hormones, and what-nots work! If you’re familiar with what amino acids are, you already know that they’re what proteins are made up of, and these very amino acids help in securing your immunity functions. The amount of protein the human body needs to be able to carry out immunity related tasks depends on age, gender, weight, and a few other factors. If you’re ill, your protein requirement is guaranteed to shoot up. It only makes sense to keep consuming the correct daily amount, consistently, to ensure that in the event of illness, you aren’t starting from scratch. With fruit-flavoured, pre-measured sachets, you can give yourself the tasty immunity boost you need. Still, the idea of incorporating protein supplements into your diet can be daunting and a tricky territory to navigate. Here’s some tips and tricks, courtesy Green Protein.
As if the yummiest breakfast food of all time could get any better! Oh wait, it just did. You can serve yourself berry or orange flavoured pancakes by replacing part of the flour with the powdered protein supplement instead. Cook as normal after, and you’re good to go! Top these healthy but delicious treats with maple syrup or chunks of chocolate as per normal.
An oldie, but a goody! Smoothies are failsafe and are likely to keep you full for a long time. Toss in some bananas, milk, and a sachet of your favourite flavour into a blender for a quick and easy beverage that’s sure to leave you feeling satisfied. Smoothies are perfect for when you’re on the go but need nourishment.
Elevate the smoothie from the tip above and take it a notch higher by turning it into a granola bowl. Take the thick base and top it with fruits, berries, and granola chunks. It’s definitely going to leave you feeling full, and it also makes for the perfect Instagram story! And as they say, if you didn’t snap it, did it even happen?
Perfect for the summer months, once you’ve mixed the sachet into either milk or water, throw it into popsicle molds, and freeze till they hold their shape. Then get slurping! This is a fun but healthy way to get your daily intake and is especially lovely for children!
You don’t have to rely on age old notions of health and immunity to be able to make a difference to yours. All you need is a couple of sachets and you’re set. It’s 2022, and we’re here for Pea Protein. After all, the only new variants you need are flavours!
