SUNWARRIOR Protein Powder
I am always on the look out for good protein powders. I love to use protein powder to make shakes with, add to pancake mix or oatmeal in the morning, and for adding to cookies, brownies or homemade bars to up the protein content. I’ve often relied on whey protein powders; but the more research I do, I’m discovering it’s a good idea to mix up my protein sources. Pea protein is a great substitute for people who are vegan or who eliminate dairy and dairy products from their diet. Sunwarrior is an excellent raw vegan protein powder made of primarily pea protein as well as hemp and cranberry protein.
Warrior Blend uses a variety of raw protein sources that mix together in a smooth, yummy tasting shake. Sunwarrior has a complete amino acid profile and is especially high in Arginine, Lysine, Leucine and BCAA’s. All of these amino’s are responsible for muscle growth, repair and better immune function. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and there are 8 essential amino acids that our bodies need to get directly from out diet. Protein powders can be an easy way to add some of these amino acids to our diets.
Sunwarrior claims it’s “The next generation in raw, plant-based protein,” and “it’s an easily digestible, nutrient filled superfood perfect for anyone who wants to amplify their health and fitness levels. Best of all, it tastes phenomenal!” I’ve tried the chocolate and it is good. It mixes well for a plant based protein and I like the small individual packages to carry with me when I travel. It’s less grainy than other pea protein powders I’ve tried which is awesome. It wasn’t too sweet and I really liked the raw cacao taste. I think it will be a great protein powder in my rotations and I love the breakdown of nutrients.
Give it a try and let me know your thoughts. I’m excited to mix the vanilla powder in my oatmeal with some flax and walnuts. I also think either chocolate or vanilla will be a tasty addition to pancakes and maybe Timothy will like them too–he loves his peas, that’s for sure!
