Protein Powder, weight training, all-natural

If you’re anything like Team Sporteluxe and have been hitting the weight rack or revving up to do so, then you’ll know a good sweat-sesh is never complete without a healthy diet to boot. You’ve probably heard by now the importance of protein in any weight training regimen: good for keeping hunger at bay and aiding in recovery, it’s also the ultimate beauty booster. Aside from your everyday lean meats, eggs and legumes, it’s nice to have an alternative you can mix in a smoothie or a yoghurt for breakfast or post-workout snack. So without further ado, here are nine of the best all-natural protein powders.

Protein supplements superfood bondi blendsNew on the supplement scene is Sydney-based Bondi Blends. This Aussie brand has a variety of superfood blends that make for an awesome (not to mention seriously tasty) addition to your green smoothie. We’re loving the Cleanse blends with Kale, wheatgrass, spirulina and alfalfa for a hefty dose of green goodness. The best part? It tastes like anything but wheatgrass thanks to the superfood goji berries added into the mix. With a protein powder soon to be released, we give these colourful packets of goodness two thumbs up.
