4 Protein-Packed Recipes For Peanut Butter Lovers

Go nuts!

Once upon a time (and not that long ago) there was a common misconception that taking protein powder as a woman would make you ‘big’ or ‘bulky’.
What’s promising, is that now, we’re finding that more and more women are ditching this fear and embracing protein powder for what it can be—a great addition to a healthy, balanced diet. What’s even better is that women don’t have to miss out on the many other health benefits protein powder can offer, beyond maintaining lean muscle and toning up.
You may remember this recent article where we highlighted how organic protein powder brand, Happy Way, contains all-natural ingredients that did all sorts of wonderful things like improve digestion, balance hormones, increase energy levels, libido and help boost your immunity at the same time.

Catering to their female fans, Happy Way is free from preservatives, artificial sweeteners and flavours and contain only good-for-you, gut-loving ingredients—which is why we were super stoked when we found out they’ve just added a new flavour to their already impressive range: Peanut Butter!
Here’s a list of some of the ingredients you’ll find in their latest addition and the benefits that come with it:

Coconut Flour

This flour is a great low-carb alternative to wheat flour. It’s also gluten free and high in fibre.

Psyllium Husk

High in fibre making it great for weight management and digestive health. 

Chia Seeds

Contains Omega 3 and are rich in antioxidants which help fight free radicals in the body.

Stevia Leaf

A natural sugar substitute that contains little to no calories. This plant-based sweetener has just the right amount of sweetness that will have you feeling #guiltfree.
