I wanted to share with you just a little bit about my favorite protein powder on the market right now–Aloha True Vanilla Bean Protein Powder.
Aloha True Vanilla Bean Protein Powder
You’re probably thinking okay girl, you’re just some health-conscious hippie who doesn’t eat meat. Guess what? If you thought that, you are wrong! Well, kind of. I most definitely am a health-conscious chick, but ya girl definitely eats meat as well. As the name of my blog implies, I am all about balance.
There are so many reasons why Aloha True Vanilla Bean Protein Powder is my current favorite and here they are:
18 grams of plant-based protein
Complete amino acid profile
200 mg Omega 3
Excellent source of iron and magnesium
Only 4 grams of sugar per serving
NO stevia, soy, gluten, and dairy
Besides the amazing health benefits, quite frankly I think it has the best taste as well! WIN WIN!
I like to blend it into my smoothies every morning and it packs the extra protein punch I need to get me through the AM!
