The Only Guide To Protein Shakes You’ll Ever Need

The Only Guide To Protein Shakes You'll Ever Need

This guide to protein shakes will tell you everything you need to know about making healthy protein shakes.

Most people these days are concerned about getting enough protein in their diets.  As a lot of people eat in a hurry, the popularity of protein shakes has risen significantly in the last few years.

In 2016, 3 billion dollars worth of protein shakes were purchased in the United States.

Although protein is an essential part of our diet, I don’t believe is more important than all of the other macronutrients and micronutrients that are critical for good health.

My aim is to share healthy recipes for protein shakes that contains all of the needed nutrients including protein, and are based on whole plant based foods.

I believe that once you cover all of your nutritional bases, you’ll feel better than you’ve ever felt.  It’s certainly working for me!

Of course most people are too busy for sit down healthy meals containing a good amount of protein and other nutrients.  And I totally understand as I am also too busy for cooking and eating 3 healthy meals each day.

So I’m not surprised protein shakes have become more popular than ever before.

Most people whizz up their protein powder with some water and it keeps the hunger at bay for a little while.  This is a popular snack, but I believe it’s better to get enough calories in our meals so that we’re not hungry for snacks, and we’re not reaching for extra protein powder because we are completely satisfied.

That’s why I focus on meal replacement protein shakes.

I like to get all of my calories and my nutrients in my meals as I’m too busy for snacking.

Although some protein powder is healthier than others, I do believe that whole foods containing all your nutrients, rather than isolated and highly processed nutrients are so much better for your health.

So I started to make and create my own protein shake recipes based on whole foods.  I call them ‘Green Thickies’. I calculate them so they contain complete nutrition. You will get more than enough protein from natural sources, including all of your other nutrients.

In this guide to protein shakes, I’m going to be answering all of the questions you might have about getting enough protein, where to get your protein, what are good sources of protein, and I’ll be sharing over 50 tasty and filling protein shake recipes with you that only require ingredients you can buy at your local store.

I’ll also be sharing how you can easily lose weight by replacing your meals with 1-2 protein shakes each day.

I myself managed to lose 56 pounds on a protein shakes diet in just a few months.  Now I focus on helping other people do the same, if they choose to.

If you don’t need to lose weight, protein shakes are still a great way to increase your energy naturally, or to help building muscle if you are weight training.

What Is The Best Protein Powder?

P O W D E R ?

I think that most people would be better off giving protein powders a miss and simply eating more whole food sources of protein.

However I do understand that some people, like bodybuilders do rely on protein powder to keep their protein at their intended target.  

So I have selected my favorite protein powders for you in the following articles.  

I always choose products based on how healthy they are, and avoiding minimal processing.  

These protein powders are the healthiest on the market right now.

I use it multiple times every day and cheap blenders just do not compare. If you make a lot of blended food, you absolutely won’t regret buying this Vitamix blender.

Must Have Protein Shaker Bottles

When you get into the habit of making daily healthy protein shakes, you’ll feel so good that you won’t want to miss a day, even when you’re at work, school or out and about having fun.  So you’ll need a way to transport your nutritionally complete protein shake meals without fuss or spills. Here are my favorite on the go blender bottles.

Sistema Shaker To Go Smoothie Bottle

This is my number one favorite smoothie bottle that I keep going back to time after time. It’s also very reasonably priced, and you can get it in most Amazon stores across the world.

Here is what I love about it:

  • It has a large capacity which is important to me.  When you cram in loads of spinach into your smoothies, it makes the volume much larger – hence the need for a bigger smoothie bottle. The capacity is 700ml / 23.67oz / 2.96cups.  Enough for a nice filling 500 calorie complete meal smoothie.
  • It doesn’t leak.  This is my primary concern about smoothie bottles – they have to be leak proof, because who wants to be covered in thick green slime?
  • It can be easily cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher.
  • It is very easy to drink from – just flip open the lid and drink.
  • It doesn’t have a built in straw or any areas of the bottle that can’t be reached.  Straws are a mold hazard waiting to happen.  I like to be able to see and clean all areas of my smoothie bottles.
  • It is long lasting and robust.  I have had mine for years and they are still going strong.  I now have 4 of these, 2 for me and 2 for my husband.  You can get them in a range of colors like pink, blue and green.

Wide Mouthed Smoothie Bottle

This Wide Mouthed Smoothie Bottle is perfect for getting Green Thickies quickly from the bottle to your mouth as it is nice and wide!

Insulated Leak Proof Stainless Steel Smoothie Bottle

Not only is this Insulated Leak Proof Stainless Steel Smoothie Bottle completely 100% leak proof due to the special O design ring on the cap, but it also doesn’t sweat or accumulate condensation on the outside, so you can put it inside your bag and know that the contents of your bag will be safe.

This revolutionary design ensures that cold liquids will stay cold for 24 hours and hot liquids will stay hot for an impressive 12 hours.

Electric Automatic Protein Blender Shaker

A lightweight portable electric protein shaker that is perfect to make protein shakes in seconds when you are on the go. This would also make a fantastic gift for your healthy living friends and family too.

Stainless Steel Protein Powder Shaker Bottle

Travel with your smoothies, the non-toxic way with this stylish stainless steel blender bottle. This has a large capacity of 739ml/ 26 oz to store a large filling smoothie. Plus the cap of this Stainless Steel Protein Powder Shaker Bottle is made from BPA free plastic to keep you safe.
