My Favorite Protein / Green Powder Supplements
I recommend starting your day with a breakfast a protein shake or smoothie, call it what you will.
To keep breakfast simple, yet nutritious, low sugar protein shakes/smoothies are the perfect fit.
Forget all those sugary cereals and dairy, start your day with a combination of protein, healthy fat, and loads of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.
Beginning your day with healthy protein has numerous benefits, including:
Keeping hunger at bay by balancing the hormones of metabolism
Helping stabilize your blood sugar
Preventing energy crashes
Speeding up weight loss
Helping your body become more sensitive to the hormones that tell you when you are full
Many protein powders contain sugar, soy, and diary:
Sugar: Sugar is addictive, causes spikes in your blood sugar, contributes to insulin resistance, and triggers inflammation in your body.
Dairy: After the age of two, fewer than 35 percent of humans produce the enzyme lactase, which is needed to break down lactose (milk sugar) and digest milk. Without lactase in your gut, lactose remains undigested, fermenting in your intestines and causing an array of gastrointestinal symptoms. Plus, the casein in milk is an excitotoxin … protect your brain cells and AVOID these.
Soy: Soy contains a high concentration of lectins which cause biochemical changes to the cellular lining of the intestines … which contribute to leaky gut, poor absorption of nutrients (including other proteins), and the death of intestinal cells. Soy also contains inflammatory fatty acid, and a substantial amount of phytic acid, which is believed to reduce the absorption of vital minerals.
My recommendation for a protein shake includes not only a quality plant-based no sugar protein powder, but also healthy fat, such as an avocado, coconut oil, ground flax seed for added fiber, berries for antioxidants, and add a few leaves of kale, spinach, or dandelion greens. Personally, I also throw in a couple brazil nuts for the selenium, and blend the entire ingredients with a cup of unsweetened coconut milk, or almond milk.
1. Puradyme Raw Liyf Protein Powder:
This is one of my favorite protein powders because of the integrity and quality of the company, which is reflected in every product they produce. Though the quality of this protein powder is superb, the only negative is the taste – it tastes pretty blah. What I will often do is mix it in with my smoothie, or using almond or coconut milk, add some cinnamon powder (and perhaps a couple drops of stevia). I also sometimes will mix with another powder, either a vanilla or chocolate flavored protein powder.
Raw Liyf Protein Powder comes in Natural or Berry and is NO SUGAR.

PS … while you are on their site, take a look at their Liyf Essentials product. Though grams of protein isn’t high, it’s an excellent product with its amino acid complex and a complete vitamin E … and it tastes great!!
2. Omni Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder:
Omni Protein is another favorite protein powder of mine. I personally prefer the no sugar vanilla, but it also comes in chocolate. I use it to make great tasting low sugar protein bars, smoothies, and non-dairy, ice cream/shakes.

PS: Another thing I personally appreciate about Omni, is their protein powder includes glutamine, an amino acid that promotes gut health.
Green powders are a great addition to smoothies or protein shakes, or when you need a burst of energy and nutrition, just add to water and you’ve got a great green drink, without having to juice.
