Protein Packed Smoothies

Jan 20, 2022 | Health, Over 40, Recipes

If you cast your mind back to high-school biology, you’ll recall proteins were referred to as the body’s building blocks and are made up of amino acids. To keep things simple, protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is also an important constituent of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply. Which is why I always recommend you eat protein at every meal. Here are a few of my Smoothie Recipes to ensure you get your protein as you race out the door in the morning, don’t feel like making an effort for dinner or need a refuel after exercise.

WHY I CHOOSE BOLD? Besides being well-researched, Aussie made and really tasty, I like products that give you more bang for your buck! BOLD Protein contains vitamins and minerals recommended for healthy aging plus the protein is plant based which suits my gut. Other goodies include fibre, prebiotics, algal Omega-3 DH and turmeric extract. You are actually getting a lot more than protein, your getting really valuable micronutrients your body needs as you age.
