Protein is essential for the growth, maintenance, and repair of the body. It is needed for the manufacturing of hormones, antibodies, enzymes and tissues. When digested, proteins are broken down into amino acids, which are responsible for giving protein its nutritional value. Therefore, it is important to choose high quality protein sources such as eggs, lean poultry and meat, fish and dairy. However, many people have sensitivities to these foods.
Because I feel that eating a protein-rich breakfast is so important to starting your day off right, I have found that smoothies can be a fast and nutritious way to go. In my search for a protein powder that is suitable for most, if not all individuals, I have discovered PlantFusion. It is a great tasting, allergen-free, easy to digest, multi-sourced plant protein powder. In addition, it is a complete protein formula that has branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and L-glutamine to support muscle and connective tissue health. Because PlantFusion is easily digested and efficiently absorbed, it provides strength and energy without irritating the digestive system. PlantFusion is well-suited for vegetarians, vegans, and individuals with food sensitivities.

PlantFusion makes a great quick shake (simply add chilled water to a scoop of PlantFusion in a shaker cup and shake until mixed). It also makes a very tasty smoothie. Here is one of my favorite smoothie recipes:
½ cup plain yogurt
½ cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen banana pieces
1 cup rice or almond milk
1 scoop of Plant Fusion (vanilla)
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Enjoy!
