We live in fast-paced society in which spending time to make well-balanced meals has become a low priority. Because of this lifestyle, protein is largely neglected in diets today. While it may not seem like a big deal, getting enough protein is an essential part of healthy living. Most people think protein is just for body builders. It isn’t. Protein is a necessary macronutrient for everyone. It can help you lose weight, gain muscle, and maintain a strong physique. Without the proper amount of protein, your body simply won’t function as well as it should. And while cooking at home may seem like a good solution, creating a healthy, balanced, and protein-rich meal can be more time consuming than you’d like. Enter the protein bowl.
Juice It Up! protein bowls are a great way to add protein, fresh fruits, and superfoods into your diet. They easily give you everything you need for a healthy breakfast, a quick lunch, or a detoxing dinner. They are an easy, vibrant, and convenient bridge to healthy living. And if you like variety, we have many protein bowls to choose from.
1. The Protein Açaí Superfruit Bowl
Let’s be honest, food tastes better in a bowl than on a plate – especially when your food is a creamy blend of organic açaí and peanut butter. The Protein Açaí Bowl has many ingredients that make it a nutritionist’s dream. It’s a gluten-free and lacto-vegetarian bowl that’s crafted with soy milk, organic açaí superfruit, bananas, peanut butter, non-fat yogurt, protein powder, and guarana. The organic açaí superfruit is packed with beneficial antioxidants that will protect you from toxins and slow down the processes related to cell aging. The Açaí superfruit is also known to strengthen heart and skin health.
The optimal amount of protein varies from person to person; however, DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) recommends 0.9 grams of protein per kilogram (.36 pounds) of body weight per day. On average, this amounts to around 50 grams per day. With the Protein Açaí Superfruit Bowl, this goal is easily achievable. The regular size protein bowl has 28 grams of protein and the large has a whopping 33 grams of protein. It’s a protein breakfast bowl that will help you feel fuller for longer, reduce cravings, and lessen the desire to overeat. And to top it all off, the Protein Açaí Superfruit Bowl is adorned with granola, fresh bananas, crunchy peanuts and a drizzle of honey. It’s a delicious way to get a healthy dose of superfruit and all the nutrients, energy, and protein you need in just one bowl.
2. Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl
Nourishment is more than nutrition. As Mark David said, “Nourishment is the nutrients in the food, the taste, the aroma, and the joy of the entire eating experience.” Among the most pleasurable eating experiences is the Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl. It’s one of those superfruit bowls that provides both eye candy and unbelievable nourishment. It has spirulina which gives it an insta-gorgeous blue color that is bright and captivating. Moreover, it features pineapples, mangos, pineapple juice, lemonade, Greek yogurt, Vital Proteins® collagen, and spirulina. The bowl is crowned with delicious chia seeds, hemp granola, coconut flakes, banana, and honey. Each of the ingredients offers something remarkable when it comes to quality flavor and nutrition.
Beyond the heavenly taste and sensational blue, the health benefits of this bowl are astounding. Packed with a complete spectrum of essential nutrients, the Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl has spirulina, a nutrient-rich miracle of nature that is known to powerfully detox the body. This bowl also features 15 grams of protein, which your body requires to produce new cells and repair ones that are damaged. Lastly, the bowl showcases Vital Proteins® collagen, a necessary stimulator for healthy hair, nails, and skin. This is by far one of the most nutritionally-beneficial protein bowls, making an exceptional meal replacement for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
