Our New Favorite Protein Powder

I’m not sure about you, but where I live in the Pacific Northwest, autumn is definitely in the air! With the kids returning back to school, parents should have more time to themselves, although that often ends up not being the case…

So today we wanted to chat about how to save time while packing a protein punch into your Paleo meals – with protein powder! Last week our nutritionist Aimee shared what’s in her Paleo Smoothie Pantry and today we wanted to discuss some ways to ‘beef’ up your liquid meals…quite literally!

As you may be aware, not all protein powders are Paleo-friendly, in fact, many aren’t. They’re often made from a non-Paleo protein source (like whey) and loaded with sugar and other unfavorable ingredients. Bleh!

Some Paleo protein powders are made from meat sources like beef (hence my earlier pun), however most of the meat-based powders we’ve tried in the past have been either too gritty or too flavorful (and not in a good way)! Some “Paleo” powders are lacking in the protein department, or they’re just straight up gross.

So you can imagine our delight and surprise to discover a DELICIOUS protein powder that’s 100% Paleo, containing 27 grams of protein per serving, with zero aftertaste or grittiness.

Are There Paleo Protein Powders?

Paleo PlanMany Paleo eaters want to know the best option for a Paleo protein powder and there are certainly plenty of mixed reviews on the internet. Often the Paleo community seems to be in favor of grassfed whey protein, but since it is dairy-based it can often be problematic for those who are sensitive to dairy or who wish to avoid it altogether. Many non-whey protein powders are plant-based, but these often contain grains, which are also not Paleo.
