We’re big on plant protein around here—especially in pea form. That’s one reason why we’ve infused pea protein, the best vegan protein, into our patented blend of deliciously healthy BodyCrunch Pea Protein Crunchies, which are a great snack to enjoy before or after working out. Peas are a great non-meat source of protein, and thus safe for vegetarians and vegans. There are many ways that pea proteins can benefit you, you body and your workout, including:
- Pea proteins are healthy and a great way to get extra plant protein into your diet.
- Peas contain vitamins A, B-1, B-6, C and K, according to WebMD.
- Peas maintain bone health and help clot blood, according to WebMD.
- They are a major source of vegetable protein, thus a non-animal source.
Many supplements and shakes out there typically offer protein from whey or peas. According to Livestrong.com, whey has a construction that is considered a “complete” protein, which means it has all of the essential proteins. Peas, by contrast, are considered “incomplete” due to missing some of those ingredients. However, because whey results as a byproduct of cheese-making, it is not vegan, whereas pea proteins are a vegan protein as they contain no animal products as well, which makes it a better alternative for those who wish to avoid any animal products in their protein shakes, even though, according to Livestrong, they are missing certain amino acids.
But back to the vegan protein element. As we mentioned, not only are our Pea Protein Crunchies Vegan, they are absolutely delicious! Ever since we were kids, we’ve learned to associate “heathy” food with horrible taste, but we at Body360 Nutritionals believe that you can have healthful food that also tastes good. Toward that end, we offer you, our fine customers, a supplement product that has a great taste and that is also “fun” to chow on thanks to its cool crunch that pops in your mouth whenever you take a bite. We’ve spiced it up a bit with a nutty taste so that, again, you don’t feel like you’re consuming something just because it’s good for you—it’s also just plain GOOD! Also, you can dine on the Protein Crunchies on their own or, better yet, mix them in with your normal food products to give your meals a zesty, hearty dose of goodness.
For the best vegan protein snack, we’ve whipped up here for you a recipe to get you in a healthy kinda mood thanks to our BodyCrunch Vegan Pea Protein Crunchies. For this recipe, we’ll be using Romaine lettuce mixed with beans and our BodyCrunch Vegan Pea Protein Crunchies.
