PROTEIN bars, drinks, powders and gels that were once made for top athletes are now sold everywhere.
In fact, we spend a staggering £66million on sports nutrition every year. So we look at some of the latest ways to get your protein fix and trialled the latest facials on the market.
Get Nourished comes in at just 189 kcals and is also really low in fat
Get Nourished has launched a high protein drink called “coffee coconut and cacao mocha”.
In each 310ml bottle there is 25g protein (as much as a 100g steak), as well as 120mg of caffeine.
The drink comes in at just 189 kcals and is is also really low in fat with just 2.8g per bottle.
Derived from lactose-free milk, it is also really easy to drink on the go and tastes lovely (£2.99 per bottle at hollandandbarrett.com).
The Prime Beef Bar is a great alternative to protein shakes
If, like me, you don’t really like sweet stuff such as protein shakes, this is a great alternative.
The Prime Beef Bar contains 14g of protein and 153kcal per portion but does have 17.2g fat per 100g.
The bar is 76 per cent grass fed British beef and I love the chilli and red pepper flavour.
It’s high in salt, high in fat but for a protein hit on the go without the sweet taste I absolutely loved it (six mixed bars for £18, primebar.co.uk).
Raw Sport has 25g of protein per 30g serving
Raw Sport is quite new to the protein powder market, and it’s great. I tried the vanilla and cinnamon vegan repair, which has 25g of protein per 30g serving.
Superfoods include curcumin, moringa, chlorella, baobab and lucuma so it’s full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Plus pre and probiotics for a healthy digestive system. A fantastic all rounder (£34.99 for 1kg, revolution-foods.com).
