There are so many protein powders on the market these days, how do you know which is the best option for you? And do you even need a protein powder?
I think good quality protein powders can be beneficial for a lot of people’s diets, but it’s not a necessary supplement for everyone.
For example, a good quality protein powder can really help athletes or avid gym goers, vegetarians or vegans, busy people who struggle to get time for proper meals, and people who are immune compromised.
However the quality of protein powder is paramount! There are a ton of poor quality, highly processed, and artificially-sweetened powders out there that you want to be avoiding! If you’re adding a protein powder into your diet, you want to make sure that it is actually going to be beneficial – you want to ensure it is made up of real, nutritionally-dense ingredients, and is minimally processed.
