So you’re looking for a different way to get fit? Bored of the same old gym routines? Have you ever considered boxing…

Boxing is often mistaken as a weight lifting or strength exercise, when in reality it is much more about resistance and cardio, it’s a real calorie burner.

If you find the idea of entering a boxing gym too daunting you can easily get started at home. All you’ll need is a punchbag and enough room to move around it!

Starting the morning right means setting yourself up for a productive day.

With the Optimum Nutrition Protein Pancake Mix, this allows you to get off to a great start!

Whether you want to add some fruit to them, some tasty jam, have a bit of low-calorie syrup or honey or a bit of cinnamon…it’s up to you, as this mix comes unflavoured it gives you the versatility to choose.

Nutritionally speaking, this product packs a punch thanks to the focus on using good ingredients.

We’ve got included in here:

Oats
Whey Protein & Egg Albumen
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)

But how do they taste?

Taste & Texture

ON Mix - Taste Test
It’s good and all having premium ingredients, but what do they actually taste like? We can’t be having funny tasting pancakes in a morning! After making the pancakes (we made sure to follow the directions and used a good quality non-stick pan) the results were better than expected, light & fluffy and easy to eat, a real treat to be honest. We added some strawberry jam with some blueberries which is a winning combination for sure and well worth a try!

The Macros Breakdown

Whilst they taste great and contain good ingredients, what are the actual nutritionals like for the Optimum Nutrition Protein Pancake Mix? Well, not bad at all really! With 20g of protein per pancake, 18g of carbohydrates (just 2.5g of which is sugar) and 4.3g of quality fats this makes the pancakes are pretty well balanced in our eyes and are ideal to eat in the morning or even during the day.

Who should use this product?

Anyone looking for an on-the-go, convenient breakfast solution that increases their protein intake and provides a source of fibre or anyone who wants to support muscle growth & repair before or after a morning workout or anytime. It’s a convenient source of protein and carbohydrates. It contains complex carbohydrates from oats. Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Conclusion

Are you looking for a quality pancake mix that has the benefits of being fitness-friendly and great tasting? Well, you may want to get your hands on this solid addition to the Optimum Nutrition range in that case.

This ON Protein Pancake Mix is fantastic, versatile and easy to prepare product which passes the taste test and has solid macros – a real 5 Star product.

Reflex Nutrition Pea Protein – Product Review

originally from: http://www.discount-supplements.co.uk/blog/reflex-nutrition-pea-protein-product-review/

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Do you follow a plant based or vegan diet or looking to try it out? Are you looking for an alternative to whey protein?

Or maybe just looking to try something different? If so, this Pea Protein from Reflex Nutrition may be well worth checking out…

In this product review we are having a closer look at the Reflex Pea Protein which is a premium quality plant based protein powder that focuses on using the best ingredients and providing some pretty impressive nutritionals.

Following an increase in the number of people looking into, trying out or converting to plant based and vegan diets various companies are looking at ways to meet this increase in demand.

With Reflex Nutrition being well known for their innovative products, attention to detail and high standards, we have been very keen to test out the brand new Reflex Nutrition Pea Protein.

Initial Impressions
Reflex Pea Protein

After checking out the packaging, reading the label and trying it out we’ve got to say that our overall impression is that this is pretty good.

We’ve tried out Pea Proteins over the years and although they’ve improved significantly in terms of the taste and texture, many of them are still fairly granular and ‘gritty’. This however, seems to be a noticeable step up, thanks to new technologies that Reflex are taking advantage of.

Not only that, but pretty much every aspect of this product is impressive…the sweetener used is Stevia, the peas are non-GMO French Yellow Split Peas, there are added digestive enzymes, the protein percentage is super high coming in at 71-75% (depending on flavour) and it just goes on and on…

There’s even a range of quality flavours available too and not just one that many brands may offer when it comes to pea proteins in particular.

Other Highlights

Highly Bioavailability (BV)
Environmentally friendly source of protein
Added friendly bacteria
Manufactured in Reflex’s 100% renewable energy facility
Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Taste & Texture

When it comes to taste this is the best plant based protein we’ve tried to date and whether you go for the Cocoa flavour, Vanilla Ice Cream or Strawberry they are all done well.

When doing our review we tried the various Reflex Nutrition Pea Protein flavours with water and then again with Almond Milk, thumbs up all round here. For the chocolate flavour we also tried it with chocolate Oatly (a chocolate oat based drink) and that was a real winner, very chocolatey and pretty pleasant to drink indeed for a plant based protein.

The texture…is really, really good, in fact it’s one of the best things about the product.

When compared to other pea protein powders we’ve tried, this is so silky smooth – it’s hard to believe!

No granular or gritty experience at all, which means that one of the biggest objections to consuming a Pea protein has now just disappeared.

Final Thoughts

So yeah, overall we’re pretty impressed with this.

If you’ve tried a Pea Protein or plant based protein this is going to be a real upgrade (based upon what we’ve tried) and for those of us who are looking for environmentally friendly products this certainly ticks that box too, thanks to Reflex’s 100% renewable manufacturing facility.

Healthy Pumpkin Bread: Deliciously Dairy-Free & Naturally Vegan

originally from: https://www.godairyfree.org/recipes/healthy-pumpkin-bread

I do love pumpkin bread. But most recipes are a little too indulgent to enjoy often. So I decided to create a healthy pumpkin bread recipe that’s naturally sweetened and lower in sugar, but just sweet enough. While I was at it, I made it whole grain. And this is actually an egg-free, nut-free, and […]
