So I just found TrueProtein.com and they let you formulate your own custom protein powder. I'm not affiliated with the site or company, just think it's a cool tool to use and their prices seem to be decent. I know protein shakes aren't paleo or ideal blah, blah. For those of us wanting to bulk up that can't have steak and potatoes ready right after a workout or want a quick hit of protein, what would make a good formula? I Crossfit on the regular so a mix good for that kind of workout would be a big plus. Thanks in advance.
I have two blends I use.
Cold-filtered whey, unflavored, that I drink in the morning for my AM 50gms.
50% whole egg, 30% cold-filtered whey, 20% MCT powder that I blend with canned coconut milk and pineapple for snacking and post-workout. It tastes rough by itself, the coconut and 1-2 chunks of pineapple lend a pina colada flavor.
most protien powders have far too many additive and flavour enhancers and how much of it is actually absorbed - you lose the synergy of other nutrients by using it.Better to get it from whole food or if you have to supplement go to the highest natural source with no anti nutrients. The best whole source satiating, amino balanced in my opinion by far is sacha inchi powder. it's got no additives - is 63 % highly digestible - so you absorb 99% of what you eat - and goes suprisingly well with cacao powder and coconut sugar(low gi sugar packed with vitamins and minerals - particially good if youre also working out) and your choice of milk. This makes a great homemade 100% natural chocolate drink that is energy boosting, full of feel good tryptophan and all the other aminos, vitamins and minerals and polyphenols - high in potassium and magnesium - eliminating the need for sports type drinks and tastes great.http://www.matakanasuperfoods.com/ms/products/sacha-inchi-protein-powder.html
