What is protein and why is it so important?
Protein is one of three very important macronutrients in the body. Alongside carbohydrates and fats, protein has many roles in the body such as building muscle, supporting and creating structure for cellular tissues, regulating hormones, and even protecting the body from harmful bacteria and viruses. On a general note, consuming enough protein is one of the best ways to shut off those pesky hunger hormones and ensure you are feeling your best throughout the day.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect pre/post workout snack, something to take with you on the go, or just in need of a 3 o’clock pick me up – our bites have you covered! Each one of our all natural protein balls contains 5 grams of high quality, easy to digest, plant based protein. Our recipe was designed to cater to any and all dietary preferences, without skimping on nutrients. Our protein balls will keep you feeling full, energized and most importantly – healthy and happy.
What kind of protein is used in our products?
Our products are made with a pea protein powder, as well as wholesome ingredients such as peanuts, cashews, and quinoa. Our goal was to create a recipe that everyone could love – with dietary preferences and intolerances in mind. Pea protein has a very neutral flavor and is a great hypoallergenic option, as it does not contain dairy or gluten.
