Life Time Life’s Basic Protein combines Pea, Hemp, Rice and Chia Seed for a plant based mix that has a stellar vegetarian protein profile.
Not only does it deliver a hefty dose of protein but you get Omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids,amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
You all know my lover for Jay Robb Vanilla Rice Protein but this definitely gives Mr. Robb a run for his money. Life Time is not as sweet as JR but it has an amazingly creamy consistency. I am going to guess that the chia seeds are to account for that. When mixed with a liquid the chia seeds turn into a pudding like substance that is rather luscious on their own.
I mixed up a batch of blueberry oat bran this morning to put the new powder to the test. I cooked 1/2 a cup of oat bran with water and 1/2 a scoop of the protein powder. It actually absorbed a lot more water than the usual batch.
I added a cup of frozen blueberries once the oat bran reached the right consistency. I topped it off with a tablespoon of sunflower seed butter and PB2.
Not only was this stuff delicious and creamy, it smelled amazing too.
I love it!! I am very glad that I found Life Time Protein Powder – it is going to be a staple in my diet. I bought it at Whole Foods and the Health & Beauty Associate said that she has a hard time keeping it on the shelf because it sells out so fast – I can definitely see why. If you are looking for a new protein source, I highly recommend the Life Time Life’s Basic Vanilla protein.
After my workout at the gym this morning it was a great way to refuel.
I hope you have a great Monday. I am off to put on another layer of clothing – it is FREEZING today.
