      Tiring workout sessions need not lead to hunger anymore. Gaining lean muscle and boosting metabolism is easiest when you incorporate a lot of proteins in your diet- and which is simpler than at home protein shakes to do that? Proteins are easily the paramount nutrient to fitness. Protein being a powerhouse of health benefits, the recommended daily allowance is 1.2 to 2.0 grams per kilogram of body ... weight (for adults) and 1.5 grams per kilogram of body weight (for children). Protein powders contain three common forms of protein: protein concentrates, protein isolates, and protein hydrolysates- where the latter forms raise insulin levels more. Whey protein homemade in particular is fortified with vitamins and minerals- making it perfect for regular weightlifters. Made from milk, it harbours lactose and is rich in branched-chain amino acids that are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and play a major role in promoting muscle growth and recovery. A homemade protein shake for weight gain is the perfect energy drink for individuals who struggle to meet protein needs with food alone. Studies have shown that whey protein improves body composition by decreasing fat mass and increasing lean mass, it is also proven to reduce inflammation and improve heart health markers in overweight / obese people.

      Getting the best out of your homemade protein powder recipe
      DIY protein powder is the way to go (no weird commercial variants). Each protein powder takes on its own flavour with the addition of fruits, veggies, nuts, or seeds- it is also justifiable to make use of natural sweetener (could be dates or agave) when you prepare your homemade protein shakes. You can use your protein powder as a flour substitute- it is super easy to pack more protein into your high carb foods like pancakes, cookies, waffles, or muffins. Here are some things you should pay attention to while incorporating your homemade protein powder. 1. First of all, don’t ignore the protein powder substitution chart! It’s a great first step to know which powders are substitutable with which. 2. Always use a moisturiser when you’re making protein pancakes or muffins. If your batter is over ½ protein powder, your food will turn out dry and rubbery. 3. Use frozen fruit or veggies. Combined with your protein powder, they make for the best fluff. Try using frozen (cooked) cauliflower, sweet potato, or butternut squash- using vanilla for whey and topping it with cinnamon can give much yum! 4. When making protein pudding- Greek yoghurt is a wonderful option that also satisfies your sweet tooth. Try this healthy option of Homemade Protein Powder recipe instead of the store-bought now and mak

      Success!
