Oh, protein. It has been quite the popular fellow these past years, what with protein bars and protein powder populating the food market.
Everyone needs enough protein, but issues arise when you don’t get it from a trusted source. These days, unfortunately, animals are raised in factory farms, fed GMOs and are given antibiotics. Nuts and seeds are sprayed with pesticides, fungicides and other chemicals. It can be difficult to find protein that you trust.
Here at The Spring, we have found a trustworthy source of protein which comes in powder form and originates from 100% pasture-raised cows.
Collagen, the most plentiful protein in the human body, provides support for the growth and repair of skin, teeth, bones, ligaments and tendons. Traditional diets were naturally rich in amino acids and other nutrients that supported the production of collagen. Collagen is made up of several important amino acids, including alanine, hydroxyproline, proline and glycine.
Now you may be wondering how to consume such a product, can you add it to any old thing? The answer is yes! As long as the powder is absorbed by the food, not simply added like a spice, your body will absorb it too.
Another way is to make protein bars! Below are a couple of recipes you can use or adapt to your liking. You could also add almond butter, dried fruit, nuts, almost anything you fancy.
If you’re interested in getting some of this amazing protein, don’t hesitate to stop by The Spring to pick some up.
