Pre & Post Workout Protein Recovery Drink that is Paleo!

Photo of Coconut and Coconut WaterAfter many months of researching, shopping, and trial and error; I have finally found a solid pre-workout and post-workout protein recovery drink that works with the Paleo Challenge! You have no idea how hard it is to find a paleo-friendly powdered protein source that doesn’t add sugars (real or fake), soy, dairy products, artificial flavors, etc. But, I finally found a source of pure powdered egg whites with nothing else added. Nothing! I mentioned my new protein powder source yesterday. It has a pretty neutral, blah taste. So, I add it to coconut water to give it a better, sweeter taste and get the health benefits too. Coconut is a great food source when you’re on Paleo!

Pre-Workout Protein Drink Recipe

  • 8 oz of pure coconut water. I really like the one that I found at Whole Foods (Amy & Brian Natural Coconut juice with pulp), since it gives a richer and sweeter taste. Gives me 19 grams of carbs and 0 fat.
  • One scoop (30 g) of Bioplex pure egg white powder. Gives me 23 grams of protein, 3 grams of carbs, and 0 fat.
  • Some frozen blueberries (maybe 2 tablespoons)
  • Small dash of cinnamon, which helps the flavor and has health benefits too (aids blood sugar control, reduces cholesterol, and improves weight loss). I use less pre-workout and more post-workout, since too much cinnamon can upset my stomach.
  • Drink about 1 hour before your workout

Post-Workout Protein Recovery Drink Recipe

  • 8 oz of pure coconut water. 19 grams of carbs and 0 fat.
  • One scoop (30 g) of Bioplex pure egg white powder. 23 grams of protein, 3 grams of carbs, and 0 fat.
  • Some frozen blueberries (maybe 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon of ground almond meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Drink within the first 1/2 hour after your workout

The other dried egg whites brand I found at Whole Foods is Bioplex (see photo below)Photo of Bioplex egg white pure protein powder

Preparation

I ended up with a big frothy mess that was almost impossible to drink. Great for waffles. Bad for drinking. Fewer, gentle shakes is the trick or have the patience to mix with a spoon or whisk. You can also add a bit more fruit and use your blender to make a fruit smoothie. But, I would only do that for the post-workout recovery drink. I think it would be too much for a pre-workout drink. Let me know how it works for you!

    says it is sweetened with sucralos

    Admin note: Only the flavored versions. You have to get the “Natural” one.

    Im Großen und Ganzen ist es bei dem Oberthema Pre & Post Workout Protein Recovery Drink that is Paleo!
    | Kill Fat Me wie ich es sehe sehr wichtig,
    dass die zahlreichen Artikel bis ins kleinste
    Detail kontrolliert werden, damit man nichts falsch versteht.

    Dies scheint hier auf der Seite 100%ig das Normalste der Welt zu sein. Genau deshalb schmöckere ich hier auch oftmals aufs Neue.
