Breakfast Our Whey: Using Protein Powder to Make Breakfast Healthier
We’re making your mornings better this month as we kick-off #BreakfastOurWhey! According to Reader’s Digest Best Health, adding whey protein powder to food slows the release of sugars into the blood stream, which helps keep insulin levels in check. You can use this trick any time you eat foods with a high glycemic index to lower the blood sugar impact.
Every Tuesday this month, check back with us for a new way to add whey protein into your healthy morning routine. Share your recipes and tricks with us using the #BreakfastOurWhey hashtag and we may even share some of our favorites posts on our social pages!
