Double chocolate high-fiber post-workout shakes?? Sounds crazy, but it also sounds delicious! This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you a “Double Chocolate Paleo Protein Shake”. Once in a while I like to supplement with a Julian Bakery Paleo Protein shake after my workouts…. Why not? It’s GMO free, soy-free, and has just one carb! Plus it’s made with egg whites, so it’s 100% Paleo! Oh, and 20 grams of protein per serving works for me!
Today I’m adding in some Paleo Fiber – Konjac Plant Powder, to help fill me up and give me some added health benefits… Benefits that I didn’t know existed until I used the Google! I learned that konjac root contains vitamins such as iron, potassium, phosphorous, selenium and calcium…. It also has amino acids and polyunsaturated fats, along with being able to help clean the intestines while removing toxins in the body. I had no idea! But wait, there’s more! The glucomannan fiber (the main ingredient in konjac root) can help regulate blood sugar, lower LDL cholesterol, and can help you lose weight.
1 scoop Chocolate Paleo Protein
1 cup coconut water, filtered water, coconut milk, or other liquid of your choice
4 pieces Paleo Chocolate, melted
Melt Paleo Chocolate in a small bowl
Blend well, pour, and enjoy.
With some added benefits from Paleo Chocolate, along with added dark & rich 83% cacao, this shake gets wild and crazy! Dark chocolate has lots of anti-oxidants, it’s good for your heart and brains through increased blood flow, and helps control blood sugar. Plus if it makes you smile, that’s a huge benefit right there! Endorphins are a good thing!
We blend it right into the mix; I opted for coconut water, but feel free to go with whatever floats your Paleo boat! Once consumed, I quickly felt full, not stuffed or bloated. I was good to go, and I just enjoyed a very dark tasting Paleo Protein shake! Plus, with all of my food-sensitivities and auto-immune issues, I didn’t get one side-effect, which says a lot for these Paleo products that Julian Bakery sells on their site and in their stores.
So if you are looking for a product that can help you lose weight, and/or give you a ton of health benefits, look no further than Paleo Fiber – Konjac Plant Powder. Plus, I am really thrilled to see that the glucomannan fiber also acts as a prebiotic in the intestine… If you’ve been reading my blogs, you probably know that pre and probiotics are extremely important to me, along with gut health. Thumbs up for promoting a healthy gut!! And what a great way to enjoy the Paleo Fiber – Konjac Plant Powder, combined with Paleo Protein and Paleo Chocolate!
