Recipe Ideas That Use Protein Powder

Looking for recipes that use protein powder? I have a collection of delicious recipe ideas made with my protein powder – Clean Lean Protein from NuzestKeep reading to discover some delicious recipes.

 When you are active and follow a plant-based diet, consuming enough quality protein can be hard. Sure you could eat those processed meat substitutes that are made with questionable ingredients but why? Those fake meats are expensive and most of them are made with soy and mushrooms. Having food allergies to soy, wheat, dairy, and mushrooms, makes finding allergy-friendly meals a challenge.

 So I am a big fan of using plant-based protein in recipes to make sure I get enough protein to keep my muscles strong for healthy aging. I am also all about eating clean food and the protein powder that I have used for years is Clean Lean Protein from Nuzest. And, YES, I do have a 15% discount code to share: MOMKNOWSBEST15

While I eat a mostly plant-based diet, I will eat fish a couple times a month, I love Nuzest for its nutrition and that it is awesome for those with food allergies.

My favorite way to eat oatmeal is with a scoop of Nuzest plain protein mixed in, then topped with cooked greens, chickpeas, seaweed, avocado, siracha sauce, and everything spice seasoning. Kind of like an oatmeal version of a sushi bowl. Oatmeal is a perfect rice substitute when I don't have time to make rice.
