Oriya Organics Gather Paleo Vegan Protein

Paleo: Fad or Lifestyle

About six months ago I made a complete turn with my fitness and nutritional goals. Something I had never really tried or done before and a plan completely out of my norm. I started CrossFit. When I began doing CrossFit I conducted an extensive amount of research on the nutrition because you need to fuel your body to support the performance not the aesthetics. With that being said I found two types of nutrition programs to support performance: Paleo and the Zone Diet. What I found is that each has their benefits but above all else, in our everyday lives, we often struggle to obtain all the proper nutrition we need. This is where Oriya Organics Gather Paleo Vegan Protein helps me obtain proper nutrition without sacrificing my goals.

What a lot of people misunderstand about paleo diets and or lifestyles is that they are a fad. They automatically think it is the new fangled weight loss plan or way to be healthy. In actuality, Paleo, according to WebMD, MPH, and Registered Dietician Kathleen Zelman, is the way we all should eat. Fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, fish, and avoiding refined sugar. However, Paleo does say to avoid grains as this is a “hunter, gatherer” diet, but in my personal experience, certain grains and root vegetables such as potatoes provide a clean, filling and energetic form of carbohydrates which help fuel the body. While we can eat vegetables to receive protein and carbohydrates, the amounts we would have to eat are about the size of a farm animal. Compared to eating the farm animal and or supplementing, such as with Oriya Organics Gather Paleo Vegan Protein. I found in my research to health and wellness, is that we simply do not eat enough healthy proteins and or vegetables in our diets.

oriya gather, oriya organics, oriya paleo, #expogatherI was really excited to try the Oriya Organics Gather Paleo Vegan Protein. Not for the fact that it was organic or vegan or that it is a Paleo vegan protein, but it was a new protein source to add to my daily repertoire of foods. What I have found in trying various proteins is how they react with my body. Do they actually fuel me and keep me feeling full or do they cause gas, discomfort, bloating, and cause me to feel lethargic? I had my first shake the other day before a very heavy weight lifting session and I felt amazing! I did not feel overly full, gassy, and or pumped up on sugar like some protein shakes can often induce because they have so many artificial sweeteners and sugar to make them palatable.

Of particular note, Oriya Organics brands have a very “earthy” flavor because they utilize whole, plant based, ultra-clean foods. Some may have an aversion to the flavor and or texture, but I rather liked the thicker consistency and texture. I didn’t feel like I was drinking a watery protein shake. I love to mix mine with eight ounces of organic vanilla almond milk.

About Oriya Organics

Family-owned, 100% organic, plant protein supplement company growth surge due to customer demand for ultra-clean plant protein MA, athlete, he and I began experimenting with nutritionally dense foods and found that plant proteins are incredibly bio-available and easy on the digestive system. We also discovered the power of antioxidant-rich superfoods like spirulina and chlorella are high in protein, chlorophyll and nutrients. These whole food ingredients energize, heal and revitalize.

After Ryan retired from MMA, our family launched Oriya Organics because we knew our plant-based formulas delivered ultra-clean, high performance nutrition which optimally fuels anyone – from pro athletes to nutritionally-savvy moms looking for the cleanest and healthiest options for their family.

Oriya’s array of ultra-clean superfoods can be found at local grocers like Whole Foods, Fiesta Nutrition, Brazos Natural, and now found on Amazon. Another great way to supplement the foods we need in our diet without sacrificing our health and nutrition. Plus you can add this great supplement to your favorite baking or drink for the health boost. I like to create on-the-go snacks with a lot of my protein shakes for the simple fact I do not always have a shaker bottle handy or the availability to carry a shaker bottle. Here is an amazing recipe I found years ago when I started my clean eating and health journey, I hope you enjoy it as well:

    I used to use a protein supplement in my green drinks, but I forgot which kind. Peaceful Planet maybe? I didn’t really care for the chalky texture, but it tasted good.

    I haven’t supplemented with a protein shake. I usually snack on protein bars. or nuts. I think a shake might be enjoyable.

    I need some motivation to switch back to adding protein to my morning routine! I enjoy adding (non-gritty!) protein to a bit of hemp milk, strong brewed coffee and ice for a morning pick-up.

    I have supplemented with garden of Life’s protein shake. I like the convenience of it. I don’t like the price.

    I use protein powder, with banana usually and ice and almond milk. If i use chocolate protein powder, my husband likes pnut butter mixed in, that tastes really good too. protein shakes are great in the morning or in the afternoon if you are not too hungry but need something to power through the day.
