02/17/11 – AMRAP 20

Today’s Recipe – Peanut Butter Cup Protein Smoothie –  Life As a Plate – Updated Disclaimer: This recipe has Stevia and protein powder in it.   AndreAnna, the author of Life As a Plate, only supports and promotes Whey protein from grass-fed, pastured cows (Here is her preferred whey) and natural sources of sugar.   Sugar gets demonized in the fitness community because of its overuse in the standard American diet.  However, if you are going to use sugar, use a moderate amount and choose truly natural sources, not a chemical derived from a natural source.  Two other companies that create Grass-Fed Whey Protein are Stronger Faster Healther and All Pro Science. I have tried All Pro Science, and it was decent.  I am going to try SFH next.  If you are tolerant of dairy, I consider grass-fed whey to be a good supplement to a clean diet if you are finding it hard to ingest enough calories.

  1. Also, on the subject of sugar – even though that article was about sugar alcohols – what’s the deal with honey? I know honey has a lot of sugar in it, but they don’t add actual sugar or sweeteners to it right?

    For example, 3 Gates is a big fan of organic honey in things like tea or greek yogurt, but is that pretty much the same as adding a teaspoon of sugar to coffee or is it a little better for you? I don’t think I can stop using it completely (a little bit isn’t so bad, right?), but I don’t want to rationalize and think I am being healthier than I really am either. So, I figured I’d get your input 🙂
