How to Take Protein Shakes

How to Take Protein Shakes

When is the best time to drink a protein shake? How should I be consuming a protein shake? If you’re asking these questions, look no further and keep reading to learn more about the secret of incorporating protein shakes into your day.

Protein Shakes are used for a variety of reasons, including to lose weight, build muscle, or improve overall health and wellness. Here are the best times to take protein shakes depending on your health goals.

  1. Replace a Meal. We’re often too busy to whip up a nutrient-packed meal on the go. This is where meal replacement shakes come into play. You can easily replace breakfast, lunch, or dinner with the meal replacement shake in less than a few seconds! It’s important to look for a meal replacement shake that is high protein to help fill you up. High fiber content is also important to provide satiety and help with healthy digestion. OWYN’s Meal Replacement Shakes are rich in protein, fiber, and 23 vitamins and minerals to keep you full and nourished without loading on calories.
  2. After a Workout. Consuming protein after a workout will help speed up the muscle recovery process. The best time to consume protein is 30 minutes to an hour after working out. This will help replenish and build muscles that were broken down during exercise. Protein shakes are a great choice for a quick post-workout snack that you can have ready in your gym bag. Plus, drinking a protein shake can help replenish lost fluids from sweating. OWYN’s High Protein shake contains 35 grams of protein and delivers all essential amino acids to help your body start repairing after your workout.
  3. As an Afternoon Snack. When 2 o’clock in the afternoon rolls around, we start to feel sluggish and lazy. A major sign of fatigue is a result of low protein intake and the need for energy intake. Drinking a protein shake in the afternoon can boost your energy levels and get you through the rest of the day with even more energy than you expect. OWYN’s Protein Shakes are a quick and delicious way to fuel up and power through the afternoon.
  4. In Your Breakfast Smoothie. As we’ve all heard, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This means that we must include all the important nutrients, especially protein, in this meal. Protein has been shown to be one of the least consumed macronutrients in breakfast meals specifically. Starting your day off right by adding an OWYN Protein Shake as the fluid in your smoothie can help you achieve your personal, nutritional, and fitness goals for the day.

Protein Shakes come in handy when you need a boost of protein after a workout, when you’re driving to your next destination, or when you lack the time to cook a protein-rich meal. OWYN’s Protein and Meal Replacement Shakes are made with clean ingredients that provide all essential amino acids and other important nutrients. The delicious plant protein shakes are an easy, convenient way to get your protein requirements in!
