Livwell Raw Plant Protein Nutrition


I'm not one for buying protein powder; I've tried a few over the years but I didn't buy them on the regular. They are expensive and usually very highly processed. I also have a huge sweet tooth so I tend to overdo foods like protein powder because it's sweet. I do think they are a pretty good addition to one's diet as long as you get a good brand that is made with whole foods and organic, fair-trade ingredients. That's where Livwell comes in. The above photo was taken from their website; I'd like to take credit for that delicious looking smoothie but I cannot!


I was sent a sample of Livwell protein powder a while ago to try and I really liked it. I made smoothies with it and mixed the chocolate powder into my oatmeal and it was pretty awesome. I poured over Livwell's website and realized just how awesome the ingredients are. Livwell is made with a protein blend that includes brown rice protein, pea protein, sacha inchi and hemp. What is sacha inchi? It's a protein pod native to the Amazon that is 60% protein as well as omegas. All ingredients in the protein blend are organic.

The chocolate protein powder contains: protein blend (organic sprouted brown rice, organic yellow peas, organic sacha inchi, organic hemp), organic raw cacao, organic coconut sugar, organic vanilla bean, xanthan gum (for mixing), pink sea salt, organic stevia.

The ingredients are soy, gluten, dairy and sodium-free and are certified organic and vegan. They are also high in calcium, fiber, iron and protein. Livwell uses state-of-the-art protein separation, cold crafted and nutrient preserving techniques with no chemicals involved.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
