Protein Goes Paleo Part 2

Protein Goes Paleo Part 2
Clean & Green
Take sunflower seeds, for example. In addition to providing vitamin E and other essential nutrients, sunflower protein is a good source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which help the body create muscle tissue. Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of healthy fats that support the body’s ability to control hidden inflammation, while flaxseeds contain substances that protect the circulatory system from inflammatory damage.
Seeds aren’t the only sources of Paleo-friendly protein. One reason almonds have become so popular is their reputation for enhancing heart health. Coconut, most popular now for the liquid it contains, yields a meat full of healthy fats and compounds with cholesterol-lowering properties.
Because the whole emphasis of the Paleo diet is on the way of eating that predates modern agriculture, it makes sense to find Paleo-friendly protein powders that are organic and free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). There are now formulations that include proteins from sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, flaxseed, almond and coconut powders without powders such as pea, which as a legume doesn’t meet Paleo standards. Cutting-edge formulas also include enzymes that help to unlock protein’s energy-boosting potential.
Adopting a Stone Age diet doesn’t mean having to give up the portability and convenience of protein supplementation. Just make sure the powder you pick fits your Paleo lifestyle.
