Here at Joie de Vivre we are already fans of the Marvellous Superfood brand. They are a small family run business based in Wales that create wonderful little packs of superfoods from maca and spirulina, to coconut oil and of course their wonderful Wellbeing blend (a blend of 7 organic raw superfoods). Their aim? To share the benefits they have experienced with these products, such as increased vitality, fewer cravings for nutrient deficient foods, aiding recovery from illness and fewer colds and flues.
Cardio exercise and strength training plays a large part of our lifestyle at JDV, meaning it is important for us to include a good amount of high quality protein as part of our daily nutrition. We have found that a convenient and effective way of doing this is to include protein powders within our diet. When working out regularly, including protein powders as part of your daily balanced diet can help with muscle recovery, growth and maintenance; increase satiety and deliver essential nutrients to the body. However, many powders out there on the market can include a scary concoction of additives and sweeteners to make them taste good, that we would prefer not to put in our body. We were therefore delighted to hear that Marvellous Superfood were developing their own “Super Protein”. A blend of protein rich superfoods (red and yellow maca, goji, lacuma and beetroot) mixed with a hemp based protein, and it’s all organic of course! This protein is suitable for vegans and is gluten, dairy and yeast free – what’s not to love! We love to mix ours with our green juices or simply with coconut milk as a post-workout shake.
If you’re looking for a super healthy protein source which is artificial and processed sugar and sweetener free, then this is your bag! Head to www.marvelloussuperfood.co.uk to purchase their products.
