When I first moved to London, I was on a mission for a “clean” protein powder that I could stock up on. I tried and tested a few brands but never found one I was totally happy with….aaaaaand then I started working at Grill Market Lomax in Chelsea and was introduced to Neat Nutrition. It also happens to be their 1st birthday this weekend – so HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUYS!!!! Big Love!
Call me an addict because I use it EVERY DAY without fail, sometimes (actually most of the time) twice a day because it is just so versatile and delicious. Breakfast, shakes, snacks, sweet treats and desserts. Not only does it have a great nutritional profile but it 100% tastes great without the added nasties.
Why Neat? When you look at a protein powder you should go straight for the ingredients. First hot tip, the less ingredients the better and this goes for most things really. And secondly, it should only contain things you can pronounce ie. not aspartame or acesulfame potassium. These things might mean ‘sugar free’ ‘carb free’ but they are detrimental to your overall health and an absolute bitch for your stomach to digest. Look for natural sweeteners if any like stevia and xylitol that won’t harm your body and anything artificial is a no no.
Here are my top 3 Neat recipes. Aren’t they neat ? (insert laughing emoji to pass awkward silence..)
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER ZUCCHINI OATS (ZOATS)
1/2 cup rolled oats (or quick oats)
1 cup almond milk (or soy, dairy, coconut etc)
1/2 small courgette / zucchini
1 scoop Neat Nutrition chocolate whey powder
1/2 cup greek yoghurt
1 Tbs of peanut butter
raspberries and almond flakes (oh and cinnamon) for topping
Grate the zucchini and combine in a bowl with the oats and milk. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir and then another 2 minutes until creamy, fluffy and cooked.
In a small mug/bowl whip up the protein, yoghurt and peanut butter and blob on top of the zoats. Sprinkle with berries, nuts and cinnamon.
LADIES BERRY PROTEIN SMOOTHIE BOWL
2 frozen bananas
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop Neat Nutrition berry whey
1 Tbs almond butter
1 tsp maca powder (great for ladies hormones)
Combine all ingredients into a blender and whiz until thick and creamy. You want it to be nice and thick so you can eat it with a spoon.
Top with fresh strawberries and a sprinkle of seeds.
