Greg Powered By Plant Protein – Here’s How I Help.

Drawing artist I’m not… my specialty in art is in the kitchen. ;)
Here’s my latest batch of raw vegan protein powder for my super strong n sexy husband, Greg. You might remember a post I wrote years ago about the protein grenades I made him. Well, to make it easier on me, I now just mix some different protein powders and other add-ins, in a big bowl (the recipe changes a bit each time), and then I put it all in a big jar like this. From there, he takes about 3 to 4 scoops per protein shake (he likes a high amount of plant powered protein in his diet), and he drinks 2 to 4 of these a day. This particular blend is mostly Sun Warrior with additions of hemp , raw cacao powder , cinnamon, turmeric, maca , and he shou wu and astragalus (chinese tonic herbs – we’re big into tonic herbs these days for longevity and taking our health to new levels – that’s a future post though – I keep saying that don’t I?).
I get a lot of emails asking about Greg’s workout routine and diet. The gist is that he eats a lot like me. Plant based, moderate to high raw, organic, and protein shakes. He sometimes goes for a shake while I make a whole food meal for myself. He loves his shakes, what can I say? Ever since he started with Sun Warrior, he’s been hooked. It’s the magic bullet for him. He builds lean mass and feels strong.
His workout routine is consistent, too. He does 3 days in the gym, a day off, 3 days in the gym. One day is chest/tri. Next day is back/bi. Last day are the legs. Shoulders are in there somewhere :) He also runs barefoot in Vibrams and likes to do a little swimming when time permits. Ideally the run and swim are the same day and he calls it his “surf-n-turf.” And, throughout the day I see him dropping to the floor for push-ups or using our chin up bar to bust out some pull-ups – my man is strong. Oh! And now that we have a Bellicon Rebounder he has been using that, too. It’s one of the best purchases we’ve ever made.
Happy Holidays, Everyone! XOXO
