The power of protein. Our bodies need it for bones, muscles, and body chemicals, among other things. Because the body does not store protein, it’s important to add it in throughout the day. It is especially beneficial when working out because protein can be converted by the body into glucose for energy. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite protein packed pre-workout snacks: Oatmeal with Vanilla Silk Soymilk and cinnamon apples.
Since oats contain more protein than any other common grain, they are the perfect pre-workout snack. Substitute regular milk for Silk Soymilk, which includes 8 grams of plant-powered protein per serving, no cholesterol, and naturally lower saturated fat. It’s really a win-win for your workouts.
Additional Silk Soymilk benefits include:
- No high-fructose corn syrup
- No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
- Enrolled in or verified by the Non-GMO Project
- Responsibly produced
- Free of gluten, casein, peanuts, egg
Silk Soymilk is also a great dairy and lactose alternative, plus it taste delicious! It works great over cereal, in smoothies and shakes, or on its own. Did you know you get 50% more calcium than dairy milk? That’s right, Silk Soymilk has 45% of the daily value of calcium per serving versus 30% in dairy milk.
