Shake It Up – Great Banana & Protein Shakes!

TIP: Keep and roast the leftover pumpkin seeds; they are a great source of fibre, magnesium, tryptophan, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Pumpkin & Protein

THIS SUPERFOOD DESERVES MORE THAN JUST ONE NIGHT A YEAR. TIME TO GET THE PUMPKIN OFF YOUR PORCH AND INTO YOUR KITCHEN!

What better way to embrace the autumn than with a pumpkin cinnamon protein shake? This superfood gets its vibrant orange colour from beta-carotene, a provitamin that can help improve eye health and exercise-induced asthma. Studies have also shown that a diet high in beta-carotene can even help prevent prostate and colon cancer!

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
