Have you tried Egg White Protein?

by Emerald City Smoothie

Egg White Protein Powder

According to a 2010 review published in the "Canadian Journal of Cardiology," egg white protein is classified as a valuable, high-quality protein. Egg whites contain all of the essential amino acids your body needs each day to perform day-to-day functions and maintain your muscle mass. According to the USDA, one large egg white provides you with 3.6 grams of high-quality protein and only 16 calories. Increasing your portion to four large egg whites would give you 14.4 grams of complete protein and 68 calories. The Institute of Medicine recommends men get at least 56 grams and women eat at least 46 grams of protein each day.

You don’t have to crack and separate individual eggs to get your daily dose of egg white protein. You can choose high quality pasteurized (meaning safe from potentially harmful organisms, such as salmonella) egg white protein in powder form which can be added to your favorite smoothie. Ask your Emerald City Smoothie barista to replace Whey protein with Egg White protein in all your favorite smoothies.
