Naked Nutrition’s NAKED CHOC PB- Product Review
March 7, 2019
When I got pregnant with my first son in 2014, my husband and I started to make some major changes regarding our health. Since we were going to be in charge of caring for this new tiny life that God was entrusting to us, we got serious about how we wanted to protect his life and see his life thrive in the best way possible (including our own) with how God intended us to live. I like to call this “God’s Original Design.”
Thus, the research began. We were blown away to find out about what was actually in our water supply, how so many Americans are deficient in vital vitamins and minerals because of the depleted soil content and consuming GMO foods, and the long list of harmful chemicals and toxins in beauty and personal products. The more we learned, the more our eyes were opened to the truth that we needed to become more alert and aware of what we put inside our bodies, on our bodies, and the environment around us. After all, as Christians, we believe our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). God only gave us one body, so it was time to start taking better care of it!
In addition to doing a thorough inventory of our personal products such as shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, and soaps, we began eating more fresh, organic produce, increased our (distilled) water intake to almost a gallon a day, started regular juice and parasitic cleanses, incorporated solid supplements to our daily lifestyle, and got pretty serious about working out consistently- we both saw such a turn-around in our over-all health and well-being and have not looked back since.
Most importantly, we became “label readers.” If we could not pronounce the ingredient, we tried our best to avoid purchasing the product or we researched the ingredient.
Simple ingredients is what we look for in almost everything we buy now.
That’s why when Ryan from Naked Nutrition reached out to me about their products, specifically protein powders, I was extremely happy to try a sample. This company lives up to its name! They sell products with the purest ingredients and do not try to hide anything from customers.
From their website:
From Grass-Fed Whey Protein to Pea Protein Powder to Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder, Naked Nutrition provides the purest supplements. Our proteins are loaded with essential amino acids and no artificial sweeteners or colors. Our commitment to offering the best protein powders and supplements extends to all our products including Powdered Peanut Butter, Casein Protein, Creatine Monohydrate and more. No additives means your body gets more of what it needs and not what big agribusinesses use to pad their bottom line. Take your nutrition to the next level with Naked Nutrition.
As I looked through the list of products that I possibly wanted to try, they had me at peanut butter. And I cannot forget to mention their Naked Choc PB also has organic cacao as an ingredient.
Powdered peanuts and cacao. No added sugars or salts.
Y’all, it tastes like peanut butter AND chocolate?! You can’t go wrong with that combo!
It does not have very many grams of protein (only 6g as well as
0.9 Grams of BCAA’s) per serving, so if you are looking for a protein powder with something closer to 20g or more, you can either try adding 3-4 scoops to your shake or simply add it to another plain protein or vanilla protein powder that you already use at home to add more flavor.
The other day, I just wanted a quick snack after breakfast, so I added a scoop of Naked Choc PB protein powder to my favorite chocolate cashew/ almond milk. Thank you, Trader Joe’s! It was totally chocolaty peanut buttery yumminess that gave me a nice morning boost!
OH! And you can also use the powder to bake protein bites or even brownies! You don’t even need to head to Pinterest to look up recipes, guys. Naked Nutrition has you covered- they have a list of recipes for their powders on their site. I am so ready to get to baking! Yummmm….
If you are like our family who looks for pure, simple, nothing-to-hide ingredients, head to http://Nkdnutrition.com and check out their other products! Your body will thank you!
Thank you, Ryan, for sending me this powder so I can have even better results from my work-outs, all while keeping my tummy happy with its healthy ingredients!
