Are Protein Shakes & Smoothies Healthy?
Protein shakes or smoothies are generally considered a healthy option, but it finally depends on the ingredients used to make it. Smoothies or shakes that have protein-rich and wholesome fresh ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, high quality protein powders, yogurt, seeds or other sources of healthy fats and fibers can be a nutritious and convenient option to go with!
As with any other food or snack, be mindful of products that contain a lot of added sugars or other unhealthy ingredients, as they can be incredibly high in calories and have low nutritional values.
