If you are into health and wellness and live on social media then chances are that you have come across our Happy Way products range. Heck, you have probably saved a few of our wickedly delicious and equally healthy recipes and refrained from licking your screen on more than one occasion. We don’t blame you. You are only human. We also don’t blame you for not having made a purchase yet. With thousands of protein ranges available on the market, choosing the right one could be likened to finding a gym you are willing to commit to long-term. Painful when you realise that you have made the wrong choice and your hard-earned money has gone down the drain.
So if you have been refreshing your Happy Way feed and waiting to make your first purchase, here are a few things to consider.
Let’s talk clean ingredients
When it comes to choosing the right protein powder for you, all the hype in the world shouldn’t take precedence over one key element – the ingredients. If the back of your protein powder packet reads like a short scientific essay with words you can't pronounce and numbers you don’t understand, then a few warning bells should be going off. At Happy Way we pride ourselves on sourcing the most natural and organic ingredients on offer. In fact, if you take the time to read our ingredients list it reads more like a short love story, with all the delicious trimmings. Our protein powder range is made using NZ pasture fed whey protein concentrate while our vegan range is made using pea and rice protein isolate. This means there are no genetically modified ingredients or unnecessary fillers to worry about.
If you are consuming protein on a regular basis some of the other ingredients you should keep an eye out for include dextrin, glucose, gluten, soy proteins, vegetable oils, thickeners and fillers. This is because when consumed over an extended period of time these ingredients can all contribute to weight gain through an overconsumption of nutrient empty calories.
… And going the extra mile.
We hate to brag but HAPPY WAY organic supplements exist to unlock the universe using not only complete sources of protein but an exciting mix of superfoods as well.
Superfoods are nutritionally dense and usually contain antioxidants and other beneficial cancer fighting, immune building properties. Traditionally, you would be promoted to add these supplements into your smoothies and protein recipes. However, we love to go the extra mile and have included a superfood mix in all of our protein powders. This is a mix of chia seeds (those tiny little ant looking things in your powders), maca and psyllium husk.
Now if you’re wondering why we have chosen these superhero ingredients, let us give you a little introduction. Chia seeds are nutrient dense, low-calorie super seeds which are packed full of antioxidants, fibre and quality protein. They not only work to keep you feeling fuller for longer, but they also provide plenty of benefits in the way of heart health. Now our next superfood is not only good for sexy times, but maca is also shown to help boost your endurance at the gym and keep your mood elevated throughout the day. Psyllium husk works to help regulate your blood sugar levels, promotes satiety and helps keep you regular – and once you get past the age of 30, there is no shame in admitting that brings you joy!
Our vegan protein powders offer a complete amino acids profile
Whether due to dietary requirements or personal choice, some of you will opt for a vegan protein powder. Rice and pea protein powders offer a suitable alternative, as they are both 100% plant-based and perfect for vegans and vegetarians. However, it is important to note that not all sources of protein are made equal and on their own pea and rice sources don’t offer a complete amino acid profile. As an example, pea protein powder on its own is low in the key amino acid 'methionine'.
Rather than having to balance and count your amino acids, HAPPY WAY uses a mixture of pea and rice proteins in our entire vegan range to ensure you obtain all 9 essential amino acids. In creating a complete protein source, we make sure that you are receiving all the same benefits of whey protein in the way of muscle recovery, muscle synthesis and all the added benefits that come with ensuring an adequate intake of protein in your diet.
Our fat burners haven’t had any work done on them either…
Our entire fat burners range is 100% free from artificial colours, sweeteners and preservatives. Our fat burners are so squeaky clean that we use them as an afternoon pick me up when we want an alternative to our coffee. With no added sugar, it’s the natural and low-calorie way to increase your muscle strength, to boost your performance and to intensify your workout.
