A plant-based lifestyle offers several benefits, including:

1. Improved Health: Plant-based diets are often rich in nutrients, low in saturated fats and high in fibre, which can lead to better heart health, weight management and reduced risk of chronic diseases.

2. Environmental Impact: Choosing plant-based foods can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve water and contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendly way of living.

3. Animal Welfare: By avoiding animal products, plant-based lifestyles promote compassion for animals and reduce the demand for factory farming and its associated ethical concerns.

4. Ethical and Moral Values: Many people choose plant-based diets to align with their ethical and moral beliefs, valuing the wellbeing of animals and the planet.

5. Diverse Food Choice: Plant-based diets offer a wide variety of delicious and nutritious foods, encouraging culinary exploration and creativity.

6. Increased Energy: Plant-based diets can lead to higher energy levels, improved digestion and overall wellbeing.

Required daily protein intake can vary depending on factors such as age, sex, activity level and overall health. However, a general guideline is to aim for about 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. For example, if you weigh 70 kilograms (154 pounds), you might aim for about 56 grams of protein per day.

Keep in mind that athletes, pregnant or breastfeeding women and people with specific health goals may require more protein. It is best to consult with a healthcare provider or registered dietician for personalised recommendations based on individual needs and goals.

Protein is not only suitable but also essential during pregnancy. Protein is a crucial nutrient for both the mother and the developing baby. It plays a significant role in the growth and development of the baby's organs, muscles and tissues.

Plant-based protein sources can be safe and healthy for pregnant women, provided they are consumed in a balanced and varied manner. A well-planned plant-based diet can provide the necessary nutrients, including protein, for a healthy pregnancy.

Good sources of plant-based protein include legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas), tofu, tempeh, edamame, quinoa, nuts, seeds and whole grains. It's important to ensure you're getting a variety of these protein sources to ensure you're getting all the essential amino acids your body needs.

Consult with a healthcare provider or registered dietician to determine your specific protein needs during pregnancy, as they can provide personalised recommendations based on your health, dietary preferences and any potential complications.

Greenback's protein sources are made to the highest standard and use quality, natural ingredients. However, we recommend that you check with your healthcare provider before consuming our plant-based protein sources. There is limited research available on the effects of various supplements and protein powders during pregnancy and breastfeeding, so we exercise caution before declaring our products safe for consumption by pregnant and breastfeeding women. Please always seek professional advice first.

Pea protein is a popular plant-based protein source with several benefits:

1. High-Quality Protein: Pea protein is a complete protein source, meaning it provides all essential amino acids that the body needs for various functions, including muscle building and repair.

2. Digestibility: Pea protein is easily digestible and tends to be well-tolerated, even by individuals with dietary sensitivities or allergies. It's naturally free from common allergens like dairy and soy.

3. Vegan and Vegetarian-Friendly: Pea protein is plant-based and suitable for vegans and vegetarians, making it an excellent protein source for those who avoid animal products.

4. Muscle Support: Pea protein is a good source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), particularly leucine, which can promote muscle growth and recovery, making it popular among athletes and bodybuilders.

5. Weight Management: Pea protein can help with weight management due to its ability to increase feelings of fullness and reduce appetite, which may aid in weight loss or maintenance.

6. Heart Health: Pea protein is naturally low in saturated fat and cholesterol. It may contribute to heart health by helping to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

7. Hypoallergenic: As mentioned above, pea protein is hypoallergenic, making it a safe option for individuals with allergies or intolerances to other protein sources.

8. Sustainable: Pea protein is derived from yellow peas, which have a lower environmental impact compared to some other protein sources such as animal products.

Greenback products use pea protein as it is a valuable addition to a balanced diet, especially for those looking to boost their protein intake while following a plant-based or vegan lifestyle.

The timing of protein consumption in your workout schedule can have an impact on your fitness goals. Here are some general guidelines:

1. Pre-Workout: Consuming a small amount of protein before your workout can provide your muscles with amino acids for energy and recovery. A snack with both protein and carbohydrates, like yoghurt or a protein bar, about 30 minutes to an hour before exercise, can be beneficial.

2. Post-Workout: Consuming protein after your workout is important for muscle repair and recovery. It's often recommended to have a protein-rich meal or snack within 1-2 hours after your workout. This is a crucial window for muscle protein synthesis.

3. During Workout: For longer and more intense workouts, some athletes consume protein during exercise to maintain energy levels and reduce muscle breakdown. This is more common in endurance activities, such as long-distance running or cycling.

4. Daily Protein Intake: It's not just about timing; your overall daily protein intake is crucial. Make sure you're consuming an adequate amount of protein throughout the day to support your workout goals and daily activities.

Ultimately, the best timing for protein consumption can depend on your specific goals, your body's response and your personal preferences. It's a good idea to experiment and see what works best for you while ensuring that you meet your overall daily protein requirements.
