Plant Based Protein You should Try

Yes, I am a dietitian with a passion for helping people achieve peak experiences! Did you know I also am committed to reducing the amount of junk foods on the shelves by helping food companies on how to make foods that will have positive impacts on the health of people and our food system?

In late 2018 I kicked of consulting services that have since resulted in some very cool foods that help nourish fuel people! I work with great intentioned food and supplement companies looking to make a difference but often are uncertain about nutrition. While these companies pay me to advise them on ingredients and nutritional integrity, they don’t pay me to talk about them with you. I only do this if I believe them to have created something that serves a nutrition purpose. With that late me share with you this great protein source with a really cool story and Montana roots!

Natures fynd   / Discovered in Nature, Crafted in Montana, Grow in Chicago / makes foods with a fungi protein originally discovered in Yellowstone National Park!

Fy is a nutritional fungi protein, and a complete protein, with all 9 essential amino acids present and accounted for! Being orginially from Montana anything crafted there peeks my interest. This is an entirely new discovery. The original microbe was found by a researcher studing life forms in the geysers of Yellowstone National Park.  With breakthrough fermentation technology that uses uses just a fraction of the water, land, and energy compared to traditional protein sources, Fy protein was born. Products made with this protein are in select stores and include cream cheese and breakfast patties. Can’t wait to see what they make next!
