In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Andrew Brindle all about the ins and outs of protein powders. One of the most asked questions we get is “what protein powder do you use?” Our answer is usually “we don’t”. Sure, we have a jug sitting in our pantry that barely gets touched, saved for the days we are literally out of groceries. But the truth is, when we actually do use protein powder for the occasional smoothie or banana nice cream, we want it to be the best of the best. So we called on Andrew to let us know about protein powder myths, what could be in the jug that we just don’t want and why so many people get that bloated feeling after certain shakes.
Andrew Brindle is the 35-year-old founder and Chief Formulator of Real Pro Life Nutrition. He started the company 3 years ago when he saw a gap in the market for quality plant-based vegan protein. Andrew is based in Las Vegas, Nevada and is an avid plant-based fitness buff and jiu-jitsu competitor. He is a really smart guy and he’s not afraid to disclose the industry’s secrets because he has nothing to hide.
We wanted to let you know that we have no financial affiliation with Real Pro Life Nutrition. Andrew Brindle is such a source of knowledge on this aged old protein powder topic, and we knew he was the guy to have on the show to help answer everyone’s questions.
