Hi, Friends! I am super excited to share with you guys about an AMAZING [Canadian] Kickstarter! I’m talking about Coast Protein! Have you heard of them? Because you should!
This company is super unique and has a fun story behind it, that you can read about here. If we are being straightforward with one another (which I hope we are 😉 ) their protein contains something called Organic Cricket Flour. And if you’re wondering – oh what a weird name for flour… well, it actually means exactly what it says. It’s a flour made from crickets.
Did your jaw drop a little? Mine did too when I first found out, so I wanted to know more! Why Cricket flour (or better yet – why crickets?)? They are super nutritious – that’s why! High in protein, calcium, iron and Omega-3 fats, among others! They contain 9 essential amino acids. And So. Much. More. Read more about the why? here.
So… Coast Protein makes Protein Bars and Protein Powder – and guess what! They are so dang good! Seriously! I tried out their Peanut Butter Bar and their Dark Chocolate Raisin Bar and was wowed! These bars were the perfect post- workout snack to up my carb and protein intake. I really love having a bar after workouts because the optimal time to get your protein in is within about 20 minutes of your workout, and I’m usually still on the go running errands or getting home – so these are AMAZING!
And if your thinking – ew bugs how gross, don’t! Countries all over the world consume insects as a staple in their diet, and guess what? Most products in Canada have a slight allowance for insect parts in their products (especially oats!). So you have most likely been unknowingly consuming some insects here and there along the way!
I am super impressed by Coast Protein and cannot wait to see what more great things come from them down the line!
With Love, Meg
