what are the benefits of this dish?

Sunflower lecithin provides choline, a vitamin-like nutrient needed to produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is important for boosting memory. Choline is also an integral component of the myelin sheath that protects our neurons.

Protein powders are a useful strategy for increasing protein content and thus helping stabilize blood sugar levels and keeping you full longer. A protein-rich smoothie can act as meal replacement or a recovery drink after a workout. 

It is important to buy high-quality powder, without fillers, additives, and artificial sweeteners. Non-denatured whey protein, especially from pastured-raised cattle is a great choice and one of the most bioavailable sources of amino acids. Best to avoid it if you don’t tolerate dairy well,  although many people may have trouble digesting it.
