Compared to other protein powders, most are NOT certified like Oriya.
- The other’s contain legumes – pea & soy – which are not certified paleo ingredients.
- Dairy, natural flavors, synthetic nutrients and processed sweeteners are not paleo either.
Oriya‘s plants are wild-crafted from seeds: pumpkin, sunflower, chia, hemp – and berries: cranberry and goji. Nothing else.
20 grams of protein per serving, full of amino acids.
How Oriya came to be:
While Ryan’s brother (Johnathan) watched him compete as a Pro Martial Arts athlete, they experimented with nutritionally dense foods. They learned that the proteins we bio-available and easy on the digestive system. The two discovered that certain foods helped to revitalize and energize. The two foods that they realized done that were the chia seeds and goji berries. Both, which are antioxidants.
After they had all of that figured out, Ryan retired from MMA. Their family developed and delivered ultra-clean and highly nutritious protein powders for everyone, even entire families. It has also been created for the savvy mom to help them and their families to stay healthy.
My thoughts on the Oriya Protein powder:
Not only do I really like that it is certified to be Non-GMO, paleo, vegan and organic, it only contains 6 ingredients! There is very little flavor, if any at all. This powder was easy to combine with the recipe that I created. It was so easy in fact that NO one out of all of the people who tried it even knew it was there until I told them! I had a friend, several people who were here at the house, my mother and one other person to try it.
Keep in mind, I had tried something like this once before and it NEVER turned out right. I ended up throwing that one out the door. This one IS a keeper!
Here is the recipe that I created!
Double Chocolate Protein S’mores with Oriya Gather Paleo Plant Protein powder!
- 5 packs of chocolate Graham crackers
- 1 cup melted butter (of your choice)
- 2 bags of chocolate chips (milk or dark)
- 1 bag of marsh mellow (small ones work best)
- 2 scoops of Oriya protein powder
Start by melting the chocolate with the Oriya in it. Stir occasionally to be sure that it’s mixed well. I used the wonder pot to melt the chocolate. If you’re not sure how, YouTube works wonders!
Grind up the 5 packs of Graham crackers. Melt the butter and poor into the Graham crackers. Flip them around until they look a little bit lumpy and the butter is worked into them well.
Step 3. Lube the pie pan or muffin pan. Press the Graham crackers (or should I say powder) into the pan. Press them tightly into the bottom. Bake on 350 degrees for 15 minutes to help firm it.
By the time this is done, the chocolate and protein powder should be melted enough to finish combining. Remove the pans from the oven and place the chocolate over the Graham cracker. Since it is already melted, it will not take much longer for it to cook. Place the marsh mellows on top of the chocolate.
Cook another 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
Remove from the oven and let sit for 45 minutes before trying to remove it. That will give the chocolate enough time to firm up.
