Fruit and Protein Shake Together???

#1 Postby Bikinidivame » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:35 pm

Hey guys, I have been vegan for about half a year, and recently became raw vegan. I eat mostly fruits now with a bit of veggies, but I would still love to incorporate my raw vegan protein shakes, and with a show coming up in 12 weeks I am desperate for a good answer.
Is it good to have fruit and protein shakes together? or should I have fruits alone, and my shakes alone?

As far as I know this is really good, because the sugar cointained in the fruits(mostly fructose) triggers an isulin spike that helps the transport of the protein to your muscles(the protein alone should do this role, but the sugar really helps here).
If it doesn't exceed your carb count for the day I believe that there is no problem.
