Whether you’re a busy professional on the run, a student on a budget, an athlete in training, or just a “regular” person who’s mindful of their health, the good news is that LIFT Protein Muffins are finally available nationwide.
Developed by a local mother-and-son team, Debbie and Zach Schleien. LIFT Protein Muffins are a gluten-free, Paleo offering for those interested in following a healthy lifestyle. They are also packed with 18-19g of protein. For those who don’t know, the Paleo diet is based on the types of foods consumed by our earliest ancestors, consisting mainly of protein–meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit–and excluding dairy or grain products and processed food.
According to the founders, followers of the Paleo Diet have too often been forced to sacrifice the pleasures of a flavorful taste experience in order to follow their dietary beliefs. But now, with the creation of LIFT Protein Muffins, followers of Paleo can enjoy a delicious, gluten-free product, completely free of artificial flavors, without the guilt. And, because each muffin is only about 400 calories, it serves as the perfect meal replacement for health-conscious folks on the go. They are the most convenient, on-the-go meal replacement.
A bit about the LIFT creators: Debbie Schleien is a certified Kripalu yoga teacher and volunteers at the Hope Soup Kitchen in Larchmont, NY where she prepares meals for over 200 people.
“I’ve always had a passion for cooking and baking for friends and family,” said Ms. Schleien. “After struggling for many years with my weight and up-and-down dieting, I’ve finally discovered Paleo and I can truthfully say that it has changed my life.”
Her son, Zach Schleien, is a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Following in his mother’s footsteps, Zach has been on the Paleo diet for four years.
“I’ve discovered that I have a passion for cooking healthy food that tastes delicious,” said Zach. “We’ve done a lot of research, and what we’ve learned absolutely proves that you don’t have to give up the joys of eating while taking charge of your health.”
LIFT Protein Muffins come in three flavors: Chocolate Zucchini, Apple Cinnamon, and Banana Chocolate. If you have trouble deciding on a flavor, you can also order a Sampler Pack, so you can try all three! Each muffin comes individually wrapped, making it a perfect alternative to traditional, gluten-filled bread products. Or, when there’s no time to cook, grab a muffin, microwave for less than a minute, and you have the perfect meal on-the-go.
