Millennials have been known to be the “on-the-go” generation, and look for snacks and beverages that fit their lifestyle needs. Ready-to-drink protein shakes have gained traction in the past decade for their portability and health benefits, but they are often loaded with sugars, syrups, and saturated fats that can end up doing more harm to the body than good. The solution: Plant-based protein drink, OWYN – Only What You Need.

Former professional athletes, husband and wife duo Jeff Mroz and Kathryn Moos know the importance of a balanced diet and doing your body good. They saw the cultural shift to focus on the things that truly matter that stemmed in the food and beverage industry with a focus on clean eating. This type of diet is ingrained in every athlete’s brain from a young age, but Kathryn and Jeff recognized that there was a need for a product that also appealed to the everyday person that simply wanted to lead a healthier lifestyle.

The pair developed OWYN, a plant-based protein drink that packs a punch with 20 grams of protein per serving. The plant-based drink protein market has been on the rise ever since people started to become more aware of what they were putting into their body and insistent on making a change. Jeff and Kathryn wanted to create a drink that had the same nutritional value provide dairy-based protein drinks without any of the bad stuff like saturated and trans fats that can lead to weight gain and high cholesterol. They also wanted it to be a “clean eats” staple – no added sugars or preservatives here. To top it off, the vision behind OWYN was to never compromise on taste, meaning a chocolate protein shake that actually tastes like chocolate milk.

What Exactly Is In My OWYN Protein Drink?

Plant-based protein drink sounds all good and healthy, but what exactly does it mean? OWYN’s blend is made is made from peas, organic pumpkin, and organic flaxseed, making it easier to digest than whey protein. The drink also manages to contain superfoods such as kale, spinach, and broccoli to provide nutrients like vitamin C, magnesium, and fiber, without detection from even the pickiest of eaters.

You’ll also find half your daily intake of omega-3 in your favorite OWYN protein shake which has been known to support eye and brain health and help prevent heart disease. The 100% plant based protein blend delivers all nine essential amino acids which are vital for functions like tissue repair, nutrient absorption, preventing muscle loss and can even improve mood and sleep. The company is also dedicated to Top 8 Allergen Testing to ensure that their products are always free from traces of nuts, milk, wheat, eggs, and other major allergens. This gives customers peace of mind when selecting the product off the shelf for themselves or their children.

All of this nutritional goodness with a taste that can’t be beat sounds too good to be true, but lucky for us it’s the truth! With classic flavors available like Dark Chocolate and Smooth Vanilla, and even Cold Brew Coffee with organic caffeine equivalent to a regular cup of coffee, OWYN beats out the competition by appealing to athletes, adults, and children alike. No need to refrigerate prior to opening so throw it in your gym bag for an after workout drink or take it for an on-the-go snack.
