** This recipe makes a lot of stir fry sauce. I save the rest and use it to reheat leftovers.

You should also feel free to add or substitute any veggies of your choice. We’ve used broccoli, carrots, peas, and cabbage. All are delicious!

The Benefits of Creatine Monohydrate

We have a favorite post-workout shake right now that we whip up ourselves:

  • 1 cup of milk of your choice (whole, almond, …)
  • 1 tablespoon of Beekeeper’s Naturals Superfood Honey
  • 1 scoop of John’s Killer Protein
  • 1 tsp of Creatine Monohydrate
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon

A short list of some of the benefits of Creatine Monohydrate:

  • Creatine is an amino acid that is found naturally in muscle cells.
  • Creatine is a popular and effective supplement for sports performance and adding muscle mass
  • Creatine supplements increase your phosphocreatine stores, allowing you to produce more ATP energy to fuel your muscles during high-intensity exercise
  • Creatine monohydrate is one of the most extensively studied form of creatine
  • Vegetarians/vegans are likely to have significantly lower levels of creatine, so they will likely have a better than average response to creatine supplementation
  • Creatine supplementation can improve some properties of aging bone
  • For people over 50, creatine can have fat burning properties in addition to muscle and strength building
