Finding a clean, organic protein powder is NOT an easy task. I actually gave up on adding protein to my smoothies as there weren’t any I could find that passed my ingredient criteria and tasted good. I really am tired of eating eggs all the time for breakfast though, so a good protein would help mix things up for me in the morning. So, when I heard from FortyPlus Nutrition about testing out their products and sharing my experience with you, I immediately checked the ingredients of the product. As soon as I saw how clean they were, I jumped at the chance to try them out. They graciously supplied me with 2 bags of their Organic Plant Protein Blend in exchange for sharing my thoughts with you.
Let me start by sharing the ingredient list of their Organic Plant Protein Blend, because that’s the most important part: Organic pea protein, organic extra rich raw cacao powder, organic raw hemp protein, organic brown rice protein, and organic de-bittered stevia. That’s it! It doesn’t get much cleaner than that. All of the ingredients are certified organic and are suitable for both gluten-free and vegan diets. These products are for anyone looking to add healthy protein to their diet, I’d feel fine even allowing my kiddos to have this in their smoothies.
Next, the taste test. I don’t normally drink protein that’s not in a shake, but to get a real feel for the taste I put a scoop in water and shook it up. It actually tasted really good just on its own! I love that it still has a sweet taste without any added sugar or syrup solids, like many other proteins contain. I have hypoglycemia, so I have to watch my carbs. This fits perfectly with my diet as it only has 3 net carbs after the 4 grams of fiber per scoop.
I also tried this out in a smoothie recipe with frozen berries, frozen banana, coconut milk, chia seeds and 1 scoop of protein. It tasted like a chocolate banana shake, delicious! This is definitely a product that I’ll continue using.
You’ve got to read the owner’s story on how his business got started. Dirk totally turned his health around by eating clean and it inspired him to create FortyPlus line of products. I love being able to support businesses that begin with a passion for healthy eating.

Rejuvenate Your Health Before It’s Too Late
Health Insight, Recipes, Organic Plant Protein Blends and Superfoods for Men and Women
Forty Plus Nutrition, LLC, a Nevada based corporation, is as an e-commerce provider of plant protein blends and superfood powders to adults concerned about their health. With a focus on adults over who are interested in rejuvenating their health and making informed choices about the food they eat, Forty Plus Nutrition offers health information and insight, smoothie and juicing recipes and a line of organic superfood powders and proteins that offer nutrient dense, plant-based alternatives to the more traditional American meat-based diet.
Many adults find that they have neglected their health over the years as they pursued careers and raised families. Many of these people experience a sudden and shocking realization that they have not taken care of their bodies the way they should have. Instead they’ve completely focused on work, income and raising their children. Then one day they look in the mirror and see all the extra pounds they’ve added, or they struggle to climb the stairs, or they’ve lost all their energy or sex drive. For others, bad habits and addictions are starting to take their toll on their bodies.
According to the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, nearly half of all U.S. adults have high blood pressure and are encouraged to eat healthier and exercise more often rather than take medicine.
Forty Plus Nutrition was launched to address this very common phenomenon when middle aged people realize they better start getting healthy quickly or risk long term health problems or even early death.
Dirk Foster, founder of Forty Plus Nutrition, developed the idea of helping people at this important juncture in their life after his own recovery from years of bad habits and health problems.
“I was 43 years old when I realized I might not live to 50 if I kept living the way I was,” stated Dirk. “At the time I was 30 lbs. overweight, lethargic, frequently sick, had skin problems, constant stomach pain and indigestion, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I lived on a diet of fast food, red meat, refined sugar, too much alcohol and cigarettes. My health was terrible and it negatively impacted every facet of my life including how I slept, how I interacted with other people and most importantly, how I felt about myself.”
“I was trapped in a daily grind of work, poor diet, lousy sleep and bad health,” Dirk continued. “After years of struggling with health problems I finally hit rock bottom. I couldn’t stand how I felt. I had nowhere to go but up. Thus began my exploration and study of healthy, clean eating and a lifestyle that includes regular exercise and meditation. I gave up a lot of bad habits along the way including red meat, alcohol and cigarettes and food became my passion and my medicine.”
Since then, Dirk has lost all the extra weight, his blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal and he lives a super healthy lifestyle with his wife in the Sierra Mountains where he hikes, swims, fishes, ski’s and meditates.
Forty Plus Nutrition was developed to help people make smart choices about the food they eat and to rejuvenate their health after years of neglect. The formula is simple: what we eat affects every part of our body, mind and spirit. So why not eat healthier foods, in particular superfoods and plant based proteins to realize quick results, feel better, lose weight, increase energy and perhaps extend our lives.
In addition to a health and nutrition blog and easy-to-make smoothie recipes, the company’s web site also offers a range of products like its signature chocolate flavored Plant Based Protein Blend, Organic Ecuador Cacao and Organic Hemp Powder that make it easier for people to get nutrient dense foods into their bodies without having to rely on synthetic or animal-based products.
