Anyone who follows my instagram will know that I’ve made a few trips to Protein Haus now and I thought I would let you know what all the fuss is about!
Protein Haus is what is says on the tin! A fitness food hub in Canary Wharf. There is a really cool pop up just outside Canary Wharf tube station and then a newer site/cafe inside the shopping centre. ‘[…] the Protein Haus brand encompasses everything from a grab and go green shake to individually tailored fitness plans’ (Carli Wheatly, Founder of Protein Haus). Both sites offer an array of fitness meals to accommodate your goals, with the macros worked out for you and labelled. This is one of the brilliances of Protein Haus, I can enter my meal straight into My Fitness Pal and it’s all accurately included in my macros- Wonderful!
Now, a lot of people will now probably be questioning the fact that I am vegan. This is why I absolutely LOVE Protein Haus, they are VERY vegan friendly. They have numerous vegan snacks, a couple of vegan meals and strictly vegan shakes, or you can ask for one of their other shakes just with a vegan protein instead of whey. How great is that?!
On my first trip, they only had the pop store at the station but I was still like a child in a candy store. I stood at the counter for ages unable to choose what I wanted because I just wanted everything! In the end I went for:
M8- Vegan Muscle: Tofu, Brown Rice and Greens. £4.50
Benefits: Vegan, Protein, Good carbs, Good greens, Energy meal, High Fibre, Weightloss
P:10.3g C:47.2g F:3.9g kcal: 265
PH-9 #NaturallyStephanie Vegan Shake £4.50
Bananas, Spinach, Almond Milk, Vanilla Vegan Protein, Chia Seeds
P:13.6g C:36g F:3g kcal: 233
I also picked up a Pumpkin Spice Lenny and Larry’s Complete Cookie and some Savoury Protein Pancakes too. TO DIE FOR!
I found it so difficult to choose what I wanted but I was very happy with my selections. I have since been back to visit their new store in the shopping centre twice. One of these occasions, I was on a Fitness shoot and dragged the photographer and assistant there because I just couldn’t waste the opportunity since we were shooting in Canary Wharf! They loved it too! This time around I had the second vegan meal option called M11- Tofu Gym Bunny: Tofu Sweet Potato and Green Beans. Gorgeous and just what I needed mid-shoot! I also stocked up on more Lenny and Larry’s Complete Cookies in three flavours- Double Chocolate, Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle.
In some respects it is very fortunate that I live very North London and work in the West End and rarely near Canary Wharf, so my bank account is safe for now… It does mean that going there though is a treat- quite exciting when going out for fitness food and protein shakes is a treat!
I urge anyone with any interest in fitness food, fitness as a whole or looking for a very nutritious meal/snack/shake/juice to head to Protein Haus in Canary Wharf.
Take a look at their website here. They also offer fitness bootcamps, meal plans, juice detoxes, PT services and much more!
So, Protein Haus I love you and you’ll be seeing me back very soon!
