Since starting this new diet, I’ve been on a great hunt for a the best plant-based protein powder.
It’s been pretty hard with limited resources and knowledge on the subject. I can only use what I can find and order online. And I don’t really know anybody personally that has had any experience with this stuff to ask.
I looked to Google. And YouTube.
I found a bunch of information on various types of powders, including comparisons.
Now, you should know, that like most protein powders, these guys are expensive! And some of them more so than others because they are organic.
With that said, I obviously couldn’t try them all… you know- budget restrictions and all. So I ordered what I found to be pretty popular and reputable to start sampling what my options were.
I’m only 4 protein powders in, but I think I have a little bit of a clue to give you some suggestions if you’re at all curious. Eventually I am going to order up some Sunwarrior Sunflower Protein Powder and see how that is.
As you can see from the photo, Vega offers a TON of nutritional benefits. And guess what? It tastes delicious! The texture is very smooth and I actually really enjoyed the flavor. I would always drink one scoop mixed with 1 cup of water directly after my work outs. It would keep me going for a long while until I got the chance to sit down and actually eat something. I have tried the vanilla and the chocolate flavors. Vanilla didn’t really taste like vanilla… but the taste it did have was really yummy, so I wasn’t about to complain. Plus! All that nutrition for just 135 calories a glass??? I will take it!
Oh, but the ingredients are not certified organic : ( Oh, and this is VERY expensive. You get 22 servings for about $55 a canister. Ouch. [click to continue…]
