Good Protein Powder?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I'm currently having a lot of difficulty getting in enough calories in the day. I am thinking that adding in a high protein shake for breakfast or even for 'snacks' would be a good idea.

What good protein powder shakes are there?

Caveats: I'm allergic to dairy. I *think* I can do whey, but anything with milk protein isolate, etc is a no go.

Any good tasting shakes?

I'm looking for really high protein too. I find it really hard to cook with a 6 week old, so lots of times, all I get are carbs like fruit, bread, etc.

Thanks!

Goatein? Or there are a bunch made with pea protein. We tried Garden of Life but it tasted like vomit. Too bad, because the qulaity of ingredients are excellent.

I've heard great things about Sun Warrior brand. It's vegan.
There is also vega and amazing grass which are also vegan.
All are expensive but they do go on sale, and you can find coupons online.

I hate stevia so Sun Warrior and Vega are out for me. I drink Nutribiotic organic rice protein powder which you can find at iherb and Nutivia organic hemp protein powder which I buy in 3lb. bags from vitacost. Out of the two the rice protein has a more mild flavor but hemp has more nutrients such as fiber and omegas. Gram for gram though rice protein powder has more protein.
