Vega Protein Powder.
I am "sensitive" to most ingredients in protein powder. Soy - no thanks. Whey? Nope. Dairy? Pass. My last remaining option was to go vegan. Normally, this would be horrible, except that this wound up being phenomenal. Christine sent me to Whole Foods with the task of finding a few powders and giving them a shot. I tried Vega and since it didn't taste awful (in fact, it's quite good), it won. Here is the ingredient list:
I don't know much about any of that, but when I sent the link to Christine she said "that's about as good as it's going to get." Cool, my health counselor is happy, and it tastes good, and I won't throw it up. Winner.
It's great with coconut milk (see also: lactose intolerance) and even better in a shake with frozen fruit and coconut milk.
- It kinda turns green in a shake - at least, the vanilla does. It is made from pea protein, afterall. Just close your eyes.
- It doesn't blend very well outside of a blender. I tried to just shake it into coconut milk and still wound up with a bunch of clumps of powder. Definitely use the blender or be prepared to invest the time to smush out all the clumps. Or, drink clumpy powder shake.
- None of the stuff makes me sick
- No artificial sweeteners or additives (stevia is the sweetening ingredient)
