Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on my last post, how thoughtful 🙂
I’m feeling a lot better. I’m just going to work as hard as I can for now and see what happens. I have been studying a biology book and I plan to continue my quest for bio knowledge until next semester!
As I’ve mentioned before I have been doing a lot more strength training lately and because of that I have upped my protein intake. Not because I was not getting enough protein before, but simply because I want to understand how I would feel if I did consume more protein.
I know all of us vegetarians hate that question: where do you get your protein? Because we have educated ourselves we now know that protein is everywhere! But lets save that post fo a different day, shall we?
As most vegans, I get most of my protein from foods like beans, lentils, nuts, unprocessed soy, and the occasional protein powder.
Protein does not have to come from animals!
Since I have been trying to build more muscle I have been increasing my intake on protein powder just to be safe. But what kind should I use? Soy? Hemp? Rice? There are so many different types of protein powder out there it can get a little overwhelming.
What I use the most right now:
What I like- This stuff has a ton of added vitamins plus 25 grams of soy protein. For the most part the ingredients seem natural and not processed. On sale for $9.99 is a win. Blends really well in smoothies for a great post-workout snack. I like that the powder is white so the smoothies still look as great as they taste unlike hemp protein.
SIAB are great post-workout snacks
What I don’t like- Some-what of a chalky flavor. To get the 25 grams of protein you must use 3 TBSPs which to me is a little over whelming on the flavor.
What I want in a protein powder- Something with no color, a great price, a good taste, and not processed.
If you use protein powder what do you look for? Any favorite kinds?
By the way readers, this is my 88th post and I’ll have something very special planned for my 100 post! Can’t wait!
