When it comes to protein powder, I’ve been using a brand called designer whey for about a year now….it’s certainly tasty. But recently, after becoming more vigilant about what I put in my body, I decided it wasn’t the best.
I’ve been trying to avoid dairy because of it’s potential hormone disrupting qualities, and designer whey also has sugar and some other sketchy type ingredients in it.
That’s when I got the bright idea to get hemp protein powder. I thought- this is good for me. Omega 3’s, no sugar, just hemp seeds.
Buuuut it is DISGUSTING. I mean really nasty. I have to doctor it up with large amounts of cacao powder and peanut butter to make it tolerable.
I’ve just about decided to retire drinking protein shakes due to these unfortunate circumstances. They aren’t an example of real food.
I’ve toyed around with getting organic, grass fed whey but then I saw the price….
I know I should just give up protein shakes all together but they are so delicious!!!
Does anyone have any suggestions for a natural, organic dairy OR non-dairy, non-barf tasting protein powder you use (that won’t cost a fortune)?
