Protein Drink

Recommended Posts

Just found out my protein drink contains a small amount of wheat - lean body for her. Does anyone take a good protein drink after working out that isn't filled with a bunch of other junk that is good? Thanks!

I love Jay Robb's. It's a bit pricy. But it tastes fantastic and it's gluten-free. Also, it's a better processed protien, cleaner without all that "junk" that others have.

Another option is www.mercola.com, he has a awesome whey powder as well. It's high on the whey chart for me. I can use Jay Robb's whey powder mix, but if you have issues with milk products, lactose or casien mercola's seems to give me a bit of tummy trouble from the whey. :)

I love all the vanilla powders by Biochem. I get them really cheap from vitacost.com.

They have a vegan one now that I use :)

I am a huge proponent of ALL NATURAL protein powders and have tried several dozen at the food trade shows that I attend each year. I've literally tried 40-50 different varieties.

And the winnah' is..... Nutrabio.com

Why?

# No additives, fillers, or artificial ingredients.

# Triple cold filtration process including micro and ultra filtration.

# Mixes easily with a spoon - no gritty taste, clumping or residue.

# Less then 2 grams of carbs and fat per scoop.

# 100% Denatured Whey protein concentrate

# Manufactured in the USA in a USDA licensed dairy plant.

# Mixes with water, juice, milk and is great for cooking pancakes, oatmeal, muffins etc.

# New and Improved- Now mixes better than ever.

# Lab tested for purity.

Do yourself a favor and buy a box of Zip-Lock baggies. Have a baggie at work, in your gym bag, and even in your suitcase when traveling.

A protein shake is essential in building muscle and is a much better "pick me up" than a cup of coffee or a candy bar.

Thanks for the suggestion. I quite possibly may have found a new protein source. And, I'm a magnet to anything organic.

A good lot of Celiac folks are also allergic, or at least intolerant to, Dairy and/or Lactose - This describes me. I have a slew of other food allergies/intolerances, some being rice and soy, so using the usual alternative choices are not an option for me.

I finally found a protein powder that is safe for me to use, so I'd like to share :)

It is Olympian Labs "Pea Protein". It is part of their Naturopathic Division. The flavor to some might not be what they are use to, but I quickly got use to it without a problem. Here are all of the ingredients:

I have started using this one as well, as I recently discovered a allergy to soy. It's a good protien, it doesn't upset my stomach or taste like Peas..for those of you wondering. It mixes well with other additions and takes on the flavor (PB, fruit, etc). It's a good choice for us troubled tummy people. B)

tested for Parkinson's 1998 (at 19 yrs old)

dx benign familial tremor disorder 1998 - went caffeine-free

dx soy allergy 1999 - went soy-free

miscarriages in 2009 and 2010

fibroids found 2010 (dr advised a hysterectomy)

neurological symptoms increased, bloating and other digestive issues, memory loss, and energy loss since 2009.

Found info on celiac Dec 27, 2010 and went gluten free Jan 4, 2010.....and I already see a massive difference! Kitchen cleaned out completely on January 11, 2011.

Spending a small fortune on groceries, but I hope to be a HEALTHY, gluten-free, soy-free, caffeine-free bride later this year!

I drink the isopure shakes, get the liquid kind not the powdered and I recommend going with either alpine punch (tastes like fruit punch) or apple melon. One bottle has anywhere from 200-260 calories and 40 grams of whey protein. It is gluten-free and smooth and tastes pretty good. Also (unless you have an allergy) try soy protein shakes they tend to pack the most protein per drop. Isopure is great, filling and since 2 out of my 3 meals consist of protein shakes I really recommend it. Its even kept me from passing out.
