Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Protein Supplement?
0

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone have suggestions for a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free protein supplement? I would prefer a powder to add to smoothies (unflavored).

I've tried Jarrow rice and Plant fusion, but the former gets gooey and the latter has too much sugar/sugar replacement.

I've tried some small packets of the RAW protein powders, but a lot of them have wheat and barley grass in them, and they also have more sugars and sugar replacements than I'd like.

So... any suggestions?

Also, did anyone have a hard time with recovery at first? I used to do crazy interval training (a la Insanity) and might be sore the next day, but I could survive. Now if I do a short interval session it takes me days to recover. I'm about four months into gluten-free after a Celiac diagnosis. I was too tired before my diagnosis to work out much, so I know that's part of it.

I'm about 6 weeks in, and have no energy for even a walk in the evenings - I used to be hardcore into bootcamp and working out everyday...now I can hardly get my laundry done. Granted, I've been this way for longer than the 6 weeks since cutting out gluten - it's been this way all year. I completely feel your pain, so does my body! I wish I knew where all my energy and metabolism went.

Hope you find a good supplement, I have yet to find one either.

Trader Joe's makes an Organic Hemp Protein Powder - Ingredients: Organic Hemp Protein Powder, Organic Palm Sugar, Organic Vanilla Flavor. I have used it for a couple of years - high in fiber and Omega 3's. :)

Oh, that's really good to know. We're supposed to get a Trader Joe's soon! The hemp protein powder that one of our local health food stores has has something in it I don't want - I don't remember what, though.

I'm excited about TJ's, but I hope they don't take too much business away from our local ones. I've read varying reviews about how gluten-free friendly they are.

I do feel a little better now than I did several months ago, but I still pretty much just want to sleep. I need to cut back on the caffeine, I think (most days I just have a strong cup of black British tea first thing), and just let myself sleep a little later. I'm probably only getting an average of 7 hours a night, so I definitely need to work on that.

I'll try mushroom's suggestion of the Trader Joe's hemp protein once our store opens. In the meantime, I went back to Plant Fusion. It has some extra good things in it, like digestive enzymes, but it also has fructose and stevia (in the unflavored one!), neither of which I need in a smoothie. There are some raw ones that I'm tempted to try, but a lot of them have things like barley grass juice in them. I know the debate about whether things like that and wheat grass are safe is a pretty big one - and, as I understand it, the issue is whether the grass may contain seeds (the grass itself, I think, should be ok) that would allow gluten to get through the juicing process. What's frustrating is that they're labelled wheat and gluten free, so only careful reading of that complicated ingredient list identified that (I spend a lot of time in the supplements aisle when I shop!).

I've been able to get some short runs in on the weekends, and I'm going to start trying to do yoga most days, even if just for 15 minutes. I know it helps me mentally, and physically I do feel better even if I just do a little bit. Of course, I really want to be at the climbing gym and doing Insanity again, but just thinking about that makes me want to take a nap!!!

Look at the Vega brand. They are all dairy, gulten, and soy free. Most are no added sugar.

thanks, user853 - i tried some of their small packets, but unfortunately maybe some of the flavors i picked were bad, but the sweetness was overwhelming. maybe if i didn't mix them with fruit, but they must have an awful lot of stevia! one drink i couldn't even drink it was so sweet - i tried to freeze it, and eat like a frozen treat, but still too sweet. i'll look for some unflavored versions, maybe online (none available locally)!

I've used plain rice protein powder, hemp protein, pumpkin seed protein (my favorite), and veggie blend, and pea protein. They've all been fine in smoothies.

    • So here's my adderall report.... I take it in the am, after my other melds and coffee. It's the XR version so it lasts all day for me, but the most helpful part is the first 4 hours. It takes a little while to kick in, and then I notice a calming effect. I'm usually very anxious so this is nice. I notice I'm more positive, and feel actually pretty happy, although I've got some major things pressing down on me I feel like I can think about them straight and get them taken care of, instead of panicking. I'm not starving all the time like I usually am. I felt hungry since I started taking my thyroid med and am worried I started gaining a bit of weight due to eating more. Now I don't feel like I need to eat between meals. I'm back to making every bite count towards nutrition. I've been better at taking care of more adult type duties. I'm happy to say that it's been a very good experience so far and I don't feel like I'm taking so much that I get a high from it. A decade or more ago I took double the dose I'm at now and I can tell you I was feeling that super happy high when it first kicked in, and although it felt great, it scared me as that is so on the path to some major addiction issues, you know? I can tell you that the current dose makes me feel like I did in my 20's, and I was pretty kick a$$ then, lol!
    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
