Protein Powder recs?

Do you use a protein powder in shakes, smoothies, homemade bars, etc?  If so, I am interested in what you use and why?  I currently only have Designer Whey Chocolate Protein Powder in the house for Adam (which I think is vegetarian (obviously not vegan) according to at least one website).  I am looking for one that is vegan (I am not planning on switching to veganism right now, but this seems like something that I could switch to and not make any difference in my day), gluten free would be nice, one that is high in protein and relatively low in carbs, organic would be nice too, but also one that you like, i.e. tastes good.  I have tried soy protein powder, and it's ok, but I wonder if there are other kinds (or a soy protein powder that tastes really good).

Please post a comment on which one you like and why or send me a link.

  1. I haven't tried them because they are kind of expensive and more difficult to find (I think you usually have to order them online), but many healthy living bloggers LOVE Sun Warrior (Vegan) and Jay Robb Brown Rice Protein powder. I usually use Whey because it's pretty cheap, easy to find, tastes good, and I'm not vegan/vegetarian. I've tried Amazing Grass and Vega and found it to be kind of chalky. A lot of people love those too though, and I think I really only tried chocolate (I tried a tropical flavor in Vega), so maybe another flavor would be ok/less chalky. Good luck and keep us posted! I might try something new if you find something good!
