One of the most frequent questions I continue to get from people when I let them know that I do no longer eat meat is, "How Do You Get Your Protein?" I am always happy to let people know that plant-based proteins are a great option. I love supplementing my meals with a protein shake either before, during, or after a hard workout.
However, I do not want to sacrifice that hard workout with a protein shake that has harmful ingredients like artificial colors, pesticides, or genetically modified products. Here are a few of my favorite healthier plant-based protein powders that I would recommend you try to supplement your protein needs.
Garden of Life Organic Plant Based Protein
Nutiva Hemp Protein
Nutiva Organic Plant Protein
Tera’s Organic Whey
Vega One Nutritional Shake
Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate or Vanilla Protein Powders
You can find most of these plant-based protein powders at Wholefoods, Roots, MOM's, the online grocery store Thrive Market, and at some Target and Costco stores.
