A roundup of my favorite protein powders that I use as supplements, snacks, and baking ingredients! Find your new favorite with this helpful list.
Protein powder. I’ve been obsessed lately.
I blame this partly on Julianna for introducing me to Slap while I was in LA and partly on the Bob’s Red Mill post I did a few week’s back featuring their new protein powders. I’ve really broadened my protein powder horizons over the last few months.
I used to ONLY use unflavored varieties of whey and sometimes vegan kinds, but little did I know I was missing out on the world of flavored protein powders.
Granted, I still am not a fan of the ones that are overly sweet or that use artificial sweeteners/sucralose, but the stevia sweetened ones? I am all about those! It’s amazing what allowing myself to eat stevia has done for me in terms of opening up food options! That’s why I always say, no food is BAD food. There’s room for real stuff and ‘fun’ stuff alike.
But back to the protein powders. Since I’ve become quite a connoisseur and my stash has grown enormously, I thought it was time I finally rounded up my all time favorites as well as what I use them for.
Maybe you’ll discover a new kind to try or a new use for one of YOUR favorites. Without further ado (and in now specific order), here’s my top 5!
