Do you use protein powder?
Do you not like the idea of using protein powder?
Do you think protein powder tastes like chalk? (just wondering- I've heard it been said before)
If you read my blog, you know I use protein powder. Vegan protein powder. This one to be exact:
I believe it is possible to get enough protein from natural everyday foods whether you are a body builder, vegan, vegetarian and so on.
I believe protein powder is a handy tool for those who may need extra protein but are short on time/ energy.
I believe there are good and bad types of protein powder (more heavily processed and full of sugar vs organic + more natural types)
I believe the inclusion of protein powder in the diet can be very helpful.
I believe protein powder should not be the only source of protein in your diet. It should not supplement meals etc.
I do not believe protein powder is a food group and if it is used as one, I can't see the benefits.
To sum it up, I don't see protein powder as either a bad guy or a good guy, I just see him as a guy who can help a brother out when needed.
I would say I have protein powder about 2-3 times a week. Not every day, just on days when I feel like I need a little extra protein boost, because I'm constantly on the run/ don't have much time to plan my meals and so they may be lacking in the protein department- never usually the veggie department though ;)

I don't just shake it up with some water though... I make the most of the yummy flavour it provides.
