Vegan protein supplements are becoming more popular as people are trying to find healthier behaviors. Becoming Vegan is now a normal thing in our society. The stigma of eating only vegetable based foods and being small and puny are over. Vegan Bodybuilders are alive and well. They are winning competitions and are doing it in a more health conscious way. I need to note that I am not a vegan, not even close. I do respect vegans though, its a tough choice they made but very well rewarding. Although I am not vegan, I do use a vegan protein powder and eat more plant based, non-processed foods. I feel better when I am able to stay consistent on eating “clean”.
Now lets bust some myths. Vegan Protein’s do not taste like you’re eating a branch. There are very good tasting vegan proteins. Here is a couple of our favorites;
Vega Protein is one of our favorites. Flavor is really good for a plant based protein. With 30 grams of Protein per serving Vega is one of the higher protein powders. Vega is loaded with 6g of BCAA’s and Probiotics for Gut Health. Vega is certified for collegiate sport by the informed choice. Gluten Free, Non-Gmo verified and Vegan certified means that Vega Sport is a clean choice for athletes and non-athletes.
Sun Warrior Warrior Blend is another great tasting protein powder. Warrior Blend is an easily digestible, nutrient filled superfood perfect for anyone who wants to amplify their health and fitness. Sun warrior is made from multiple sources of protein. They refine it a fine powder making it more soluble and digestible.
Unlike Plant Based Proteins Sun Warrior uses Medium chain triglycerides from coconut then join this dynamic fusion to create a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile exceptionally rich in Arginine, Lysine, Leucine, and branched chain amino acids.
Orgain Organic Protein is a very popular powder. It is less expensive then the Vega and Sun Warrior but doesn’t lack in quality. Orgain is 21 grams of protein which is less than Vega. Orgain is certified non-gmo, gluten free, vegan, and Kosher. Orgain is an everyday protein choice for younger athletes and adults.
Vegan Proteins are not new, but because of the gained popularity there has been great strides on improving the quality of these protein powders. There are 100’s to choose from, these happen to be the most popular to us. We have supplied you with links to Amazon if you would like to read more and purchase these proteins. No matter the source you choose, if you switch to vegan protein powder you will be doing your body a favor and it will thank you by having more energy and strength. One great side effect of Vegan proteins is that they help you reach your daily intake of fruits and veggies. I know its a horrible side effect, but one I am sure you will live with.
