The marketing and research on protein powders have confused us all really. Whey protein is apparently best for muscle rebuilding after intense exercise. But then it contains toxic by-products and is constipating. Egg White protein is superior to whey. But then we hear of egg white allergies. I will let you in on a little secret here, something you definitely didn’t know. When our ancestors’ bodies were evolving into what they are today, they didn’t have protein powder, or blenders, or cow dairy, or egg separators, Mind-blowing, isn’t it? I jest, but it is true that unless we are work-out machines, we can get much better nutrition and protein from pure, whole foods. Whatever you see on TV or in a magazine, whenever in time you exist, first ask yourself “Is this food in its whole form, or has it been processed?” If the answer is “No,” then move on. That is the best way to find whether something is healthful for you or not.
If you are adamant about having your protein powder, or actually are lifting weights in your sleep and in traffic on the way to work, then here are a few protein powders that are not made with toxic products, are raw, organic and bioavailable to the body. All of the following contain all essential amino acids, are raw, vegan and non-GMO. As always, I would like to state that I am not affiliated in any sense with any of the following brands or their products.
