Protein Powder Recommendations

Over the last few months I have gotten a lot of inquiries about Protein Powders.
Depending upon what your goals are my recommendations to you would differ.
If your goal is weight loss, substituting a protein shake or any other "liquid meal replacement" is not in your best interest. Eating REAL FOOD satisfies you and the thermogenic effect of food (chewing and digestion) will help you as well :)
If you are looking to put on mass, the same too applies EAT MORE FOOD.  FOOD IS GOOD :)
When I do supplement my nutrition with protein powders I like to cycle them, the following are a few of my favorites.  
These are all dairy and wheat free.

If you don't mind a little chalkiness SUN WARRIOR Vanilla is your GO TO!
Berry Flavored Vega is great if you are into a fruity green shake, it is on the expensive side however.
When you are traveling or in a pinch, you can find the Chocolate Vega shake and go at all Wholefoods locations :)
Lifetime Basics Plant Protein Unsweetened variety is my go to when I am hardcore dieting.  This can be mixed with liquid to make THICK PUDDING- LIKE TREATS!!!!

Life is yours

Don’t wait for someday. This is the day, this is the moment, this is your opportunity to live.

Let go of any thoughts of unworthiness or limitation. You absolutely deserve every joy you can imagine and you’re fully capable of creating them all.
Stop settling for what’s merely easy or comfortable or convenient. Give yourself the respect you deserve and take on the difficult challenges that bring real fulfillment.
Give your life some beautiful, meaningful substance today. Remind yourself of how fortunate you are to have each moment, and sincerely, authentically fill those moments with richness.
Acknowledge and be thankful for what you desire to experience, to express, to give and to live. Then, fully engage the power of your purpose and make it happen.
The best of life is never out of reach. It is yours to fulfill, with richness and substance, right now.
