One of my biggest struggles has always been to get enough protein in my diet. Before I was full on vegetarian (sorta pescatarian but my husband doesn't eat fish so really only if we go out to eat and it looks good) I didn't eat meat anyway, I just don't like the texture of it.
I can't drink protein shakes. Whey protein powder makes me gag. I wish there was a different way to describe it but there isn't. I can't even smell the stuff without getting queasy.
I searched vegan protein bars and powders online, since obviously something vegan won't have the whey in it. I found a couple of options but nothing carried in my local stores.
I found this at Trader Joe's yesterday.
I went chocolate because vanilla flavored things usually make me gag. I know, I'm weird. I didn't have anything to make up a shake so I ended up adding it to my oatmeal. It's not bad. There is an aftertaste, for sure, and I can feel the powder on my tongue a little, but that might go away in a shake. I only added one tablespoon, serving size is four. So far my stomach seems ok and I can smell it without needing to chuck, wins all around!
I think I might pick up some chocolate milk, try mixing it with that and see how that goes. Wish me luck!
