When I can't seem to get my protein high enough in a day (veggie lover problems!), I rely on protein powders to get that little extra protein in.

I have used it "raw", blended, and baked. I have even froze it in an ice cream! Protein powder can be so versatile.

There are so many brands out there, and it all comes down to which ingredients you are willing to accept, and your taste and texture preference.
Right now, I am using Allmax protein powder.
