I use a non dairy protein powder from my Chiro! I love the stuff and use it in smoothies all the time!

My personal preference is a brown rice and pea protein powder and I like Garden of Life's Raw organic protein powder because it is an excellent source of protein from raw organic sprouts and sprouted brown rice protein; it contains live probiotics and enzymes. It is suitable for vegan diets and is gluten and dairy free. I buy the vanilla and mix it in my Vitamix blender with almond or coconut milk, frozen berries, hemp seed, chia seed, and spinach for my breakfast several times a week.

Not all protein powders are the same. I would give preference to Milk Protein Isolate as it mainly consists of slow-digesting micellar casein, whereas Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) is fast-digesting and it is primarily designed for people who are lactose intolerant, not to mention the increased cost. Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) is also quite good but it too digests quickly. Look for proteins that cold microfiltrated.

So, I've done fairly well using Spark's tools. One of the things I've noticed is that I tend to be low and sometimes under the "goal" Spark set for me for my protein intake. I've read all the articles about foods high in protein or whatever. I have all that information. Specifically what I want to know about now is protein powder. Any information on the positives and negatives is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
