I like whey protein, too. I use a brand called "Designer Whey" that's very tasty. I've started just buying the plain or vanilla and using DaVinci flavorings to make it different every day. Their sugar-free is made with sucralose (Splenda™). Atkins shakes are also whey protein, and I use them for breakfasts sometimes.
I stay as far from anything soy as I can. I will use a little bit of *fermented* soy (only) as a condiment (soy sauce, etc). But otherwise, no.
I'm a real peanut butter junkie, too... and I'd love to find a suitable substitute... but I'm not convinced the processing of things like "PB2™" and the like makes it any better. I use a lot of other nut butters, and they're good and I like them. But sometimes I just want peanut butter! Of course, I'm avoiding it on the basis of the antinutrients in it (same reason as the soy), and other nut butters have similar negatives. Perhaps not as much.
I wonder, longingly, about the PB2™ though.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
