I don't need protein powder, I get enough protein in my diet. Honestly, the only time I can see protein powders being a necessary dietary supplement is for vegans/vegetarians. Otherwise if you're not getting enough protein in your diet, I would reassess that particular diet and balance it out better. If your protein is indeed low, it's likely you are too high in another macronutrient.
I powerlift and do general strength training and don't require anymore than 75g-117g which isn't hard to get unless you don't eat meat and/or dairy.
If I am low on protein, which is rare. As MichelleXXXX suggested, an egg white omelette with veg adds lots of protein for few calories and loads cheaper. :)

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
