Lets be realistic... Living paleo in 2013 is a challenge. Even spending a large amount of time planning and cooking your own food still leaves gaps where a quick protein shake can help. I personally go for the New Zealand stuff because it seems to be the cleanest protein I've found and they have very strict restrictions there which don't allow any antibiotics or hormones to be given/fed to the cattle. Ergogenics is my brand of choice... it tastes less fake than some of the other options I've found. Just do what works for you The biggest challenge I've found with my Paleo journey has been the judgement you can receive from coworkers, friends, and even family. My outlook has always been, I'm not judging YOU, all I ask is that you don't judge ME either
My functional doctor suggested Paleo Meal. If you want something you can put in heated foods (like to bake with) he suggested another one and I can't find where I put it at for the name of it. I also like Shakeology. In the end do what is best for you and your body. I haven't tried the 2 my doctor suggested but I hope to soon:) Casey

I sometimes use whey protein to make some home made bars for when I'm travelling or n the run. I get Kaizen naturals. No artificial stuff. Just protein. Not really paleo though... If you can get protein through whole foods you really are better off. But when I travel, and keeping foods cold for several days can be a problem I just do what I can.
Basically, eat real food instead :) Grab a couple pieces of bacon or a hard boiled egg :) I'm sure there's a place and time for powders, but in general they are very expensive for not a lot of goodness. At least that's my take :)
