I order my rice and pea protein powders from Swanson... Their prices are reasonable and the flavors and textures are the best I've found... I use the Now Sports, Pea Protein Powder and Growing Naturals Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder, in the vanilla and chocolate flavors. Hope this helps.

I and am currently looking for the most economical, healthy form of protein powder, I just grabbed a bag of whatever walmart had just to get started. but i don't care for the flavor.
I am looking at Raw Fit on amazon, it about 2.55 a shake but it seems more comprehensive then JJ's thorne research powder. I cant seem to find servings per container on that one. Any suggestions, It doesn't need to be overly sweet. I tried the veggi one it ...left me hungry. I also tried a sample pack of the RAW brand but it was a different product it had a very silty mouthfeel. emoticon

Hi MOMOU18, sorry I am just getting to your question. It is usually $59 for the large container which is around 21 servings ($2.80 per serving plus tax). They have vanilla, vanilla chai, and mixed berry as well but I'm a creature of habit, plus I don't care for vanilla, so I stick with the chocolate. I tried their Vega Sport version but didn't care for it at all. I can sometimes get it on sale and save 5-10 dollars. If Sprouts (what a cute name!) has a shopper program, you may be able to save that way too. They also have protein bars in a few flavor varieties. i've only had the chocolate coconut and it was okay when I was traveling.

Is Vega One Cheaper than her shakes? Thanks for the info? I have seen it at Sprouts. I think they have a few other flavors.

Thanks for the share... I'll have to check into it... I've been using Now Sports, Pea Protein Powder and Growing Naturals Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder, in the vanilla and chocolate flavors, that I order through Swanson... But it's always nice to have options.

I found a meal replacement shake that meets all of JJ's requirements and in fact has less sugar (important since I'm diabetic) and contains healthy proteins, digestive enzymes, and probiotics than the JJ Virgin Shake. Vega One. I bought the Chocolate. It is Dutch cocoa so it is a bit of a different taste but for those of us who hate shakes to begin with, this one is tolerable.
