Naturade VeganSmart All-in-One Nutritional Shake, Vanilla (54.7 oz.) at Sams Club
or smaller 22.8 oz at Amazon read review "the health shake experiment" did all the research in four years & gave a recipe for shake: almond milk, banana, peanut butter-PB. & ice

It has essential fatty acids but I grind flax seed and I may try the PB.
I want the powder to last a long time so I only use one scoop. Then add prtein anf fiber with one scoop of Hemp powder

Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Hi Fiber, 3 Pound Bag--Amazon
Fiber works great--easily digestible only need one tablespoon

Does anyone supplement their diet with protein powders or shakes?
If so what do you recommend?
Cheers

Beans are very beneficial for gut bacteria, doesnt matter if they are canned or not.
Some canned beans may have higher levels of salt.

Try Adding some super grains to your diet. Quinoa, Amaranth, Teff, & Millet are a few I can think of right off the bat. They also have lots of other good things in them too besides protein.
Sorry I have to have milk products. Cheese is it's on food group at my house.
For better nutrition I still follow the ideal of having a bean with a grain. Supposedly helps with getting the best of both protein worlds when you combine the two., Don't know what current research says about it but,,,

Every day is a GIFT!

Eggs (mostly whites or substitute--bad cholesterol goes up when I eat very many yolks), yogurt, various baked fish, and shrimp for a splurge. Also eat a fair amount of beans and lentils.

Peace out,

My great weaknesses are Nutella and crunchy peanut butter so sadly I cant keep either at home in the meantime.

In our household we fairly often have fish, if it is not being eaten at a major meal we quite often have things like tuna, sardines and egg in sanwiches or wraps.
We also drink Kefir everyday and have yoghurt with fruit salad. Sometimes we might have a plateful of crackers with cheese. We rarely buy sandwich meat and maybe only have red meat once or twice a week. Sometimes we put out bowls of nuts to snack on.
I sometimes like having a can of baked beans and we usually have a big tub of Hummus in the Fridge which can wind up in wraps and on crackers.
Most items mentioned above contain protein, so we never find ourselves deprived of this nutrient.

Hi, I'm new around here and am happy to be sparking with all of you.
This plan seems to fit the best with what I want as far as the content of my diet. I want to eat mostly whole foods vegan (high fiber, low fat), but add fish occasionally and meat rarely. This plan is supposed to include at least 60g protein every day, I see.
I would love to hear what all of you do to keep your protein up if you are eating few animal products. Do you eat a lot of beans? Or nuts and seeds? (If so, does it seem like a high fat content?) How often do you eat fish and seafood? Red meat?
Thanks for sharing your habits and insights!
