Thanks I will be interested in hearing how your trials with the non dairy/non soy powders go, I just bought Raw for Life and it doesn't taste all that great, it is chalky. I already add spirulina to my smoothies and never thought that about the protein in it. I have tried one (forget the name) but it was over 40 dollars a carton a bit much. Thanks so much.....wonder if there are any others out there with suggestions.

I had been using a whey-based protein powder. 1 serving was 120 calories and 30g protein. With new dietary restrictions I've been given, I looked for non-dairy and non-soy based protein powders last time I was at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

I bought a sampling of rice and veggie based protein powders that I am trying now. I will be having jaw surgery in June, so I definitely need something that can be used as a replacement, not just a supplement!

R2C2NU, by the calorie/protein ratio, sounds like the spirulina is pretty close to many of the protein powders I've seen. 100cal would be 20g. I've been meaning to try it, as I've read a lot about the benefits.

I've been using Spirulina, now in powder form, for years considering it a protein supplement.. Actually in isn't very high in protein, only about 2 g. per teaspoon serving, but it has a lot of nutrients packed in that 10 calorie serving.

Hi all,
I like to add protein powder to my green smoothies as I find otherwise too much of a spike in blood sugar it seems sometimes. So many of the protein powders seem to have a lot of calories, I'm looking for any recommendations you might have
