I'm a vegetarian so quite often I'm struggling to eat enough protein. Do you eat egg whites? Not a supplement but nonetheless, a great protein source. I blend 3 egg whites, 1 serving oats, a banana and some PB and cinnamon in a blender and use that as pancake batter. The entire batch is roughly 25g protein depending on how much PB I use. I also love Clif Builders as a snack (although they're $1.50 per bar so I don't buy them too often) and I also eat Zone bars, which are less expensive. I've never tried protein powders; I'm kind of hesitant to. I'm really not much help. Have you tried asking in the Diet and Nutrition forum of the message boards?

I'm hoping that there are at least a few people who, like me, are interested in not just cardio or weight loss, but strength training as well. A big part of strength training is eating the right amount of carbohydrates and protein. The carbs are easy enough to come by, especially since I enjoy pasta foods. The protein, however is something most people lack; a lot of our food doesn't contain enough protein. So especially since I focus on muscle build and strength along with my other goals, I've turned to protein supplements (specifically powders). I've been doing some research, but non-biased statements about products is extremely hard to come by. I was wondering if anyone out there has found a good protein supplement that you know works or that you're happy with. Taste is not something extremely important, I'm more interested in results.
