Fortunately for me, Mother's Market is walking distance from my home (not that I have ever walked there or anything). So one day, while on break, I DROVE to this market and spoke to the person who managed the vitamin department. What I learned is that whey protein is a bit more difficult for women to absorb. I don't know how to prove this statement, but it sounded believable and so I went with what she recommended. It was cheaper, plant based, and super high in all the vitamins and nutrients that I cared about.
I went this:
The taste is fairly decent, it has that normal powdery vitamin stench, but I add a banana and a spoonful of almond butter and about 10oz of water. I let the Vitamix go into crazy fast mode on it, because it adds some froth and thickens it up a bit.
My only problem right now is that I have developed some super painful gas. I know, too much information, but its true. I am not sure if its from this or maybe my body is adjusting. I wasn't like this the first couple of days. I am taking gas-x and its helping, but if this doesn't stop, I may need to venture into another brand. What do you drink?
