As a vegetarian, it is sometimes difficult to find protein rich foods. Especially when you live a life on the road. I wanted to supplement my nutritional requirements with a product that is not filled with additional unnecessary ingredients. For years I have tried many supplements to find out that their ingredients make me ill. Others were very hard on the palate. I came across pea protein after doing some research. I picked a brand based on the amount ingredients on their pea protein label. I narrowed my search down to Growing Naturals Pea Protein Powder.

With a price tag of $32.84, Growing Naturals Pea Protein is reasonably prices. I supplement my protein requirements with two servings of Growing Naturals Pea Protein after a workout or when I’m unable to meet my daily protein intake goal. Nine hundred and fifty grams of pea protein last me about two weeks. I’ve been using Growing Naturals Pea Protein for three months and it has not disappoint. The vanilla flavor is rich and true to taste with no lingering after taste. I have tried the original flavor and it is very difficult to swallow due to its chalky taste and texture. Despite which flavor you choose, they mix well with water in a blender bottle after 2-3 shakes. It will separate and thicken if you let it sit after mixing, but remixes very easy. Cleaning-up is also easy. I use water and 5-10 vigorous shakes to clean my blender bottle even after the pea protein has dried. Overall, I give Growing Naturals Pea Protein 5 out of 5 stars for its great taste, mix-ability, and performance.
