Strawberry Peach Smoothie with Goji Berries
Just a quickie post of the recipe for a simple, but delicious smoothie combination I put together this afternoon and the new protein powder I’m using. I’ve been researching various protein supplements looking for a clean, non-whey protein that doesn’t included soy. I checked several sources, including those provided by my vegan and vegetarian friends and my vegan, vegetarian and raw foodist Twitter followers, and Sun Warrior was most recommended, hands down. I start weight training next week and since I was almost out of the whey protein I’ve been using up till now, I knew I needed to find something pretty quickly. I have nothing against whey, but I started noticing that I would have issues with my sinuses shortly after drinking it. It took me a minute to put it together, but it happened every time and only when I used it (or other dairy), so I knew it was the culprit. I always have this reaction to nearly all dairy products, especially milk, cheese, ice cream and yoghurt, and since I’m trying to eliminate as many foods from my diet as I can that are not plant-based, it had to go.
So, I purchased the Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Raw Plant-Based Complete Protein Powder (Vanilla) this week and I am happy to say – I like it! I’m so glad and relieved that my search is finally over. I’ll definitely be sticking with this one, at least until something better comes my way.
