You can MAKE your own protein powder! I made a big quart jar over the summer that's still in my fridge (though almost gone!) and it was
a) way cheaper than store-bought
b) filled with pronounceable things (instead of mysterious chems)
d) super fast and easy to make (if you have some kind of food processor)
I used this recipe: http://www.thefirstmess.com/2012/01/09/ ... otein-mix/
for inspiration, but made a lot of tweaks to suit my own tastes/what was in my kitchen at the moment (another bonus to making your own).
Mine's made with:
-steel cut oats
-1 bunch of kale, dried in the oven.
All run through the food processor, mixed in a bowl and stored in a jar.
I haven't tried to figure out any exact nutritional info on it yet, but I can definitely tell a difference when I use it (three heaping tablespoonsful = fuller for much longer)
((ps- making a big jar for my mom for Christmas!))
