Are you lactose intolerant? Vegan ? Have a gluten allergy or want to try a more natural protein ? Raw protein by Garden Life may be for you.
I wasn't paid for this review or asked to do one, but I have been searching high and low for a protein like this one.
I have issues with dairy digestion and have issues when I take whey protein. So a protein powder like this has helped me tremendously. I have a chocolate flavor I've tried their original flavor and it taste like brown rice. The chocolate flavor doesn't taste like a chocolate milkshake, the chocolate in this is very "raw" exactly what it says on the container. It has a very natural flavor.
As you can see the ingredients are completely recognizable ranging from sunflower seed , to millet and quinoa and pumpkin. All legible ingredients and no artificial flavoring. Best of all it agrees with my stomach. It is low in calories as well as carbs. This product is protein in a different form.
In my opinion it is a bit pricey the above container was $28.81 USD but I think it's worth it because I have yet to find a protein powder that agrees with me. I got it from Natural Healthy Concepts it was one of the lower prices I've found. I know the other option would be to actually have chicken or fish as a protein snack however I am always on the move and a powder is a better choice for me.
*Gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture
