Complete Veggie Protein Powder from NFL's Tony Gonzalez
Posted Jun 11 2010 5:20am
As I've mentioned before, I stopped eating meat several months ago. Honestly, I'm not even sure how long it's been, because, surprisingly, I don't miss it at all.
One of the biggest challenges most people have with giving up meat is where they are going to get their protein from. While there is serious debate on just how much protein you need to begin with, one of the easiest sources for the protein-conscious is still protein shakes.
But, since I also gave up dairy (almost all of the time), my options were severely limited in terms of completely vegan protein powders. I thought that the few that existed would be stuck in the dark days of early protein powders that all tasted like absolute death.
I took the plunge and decided to sample the Complete Veggie Protein from All-Pro Science, founded by NFL superstar, Tony Gonzalez.
There are several videos of Tony actively engaged in using and even overseeing the manufacturing of the product, and you can see instantly that he is genuine and knowledgeable about what he wants in a healthy protein powder.
You get 23 grams of plant-based protein in every scoop, plus a fortified formula of vitamins, minerals, and flaxseed.
There are two flavors, and I can personally vouch for Vanilla. Not only was it great in water, but mixing it in with organic, all-natural apple juice (as recommended by Tony) took it to a whole 'nother level!
This stuff is a life-saver for quick and easy protein on the go, and the customer service couldn't be better with a knowledgeable staff that genuinely wants to help out.
Definitely try this out, whether you are vegetarian, vegan, or even if you eat anything and everything.
