Whey protein powder may be the most popular, but that doesn’t mean it’s the healthiest. Sure, whey protein contains all nine amino acids, but it’s been known to wreak havoc on some people’s digestive systems. And if you’re lactose intolerant, whey may not even be a real option. If you’re looking to get your protein fix but want to skip the whey way, here are five all-natural alternatives that deliver the same muscle-building and mood-boosting results.
1. PBfit All-Natural Peanut Butter Powder
The original all-natural protein booster, this pot of peanut butter is power-packed with eight grams of protein per serving. With only three full ingredients (peanuts, coconut palm sugar and salt), you won’t have to worry about extra additives or strange ingredients.
2. 22 Days Nutrition Organic Protein Powder
For when you want a little extra flavor in your drink, this strawberry-flavored protein powder offers 20 grams of plant-based protein per serving. Made with only natural high-quality ingredients, this powder is soy, gluten and dairy-free.
3. MRM All Natural Egg White Protein
Like eggs? Like vanilla? You’ll love this natural egg white protein powder with a rich vanilla taste. Great for people who want a little extra protein in the diet and don’t want to go the whey route, this brand is gluten-free, dairy-free and is a solid choice for people who are lactose intolerant.
4. Premium Pea Protein Powder
Naturally sweet, this premium pea protein powder (try saying that five times fast) offers a potent 25 grams of protein per serving. With no added sugars, this brand is all natural and is extremely low in fat and carbs.
5. Vegan Protein Powder
Gluten-free, all-natural and extra delicious, this box of vegan protein powder offers an impressive 100% plant-based blend made from organic yellow peas and brown rice. Two hearty tablespoons a day is all you need.
