Being a vegetarian, I learned right away that without some protein in my diet, I would become extremely ravenous and eat anything and everything in the kitchen, but nothing would quite satiate me. If you go meat free, first off, me and the animals love you, but secondly, you’ve still got to get some form of protein in your diet.
While there are lots of shakes out there still made of animal protein, if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can still find great options that don’t contain egg, dairy, or animal proteins.
I’ve tried a few, and if you’ve ever had a vegan protein shake, they definitely have a bit of a different taste. Some brands will add lots of sugar to it to make it taste a little better, but if you’re heath conscious like I am, you certainly don’t want, or need, extra sugar.
I was so excited to try out my Naturade Vegan Smart All in 1 Nutritional shakes, because they are vegan, obviously, and because they come in some really great flavors, like Chocolate, vanilla, and my favorite, chai! They also are super low in sugar! Most have only 5 or 6 grams of sugar per serving, which is really pretty amazing.
