Plant-Based Protein Powders

Hello everyone, this is Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics and today I’m going to talk about some of my very favorite protein snacks and supplements.

In here I have an organic plant-based protein powder. Again, you’re getting anywhere from 22-25 grams of really great bio-available protein powder, but this is plant based. So many of them are now combining rice and pea protein powders, maybe some hemp protein powder, alfalfa protein powder.

The reason why I really am encouraging folks to try plant-based protein powders is because they’re generally cleaner, again, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no artificial sweeteners. Many of them are using stevia or erythritol for the sweetener.

This one is organic and non-genetically modified. These are just really great for folks who do have issues after surgery with whey protein powder and again, it doesn’t have to be this brand.

This is one of my favorite brands, but there’s many really great companies out there that are now putting out plant-based protein powders.
