Protein powders seem to be taking over supermarket shelves and not in a good way. Many of the containers promise increased muscle and endurance using powders laden with chemicals and artificial flavors. I want wholesome (and vegan!) ingredients to fuel me during my workouts. Undeterred, I began sampling protein powders. After sampling some chalky, bland tasting brands, I tried HealthForce. I knew I had my winner.
HealthForce protein powder is 100% raw, vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO. The protein powder is made from a base of organic, sprouted brown rice and organic hemp. HealthForce then adds in nopal cactus for endurance and blood sugar function, arctic root for endurance, vanilla bean, whole stevia leaf, and a variety of enzymes.
Personally, I like HealthForce vanilla protein powder mixed with almond milk, although it is also delicious when mixed with coconut water and in smoothies. It tastes like a vanilla milkshake. I love that I can see the small black specks of real vanilla bean! The protein powder is great for a pre or post workout drink. It takes the edge off my hunger before a workout without making me feel heavy and helps me not overeat after a workout.
HealthForce also has a chocolate protein powder. I haven’t had a chance to try the chocolate flavor yet, but I’m guessing that the cacao powder and cinnamon listed as ingredients on the label ensure it taste delicious! Did I mention that the packaging is made out of recycled material? Definitely a product worth trying!
