Protein powders and meal replacements are everywhere, touting all kinds of health benefits, sprawling ingredient lists (with words that are spelling bee sluggers) and most taste like chalky vanilla, fake chocolate, or worse. Pass!
Whenever possible, I’m a fan of choosing real food protein options, not processed powders, bars, or drinks. Still, there are cleaner options that pack more nutritional benefits than just protein. My favorite convenient protein powder is a collagen supplement.
