We sometimes put in Garden of Life raw vegan protein powder in our morning smoothies. It has 18g of protein.<br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FGarden-Life-RAW-Protein-622g%2Fdp%2FB0031JK96C%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1325107676%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Garden-Life-RA...5107676&sr=8-1</a>

Hemp protein tastes like salty monkey balls.

Unless you're a cross country athlete or something I can't think of a good reason you need to take any protein supplements at all.

I use sometimes protein powder in a morning smoothie before a lecture or after a weight training session as its an easy and quick way to get a hit of protein and I'm not a cross country athlete, just someone who's keen to keep fit and healthy - though I recognise that I don't HAVE to use protein powder to achieve the same effect.<br><br>
In my experience, different brands of soy protein blend differently to others and from what I've noticed, it tends to be the more expensive ones which blend easier.

Does it contain soy protein isolate? I haven't heard good things about the stuff, but who really knows...google it and read up.<br><br>
I use NutriBiotic Vanilla Rice Protein Powder. 60 calories, 12 grams of protein per serving. It mixes very well in my food processor. You could also try some soft silken tofu in your shakes.<br><br>
Nuts are a good source of protein and require no time or effort. Lentils are very good and are very easy to make. You just have to rinse and then boil. I just make a ton of them all at once and have them for a week or more. I put them in soups, curry them, or put them in tacos.

How is it a good source if they contain twice or thrice as much as fat as proteins?

I think it's a good source if a person doesn't want to take any time to prepare something. They have more protein than a lot of snacks a person could eat. Personally, I've never worried about the fat or had problems with weight gain from eating them.

Same here. I'd be lost without my raw almonds on busy days.<br><br>
I am not a cross-country athlete but would use a protein powder if I could find one that didn't taste like garbage or blend like dirt. I cannot stand gritty smoothies.

I add hemp seeds and chia seeds to my smoothies. Not only for protein though.
