*Plant proteins are the perfect base for a rich creamy shake and now there are many great options that are healthy and enjoyable for daily shakes. My favorite is Omni pea protein, but some Brain Warriors use hemp protein or brown rice protein. When shopping for the perfect protein powder for your shakes makes sure to take a close look at the label. There should be no additives or added sugars in your blend. Many people enjoy making their own fresh blends by buying one each of plain hemp, pea and brown rice proteins and creating a mix they can easily add each day. ___________________________ You can find our line of protein powder here.
