If you have trouble getting enough lean protein in your diet, or even if you love the idea of smoothies and shakes with protein powder but haven’t been able to stand the taste, Perfect Fit protein powder may be your answer.
I’m not a vegetarian, but I just don’t enjoy eating meat. I’ve tried several different protein powders over the past 10 years or soâ€”different brands and flavors of whey, soy, brown riceâ€”and up until now, there was only one that didn’t disgust me or make me sick because of the artificial sweeteners (Jay Robb’s Whey Protein).
I’m not willing to give up the Jay Robb protein powder completely. It just works better in some recipes because it firms up a little more (in certain pancakes, for example), but I really do love the Perfect Fit organic brown rice protein.
For one thing, whey protein powder can cause bloating. I haven’t had that problem with brown rice protein powder. On the flip side of that, though, all the other brown rice protein powders I’ve tried tasted like wet sand so I never wanted to use them. I usually had to choose between feeling a little bloated or dealing with a less than desirable flavor.
Perfect Fit actually tastes good, so I use it more than I use the whey protein. It’s vanilla-flavored and sweetened with stevia. It doesnâ€™t remind me of wet sand or cardboard at all.
The name’s not really an exaggeration, either. The founders (the girls from ToneItUp.com) worked hard to achieve a delicious powder that would be good for just about anyone. It’s:
- Low sodium
- Contains no sugar, corn, soy, wheat, or allergens
A couple of additional perks:
- It’s travel-friendly because it comes in single serving packets with 15 grams of protein each.
- It dissolves easily. Use it in coffee, chocolate coconut water, etc, to squeeze some extra protein into your diet. Be sure to stir the powder in gradually rather than dumping a packet into a medium coffee like I did (I was in a hurry and a little bit too excited that my order had finally come in the mail). It almost all dissolved in there, but it would’ve been better if I’d used less.
