Protein post-workout drink options
As I've been looking for more ways to increase my protein (without dairy and soy), I have run across a few options for a quick post-workout drink.
1. 1/4-1/3 c egg whites (you can buy pasteurized egg whites for safety) + 1 c orange juice or pineapple juice. Blend together. You can add fresh fruit and ice to make a thicker drink (banana, strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
2. Buy a pea, hemp, or rice based protein mix from a health food store or online at www.vitacost.com.
