Wow! Thanks for the heads up on the Pumpkin Seed Protein seitanman. I just ordered some.

Those that are complaining about price... I'm as frugal as they come and I don't like spending extra for anything I don't have to, but lets not forget the importance of variety.

It's so important to diversify our protein sources and its definitely worth the cost to pay a little extra to fill in the gaps of what trueprotein offers. A little Pea, Hemp, Brown Rice, Pumpkin Seed.... that's going to ensure we're getting a wide array of amino acids that is sometimes lacking in a Vegan diet.

(By the way, it'd be cool if we could move this to the Health/Nutrition section and keep an ongoing list of Vegan Proteins that we stumble across)

I'd like to add Plant Fusion to the list. Same company as Nitro Fusion and pretty dang tasty.

..the moral of the story: don't buy it before you taste it!! I bought a tub of egg protein and whey a month ago... and went Vegan on Tuesday - so I have $100 left sitting in the cabinet.... live and learn babey.. live and learn :-)

Lookie what I found: http://www.wholelifenutrition.net/siteb ... dflour.pdf

I sent an email telling them there is some interest in their protein, but that the price is a limiting factor for many of us, asking if they can bring back the 5lb pails at the $28.50 price, or thereabouts. I told them how vegan bodybuilders and the like obviously use a lot of protein, so we would appreciate being able to buy it in quantity. :D

There's also this stuff - http://www.nutsonline.com/snacks/pumpki ... googlebase

A good price but it's not organic and not at all defatted so it's lower protein. At least it's good fats.

Here is a copy of the last email I got from Omega Nutrition on the pumpkin protein:

Hi Jacob,



Just to clarify, the 5 pound bucket is no longer available. The only size available is 26.5 oz.



Other members can avail this offer. This offer 25% off would apply to Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder 26.5 oz. size jar if ordering a case of 6 containers on the initial order only. Regular price is $16.97 each plus $10.00 shipping cost for every order in the continental U.S. With your next orders, 25% off will not be applied, however, buy 6 or more and get 1 more free will apply. Promotions cannot be combined with any other offer.



Also, Omega Nutrition offers 20% volume discounts for orders with a Total amount of $400.00 plus shipping cost of $10.00 flat rate in the continental U.S.

For example, an order of 24 jars of Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder 26.5 oz. will cost $335.83, shipping costs of $10.00 included.



Thank you.

Wow, pumpkin seed protein! Kick ass! I do the trueprotein.com stuff. 60% rice, 30% pea, 10% hemp. I went heavy on the rice because I've had all of these individually and think rice tastes the best. This protein tastes best with soy milk, a banana, berries and a splash of flax oil. Yum!

Who on this board DOES NOT take any supplements or protein shakes? I want to pick your brain and get schooled in your ways. Thank you.


I don't take protein shakes or any supplements other than B12. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not, but I seem to be making some pretty awesome strength gains (for me) just by eating a ton. Mostly I eat the cheap types of meals, some combination of brown rice and either lentils or chickpeas. And of course lots of vegetables. I have oatmeal with peanut butter every morning. I don't know, check out my log and see what you think of my progress, and if you think I sound like a pretty strong lady, I'll "school you in my ways." :) ....And if you have any ideas of how I can bench more weight, you should school me in your ways.

Particularly, I am a fan of buying some Non-GMO Rice/Pea sometimes hemp combination from www.trueprotein.com. Best value ever in my opinion. Then I buy bulk raw organic flax seeds for $1.99, bulk raw organic pumpkin seeds for $3.99, or bulk raw organic sunflower seeds for around $2.50, and grind about 1/4 cup (1 protein scoop's worth) in a coffee grinder, and toss them into my protein shake. You save a ton of money and keep the healthy essential fats and fiber that the seed provides. This works the best for me, and keeps $$ in my pocket.

Convenient, cost effective, faster absorption rate, lower in calories; protein powder is no whole food replacement but it does help make life a little bit easier.

Because peas are only 25% protein and the powder is greater than 90%.
