Hey all,

Money is tight right now, so I cut out protein powder and I am in the middle of a mass gaining phase. Any thoughts on a cheap protein powder? I believe Trader Joe's has a Soy Protein for $10.99 and it is a large jug. Any others? Not on-line please.

I am also looking for sugar free.

Maybe just tofu?

Thanks,
Rich

Tempeh had more protein than tofu

Any cheap powders?

I didn't want to pay shipping. How much is shipping at Pure protein? Looks like they don't list the amount of servings per container.

GNC card? Still cheaper than T Joes?

I am also looking for sugar free. :)

This! Even with shipping costs they're almost always going to be cheaper and their pea protein is $4.59 a pound or so..

I like mixing my own pea/rice/hemp 40/30/30 or so at http://truenutrition.com/p-1126-custom-mix.aspx
But cheapest local to me would definitely be Genisoy with 25g protein and 0 carbs. I don't use soy powder much any more but at around $10 it is a good bang for buck and the numbers are good...

Man I really miss whey protein powder. All the vegetarian protein powders are so nasty!!!!!!
A friend gave me 3 lbs of hemp protein that he didn't like. It is 18 grams a serving and tastes like a glass of mud!

I had some pretty nasty protein powder at one time and mixed it in Naked green machine.... Only way I could get it down. Jarrows I can drink straight and double the scoops but try to get most of my protein from meals

Are you vegan or vegetarian? As most whey proteins are vegetarian, obviously if you were vegan then you wouldn't use it.

I tired a vegan diet for a month, using hemp & soy powders. I liked the natural taste of the hemp (also strawberry) but the texture was horrible. The soy powder was simply revolting...

Shame you guys don't have myprotein there. Such a great company
