I recently bought recovery protein powder and bars from Vega Sport.. its a blend of varous protein sources. I dont use it that much though, i turned vegan recently but really try to take less protein supplements ( i would use about 2 whey protein shakes on a day in the past ).

Ive also used rice protein from Sunwarrior ( but its a bit chalky)
Pea protein as well, at first i HATED it ( but i was sooo used to whey, so yeah it was diffrent) but now i got used to it. Stirred into oatmeal it isnt all that bad :)

I was recently told about this product by a friend. I have never used it but he likes it a lot. It doesn't have any stevia in it like some of the Vega products do.

I would check www.veganproteins.com and www.veganessentials.com which carry a vast array of vegan supplements.

I highly recommend Plant Fusion. The protein sources come from pea isolate, brown rice concentrate and artichoke protein. Add to almond milk with some frozen fruit, the chocolate flavor seriously makes it taste like you're drinking a milk shake.

I had some Plant Fusion today :) Great stuff. The Chocolate Raspberry flavor is awesome!

I rarely use any, myself. There's generic brand they sell at publix, which I buy every once in a while. It's just called "veggie protein" or something like that. It's decent. 17g of protein per serving, no additives. Thor's Raw Power looks pretty awesome if you're willing to spend a little bit extra.

Since I cant get ahold of Sunwarrior vanilla brown rice protein in the bulk for a less-than-retail price, Ive switched to Nutribiotic's vanilla brown rice protein. It's quite flavorless and tastes great in vanilla Coconut Milk. I got 3lbs at VitaminShoppe for $26(no im not plugging).
