I hear a bunch of talk about slow release protein for night time. Most people talk about Casein protein powder or whey protein powder with milk or cottage cheese. Do you guys use a slow release protein at bedtime and if so, what are the vegan alternatives?

Hi,
First post here.

Cottage Cheese is a excellent source for slow absorbing casien protein.

Just take a few spoonfuls before bed.

Maybe so, but hardly a "vegan alternative". :)

cottage cheese is amazing but you are right, it is not vegan. I have not had it in such a long time. I loved eating it before "the change" :)

I believe someone has said that soy protein is absorbed slowly. Eat it with some oatmeal and that will probably last a few hours.

I would think something like Peanut butter but I'll have to look into it. I haven't really thought about it, I just eat "some" sort of protein before bed. Sometimes peanut butter, other times tofu, other times beans, a protein shake, or just a meal with broccoli, potatoes, etc.

Drinking water with the protein source would make it digest a little slower, so that might help too.

I thought water made things digest at a quicker rate, was I wrong?

Peanut butter is more of a fat than a protein though...you could eat it with a fast-digesting protein to slow digestion, I guess, though?

:P Yeah peanut butter is more of a fat, however, you'll be hard-pushed to find a food which is mostly protein. Foods are generally high carbohydrate, or high fat. Other than protein drinks, I don't even know of something which is higher in protein than it is in carbs or fat.

That's right. But i wouldn't mix it with carbs for the night (no oats).

Drinking water doesn't prolong the absorption, but the digestion (gastric emptying time) - not what you want!
