if you were on a tight budget and want protein, you should consider buying bulk unflavored protein
here, my local bulk supplements site will sell 20kg of rice protein for $279
that's approximately 500 servings, equalling about 56c per serving- pea protein is listed at the same price
if you're using vega or sunwarrior or something like that, it will be way more expensive, and from my experience, unflavored generic proteins taste much much better than sun/vega, just make sure it's a reputable source
i've never bothered with BCAA's myself, i like to keep it simple
That is awesome! I am going to be getting everything in bulk sooner or later. But seeing as I am poor (hence the title), I will have to save. You are absolutely right though; I should buy protein in bulk just like everything else! Where do you get your protein in bulk? I prefer my protein with nothing in it as well. And I know it is best to keep things simple but I am convinced most people do not see the value I see in them. I would never waste money on other supps that are not worth their weight in gold or muscle.
8oz peanut butter
8oz wheat bread
2230 cals, 82g protein, $5/day
Lol cool, more than half of my daily food allowance with less than 1/8 of the nutrition! I would not typically eat any of those ingredients (except mama's homemade jelly on occasion) because every one of them is processed. IDK if you caught this but I stick mainly to raw veganism. Health first, strength second, looks third.
