Hi! I am new (to the site, relatively new to veganism) so please bear with me if this topic has been previously discussed.
I do not digest soy well, like at all, mainly because I depended heavily on soymilk and tofu for the first 2 years of my veganism, and had no clue about nutrition. As I learned more and more about vitamins, minerals, essential FA and amino acids, phytonutrients, ratio of macro to micro nutrients, etc, I feel that I have developed quite a good understanding of what nurtients my body needs and in what amounts. Still toying around with the macros, but for the most part I feel pretty good.
My main question is how do you guys afford protein powders? I love drinking a green smoothie every morning and either use RAW plant protein or Plant Fustion, mainly because these are the cheapest vegan proteins I have been able to find that are high raw and contain enzymes and probiotics. But I go through them so quickly, and as a broke ass student, I just cant keep up some months! And then I read here, that everyone is diggin VEGA or Sunwarrior, which are so much more expensive! Does anyone have any advice for little ole me???
