I order my protein from True Nutrition and I get the 70% pea and 30% organic rice protein blend sweetened with Stevia. It's about $6.77/lb. I try and get less than 1/3 of my protein from protein powders, at 250g/day that's about 75g.
It's an acquired taste but it doesn't have any nasty additives or garbage and it doesn't give me zits like soy does.
I bought a whole bunch of protein from truenutrition.com, which does make great stuff. I've had the gemma pea protein, the rice protein, the potato protein . . . Lately though, I found that even a little bit of that stuff gives me terrible gas. Sorry to be rude, but it is unbearable. Lately I've tried to focus on getting more protein from whole foods. Have you tried Pardina Lentils (green lentils)? They are 30% protein, coming in at an amazing 26g per 3.5oz dry. Combine that with some peas, and you have a low calorie, fiber rich, high protein meal that is pretty tasty.
