    I have been using whey powder powder as part of my breakfast protein shake. I use an all natural, organic one which is lactose free and coming from New Zealand, grass fed beef. It has no gums, is sweetened with stevia and also has organic cocoa powder.

    What are your thoughts on this? I know that milk products can be cross reactive. If this is a “no, no” then has anyone found a good protein powder substitute? I know there is a yellow pea one out there but haven’t done any research on it yet.

    Thanks

    Protein shakes are not recommended if you tolerate eating whole food well.  I typically reserve these powders for those who are severely ill and have a hard time processing food due to GI damage. 

    When I do recommend a powder, I recommend Ultra Protein (from organic pea) vs. the dairy blends.  You can call my office 281-240-2229 and ask about it.

    All the best,

    Thank you! I have found a good vegetable based one made from pea, pumpkin seed and spirulina proteins from Omega Nutrition. I like doing a “smoothie” in the mornings with lots of spinage, celery, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and bluberries – it’s a good way to get those extra nutrients in one go!
