So my remaining two taste tests on the protein shakes that were provided to me by GNC (opinions totally my own) were the 100% Egg Protein and the Vega Sport.
I must say that they Pro-Performance 100% Egg Protein is my absolute favorite! It was a very light tasting and feeling shake. I think some can be heavy and this one was perfect for the morning or a snack!
Unlike dairy based proteins it is naturally lactose free and much easier to digest! One serving provides the quality protein found in 4 eggs but with much less fat and cholesterol! This is a great one and has been added into my weekly routine.
The Vega Sport is my least favorite – and my first introduction to the Vegan lifestyle. Maybe my taste buds were not ready? It smelled great, but had a taste/texture that did not match the anticipation. I talked with GNC and they have allowed me to pass this on to a friend who is Vegan and I am waiting on her report back. I just felt like I was not able to give a great response on the flavor – but I can tell you some facts!
It is a complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein blend. It is formulated to improve strength and exercise performance, repair and build muscles,a nd reduce recovery time between training. This comes from the SaviSeed protein which is a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component in serotonin production which helps with the mental aspect of recovery!!! Totally awesome but just not the taste I want.
Stay tuned as I have decided on a regimen of the Egg Protein, Whey Protein, and the Caesin. I am going to be testing that out for the next month or so and I will let you know how I feel and what I have found from it!!
