I'm looking at alternatives to whey protein like Pea, Egg and Hemp proteins. I use MyProtein.com in the UK: any thoughts on the following products?
I love Whey and the results I get from it; basically the only dairy in my diet but there's nothing that compares to it for muscle growth and recovery. Not for everyone but a Paleo approach with a little dairy has been proven effective for those wanting to perform athletically.
Egg whites and powders are oxidized cholesterol.
Pea is a legume.
Hemp was historically used as a plant fiber far before then food. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
These protein powders tend to be used by vegan or vegetarian people.
All are inferior to pastured meats and wild seafood but you could probably use them a few times a week.
The hubby and I used to use whey, egg, and pea powders but post-Paleo we can't stand the taste of them.
We prefer real food to powders!
