WHAT PROTEIN DO I LIKE?
I have tried at least 10 different protein powders and my favorite is Sprout Living. I get the vanilla lucuma but all of the flavors are good! I love this one because it is a complete protein source with no fillers or gums. They also use things like real vanilla or cacao so the protein doesn’t taste like chemicals.
