Protein shakes?

I know they are not raw, but i need something to help me transition. I crave my protein. I used to work out alot, and still do, so my body screams for it. It doesnt have to be much, like this week i “tasted” of a baked salmon fillet all week. I think protein shakes would help me. Any suggestions or other ideas


  • I’m guessing that when you say protien your meaning from cooked sources? But what do you mean you crave protien?

    If you really craved nutrition/protien wouldn’t you be craving fresh produce too since the building blockes of protien is amino acids…

    Personaly I just think your craving heavy cooked foods!

    Broccoli and Spinach have twice the protein of beef. (the highest protein meat) Many plant foods contain more protein than meat.

    If you want a shake that will stop your cravings then toss the following items into your blender. 3.5 oz. Kale, 8 Dates, 1 Banana, 16 ounces of Orange Juice and a tiny pinch of salt.

    Hi. You might try the Brandon Brazier protein shake recipe that’s on this forum. Search for Brandon as I’m not sure I spelled his last name correctly. ;o) Also, I have found that a tablespoon of hemp seed added to my smoothies helps me. I work out a lot and I sometimes feel a little tapped out, too. Hemp seed gives me 5 grams. Good luck!

  • No, fruitarianone, the idea of heavy cooked foods make me sick to my stomach.I felt satisfied doing the vegan eat alot of nuts thing. However this made me feel bloated after a while. Thank you all for the protein shake ideas. I think part of my problem is living on college campus, i love kale and spinach..i guess i just need to up my intake. thank you so much for your information.
