This is the protein powder that I have started to use on a daily basis as part of my muscle building diet. I only use this when I am trying to build muscle.
Keep in mind that when I am trying to lean down, I make sure that all of my protein comes from whole food sources, meaning I do not use a protein powder during that phase.
What I personally like about this particular protein powder is that it is made from raw, plant-based, whole foods. I like that it tastes great. I like how it makes me feel.
It is an easily digestible, nutrient-dense superfood. It is exceptionally high in glutamic acid, arginine, leucine, and branched chain amino acids. It doesn’t have any sugar; not even naturally occurring from whole foods like fruits. It doesn’t contain excessive fruits like some other ‘super food’ protein powders or meal replacement shakes.

The Importance of Protein:
Protein intake is a key factor in accelerating muscle development. Sometimes it is extremely challenging to get the protein your body needs with the right timing. Sunwarrior protein is great because it is convenient and it is a non-soy plant based protein that also has a complete amino acid profile.

Ingredients and Nutritional Data:
It is made from raw, sprouted, whole grain brown rice.
While I am “off season” and building muscle, I jump start my metabolism every morning with this protein and a glass of water to help sculpt and define muscle. I also have a scoop before and after a workout. It mixes up into a really smooth texture. I love to add it to almond milk, 100% pasteurized liquid egg whites, coffee, or even just a bit of water.
Keep in mind that whole food sources are always best, this is just to supplement your already very healthy diet. The majority of your protein should come from whole foods.
Pros of Sunwarrior Protein:
Here’s the basic points of awesomeness about this protein powder:
100% Raw Vegan
83% Pure Protein
Complete Amino Acid Profile
I highly recommend this protein powder. I have tried other raw, vegan powders as well, like Garden of Life, Vega, Warrior Power, and Nutribiotic. This is my personal favorite.
I used to use Muscle Milk and although I must admit that Muscle Milk tastes delicious, I personally had increased sugar cravings while I used it compared to when I use Sunwarrior. I feel fuller when I use Sunwarrior, but without any stomach upset. I also don’t get as hungry.
Also, Sunwarrior protein has about half the calories in each scoop, but still has the same amount of protein.
If you are currently using a whey protein powder or soy protein powder, try this one for a few days instead and see if you notice a difference.
