MLO Brown Rice ProteinAs I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying my darnedest to cut back on my soy intake. So instead of soy protein powder, I’ve been loving this brown rice protein powder from MLO. I’ve been adding it to my breakfast smoothies, and it gives me a nice energy boost. Two tablespoons is 110 calories and 15 grams of protein. I usually do half a serving and it still keeps me full until noon. I haven’t tried it “plain” (just mixed into a glass of water or non-dairy milk) because I think that would taste heinous; I mean, who wants to drink brown rice flavored water? But in my smoothie, I can’t taste it at all. This is my favorite vegan protein powder so far. Is there a better one out there I should try?

These days, my breakfast smoothie consists of:

  • 1 tbsp. brown rice protein powder
  • 1 tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 1 whole ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup natural apple juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. stevia in the raw
  • ice
