Protein isolates are heavily processed. Their impact on health is a subject of some debate in holistic circles.
While I do not believe they are downright terrible, I do believe there are less heavily processed and more nourishing options out there. One of them is pea protein.
This is a favorite among raw athletes. With choices like this, why would anyone seek out highly processed and unnaturally sweetened powders?
Here is a delicious Verry Berry Smoothie (with a nice hint of chocolate) for you:

- 1 scoop ProPeas

Blend well and enjoy!
