Review of Garden of Life Vanilla Raw Protein

Feb 26

Hello Friends!  It has been a very rainy day here in Ohio.  I desperately need some warm weather and sunshine!  I wanted to pull the covers over my head and sleep the day away, but, instead, I went to CrossFit this morning.  It completely kicked my butt!  It felt great! :)

This is the workout:

10 warm up front squats and then 5-5-5-5-5 front squats.  You add weight each time until you get to your max weight.

Five rounds of:

10 burpee pull ups (ten burpees and ten pull ups)

20 back squats

40 situps

When you read that, it doesn’t sound that bad.  When I actually did all those things that many times, it was truly awful….in a good way!

Ok, so I wanted to let you guys know about another protein powder that I tried, Garden of Life Vanilla Raw Protein.  I have been looking for a healthier protein powder without a ton of artificial ingredients.  It’s really hard to find a natural protein powder that tastes good!

I’m sorry to say that this protein powder was disappointing!  Actually, it was terrible!  The directions said to combine one scoop in 6 ounces of water.  Well, it took everything in me to drink it that way.  It was extremely gritty.  I felt like I was drinking a cup of water with sand in it….yuck!

I think the best way to use this protein powder is for baking or making fruit smoothies.  That way, you would not have to deal with the sandy texture!

Does anyone know of a really good protein powder that is all natural and healthier?  Please let me know!

  1. Thanks for the review – there are so many protein powders out there, it helps when someone lets you in on a good or bad one! Sounds like I won’t be trying this one…

    Way to go on the CrossFit workout!
