REVIEW: Sun Warrior Plant Protein Powder

I’ve never been a fan of powder drinks, save for shaking up some NesQuik with my favorite soy milk for that familiar chocolate-milk fix. So, when the folks at Sun Warrior reached out to me to try the latest trend in protein powders that were 100% vegan and green-ified, I was a bit skeptical.

Admittedly, when I first started my never-ending vegan journey, I was a powdered-potion adherent. I’d routinely down this absolutely abhorrent green spirulina drink I thought would protect me from the vegan “malnutrition” risks everyone told me I’d have. It was a consumption purely driven by fear, and guess what? I’m totally healthy after stopping the fear and the drinking of green goo.

I’m giving this spiel, basically, to let my readers know that a varied vegan diet provides plenty of protein, and the existence of these powders are more suited for those who want muscle definition, not to cover a perceived “protein deficiency” of any kind.

Having said that, enjoy my video review of Sun Warrior Plant-based Protein Powder!

One such source became my visit to Bao Shoppe, a casual cafe-like spot that felt vaguely like upscale truck food. Ambiance –  Bao Shoppe has a street/urban-like vibe, what with its graffiti featuring the N train and industrial tubing across […]
