The food industry is making an absolute killing (literally) selling protein powders that are filled with highly processed denatured proteins, chemicals, preservatives and other additives. It’s easy to fall prey for a protein powder that makes claims no one is checking on or regulating. That is why it is absolutely critical to investigate your protein powders before taking that scoop.
I fell victim to a HORRENDOUS protein powder back in the day. (You can read that story here)…
Luckily, I did a investigation of several popular protein powders and made a list of ingredients to watch out for…I found it funny that the entire comments section of this post became an advertisement for one of the most popular meal replacement shakes out there that refuses to get organically certified and is using non-organic ingredients from the dirty dozen list throughout their product.
If you are paying big money to supplement with a protein powder, (let’s be honest, they are not cheap!) it better have the highest quality ingredients. Why pay more for less quality?
While doing my investigation, I did not consider one protein powder that I found out was an absolute favorite of my readers. So I decided to go back and look into this brand a little deeper and ask them to host a giveaway. I loved what I found out – especially after I tasted some.
Sun Warrior is a completely raw protein powder that uses the highest quality plant-based protein available. They are currently seeking USDA organic certification and are non-GMO. I love how they don’t make excuses for getting organic certified – saying it’s too expensive, etc. They are just doing it because it is the right thing to do and their product lives up to organic certified standards.
The Warrior Blend combines organic hemp, pea and cranberry protein (a fantastic combination!) and adds the metabolism boosting qualities of coconut’s medium chain fatty acids. This blend is my favorite of their product line and this is what Sun Warrior has generously offered to giveaway to 10 readers!
Each winner will receive 1 Bag of Classic Chocolate and 1 Bag of Vanilla Warrior Blend … Each bag retails for $44.95 – so that means each winner will receive $90 worth of Sun Warrior!

My son cannot have any of that crap (especially Refined Sugar, Soy, and Carrageenan as they are seizure triggers). I’ve been looking for a protein shake for months and I may have just found one. Thanks readers for letting us know about this stuff.
