  • no more protein powder for me

    I thought i would try the brown rice protein powder once more. im going to say "no". i guess its the amino acids within the protein itself because the ingredients should have been ok. brown rice nad something else, cant remember. frustrates me b/c they were so good to have a morning pick-me-up. something easy and healthy. im blue

          It was recommended to me to try "all whites". You can buy them next to egg beaters. I used that with rice dream, almond butter, cinnamon, van. ice cream, ice. Taste good.
