1. Garden of Life Organic Raw Fit

"This raw vegan protein powder is made with raw sprouted proteins from sources such as whole grains, seeds, and legumes, and provides 28 grams of protein," says Enright. Lindsay also points out that it contains Ashwagandha, which is an adaptogenic herb thought to help combat stress, inflammation, and cortisol. ($30 for 1 lb; gnc.com)

Protein: 28 grams per 1-scoop serving

(Related: BTW, this is why adaptogens are worth the health hype.)

2. SunWarrior Classic Protein Powder

"This is one of my personal favorites," says Lindsay. "It has a decent amount of iron, lower sugar, uses organic ingredients, has a good protein-to-calorie ratio (about 15 grams for 80 calories), uses a blend of plant-based protein, tastes great, and is easily digestible." ($32 for 500g; sunwarrior.com)

3. ProMix Grass-Fed Whey Protein

"This unflavored protein powder is just whey protein concentrate," says Lindsay. "Grass-fed whey may contain more omega-3 fats and other nutrients, and may be preferable for some based on ethical or environmental reasons." ($20 for 1 lb; promixnutrition.com)
