5. Orgain Organic Protein

"I often recommend protein blends when choosing protein powders," says Ziegelbaum. "Similar to how I would recommend having multiple food groups at each meal, a protein blend will also provide a variety of nutrients. This blend contains organic brown rice protein, organic chia seed, organic hemp protein, and organic pea protein." There is a small amount of added sweetener, but it's in the form of stevia and monk fruit extract, which are no-calorie natural options. ($33 for 2.03 lbs; gnc.com)

6. Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Collagen Whey

"This supplement has 27 grams of protein per serving, which is at the higher end for protein powders," says Linsday. "This protein powder has a short ingredient list, a combination of protein and fiber, plus collagen and probiotics without any added sugars or artificial ingredients," adds Ziegelbaum. While the jury's still out on whether you should be adding collagen to your diet, it is a good source of protein in itself. ($49 for 1.3 lbs; vitalproteins.com)

7. Ancient Nutrition Organic Bone Broth Protein

Bone broth protein might sound like a head-scratcher at first, but it's simply made from dehydrated bone broth liquid, says Enright. "It can be a good addition to soups and sauces to increase protein content due to the lack of taste-altering flavor," she says. "The nutrients found in bone broth support joints, skin, digestive function, and muscles." ($55 for 1.09 lbs; draxe.com)

8. Naked Nutrition Egg White Protein Powder

"This protein powder has 25 grams of protein per serving and just two ingredients," Lindsay says. "It's great for those who are on a paleo or dairy-free diet."

Mandy Enright, R.D.N., R.Y.T., a dietitian and creator of the couples nutrition blog Nutrition Nuptials, is also a fan of the brand's other products. "Naked Nutrition's original Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder is one of my favorites that I recommend to clients who are looking for ways to add additional protein to their diet," says Enright. "The plain 'naked' flavor makes it more versatile so it can be added to anything without altering the taste." ($65 for 3 lbs; nkdnutrition.com)

9. Klean Athlete Klean Isolate

Lindsay likes this protein powder because it packs 20 grams of protein for just 100 calories—a great ratio. It also uses whey isolate instead of whey concentrate, which is preferable, she says. "Whey isolates are considered purer and are higher in protein than whey concentrates." ($49.50 for 20.5 oz; kleanathlete.com)
