    Hey guys,

    Iv been trying to get more protein in my diet recently but due to lots of allergies I have, Iv been finding myself eating chicken 24/7 lol .. Iv been seeing alot of recipes around using protein powders which means I can increase my protein without eating the entire worlds supply of chicken lol ..

    My only problem is that it seems to be pretty expensive! I had a look in tesco and on the internet and it seems they only sell big tubs for around £20-£30! I only want a small tub to trial and see how I get on with it so does anyone have any ideas where I can buy some protein powder without spending and arm and a leg?!

    Im pretty sure myprotein do single doses of protein. It comes in bottles and you can get one for under £2.

    Check out the holland and Barrett website they sometimes have the whey protein powder on offer at half price and it tastes great too xxx

    Another alternative to protein powder is powdered milk. You can pick it up from most supermarkets and it contains about 20% protein once mixed with the recommended amount of water.

    I've found pretty good ones one ebay, the best ones to pick have around 70% or more protein per 100g and as few additives as possible like sweeteners etc
    I personally get concentrated grass fed hormone free whey protein but it's pretty pricey.

    I buy from myprotein.com. I'm thinking of trying holland and barratt as its cheap and supposedly good. But you can get individual sachets from myprotein.

    I buy a product called nectar sweets which is just pure protein! It has only 25cals per shake and they do loads and loads of different flavours! The one I have at the mo is Oreo cookie! I bought a big drum of it for €30 so it will be cheaper in pounds

    I used to buy from Myprotein.com but also from Bulkpowders.com

    I am sensitive to dairy so to have pea, soy, brown rice, hemp protein easily availble online is well and truly a godsend.

    Also have a look at Protein Pow(d)er - it's a cookbook on cooking with protein powders. You get to make "normal" foods like muffins and cakes and such.
