Eating protein at every meal may be the key to weight control and even boost your workout efforts. Protein powders make for a convenient option for adding this key nutrient into smoothies, hot cereals, coffee, soups and more. Most varieties supply about 10-20 grams per scoop (about 20-40% of your Daily Value), perfect for counting as a “meal’s” worth. But protein powders, made from real foods like eggs, milk, hydrolyzed animal parts and beans, are not created equally. Label reading is a must to check on protein sources and added sugars you may want to avoid.
