Protien powder help :)

Unflavored powders can be difficult to find locally, I don't know that I have seen it in stores, and I do look if I happen to be near that section as I'd like to buy it too. The one I have is "Any Whey" brand and I like it...but i had to order online, I think I got it from Amazon but not sure as it was quite a while ago.
I'm a little surprised they told you to buy unflavored....personally I think that would be pretty icky if I had to mix it up and drink it down. There are a lot of good whey isolate protien powders in stores, but they are flavored. If you look at the labels you will be able to see calories/carbs . Mostly I go through a lot of vanilla flavor because I can add things to it to change up the flavor. I'm not so particular about the brand, in 2 years I have only found one that I didn't care for so I used it as an additive for baking.

Walmart has a fruit punch flavor. I know many other brands have flavors like that too. If you want to avoid milk, I would suggest a non-creamy flavored powder like the punch, etc.
I replied to your other post, so you know about Isopure which is fruity, and Unjury.com for chicken soup and strawberry sorbet which doesn't need milk. I think your best bet for finding one that suits you would be to go to Vitalady.com and order sample packs. This way you can try several without spending a lot of money. If you still want unflavored, Unjury sells it also and the upside is that if you don't like it, it can be returned for a full refund.

You should be able to find a unflavored protein powder at The Vitamin Shoppe.

Jay Robb is decent. You can get it from Amazon or at Vitamin Shoppe. It's WAY cheaper on Amazon, and they deliver fast.

I buy the unflavored syntrax nectar from Amazon. I've yet to find unflavored at a brick and mortar store. I use it in my coffee, then flavor my coffee how I want it, since I am not a fan of the vanilla flavored powders in my coffee. I rarely use it for anything else, but figured the unflavored is the most flexible powder to have. I do not drink shakes, I almost always rely on getting my protein from solid protein (chicken, fish, meat) or mostly protein foods (greek yogurt, cheese, nuts, seeds).
