I don't see a problem with it they're typically more expensive, but if you want to mix it up and get like a raw protein powder than go for it.

I'd rather have meat. If I ever used soy or protein from a plant, I would feel like a woman who does crossfit

The issue with plant protein/vegan protein is that the protein sources used is ubiquitous in the modern food supply. Whey however is not. So from a purely logical POV, it doesn't make sense to go out of ones way to pay extra money for something that we already have abundant and cheap access to in the first place.
Up to the customer though, it's their money.

plant protein doesn't have as high of a absorbant rate as whey or meat protein does.
Unless I was vegan I wouldn't touch it

Some good points here. Thank you. Maybe I'll try it one day just to change a little as I use whey for years and really enjoy it

I feel the best and most reliable sources of protein are milk proteins such as whey and casein however if someone was to consider vegetarian sources the only ones that would seem to be worth looking into would be Hemp and Pea protein, Rice texture isnt the nicest and price doesnt help all that much, pea protein is becoming more available and might be worth it, Hemp has a nutty taste great source of EFA and fiber but at the price your better off buying whey and fish oils and fiber separately.
The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

Brown rice protein is quite gritty. If I add cocoa powder and rice milk to it I can drink it comfortably.
Hemp is less tolerable for me and also significantly more expensive.
Pea protein I managed to drink half a serving after adding a huge amount of cocoa to try and cover the flavour. I threw the rest of the serving away and haven't touched it again since lol.
