I chose pea protein powder because it seems to have the best amino acid profile and the lowest price of the non-soy vegan protein powders (judging by the amino-acid profiles listed on the NOW foods pea protein container, and the Naked Rice protein container). I didn't choose soy because of its phytic acid content which inhibits mineral absorption (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1503071) and its phytoestrogen content. Pea protein also contains some phytic acid but you can counteract it by taking about some vitamin C with each meal (http://www.precisionnutrition.com/all-about-phytates-phytic-acid). Of course, if you don't mind the other side effects of soy, you can take vitamin C with soy protein as well.

I chose to use more than needed omega-3 because it is from alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), which does not offer as many benefits as the fish-derived omega-3s EPA and DHA. However, ALA can be converted to EPA and DHA but only minimally, so I added more omega-3 to try to accelerate that conversion (http://www.alligga.com/conversion-of-ala-into-epa-and-dha/).
