It’s time to introduce all of you to a fabulous brand that I have recently fallen in love with…Vega! I’ve been on the hunt for a gluten/dairy/soy/sugar free protein powder that not only tastes amazing, but gives my body the proper nutrients that it needs. I was overjoyed when I found the Vega One all-in-one nutritional shakes! Seriously. So good. I love that their nutrition shake is plant-based and made from whole foods. It’s packed with…
- 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
- 15 grams of protein
- 6 grams of fiber
- 1.5 grams of Omega-3
- greens (yay for greens!)
That list is pretty impressive! The kind folks at Vega sent me a package with samples of all of their shake flavors, as well as their all-in-one nutrition bar. It’s basically their Vega One shake…in a bar. Truly one of a kind. 15 grams of protein, full serving of greens, and 1 billion dairy free probiotics. I was immediately drawn to the double chocolate. Pretty amazing and pretty tasty, if you ask me. I was also very eager to try the Vanilla Chai shake, since chai tea is one of my favorite drinks. Oh my, delicious! How will I ever choose a favorite?
After my first taste of a Vega One shake, I was hooked. I was amazed not only at the quality of ingredients, but the flavor was super tasty! I went and bought a big container of the French Vanilla nutritional shake and now have it every morning for breakfast. Sometimes I drink it on it’s own, simply mixed with water, and sometimes I change it up by adding it to my favorite smoothie recipe. A little spinach, fresh fruit, some coconut milk. Here is my Vega One green smoothie. Power-packed and my fuel for the day!
