I first heard about Vega during my training @ Whole Foods. Out of all the amazing nutrition options, Vega really stood out. Backed and formulated by Brendan Brazier (Professional Ironman Triathlete) – packed with natural, plant-based protein and being dairy/gluten/soy free ~ it’s an outstanding product.
“I formulated Vega using the highest quality, least processed, plant-based superfoods available. Armed with Vega, you will no longer need to compromise between whole food goodness and fast food convenience. To me, Vega is a way of life. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.” ~ Brendan Brazier
Let’s check out the Performance Protein. Here’s what you’ll find on the ingredient label:
In the VegaOne Nutritional Shakes, you’ll find plant proteins and impressive extras like: omegas, antioxidants, probiotics, greens, vitamins/minerals, maca, chlorella…and digestive enzymes.
NO, they didn’t leave anything out! I love the Nutritional Shakes because it’s your one-stop-shop. I am used to adding my maca and greens (live or powder) to my shakes. But, with this product ~ everything is literally already in there. These shakes tend to be a bit chalky so I do drink more of the Performance Protein.
I’ve been using the Performance Protein in my smoothie recipes for about two months now and I love it! Muscle repair is super important for me. I can tend to get achy pretty fast if I don’t replenish my system after a hard workout. This is especially true, after a Hot Yoga class. But, I also love to start my day with these smoothies because I feel full, nourished and energized till lunchtime.
Vega Performance Protein – Blueberry Smoothie:
- 1 cup of almond milk (or any other nondairy delight)
- Handful of ice
- 1 banana
- 1/2 c blueberries
- 1-2 handfuls of greens (kale, lettuce, spinach)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (my secret weapon ~ more on than in a future post!)
Slurp & enjoy!
Next up: I’d love to try their Recovery Accelerator!
Cheers to your beautiful health, inside and out.
