I want to start off by saying this is not a sponsored post, this is a “I found a really amazing product that I just had to talk about”, post.
I heard of the company Vega from a few of my friends. They talked about how great it tasted and the benefits from drinking it daily. So I decided to try them out. My plan was to try the chocolate but the store was all sold out so I went with their Vega One– Natural. I was excited to read the top label and see all the nutrients one serving held.
I’ve really wanted to find a shake that would not only give me the protein I needed but also the vitamins I needed. Vega One contains 15g of protein, 6g fiber, 1.5g omega-3, 3 servings of greens, 2.7 cups of antioxidants, 1 billion probiotics and 50% RDI of vitamins/minerals. That’s a lot of nutrients in one shake.
For my shake I added 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries, 2 TBSP natural peanut butter and 1 banana, all added to the scoop of Vega One. This tasted amazing. I was worried about the Vega One being natural that it would taste grassy or bland, but it was so tasty. We did try the chocolate later and didn’t like it as much, I think I need to figure out what would taste great with it and then we could have more variety of flavors. I noticed the other day they have some amazing recipe ideas, I plan on checking them out soon.
I try to drink one shake a day. On the days I do have a shake I notice my energy level is up and I feel fuller longer. On the days I miss my shake I tend to feel sluggish and want to snack more often. Therefore I try very hard to get a shake in a day.
If you’re looking for an easy and quick breakfast in the morning I would totally recommend Vega One. You can even use a shaker cup and mix it with your favorite milk, or milk alternative. If you have Vega One on hand, you’re less likely to come up with the excuse to not eat breakfast, it’s simple, quick and so good.
