Hi Everyone! I am so excited to be talking to you today about the Vega Sport #FuelYourBetter campaign for 2014. I was given this opportunity as a SweatPink Ambassador to sample a part of this line for free and review it on this blog. All opinions are my own. Also note I was not compensated for this review.
We are talking about how you fuel yourself through training. Whether is’s a hard run uphill, a sweaty intense workout or a vertical hike- Vega Sport wants to fuel it.
Vega Sport: a clean, plant-based, natural, and Informed Choice certified way to fuel your workouts. The three-stage Vega Sport Nutrition System is specifically developed to help athletes perform at their best—before, during, and after training and competition. You can go to their website to personalize your program based on gender, type of activity and intensity/duration of your workout. How cool is that?
Let me tell you how excited I was to be given this opportunity to try this product! This was my first time using a protein powder. I can not have dairy products so having this chance to try a plant based protein made me feel like part of the cool kids. Their products are dairy, gluten & soy free, no sugar added. Perfect for me since I do not like added sugar either. I had picked part of their recovery line to try because I always run after work so I figured it would help hold me over before I am done cooking dinner or just have a shake in place of my dinner. Here are a few ways I like to drink it:
With almond milk, blueberries, strawberries and frozen pineapple~ YUM!
I was pleased with the taste. There was a little after taste at first but nothing chemical tasting. After the first sip or two, I did not notice it. I would recommend mixing with a blender because it does make the drink thick. I did have a little clumpage on the side of my blender. However, it blended into the drink well. Stirring by hand was a chore and left the hemp milk clumpy…
Best of all – My belly liked it too! I did not have any digestion issues and was not bloated after drinking it which would happen with any whey proteins.
Overall, I am very happy with this product. I would like to try the chocolate flavor too. I would make my own Chunky Monkey flavor shake. The possibilities are endless!
Do you have a favorite way to fuel your workout or recovery?
Thank you Vega Sport and Sweat Pink for this opportunity.
