As a fitness fanatic and nutrition nut, it might be surprising that my kitchen cupboards aren’t regularly stocked with protein powder and supplements. I don’t have a blender bottle in my gym bag either… probably because I don’t have a gym bag — gasp.
Who knows how many protein and pre and post-workout powders are out of there on the market — a gazillion dollars worth is all I know, and a lot of them a filled with synthetic crap.
That said, I see the place and purpose for supplementation if the supplements aren’t doing more harm (with chemical binders and steroids) than good.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like I need a little more protein in my diet. Vega Sport recently sent me their performance protein to try out. Once I read its nutritionals, I was down to give this plant-based powder a try.
With 25 grams of protein per serving, featuring 5,000mg of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and 5,000mg of gluatamine, this product is sure to #fuelyourbetter in that all natural way I support.
Vega Sport Performance Protein is plant-based, dairy, gluten and soy free and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
I want to like this product – I do like it – but I can’t get my tastebuds to cooperate with my philosophy. I know Vega can help me #fuelmybetter after hot summer runs and high-intensity strength workouts, so I need your help — how do you consume protein powder? The mix-with-water thing — I can’t do it. Are smoothies the answer?
One reader will win 6 packets of Vega Sport Performance Protein (chocolate flavor).
