Morning! I was sleepy this morning after being in the commercial kitchen real late last night. I know I have the luxury of sleeping until whenever I want and for now, until baby comes, I’m doing it whenever I can. I know I’m lucky that I can sleep until 8, but trust me I make it up for it on the other end of the day.
You know I’m so passionate about healthy foods, which is clearly why I started my own health food/granola company. I love getting in my vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats and proteins. I’ve spoken to you to near death about it. Luckily, I crave these foods. but I do have days where I just am not in the mood to take down a salad for lunch. Or there are those days that I need something just SUPER convenient on the go.
Another thing you know already: I love Vega. I love their company, products, message, basically everything they stand for. Matter of fact I’m wearing my Vega t-shirt right now! They recently did some work rebranding and came out with their new line of shake and go smoothies. Since I LOVE them, I was so happy to try out this new line.
So here’s the deal with Vega Energizing Smoothie:
- It has 2 servings of veggies
- Dairy, gluten & soy free with no sugar added.
- It has 10g of complete protein, 5g fiber & 1g of omega 3′s
- Plant Based
- Comes in Bodacious Berry, Choc-a-lot, Oh Natural, Tropical Tango and Vanilla Almondilla
So I’ll be completely honest here and tell you I’m not a fruity protein powder person. I LOVED the choc-a-lot and Vanilla Almondilla. I added the vanilla almondilla to a smoothie, using almond milk and banana and just added water to the choc-a-lot. They were both perfect snacks. I added the bodacious berry to a fruit smoothie and liked it. I’d say it was my third favorite. I honestly haven’t tried the oh natural or tropical tango yet. I could see the oh natural being good added to a smoothie or even to protein pancakes since it just has vanilla flavor.
I get many questions from clients who want FAST snacks that are good, no very high in calories and will fill them up. I always recommend Vega protein powder and would absolutely recommend these. They are 90 calories per serving, so it easily fits into your day.
Disclaimer: Vega sent me these samples for review but all thoughts and opinions are my own!
I’m off to clean up this house, go for a run and get WORK done!
What’s your favorite quick and easy snack?
