*Disclaimer: The following post is a review for Vega One Nutritional Shake. I was offered the opportunity to review Vega One nutritional shakes through my Sweat Pink ambassadorship and was given 1 free box of Vega One Nutritional Shake in French Vanilla to try out for the purpose of this review. I was not compensated in any other way and the opinions of this product are entirely my own. What you read today is my honest, unbiased opinion of the Vega One Nutritional Shake.
Breakfast nutrition is an area that I have struggled with on my running days and now that I am only 9 weeks away from Around the Bay it has become even more important that I should be fueling my body properly. Too much to eat and I am running with a bloated and uncomfortable belly looking for a tree to duck behind; skipping breakfast and I am bonking half-way through.
“You hit the ground running every morning, prepping, and planning for your day on the way out the door. Wilting at your desk by 10 AM, you kick yourself for missing breakfast. As you reach for your third cup of coffee to get you through, you wonder who the heck has time for breakfast when you’re already skimping on sleep to fit it all in.”
Vega One Nutritional Shake is #OneChange you can make to help you stride through your busiest schedule, knowing you’ve got your nutritional bases covered—quickly and deliciously. You can simply mix it in a smoothie or shake and go. The Vega #OneChange campaign is focused on making it easy and who doesn’t like easy? Whether you’re a Number Cruncher, Weekend Splurger, Serial Snacker, or Breakfast Skipper, Vega One can help. Smoothies are a great way for me to fuel without feeling bloated and give me the energy I need to finish my run.
Vega Vanilla Very-Berry Smoothie To Go
- 1 pack of Vega One French Vanilla
- 2/3 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 cup unsweetened Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup Almond milk
Blitz up in the blender, pour into your husband’s Rickard’s Red pint glass and drink up.
Pro’s for Me
- Convenient packaging for travelling or on the go; no need to measure out what is needed.
- Canadian based company located in Burnaby, BC.
- 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals.
Con’s for Me
- I found the texture gritty, even after blitzing it in the blender.
- 15g of protein – Runner’s need more protein than we are typically eating.
- Strong metallic after-taste from the stevia extract used as a sweetener.
- Cost – $35.99 (CA) for a box of 10 Single Packs.
While I enjoyed the convenience of the single packaging and the opportunity to review this product I will honestly say this is not a product I would buy for myself based on the cost alone. Our family budget just doesn’t allow for it at this time.
