Over the last year or so I have been finding out, in not so fun ways, how sensitive I am to different foods. But one good or rather great thing that has come from that has been in the introduction to so many new, healthy and delicious items!Vega One is one such item. When I kept getting sick from anything I ate everyone kept suggesting smoothies, protein shakes, etc. However many of them kept getting me sick or were the epitome of nasty in taste. I was at the Whole Foods an hour from me (why can't we have more of them in NC???) and saw this one sample of Vega One. I asked the employees, researched on my phone while I was there and then bought it. It was a French Vanilla powder and blew my mind!
Since then I have bought the large container of the French Vanilla and the Chocolate and am loving them! Either plain with water, with cashew or almond milk, with peanut butter and or banana, with pb2, etc. the possibilities are endless. What I also enjoy is that if you go to the company website here, they provide recipe suggestions, lifestyle information, health tidbits, etc. Not only does Vega One taste good, it also is stacked full of goodness for our bodies. For example: Vega One gives you:
- 20 grams premium plant-based protein
- 6 servings of greens
- 50% daily intake of food-based vitamins and minerals
- 25% DV fiber
- 1.5 grams of Omega-3s
- Probiotics (1 billion CFU)
- Only 160 calories. (French Vanilla)
Have y'all tried the other flavors? Or any of the recipes to create anything besides smoothie, shake, pancake? If so please let me know!
