Vega Review

I’m a pretty active gal. I like to workout, ride my bikes, go for walks, etc. As you know, I eat a fully plant based diet, meaning no meat, fish, dairy, or eggs. Most people ask me how I get certain nutrients like protein and calcium. “Well that’s easy,” I tell them. “I get it from the ground!” Yes, believe it or not, we 100% can get ALL the nutrients we need from plant based foods.

Most people that live an active lifestyle like to take supplements and protein powders in their smoothies. They even enjoy a good sports energy bar once in a while. Most of these things are good, BUT they often contain whey and other dairy ingredients. I never knew a protein powder or power bar could be SO good and SO healthy, AND be made out of plant based ingredients. Well, it’s true folks. Let me introduce you to VEGA: a company that creates everything you need for a healthy lifestyle, all made from plants.

Trevor from Team Vega was so kind and sent me a huge box full of goodies. This is what I received.

IMG_4143Amazing right? I got 2 boxes of nutritional shakes: vanilla and chocolate. And 12 delicious power bars in the following flavours:

  • Chocolate Coconut Cashew
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup
  • Dark Chocolate Mixed Nuts

The bars are DELICIOUS. I even got my dad hooked on them and now he wants MORE. The Chocolate Peanut Butter is my absolute favourite. It tastes so sweet and delicious, you wouldn’t even know it’s healthy. BUT it’s packed with …

  • 12 g complete plant-based protein
  • 4 g fiber
  • 1 g Omega-3
  • 1 serving of greens
  • 1 billion dairy-free probiotics
  • 25 added vitamins and minerals
  • Antioxidants

The bars even have a little photo on the side that tells you what it’s equivalent to. Example: (individually, not all these things in one meal) 2.1 slices of whole wheat bread, 1 cup of yogurt, 2 servings of salmon, 1.4 cups of blueberries, and is made from 1 serving of vegetables.

The bars are great to eat at home, or even better, on the go! I find that when I’m in a hurry or rushing out the door, I have nothing to eat. But now with these bars, I just grab one, head out the door, and I’m good! I even take them to work with me to eat with my dinner or as a snack and they’re awesome.
