I was recently asked to try and review the new Plant-Based Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake.
Vega was founded by a professional ironman triathlete named Brendan Brazier. He is a vegan and eats a strict plant-based nutrition diet and the Vega line of products follow those same principles.
What I like about this protein powder is that it has so many other good things in it besides protein like fiber, omega 3, greens, probiotics, and antioxidants. Take a look at the breakdown:
The quest for better is woven into Vega’s DNA. They have always put the best into Vega One, so you’ll get the best out. And because they know today’s best is better than three-years-ago’s best, Vega will never settle for good enough. Vega One’s label and recipe may change, but the secret ingredient behind everything you love about Vega is the same: permission to be better, one small change at a time.
Some of my favorite things about the new Vega One formulation are:
EVERY INGREDIENT MADE FROM REAL, WHOLE FOODS. Not having time to make something shouldn’t mean sacrificing nutrition. Made from real, whole plant-based ingredients—like fruits, vegetables, greens, and seeds— new Vega One has the whole food goodness you’d choose if you made it yourself. Now you can read the Nutrition Facts panel and ingredients list without having to look anything up in a chemistry text book.
FEELING YOUR BEST TASTES BETTER THAN EVER. There’s no point in filling each scoop with even more nutrition if it tastes terrible. Easy-to-make Vega One is sweetened only with stevia, and available in French Vanilla, Chocolate, Berry, Natural, and Vanilla Chai flavors. And speaking of stevia, if you’re not a fan, go with Natural, French Vanilla, or Vanilla Chai (they’ve got less stevia). Better yet, squeeze half a lemon into your shake or smoothie to take the edge off the stevia taste.
Other improvements include:
- 75% NORTH AMERICAN INGREDIENTS.
- MORE ORGANIC INGREDIENTS.
- NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFIED.
- 50% DV VITAMINS AND MINERALS, NOW WITH A RAINBOW UPGRADE.
- MORE PROTEIN, MORE GREENS
Vega One will be available in stores January 2015!
Disclosure: Vega provided me with a free sample of Vega One to review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
