When you think performance boosting protein powder, plant-based deliciousness isn't typically what comes to mind. It's more so one of those giant barrels of whey protein powder with a topless, insanely muscular man in the midst of a Hulk power stance on it. Aside from the appetite suppressing packaging, what's more is you'll be hard pressed to find protein powder that isn't full of sugar or doesn't contain a long list of chemical additives you can't pronounce. Not exactly ideal when you're looking for something to fuel your body after a killer workout or a boost to add to your morning smoothie. Vega Sport is the outlier and I'm giving a pack of 12 individual servings away to one lucky reader ($50 value)!
How much protein is actually in it?
Each serving of Vega Sport has 30 grams of complete protein, containing all 9 amino acids, which is equivalent to the amino acid profile of whey protein powder.
What is it made of?
Alfalfa, pumpkin, sunflower seed and pea protein. It also contains 5,000 mg of glutamine, which helps repair muscles after exercise, plus turmeric and probiotics.
How does it taste, really?
It's absolutely delicious. I used to hate drinking protein powder, and now it's my reward for completing my workout, it's that good.
Do I have to drink it after exercising?
No. It's made with recovery in mind, but I have it sometimes in place of breakfast, on it's own or in a smoothie, or as a snack for those days you're really hungry and just want some extra protein.
What do I mix it with?
You can mix it with water, non-dairy milk, or throw it in a smoothie. If you want to get creative, it's also delicious in pancakes and muffins.
What are the nutritional facts?
It's 150 calories, 30 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar and 4 grams of carbs.
How do you like the individual serving packs compared to the larger containers?
The large containers are great for storing at your home, but I prefer the individual serving packs because I can throw them in my gym bag to enjoy right after my workout, or have them on hand for an on-the-go snack.
