Healthy for Summer with Vega Protein and Greens
Rumor has it, it's spring. Obviously, since I've been watching it snow off and on all day, I know that rumor is clearly a lie. Mother Nature! what happened????
I guess the one good thing about our delay in warm weather is that it gives us a little bit more time to work on our warm-weather bodies. While we all know that includes working out, the other half of the equation is healthy, sensible eating. And if you're looking for a way to up your nutrition game, look no further than Vega Protein and Greens.
The plant-based protein powder mixes easily with cold water, or blended into your favorite smoothie, and contains 20g of protein, 2 servings of greens and only 110 calories (without a bit of sugar added)! A Medium sized container (also available in Smalll or Large) retails for $39.99 and flavors include, among others, Vanilla, Chocolate and Berry.
I had the privilege of trying the chocolate flavor and I can tell you all, I cannot believe how filling it is! Thanks protein!! It's not the same kind of flavor you might anticipate but tasty none-the-less. I LOVED it in my normal smoothie recipe, and although Vega recommends the dairy-free route, I did add a little bit of yogurt.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend (and that you're reading this from someplace warm and sunny)!
