This is not a sponsored post and it's also not a post to bash other products. But recently with trying to eat more clean and trying to find a way to help improve my protein and vitamins intake, eating a lot of food can be daunting and sometimes seems counter productive. So with lot's of research into various products there were a few that came up. The big one that has quite a following and also I just love these programs is the product called Shakeology from Beachbody. I would love to try it eventually but with the cost being 4$ per serving and reading some of the reviews with the taste I wasn't quite sure I want to flip the bill for $135 plus shipping quite yet.
After searching and searching I found a product that honestly has almost everything Shakeology does (please any of my beachbody coaching friends don't hate on me) just not all the superfoods they have in it, but it has quite the list of awesome healthy beneficial ingredients, The best part of this product is I can get it anywhere!! I got mine at Superstore and it was on sale for $54 and there are 19 servings per container. When I broke it down that meant per serving was $2.84 a serving, the product is called Vega One all in one nutritional shake. It is gluten free, gmo free, vegan friendly and is a plant based supplement. Per serving there is 20 grams of protein, 6 servings of greens, 50% of your daily vitamins and minerals, it is full of fibre, omega-3's, antioxidants, probiotics and is only 170 Calories. Plus I appreciated the fact that it only had 1 gram of sugar for the serving.
You can mix it up with cold water or any non dairy milk. I didn't like it that much with Coconut milk, but didn't mind it with just water, but I found I really liked it mixed in a blender with water and a banana. The taste has a bit of a bitter after taste but that's what happens when that many greens are crammed into one scoop. I have the chocolate flavor but there are a few other kinds, there is a natural flavor, Vanilla Chia, French Vanilla and a mixed Berry.
I have only been using it for a few days but I am excited to see if it helps after the 19 servings. I am only replacing one meal a day with it, either breakfast or lunch. So we will see but this is my honest review so far, I hope to do shakeology eventually but I was super pumped about finding this product as well! Here's to health!
