When I was asked if I wanted to try Vega Sport I was a little skeptical since I am not vegan, which certainly is not a requirement for using or trying it.
I loved the box it came in, it had motivating quotes on it .
The Vega Sport performance system is 100% plant-based, free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners.
I like that there are no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. I don't care one way or the other about the dairy, gluten and soy free part since I have no allergies, but I know there are those that do.
They also have a great page on nutrition and training on there website HERE
It is broke down into three systems. 1. Prepare 2. Sustain and 3. Recover. If you need help deciding what to use when and for what type of exercise they have a cool chart HERE
that helps you decide.
My favorite thing:
The protein bars were by far away I thought the best things in the box. I love both the chocolate saviseed and the chocolate coconut flavors. So did my kids. I think that tells you how good they are. My kids don't usually think protein bars are good.
I was also a fan of the electrolyte hydrator. I loved the lemon lime flavor. The Pom-berry was a little too sweet for me to drink while running. Maybe I am just to used to the subtle flavors of Nuun.
The Endurance gel, I was not a fan of. I thought it had a funny texture and gave me burps. The flavors were good, but the texture did me in. I had to gag it down with water. It did help give me lots of energy though.
The Recovery Accelerator was also good. Not great in my opinion, I had the berry according to the directions and put the tropical in a shake. I thought it was yummy with frozen peaches and milk..which made it unvegan, but good.
The Performance protein..the chocolate was good, vanilla okay and the berry was not my favorite. I had to drink it fast and keep shaking it up or it would separate out and the top layer tastes really bad.
They also have endurance bars that I would rate as a B+, for flavor and texture. The mocha flavor was my favorite but I wasn't such a fan of the Acai berry.
I think overall they have great products that do what they are supposed to do..give you energy and nutrition to get you through your workouts and recover from them. My issue was more with the textures and flavors. I would buy the protein bars, electrolyte hydrator in lemon lime and the protein powder in chocolate.
