Review: Vega One Bars

You know that I'm a big fan of Vega products so I was really excited to try the new Vega One Bars. They are basically the Vega One nutritional shake put into a bar form to make nutrition easy on the go. I tried all three flavors and was impressed with the taste and the results. The double chocolate flavor is my favorite because it tastes like a chocolate candy bar. I received the samples right before I left on a work trip so I took them with me and I was so happy to have a meal replacement bar when the meals provided at the conference were inadequate for my healthy diet. I pretty much ate a bar for breakfast everyday and even one for lunch. I felt satisfied both physically and mentally knowing that I was getting the right nutrition.

Since I first received the sample pack in April, I've bought two more boxes on Amazon and the bars have become a part of my daily life. They are excellent for travel but also great when I don't have time to make my morning shake or just need to eat something on the go. The bars are also a good option if you don't like making nutrition shakes for breakfast or post-workout. And I'm not kidding about the taste! These are the best nutrition/protein/energy bars I have ever had!

If you're not familiar with Vega products, here is the low-down. All Vega products are plant-based (vegan) and free of common allergens like wheat/gluten, corn, soy, and dairy. Featuring 15 grams of complete protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 1.5 grams of Omega-3, Vega One bars help cover your key nutrient bases with a unique, balanced combination of essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, a full serving of greens, and probiotics. The bar really is the ultimate meal and should be used as a meal replacement since each bar is 250 calories. The bars are pricey at $3.99 each, but cheaper on Amazon at about $42 for a box of 12. The price is worth it because the bar is true meal replacement and investing in your health is a good idea and will pay off later.

This post is not sponsored by Vega but they did send me three sample bars in return for writing a review on my blog. All  opinions are my own.

Do you use nutrition/protein/energy bars as meal replacements?

Have you tried the Vega One bar yet?
