Vega One Starter Kit GIVEAWAY!!

If you read my blog, you know that I'm a huge fan of Vega products. A major staple in my diet, I've been using Vega One (formerly Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer) for over two and half years in my morning smoothie. (Wow, that's a long time!) Starting my day with a healthy smoothie has really been my key to staying healthy and fit. You are much more likely to keep eating healthy all day long if you have a healthy breakfast. Plus, smoothies are easy on your digestive system in the morning.

Just because Vega products are plant-based, doesn't mean you have to be vegan to take them. Although I eat mostly plant-based, I am not vegan, and nor am I trying to be. I just strongly believe in the value of plenty of fruits and vegetables in a healthy diet (and doctors and dietitians don't disagree with me). Adding a Vega One smoothie to your daily diet will easily help you reach your recommended daily intake of fruits, veggies, and essential nutrients and vitamins.

If you're interested in trying to eat daily smoothies, starting on a plant-based diet, or simply want to try Vega One, then today is your lucky day! I'm giving away two Vega One Starter Kits to two of my readers! The starter kit includes five samples of the different Vega One flavors and recipes for smoothies. This is a great way to try the flavors before you purchase a tub. I also suggest that you try making a smoothie for 5 days straight and see how great you feel at the end of the week!

What is Vega One?

Formulated by Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega One is dairy, gluten and soy free, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It includes:

  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
  • 15g protein
  • 6 g fiber
  • 1.5g Omega-3
  • 3 servings of greens
  • Antioxidants
  • Probiotics

Berry Explosion Smoothie Recipe

I don't usually buy the berry flavor of Vega One, so I wanted to try this recipe from the starter kit, it is delicious! And looks really pretty...

1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 serving Vega One Berry
1 cup cold water
2-3 ice cubes
Blend until smooth!

  1. I like Lindt's dark, salted chocolate with a cup of coffee in the late afternoon for a little boost!

  2. Lynda@fitnessmomwinecountrySeptember 25, 2013 at 1:20 PM

    I love taking dark chocolate and dipping a piece into the jar of peanut butter...just small enough for a sweet treat :)

  3. I love raw cacao and avocado pudding!

  4. I love to eat dark chocolate straight!

  5. I love the idea of plant-based protein to fuel my body, but I struggled with the french vanilla so I am eager to try the other flavours!

  6. Favourite way to eat chocolate? Every way... Kind of addicted to chocolate-covered almonds, though :)

  7. I'm always looking for an edge!

  8. I'm vegetarian and training for my first marathon, so I'd love assurance that I'm getting all the nutrients I need.

  9. I'm an active vegan and I eat a lot of protein powder. Always looking for a great tasting one

  10. Training for my first marathon on a plant based diet. Would love to try!

  11. I've been a vegetarian for almost 6 years now! Always looking for new products that can better myself!

  12. I want to try Vega One because I am a vegetarian, and I always appreciate finding plant-based protein products that are actually tasty! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  13. I am a CrossFitter, and Vega would be great fuel!

  14. I love vega too but have only tried the chocolate protein powder, I'd like to try all the other flavors!!!

  15. I'm training for my second race (ever) right now and looking for better ways to fuel!

  16. I'd love to try all the flavours!

  17. I've been struggling with stomach problems (pain after eating) and am scared to eat before any workout because of the discomfort. However, after researching VEGA is seems as though the plant-based natural ingredients might be a way out of my painful past. I would love to try the 5 Day Starter Kit to see if this product works for my body. If so, then I could get into a comfortable routine knowing that I could depend of a source of fuel to keep me going during my workouts. I'D LOVE TO TRY THE STARTER KIT! #VEGA #VEGA #VEGA
