Well, well, well, Happy Saturday! I am just popping in real quick to share with you something new and delicious! No, I am surprisingly not talking weekend pancakes, although that is what I made for breakfast this morning. If I don’t get my pancakes (or waffles) on the weekend…I just, I don’t know, I can’t even think about that horror! Sometimes when I wake-up though, I dread having to do the whole process of making them. But I crave them, so I suck it up and once I start measuring out that flour, all dread goes away and I know amazing things will be happening very shortly. It is really quite cathartic and relaxing to make a nice, more involved breakfast on the weekends. I can take my time and try new things, play around, enjoy the very early hours and sunrise, take some delicious pictures of my creations, and then dig in to the goodness. I just realized I could go on for days talking about pancakes…I’ll stop though, unless you want to have a pancake date with me? 😉
So you know what else is pretty delicious? The new reformulated #Vegabars from Vega! You know I have been adding in protein bars and the like to get in an extra dose of calories and fuel. Well I was so glad I got to try these bars! They are all non-gmo, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, plant-based, and have nothing artificial! I love finding bars that fit all these categorizes! That means I can eat them 🙂 There are 4 types of #VegaBars and each one has a specific purpose.
First we have the #VegaOneBar:
This bar is perfect for when you need a quick breakfast on the go! It is a complete meal…in a bar! It is a nutrition packed power house to fuel you all day with its superfood ingredients and 12g of plant-based protein!
Second is the #VegaSportEnergyBar:
The perfect bar to fuel your workout! 27g of carbs to give your muscles the whole food energy they need to power through those tough workouts!
Third is the #VegaSportProteinBar:
This guy is for after you workout! Post-workout recovery fuel at its finest! 15g of plant-based protein, 2.5g of BCCAs, and 2g of glutamine for optimal muscle recovery. I loved the flavor of the chocolate mint! It was a but to “candy bar” for me, but chocolate and mint it a great combo, just a bit to rich!
And finally, my favorite, the #VeganSnackBar:
So this was the perfect bar for me! It has exactly what I was looking for and tasted so good! I received the Dark Chocolate Mixed Nuts & Sea Salt bar as well as the Cranberry Almond. You know I dove in to the dark chocolate one first. And my goodness. It was amazing! It was one of those foods that really surprises you. It looked like a normal gluten filled non-vegan unhealthy snack bar when I opened it…but no. It was so much more! It was amazing that it could taste so good and meet all my requirements! Full of superfoods, nutrition, and deliciousness. This one totally my favorite one of the whole bunch. Now I just need to get my grocery store to start selling Vega products ASAP!
Just admire the goodness! I really need to get more of these! They were perfectly sweet too! Not too much, which I can’t handle, just the perfect amount that didn’t leave me feeling sick and sweeted-out like most bars do.
So tell me:
+ Have you ever tried any of the #VegaBars?
+ Do you have a sensitive sweet tooth like me or do you love all the sugar? I can’t handle sweet stuff. It makes me feel really sick afterwards. I like things slightly sweet, but it can’t be too much. Like my pancakes! They are “sweet” in a sense, but not “sugary-sweet”, haha hard to explain 😉
Have a great weekend and I will see you all back here on Monday for my Celiac Awareness Challenge! Get pumped!
***I received these awesome bars as part of my ambassadorship with Fitapproach. Vega sent me 8 bars for my honest review. All options and thoughts are my own. Thank you so much to Vega and Fitapproach for the opportunity!***
