Vega Sport Vanilla Protein Powder Review

February 7, 2012 · 6 comments

Yesterday, I did not feel like blogging. I had a disappointment hangover from a certain even that played out on National television from Indianapolis. Moving forward…

I used Random.org to select a winner last night for the Polar FT60 Heart Rate Monitor. Congrats to Brittany for winning!

I was so happy to see all positive comments left by everyone. When people tell me they think the TIU price tag is too high, I try to tell them how much value there really is. It’s like a lifetime membership to Weight Watchers, but you don’t have to pay each month. It’s a one time purchase that is always being renewed, and updated. Get excited for a big update coming later this year! Yes, I have sources. ;)

This morning, I woke up early and went for my TIU Booty Call. It’s hilarious at the reactions I get on Twitter when I announce I’ve completed an interval booty call, lol.

Afterwards, I made myself a fluffy Protein Pancake made with Vanilla flavored Vega Sport Protein. The only changes I make with the Vegan protein powder is that I add a tablespoon of almond milk. Vega Protein Powder is gluten-free, soy free and dairy free! However, when I add my eggs for this recipe it no longer is vegan. Sorry.

As promised, I’m uploading a new video to my YouTube channel each weekday for the month of February. I took yesterday off so already, I have broken my promise. Today’s video features my newest obsession, Vega Sport.

With my recent increase in strength training and speed work, I’m really intrigued to add protein powder into my diet. Definitely want to give this a try — thanks for the review!!

Do you ever drink protein powder plain with water… or in anything besides your ‘cakes? :)

Sometimes but usually if I do, I’ll add a splash of almond milk or a few pieces of fruit and ice. I have it sometimes with 1/2 a frozen banana and almond milk and make a soft serve ice cream – so good! I do drink smoothies fairly regularly.

I’ve been wanting to try Vega powder, thanks for the review! Have you tried “flax eggs” in pancakes? They work great as a replacement binder. Just mix 1 Tablespoon ground flax with 3 Tablespoons warm water and let it sit for a few minutes to become like a gel. Then use just like an egg in baked goods!
