{FOOD} vega bars // a review of one of my favorite brands

happy monday, everybody! 
we have been home from our trip for a week now ; i am finally feeling settled & our day-by-day trip recaps will be up on the kindness blog throughout the week! 

lets talk about vega

i have been using this product, almost daily for the past 2.5+ years! 
every single morning, i throw in some frozen banana chunks, a scoop of chocolate vega one, a spoonful of flax & chia seeds, two scoops of peanut butter and almond milk & i have myself a filling, tasty, EASY breakfast! 

as a sweat pink ambassador, fit approach & vega gave me {and some other awesome bloggers} a chance to try out 8 new flavors of vega bars. {everything i say is my own opinion ; but you guys know that by now ;)}

i was given vega one bars {best as a 'meal' bar} // vega snack bars // vega sport protein bars {this was my FAVORITE} // vega sport energy bars

of all the flavors i tried, the vega one chocolate peanut butter meal bar and the vega sport chocolate mint protein bar were my favorites!

blake & i split a protein bar in the middle of a 30-mile bike ride {we ate other things before & after, too!} and we both really enjoyed the chocolate mint flavor. 
these bars didn't have that gross, waxy chocolate flavor // aftertaste the way that a lot of other bars do.

i didnt get any photos of the energy bars, but i ate them both after 60-min hot yoga sessions.

i love that vega is plant-based and vegan! i have been a fan of this company for a while & love that their line {and company} is growing and expanding! five years ago, when i cut meat & dairy out of my diet // lifestyle, i wish i had known of them right away! but, all is well that ends well... ;)

ps: they have a BOGO sale on all of their bars in their online shop right now! you can head here to check that out! 

tell us: do you eat protein // meal // snack recovery bars? 
do you have a favorite?
