This morning I was racing to my day job and didn’t have time to make my usual protein shake. I grabbed some fruit and while racing out the door also grabbed from my stack of bars a Vega One all-in-one nutrition bar.
I have previously posted my detest of bars, but I didn’t hesitate excited to try the Double Chocolate and assuming it would taste as delicious as the others, and of course, it did!
The bars are vegan which is great news for many of my friends. I ate the bar during my first meeting this morning and shared with my coworker who is gluten free – so is the bar. At first she was taken back by the 250 calories, but then was totally shocked by the 15grams of protein. For me, I’m willing to add on those little extra calories for all that extra protein.
Like all Vega products, the Vega One Nutrition Bar is clean, plant-based nutrition. It also contains 6 grams of fiber, and 1.5 grams of Omega-3. It is designed by Vega founder and triathlete Brendan Brazier, to cover the key nutrient bases with “its balanced combination of essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, a full serving of greens, plus 1 billion dairy-free probiotics per bar.” And while that all sounds great, what I know for fact is that it tastes delicious! A perfect morning grab on the go! (… and it got me to work on time – phew!)
