Vega Protein Bars with Snack, Meal, and Sport Options

2

Former professional Ironman triathlete, Brendan Brazier, doesn’t mess around when it comes to making functional food. Since launching his plant-based company, Vega, so many years ago, he has dramatically influenced the world of vegan nutrition. His plight began with a nutritional shake (now known as Vega One), but his product line now includes other protein and smoothie blends, plus this all-inclusive line of Vega Protein Bars.

Covering three common food-on-the-go needs, the Vega Protein Bars include Snack (the lightest of the three), 20g Protein (hefty meal bar), and Sport Protein (also hefty, but formulated for post-workout). I’m including them all in one post because they’re all Vega Protein Bars, and Vega constantly changes their bar line up! It’s easier to keep updated with one post than multiple.

I tried the chocolate peanut butter and the blueberry oat snack bars and they are excellent! Better than any I have tried and I’ve tried most of them! Yummy!

  2. I have used Vega One for a year now! I love it. But recently a pal gave me a Vega Snack Bar – the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup flavour. Oh my!! it was a perfect afternoon snack. As we were going to go out for a run in about an hour. It was crunchy and peanuty and satisfied a hunger pang and a sweet tooth, but without being junky! LOVE it! I can’t wait to try more flavours.
