It is not unusual for someone at a Chicago based Whole Foods, juicing business, wellness company or even a friend to refer to me as 'Hey, here comes the Vega Girl'. I feel like I should get t-shirts made - haha! I actually think they just might sell....and note they'd be pretty cute.
I've never really shared 'fully' why I am a self professed 'Vega Girl' though so, I thought it was timely given that Vega has recently deputed their NEW Vega One Formulation!!!!!!!! Wait until you here all of the healthy benefits of drinking Vega One! The reformulation is so incredible! Well, I won't make you wait at all....read on!
I was first drawn to Vega products after reading the Thrive book series by Brendan Brazier. I was very ill with POTS Syndrome and was seeking out information on plant based health. I knew based on Brendan's background as a world renown athlete which you can read about here, that this man operated from a place of deep knowledge of nutrition and integrity - a combination that I feel comfortable championing.
I initially knew nothing more about the products other than the fact that I thought the Vega One Nutritional Shakes tasted better than anything else I had tried on the market (I had tried about 12 others total which is a lot) and I was a gigantic Brendan Brazier fan.
And thus began my own education of plant based health & of Vega. My body started healing and I believe that drinking a Vega One Nutritional Shake every single morning (no fail) aided in flooding my body with alkalinity. And then I started to 'feel' better!!!!!
The more I learned, the more I talked about the company at wellness trade shows and expos such as The Green Festival in Chicago and then I began to talk to juicing businesses in Chicago. When I would go in to grab a green juice, I would encourage them to try Vega as their plant based 'nutrition on the go' option. And this grew into me getting to know the Vega Team themselves and a relationship grew. I definitely pursued Vega pretty aggressively because it's rare for me to love a product 'that much'! I have yet to find a company - and this is a bold statement - who has as much 'heart' behind what they do. So, it isn't just the REAL unprocessed whole foods plant based nutrition in every sip, it's also the people at Vega...the Vega Team. They exude warmth - care - true heart - integrity - transparency - good character. And they genuinely blow me away. So, the rest is history hence, I fell in love entirely!
Let's jump to this NEW Vega One Formulation & WHY it's - in my humble pie opinion - the absolute best choice on the market when choosing amongst the sea of plant based nutrition options! And if you really scour competitors ingredients....well, I'll just save you time and share...nothing on the market compares.
The New Vega One Formulation is made from REAL WHOLE FOODS INGREDIENTS (shall I repeat that - dwell on that for a few). REAL WHOLE FOODS INGREDIENTS! The following is what you get in ONE scoop of Vega One!

Vega One's New Formulation is literally EVERYTHING you need ALL-IN-ONE!!!
Someone asked me recently with a bit of snarky sarcasm, 'Why do you get so excited about a protein shake'? Right question to ask me because I literally broke out in this cheering like motivational speech about Vega (haha)!
