Vega Bars Review & Giveaway

I’ve been a fan of Vega since transitioned to a plant-based diet and began drinking the Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake almost every day, either for breakfast or post-run. One scoop is light on calories yet contains loads of protein, fiber, probiotics, greens, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and so many vitamins that I’ve given up my daily multivitamin supplement.

So when the good folks at Vega and Fit Approach sent me a few samples of the new Vega Bars, I was elated to try a new product from a company that already has my loyalty on my dime. On a recent road trip, I ate the Chocolate Cherry Almond Vega One All-In-One Meal Bar breakfast. The Cherry Almond Vega Snack Bar was a perfect fit between meetings on a busy work day. The Chocolate Coconut Vega Sport Protein Bar disappeared after a run.

Vega products fit the plant-based lifestyle of vegans and vegetarians because they are made without animal products, but they are offer 25 vitamins and minerals that carnivores need too. In addition, the bars are free of gluten and genetically modified ingredients and sweetened with organic, minimally refined sweeteners like agave and tapioca syrup.

These bars make a great breakfast, snack or dessert. My favorite bar was Chocolate Peanut Butter probably because the Vega One All-In-One Meal Bars are so much like the smoothies I’ve been drinking for five months. One bar has more protein than two eggs, more fiber than two slices of whole wheat bread, a serving of vegetables, as many probiotics as a cup of yogurt, as many omega-3’s as two servings of salmon and as many antioxidants as 1.4 cups of blueberries. That’s some good stuff. The Vega Sport bars have 15 grams of protein to help repair sore and tired muscles. And since many of the bars come in flavors covered in chocolate, they’ve eliminated the need for me to ever leave my office in search of a vending machine ever again.
