Score one for the design people, this box is awesome.
But it got even better when I pulled off the top and products literally exploded all over my counter.
There were gels, protein powders, energy bars and several other goodies I was excited to try.
The first thing I tried was one of the post-workout protein powders. The directions said mix the powder with a glass of cold water.
I very carefully measured out the exact amount of water called for, dumped in the tropical flavored powder and mixed it like crazy.
Nothing grosses me out more than drinking a gritty protein shake. I can't stand the feeling of powder flecks running across my teeth.
But luckily, the Vega powder dissolved really well in the water. And my favorite part was that it didn't taste overly chemically or leave a bad after-taste like some protein shakes tend to do.
I was really happy with the taste and thought the shake did a nice job taking the edge off my post-workout hunger.
While I'm certainly not a vegan (I'm not even a full-time vegetarian) I think the Vega products offer some great options for workout nutrition whether you're a meat-eater or not.
