Disclosure: I was provided with samples of Vega Sport Sugar-Gree Energizer in exchange for my honest opinions about the products. All opinions are my own.
A little over a month ago, I was getting ready for our long vacation to Australia. Around the same time, my favorite sports nutrition company launched a new product. That means I had to wait a little longer than I wanted to try it, but so far I think it was worth the wait!
Why a new energizer?
For me, I am trying to limit the amount of sugar in my diet (focusing on eating clean), so I was excited from the moment it was announced. Others may wonder why they created a new sugar-free version. And only 5 calories!!
In Vega’s own words, here’s why they created it:
· Provide a natural Vega Energizer that is low in calories
· Intended for medium intensity or 60 minute duration workouts where additional calories or carbohydrates are
· Perfect fit for yoga, barre fitness, Pilates, or HIIT (high intensity interval training) which is typically less than 60
minutes in duration.
· Healthier alternative to coffee. Many of our consumers use Vega Energizer instead of coffee, during their day.
The sugar-free now gives them a closer option, relative to the calorie consumption.
I’ve been using this before my interval runs as part of LiveFit Trainer and it really seems to make a difference! I feel like I have more energy from the beginning, instead of taking a bit of time to get into the groove.
And check out these ingredients. This is the kind of natural, plant-based nutrition that I love (and expect) from Vega:
Instead of strange sugar-free sweeteners, this is made with easy-to-digest Stevia. I’ve become a huge fan of stevia over the past few months, so I was happy to see that this is what they chose to balance the flavors.
Not surprising, my favorite flavor is Acai Berry. I’m just not a big fan of Lemon Lime (reminds me too much of the drinks you get on most race courses). The berry flavors are almost always my favorite with any sports nutrition.
And now I’m excited to get to share some Vega Sport Sugar-Free Energizer with a few of you! I’m teaming up with Vega to give 2 boxes of the energizer to 2 lucky winners. Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.
