DSC03774 (393x400)If you’re looking for optimal health from a plant-based, whole food shake, look no further.  Vega One, a Canadian company that has a manufacturing plant in the northwestern US, may be just what you’re looking for. It’s got 15 g. of protein; enough probiotics in the mix to equal a cup of yogurt; nearly three servings of Omega 3s; as much “green” nourishment to equal three servings of vegetables; plus fiber, antioxidants…oh and did we mention just 150 calories?!  It’s a wonder powder, and it tastes great.

There are other “shake” powders on the market that are excellent, but none contain the fiber and green component of Vega One—it’s really that good!  Just blend a packet or a scoop into ice and water and you’ve got yourself energy for the entire day.  But if you want to gild the lily, add a frozen banana and a handful of blueberries—the calorie count won’t go up that much and the shake will stay with you till dinner time.

This shake has lots of fiber, enough for four servings of whole wheat bread.  One could safely throw out the morning vitamin pill by substituting Vega One, it’s that rich in essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fiber and phytonutrients.

Western culture has managed to solve none of the questions about obesity and malnourishment which have oddly existed simultaneously since the ‘40s. Enter diet drugs, fad diets, refined sugar and caffeine…well, you get the picture: a yo-yo on steroids. Up and down weight, over stimulated, stressed out beyond belief.  We’ve done a number on ourselves, but there’s hope out there yet. From the Vega One website: “Studies have shown a linkage between an alkaline-forming diet and accelerated growth, development and metabolism, helping to provide a platform upon which optimal health can be built.”  And our founder and CEO at GreenAcres always reiterates: “There’s no cancer found in an alkaline body.”

We sell Vega One in all eight of our GreenAcres stores. Each tub of our Vega Protein & Greens powders in vanilla and chocolate contains:

  • 20 grams of complete protein from a multisource plant-based blend
  • 2 servings of veggies via Vega’s signature greens blend: kale, spinach, broccoli and alfalfa
  • Only 110 calories, no added sugar

Vega Protein & Greens are Non-GMO; vegan, gluten-free and made without dairy, soy and artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.

DSC03773 (400x300)Since its debuted, the Vega company has added a sport line, which is on sale this month (20% OFF MSRP), and “quick-fix” protein bars fly off our shelves.

We invite you to try one of the small packets of Vega One before you buy the big tubs. See if you don’t like the way it tastes, and love the way you feel.

Balance–it’s all in the balance, and Vega One keeps tweaking its product line to get that perfect balance of nutrients to energy. “Drink your fruits and vegetables” should be the company mantra.  Not a bad way to start the day!
