#SDMomBirthdayGIVEAWAY Prize 7: @VegaTeam #Giveaway #FuelYourBetter

Welcome to the SD Mom Birthday Giveaway where I give YOU presents for MY birthday!



Yay! So far, we have a ProCompression giveawaySkratch energy drops giveawayHeadsweats giveawayHoney Stingers waffles giveawayViewSport giveaway, a SPANDITS giveaway and now, a Vega Giveaway!  I have written about Vega a lot.  You can read all my posts here.


They are letting me giveaway a Half Marathon package to a lucky and I mean LUCKY winner!  ($185 value)  It will include: 
  • 1 Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer Tub - Acai Berry
  • 1 Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator - Berry Tub
  • 1 Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator -Tropical Tub
  • 1 Vega Sport Performance Protein - Vanilla Tub
Let me tell you a little about each item and how I use it.  I use the pre-workout energizer about 20-30 minutes before a hard workout.  It gives me a caffeine and energy boost without upsetting my stomach.  


Full Disclosure: I have never used the Electrolyte Hydrator but I am sure like all their products, it is amazing.  Now the Recovery Accelerator is truly special.  It has a 4:1 carb protein ratio that is so important in recovery.  



And finally, the vanilla protein.  I drink this EVERY SINGLE MORNING!  Some version of it.  I alternate between the Performance protein, Vega One and Vega Greens and Protein (they sell this at Costco).


These are my standard smoothie ingredients.  Sometimes I mix it up with some frozen cherries but what you see is my basic ingredient list!

Vega is so much more than vegan plant based protein.  They are truly interested in helping you become a better runner.  A stronger runner.  They have training and nutrition plans here.  They have recipes too.  Like this one for Coconut Chocolate Quinoa Pudding!


And to go with their whole #FuelYourBetter plan, they have a fueling and running plan you can check out here!  


I am a HUGE fan of Vega and will always have a Vega smoothie for breakfast.  I always have a Vega Pre Workout Energizer before a long run and the Recovery Accelerator after a long hard run.  You know whatever they are doing to #FuelYourBetter, they are doing it right!  OOH and my favorite resource for Vega recipes?  Robin at Knead to Cook.  Her recipes are as awesome as she is!  So, you want to win the Half Marathon package?  Enter on the Rafflecopter!
