Lost is over [tear]
I found that I couldn’t express my love for that show with words so I’ll just have to move on and not blog about the finale…but seriously Closure, where was the closure!!
Anyways, besides being a Lostie, I’m also trying to get back into decent shape because my marathon training begins in a few short weeks. I’ve been experimenting with protein powders because I know I’m a person who doesn’t get enough protein on top of the fact that I exercise a lot. Whole Foods carries a large variety of powders so I randomly chose a couple different ones that came in a one time trial pouch without knowing anything about them.
Flavor: like licking a sidewalk.
Affects: didn’t feel any different during the day after consuming.
What’s inside: 23g of protein from various forms, not much else.
Would I buy this again: Do I look stupid? This tasted really bad. You couldn’t pay me.
Price: $2.99 for 1 packet.
Vega Complete Whole Food Health Optimizer
Flavor: like chocolately dirt.
Affects: felt pretty darn good after consuming, and the next day felt much less sore than normal.
What’s inside: 11g protein and 45% of almost all the vitamins in the world, vegan of course.
Use: supplement and/or meal replacement
What I didn’t know what I bought this: “Formulated by Brendan Brazier, vegan, professional Ironman triathlete and best-selling author on performance nutrition, Vega is made exclusively from natural plant-based whole foods.”
Would I buy this again: Yes, if I just added a banana or a tsp. of almond butter or something the flavor would have been easily improved.
Price: $3.49 for 1 packet.
While I know that supplements shouldn’t be needed by someone who eats a wide variety of healthy foods, I really do struggle with fueling properly. Now I just need to commit to actually using it, and that might be the harder part.
