Earlier this year we discovered that Anson can’t use whey protein or else his skin breaks out horribly and becomes quite painful. We started searching for other alternatives and soon found out that most plant based products taste, well, like a plant! I have used Vega products in the past and assured him that they taste delicious and not like you’re eating the lawn! After trying them he definitely agreed with me.
We both love Vega, so I was thrilled to be invited to attend an early morning workout session put on by Vega last Friday! I got up at 4:15 AM to get ready in order to catch the train to get to the event at The Addisons Residence by 6:30.
Upon check in we were given a tank top to wear which I love! The green colour is gorgeous so I was pretty pumped:)
We changed, checked our bags and headed outside to the most beautiful courtyard you can imagine to begin our short yoga session! (can you find me?!)
I want to live here! Can someone buy this place for me?!
After a brief yoga session that had me sweating, we were led in a HIIT type workout by Strive Life owners, Martin Reader and Ryan Caicco. I am pretty sure they cut the workout they had planned in half but I was pretty grateful! It didn’t take me too many squats and lunges to remember how long it’s been since I did anything other than run. Eek!
After our workout we were able to sample some of Vega’s products!
Hands down, Vega makes the best protein bars out there. I’ve tried so many brands and nothing compares to Vega. They’re actually delicious and not dry like so many other protein bars!
We also were able to try a variety of smoothies in the most adorable little cups! I loved the mocha one which combined my love of coffee and chocolate in the same cup:)
The event closed with some singing, trumpet playing and confetti throwing!
You would never have known it was 8 AM! We left with smiles on our faces knowing we had started our day in the best possible way. Thank you, Vega, for the fantastic event but more importantly, for providing clean fuel for my family and me!
