As a nutritionist, personal trainer and health coach, I created the Clean & Colorful Concept to give you a pretty simple, yet solid foundation for how to fuel your body for health and your life for happiness. You may recall, it looks like this:

  1. Eat Less Processed Food.
  2. Eat all 5 Colors Everyday.
  3. Swap one Snack or Meal per day with a Juice or Smoothie.
  4. Exercise at least 21-Minutes a Day 6 Days a Week.

Now the first one is worded eat “less” processed food for a few reasons. Mostly because it’s not entirely realistic to prepare all of your food from scratch, at least not for most of us with double-booked, oh-so-active lives. And also because there are some really good companies out there making pretty clean (and colorful!) products that really do make your life easier.

A huge goal of mine is to help you decipher between the brands that are out to cut corners and make a buck and the brands that are leading pack with products made from high quality and minimally processed ingredients.

Vega Clean Exercise Fuel

I have long since been a fan of all Vega products, even before they were branded as “Clean” simply because they have always represented the industry standard for high quality, plant based protein products for athletes of all levels. Vega has been making plant based products for the endurance athlete before plant based products were in-style. They have, in my opinion, pioneered the space.

Fueling prior to exercise can be tricky because you want some energy to burn so you can push to your limits, but you don’t want to be full of a bunch of food that could lead to gastric or digestive distress. This is when a pre-fuel product can be handy and that is what Vega Clean is designed to do. With 100 simple to digest and easy to burn, clean calories. All you have to do is mix with water and go. It’s also loaded with electrolytes.

Vega Clean Protein

Vega Clean Protein

You all know I’m a fan of a good protein powder. I tend to be finicky with my plant based varieties only because so many of them are chalky and/or bland. This protein is made of pea, hemp, pumpkin seed and alfalfa protein. It’s flavored with cocoa powder and stevia and natural chocolate and vanilla flavors. One scoop has only 130 calories and 25g protein. For a plant based protein, that’s a hefty ROI!

Try this simple recipe for your next post exercise fuel feast:

  • 1 scoop Vega Clean Protein Chocolate
  • 1/2 Frozen Banana
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Flax Milk (any milk you like)
  • 1/2 cup Ice
  • 1/2 cup Water or Coffee

Directions: Put it all in the blender, press go and you’re set!
