I loved using these post workout in my shaker cup to get a quick supply of protein after a heavy lifting session.
They have 5000mg of BCAAs per serving as well as a little glutamine to help with muscle repair and recovery.

The vanilla flavor was great – I love anything vanilla. I didn’t find it too sweet, especially not just mixed with water. The berry flavor tasted like a strawberry-raspberry mix with a little tartness with a little sweetness; it was good!
I love that these proteins are 75% organic, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free; the first two are a must for me. I love using plant protein powders to supplement with, and they can’t contain any artificial anything, which is why I love Vega.
The SaviSeeds were neat little seeds with a great crunch. I think I would’ve preferred the chocolate ones more than the sea salt, but I really liked them. They’re different than any other nut or seed I’ve tried. They are the richest source of omega-3′s on the planet (13x more than wild salmon…impressive, no?) and are a complete protein. :)
I ordered a pack of the chocolate ones to try – can’t wait! I’ve been upping my cals since I’m lifting heavier and want to gain, so nuts and seeds have become my BFFs. ;)
What new products have you tried? What’s your favorite type of protein? Are you a fan of Vega & Sequel Naturals products?
