I loved using these post workout in my shaker cup to get a quick supply of protein after a heavy lifting session.

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?
