Have a HEALTHY St Patrick's Day This Year!

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this product, free of charge,from Vega, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it.

This year instead of starting the day off with green tinted milk (that's for kids), how about enjoying a green smoothie that not only tastes great, but gives you 20 grams of vegetable based protein AND 2 servings of your daily vegetable servings, and only 110 calories, in it?

That means you not only get a smoothie that is good for you, you get one that will keep you full and sated until lunch time. how about that?

This great new Protein comes from Vega, a leader in the plant-based natural health and performance products industry, and one that I was new to! It has a great vanilla taste (and sweetness thanks to a touch of stevia), and because it is from plant based sources, it is easier on your digestive system too! Now you don't have to worry about those New Year's intentions to eat more veggies, that are wilting away in the bottom of your fridge.The most nutrient dense foods are found in the plant kingdom, and with the Vega Protein & Greens added to your diet, you can skip the veggie drawer and have a great morning drink that will get you going!Minimally processed, like how Vega does, means these whole plant-based foods, in this powder,give you more nutrition per bite (calories) than any other food.

Additionally, Vega products are certified vegan, Gluten-free, non-GMO, made without dairy or soy ingredients, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. So that means you are getting a VERY healthy and safe protein powder! You can mix 1 scoop of Vega Protein & Greens with 1 cup water, non-dairy beverage, or milk, shake and go! Or blend into your favorite smoothie recipe (but it in sweet fruit smoothies and your kids will NEVER know, trust me!), like these fun St Patrick's Day recipes from Vega (just click the link for the full recipe):

Made with a full avocado (for green coloring!), in addition to mint extract and a cup of cacao nibs (!!), this healthy recipe will fulfill your craving for a Shamrock Shake. The cacao nibs are full of antioxidants, and a scoop of French Vanilla Vega One offers 20 grams of protein in one serving.

Get your daily veggie fix with this nutrient-dense green smoothie. Whip up this low calorie option made with melon, cucumber, and spinach, which are all high in water and make this smoothie an extra hydrating way to start your day. perfect for starting your morning off to a smart start!
