I need to get some Vega One and some more protein powder but was looking at the protein bars. Would they be a good choice for a quick grab snack or when I'm traveling or are they really just designed for post workout recovery?

Bars are best for snacks and between meals. Post-workout you want a more isolated protein, that digests quicker than a solid bar, like a shake.

Here is a sweet testimonial of one of my clients who swears by Brendan Brazier's Thrive and Vega:

She's looks G-G-G-RRRRRRRRRRRREAT too!

I take almost all of the Vega Sport products and also use the Vega One nutritional shake. I read his book and have had great luck with their products supporting my training needs. BugsB, I snack on the protein bars all the time! I train 6 days a week, 2 hours a day and need the extra nutrition to keep up my recovery.

Anyone do anything special with their protein powders? Recently what I've been doing with the Sunwarrior protein is one scoop of chocolate and vanilla (1ea), a spoonful of peanut butter, a frozen banana, and almond milk and making a morning smoothie with all that. It's really good tasting but drinking it every morning does get a bit old (and time consuming when you have a shitty blender).

I use vega too, and think it'd be great to somehow fit it into something with a little extra nutrients... all the flavors taste gross to me in water by the way, but I love putting them in almond milk.

Well,
Here in Brazil 1L(0.2 gallons) of almond milk is as expensive as 60L(15 gallons) of water or 5L(1.3 gallon) of soy milk.
You are a lucky guy to have this available =) Sometimes I make my own almond milk, but it is way too time consuming.

My current protein powder is some industrial soy isolate made of non GMO soy beans. It is flavorless, just plain soy protein isolate. Man this stuff is nasty! It gets the job done but it is like taking medicine. I tried to make it taste better in a lot of different ways and the only good combination I could make so far was to mix it with bananas, pure cocoa powder, water and a tiny little bit of brown sugar if the bananas aren't tasting so sweet.

Man, I dream the day I could afford to use only Vega supplements, I got some samples from veganproteins.com and I think Vega tastes great with cold water, but I'm used to this nasty soy isolate. Not complaining about the price, Vega has a fair price, but customs almost triple the price.

You're right, I feel very lucky to live in a part of the world where both vegan supplements and things like Almond Milk are very cheap to acquire.

It can't be any worse than the post-workout creatine I started taking! It is supposed to be blue raspberry flavored, but tastes like liquid cotton candy and cough medicine. I have to hold my nose when I drink the 8oz.

On a side note, what is really tasty is if you take a vega protein bar and dip each bite in all natural crunchy peanut butter. Mmm. Being a vegan is tasty. 8)

I wish Vega was for sale anywhere in the UK. For now I use MyProtein's Vegan Blend.

Just a little question, i hope someone can help me :D. I'm buying my first tub of vega performance protein, I can't decide between vanilla and berries: wich do you think has the best flavour :D? I've always consumed vegaone in chocolate and i love it, i love vanilla too in general but i never tried berries protein powder, i'm really courios. Is vega berry flavour tasty?

Can't help you with the Berry Flavour, but the Vanilla Flavor has a strong and sweet Vanilla taste. It's not the fake vanilla taste of other supplements, it really tastes like vanilla. =)
If you order through veganproteins.com you can ask for a free sample along with your order so you can try the other flavors.

I just bought the Performance Protein in vanilla and I'm glad I did. It tastes good and doesn't have a weird "earthy" flavor a lot of other plant-based proteins have.
