Well y’all know that my Iron Man race is in 2 weeks and boy is it crunch time! I’ve found along the way that 2 VEGA (plant based Nutrional supplements for athletes) have been kind to me and my GI Tract during my long rides and runs:
1) Vega Sport “Sustain” (during workout) Berry Gel:
I am sooooo picky when it comes to flavors and gels. Usually I just stick to the gooies and chews for quick energy on the bike, and I prefer some kind of vanilla flavor- but this gel is good for a quick boost on the bike. Funny enough- the Team and I all did “shots” of it originally together because we were afraid of the flavor. It had a bit of a chalky aftertaste- and that’s something for the THRIVE company and Beendan Brazier to work on and perfect.
2) Vega Sport “Pre-workout” Lemon Lime Energizer:
I really like this flavor and I actually drink it in water during my rides because it is like Gatorade- only better for you! It gives me the sense of rehydrating and not having that sticky weird flavor on your tongue like other sports drinks. All in all, a winner in my book.
Try some products for yourself! Visit Vega or order a copy of the THRIVE cookbook for healthy recipes!
See you on the road ~
