About a year and a half ago Jon and I decided to go vegetarian. As athletes this was not a decision made lightly. It meant making sure we not only get the needed protein as usual but enough to fuel our athletics. Now as Jon has decided to become an Ironman and is doing a ridiculous amount of miles every week it is even more important. Something that is part of our almost daily fueling is a smoothie. When the opportunity presented itself to do a review of Vega Sport recover protein I jumped at the chance. Time to see if the Ironman developed performance protein can really help both a back of the packer and a brand new ironman!
On their website Vega says about this product:

- Improve strength and exercise performance
- Repair and build muscles
- Reduce recovery time between training
So this coming week we will be putting Vega Sport performance Protein (Vanilla flavor) to the test! We are getting ready to #fuelyourbetter
